"Metro says there is hope... in September, they recovered 6 stolen motorcycles." To paraphrase Adam Sandler well, whooptie, fricken dooooooooo.

I guess our local law enforcement agency is fine with the statistic (from a 2005 study from Progressive Insurance for metro areas larger than 500,000 people) that Las Vegas is FOURTH in the nation in it's bike theft rate... some two and a half times GREATER than the national average.

I wonder if we were fourth in the nation for homicide would they be saying "Don't worry there is hope, we solved a handful of cases last year".

Lame.

I hope the riding community no longer wonders why our bikes are stolen at an alarming rate... it would appear it's because our police believe they are doing fine with regard to this problem here in Vegas.

The police never seem to help with anything. I think pretty much all they do is go around writing tickets, just to collect money.
