Protecting Benches From Mean People

This thoughtful gentleman placed his bike in front of  bench in order to protect it from  mean people who might sit on it. Whole Foods store on River Street in Cambridge MA has a number of bicycle fixtures to lock bikes about 20 feet from this bench for people. But often bike riders those thoughful public spirited environmentalists park and sometimes lock their bikes to this bench. Once it was a Harvard University student who said what this man said, "It was only for a moment." Ah, yes the moment in which I think only of myself and everyone else be damned. How often is it small inconsiderate events like this that escalate into full blown violence?

After the bike was moved the woman seen here in pink sat on the bench after shopping in the store.
