There are senseless crimes and there is this. Four guys hanging out in Brooklyn early yesterday morning chopped down a tree so that they could steal the bike that was chained to it.

That seems like a whole lot of effort on a sweltering evening to get what is described as a cheap bike. The worst part about the whole video is that after they destroy the tree and make off with the bike, they just leave it there on the ground. Man, if the cops don't get these guys, Greenpeace is going to mess them up!
