The Cardboard Cop Deterrent

Though I first got wind of the cardboard-cop-as-bike-theft-deterrent in this Grist story, the ability of a life-size, two-dimensional likeness of a police officer to decrease the number of bikes stolen from Boston's Alewife subway station caught the attention of outlets from Fox to Esquire.

Check out the NewsBreaker clip below or buy your own corrugated policeman. The challenge will be figuring out how to fold him into a portable pannier-size package for pop-up protection wherever your next ride takes you.
