We're trying to push City of Toronto to do the same thing. The
latest example: 2000+ bikes were seized by the police as "evidence"
of one notorious bike thief. Many groups made depositions to the
city to get the bikes. The newspapers just announced that they will
be sold to pay for his court case. Maybe it's a Canadian thing?
I believe the issue is that the Police told people that if theft
reports (with serial numbers) had never been filed then the Police
could not legally return any bikes.
