See, this one I get. Just a bad situation for the bicyclist here. I mean let’s face it, if you’re riding around with three outstanding warrants, the FIRST thing you’re gonna do is try to get ahold of somebody else’s ID just in case a cop pulls you over. Self-preservation 101. Pretty sure that’s what dad always taught me: if being yourself ever starts to be a disadvantage, go be somebody else. Pretty sure that’s what he said.
Anyway let’s be real for a second. You’ve got three outstanding warrants and you’re just bombing around town carrying the wallet you stole a week ago? Bro I’ve never stolen a single thing in my goddamn life but I’m pretty sure even I can figure out that you ditch the evidence after you grab the cash and max out the cards. Am I just totally one step ahead of everyone here? Am I some kind of thievery genius? Or is this guy just the dumbest motherfucker ever to sit on a bicycle?
