‘Help Me Try Get Her Back’

I can’t believe I’m posting this but some absolute SCUMBAG stole my brand new bike from The Point Village [in Dublin] on Sunday and I’m actually heartbroken. Can you please share this and help me try get her back. She’s a blue Martello Sutton. I’d really appreciate it, I’m so gutted. (It was taken from North Wall Avenue and the flowers are easily removed).

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news but the best thing you can do is forget about this bike, I would be amazed if you ever see it again.
    I had two great bikes nicked in the last few years…like yourself I was absolutely gutted. My disappointment was only compounded by the crushing air of indifference I encountered when I went to my local Garda station to report the theft. The Guard at the desk was just short of doing an impersonation of Chief Wiggum typing up the report on his magical typewriter type scene….

      Don’t let one person’s negative experience put you off. Be sure to report it. The gardaí have stacks of recovered bikes but cannot identify the owners with the result that they end up being auctioned off.

    “Absolute naughtypants” you can’t write that on Broadsheet! The perpetrator is the real victim. forced in to a life of crime by an uncaring fascist regime.

    I thought a Martello Sutton was a tower. It’s worth 250 yoyos to replace. But honestly leaving a bike in North Wall? Are you mental?

    You might be Lucky. A member of my family had two bikes nicked over the last six months and got both of them back Check Done Deal and any of those other websites (That’s how he got one) The Gardaí were really helpful to him he told me. He used Social Media also and got the word out to everyone he knew who di the same. It took a few months but the (horribly Expensive) bike he lost was spotted by a mate of mine who had seen a social media piece like this.

    Keep the faith. (And if you don’t get it back may the miscreants impale themselves on the handlebars and suffer from the screaming ab dabs all their live long days…)

    now, don’t judge me for this but I reckon you should go out and steal a bike from someone else. then as you’re cycling along you can ponder the greater question of 2 wrongs don’t make a right vs needs be as needs must.

      A kind of ‘Pass It On’ deal except with questionable morality.
