Pee Poor Locking Job

I pulled up to the bike rack and took note of a Breezer Uptown bike that I hadn't seen before. It was a bike designed for city riding / commuting. It sported fenders, bigger tires, cargo rack, chain guard, kickstand and lights front and back powered by a dyno-hub. It even had an integrated rear wheel lock...
That's what really caught my eye and caused me to take a closer look...
Do you notice anything missing? Aside from the wheel lock, that was engaged, there is not another lock to be seen.

Sure, a thief couldn't just take the bike and ride off on it. However, there would be nothing to keep them from picking it up and throwing it in the trunk or truck. Once home, a couple swipes of the hacksaw would put an end to the wheel lock and they would have themselves a really nice city riding / commuting bike.
