Creep? What are you, the New York Post? Stick to the facts, please. This is not a good guy, but there's no need to use this language.

Sealing a bike is a huge offense in these parts, hence the "creep" title. Ranks just under vehicular manslaughter.

Not all creeps are thieves but most thieves are creeps.
