Petty crime is petty, that’s for sure.
There is nothing more frustrating than being the victim of a pointless, small crime. For instance, having your bike stolen. Sure, there are bicycles out there worth thousands of dollars, and those are almost exclusively owned by grown-adult hobbyists who have the ways, means, and security to keep their investments safe. These are high-dollar targets for criminals who know what they are getting themselves into
But stealing the bike of a teenager? That’s just sleazy. And pilfering the ride from a cancer-fighting young man is just plain despicable.
That’s why police in Florida made an extra effort to set things straight this week.
Daylin Campbell got a mountain bike for Christmas, but he wasn’t able to ride it because he’s been battling leukemia.
The 13-year-old had been building up his strength and looking forward to taking the bike out for a spin.On Monday, somebody stole it off the porch of his home in Lake Wales, Florida.
Daylin was upset, certainly, but also confused. The young man just couldn’t understand why anyone would want to steal his bike, which was adorned with “Daylin Strong” stickers – something that made the ride especially personal.
Then, this happened. [Author’s note: Now is a good time to reach for the tissues.]
The police had thought of everything…including a bike lock.
Now Daylin’s only worries are beating Leukemia and getting enough good weather to cruise around the neighborhood.
