Unbelievable. Someone sees a cop arresting someone in a manner that they believe is over the top, and suddenly there are 30 people around with their cell phones out. But someone using an angle grinder to steal a street sign in the dead of night, on a busy street, in full view of at least a half dozen pedestrians and three passing vehicles, and no one sees a thing.
