Last Call: Lock… and Load Edition

Robert Emslie April 18, 2017 Last Call 5 Comments

Last weekend the police arrested a 36-year old man at the Coachella Music Festival after revelers, using the Find My iPhone app, pinpointed him as the culprit in more than 300 phone thefts at the event. Way to go meddling teens! In shocking contrast to those music-loving impromptu private eyes, the owner of this scooter appears to be taking a far less active role in crime prevention.

Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day.  It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

    Pfft, just open the seat on the scooter and find the bolt cutters the owner users when they forget their keys.

      But then you’d have a scooter

        I suspect the ineffective locking strategy is a subtle way to encourage someone to take the damn thing. It’s really easy to get a scooter, but near impossible to get rid of them.

      Clearly my physics teacher was right. There is a HUGE amount of space between atoms, and they sometimes DO just slip past one another.
