[Summit] Were the bikes locked up?

Exactly. Geesh!

The only reason I asked about whether the bikes were locked was because I was curious about the thieves (i.e. did they cut a chain, like they did with me, or just pick up unattended bikes). Not to point any fingers or start a socio-economic argument.

  Don't over think this.  Stealing kids' bikes is wrong.

    I was responding to your sarcastic remark.  As for the ethics of it, you know very well that there is no consensus among Americans today as to whether the law is a valuable prop of a praiseworthy social order, or a force of oppression mustered against oppressed people (usually peoples of color).  No pronouncement about ethics will ever settle that controversy in favor of one side or the other.  We will never again have any national unity about ethics or morality or law.  The divisions in the United States run too deep, and have become too entrenched by now.  -- Bob M

      It's irrelevant if they had the means to cut a lock. They took something that did not belong to them. They had NO ethical conscience.

      No, James.  It's worth knowing whether those two thieves had means to overcome a bicycle lock.  Many don;t, some do.  Bob M
