Thieves cut a tree down to steal a bike, how messed up.
Well This Is Pretty Awful of the Day: Redditor TenThousandSuns posted this CCTV footage of bike thieves appearing to chop down a ginko tree in Kensington, Brooklyn, at 2 AM just to lift “a $50 department store bike locked with a $10 cable lock.”
That’s bad enough, but then it gets much worse: The tree was planted by the Redditor’s dad.
“My dad co-paid with the landlord for the foresters to plan[t] this specific tree. I don’t know if it’s actually his legally, but it’s definitely his in spirit,” he writes. “[M]y dad really wanted that type of tree as allegedly it’s very long lived. A legacy if you will.”
