Oh, I should also add... That'll teach these dumb transplants in Dyker Heights. This is Brooklyn. If you don't know better, you should go back to the cul-de-sac where you came from!!

(How was that?)

Are you 2 for real??? READ THE STORY! Someone broke into a garage to steal a bike and you're going on about bicycle riders, and assuming where the victims came from?

Please, just stay at home with your tiny little minds, and stay away from the keyboard. You are just embarrassing yourselves.

There's always crime around that location. NYPD should set up one of those EYE IN THE SKY booths for a while.

Why Concerned? Are you one of those wussy transplants from the trust fund haven of Akron, Ohio? Can't handle "real Brooklyn"? Go back to where you came from!
