Gotham Street Justice for Bike Thief

Felix Salmon, the finance blogger for Reuters (formerly for Portfolio.com) is also a bicycle commuter in Manhattan. His many finance reports are interspersed with occasional adventures of a cyclist in NYC -- difficulties getting permission to take your bike up to your office in the elevator and such. Today, he links to a video of what happens if a thief makes the mistake of trying to drill off the lock that is securing a bike messenger's sole source of livelihood on First Avenue, while the messenger and his friend are enjoying a meal at a nearby cafe.
