You see people?!  This is why we need The Purge.

There is also a similar unrelated story today regarding the same type of activity on r/chibike titled 'PSA Warning/Bike Punchers'. (unable to link)
Caution: Cyclists be aware.This type of 'thing' seem to be making a comeback in Chicago.

I wonder  if  it is  time  to  get  one  of these things and rig it to the handlebar. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Tt04ZSlbZ0
