This reminds me when I used to live in Aurora Indiana, a small town that was actually pretty expensive to live, considering a very few wealthy but
mostly working class people. If there was a “projects”, I certainly missed it in the 6 years I resided there. Anyway, I noticed a random bicycle
laying down on the sidewalk a few houses down from me. The Ohio River was directly across the street so it would sometimes be a busy place. I saw the
bike when pulling in my driveway, went to leave again within an hour and a couple cops was arresting a man right where the bike was. Didn’t think
anything of it till I saw a second person getting arrested in the same location, same bike, later that day. A couple days later my boyfriend and I was
walking home from a nearby bar, got right in front of my house and there’s the damn bike! My boyfriend (who’s an advet bicyclists) goes to look at
it and touches it and says “nice bike, man that’s a BMW!” I filled him in and yelled at him not to touch the damn thing! Bait Bike. Oh and not
just theft, Grand Theft due to the value of the bike! So my point is, is it wrong for law enforcement to set up bait in the projects? Yes, absolutely!
Is it wrong for law enforcement to set up bait in the working class? Yes, absolutely! All I’m saying is, if that bike was to sit in front of our
house more than a day, and we wasn’t aware of it being a bait bike, my boyfriend would have taken that damn bike!
