“Dear PoPville,

I had a strange but significant situation happen to me on this past Saturday morning, and wanted to get your advice or how would you handle something like this. Saturday right outside of McDonald’s restaurant on H Street in N.E. a young man was offering a bike for sale, he was asking $20 this was for a fully loaded top of the line ‘Giant’ brand bicycle. I thought to myself why is he offering it so low and is it stolen? I immediately thought back to the many times I was a victim of bike theft and thought no way was I even going to think about purchasing this ‘steal’ but how would you handle it? Would you have called the cops, who happened to be within two yards away parked in the parking lot or would you not say anything and walk away? What do you do in a situation like this?”
