Unpleasant design or hostile architecture:

Exactly what I suspected.
Coincidentally today I found out the name of this doctrine: CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design). It even has a real ISO standard. It starts appearing in my country too. Police promotes it as "safe neighborhood design", runs workshops for urban designers.
And thanks for sharing the research by 99%i, they are brilliant as always.
fyi for people from england and wales. There are some regulations about selling scrap metal you need to worry about. Might be safer to use all the metal bar in building projects or slip it into domestic recycling.
@persephone often if you blatantly wear a fluorescent warning vest people will assume you are from some maintenance department (rather than a random vandal) and are *supposed* to be removing the metal bars from the bench, and its not suspicious to carry allen keys if you ride a bicycle or drive a car (as many bolts on either use them)
