Anti-bank messages (in chalk) = 13 years jail + $13,000 fine

SAN DIEGO - The case against a North Park man who wrote anti-big bank messages on city sidewalks with chalk will go to trial, a judge decided Tuesday.

Jeff Olson is charged with 13 counts of vandalism and is facing 13 years in jail, as well as $13,000 in restitution fees.
...
According to Olson, one of the banks -- Bank of America -- said it cost them $6,000 to clean up the chalk writing.

Does the cleanup involve drinking the 6 pack first?

Wow, is there any stronger message than to move to a credit union when a bank spends 6000 to clean up chalk!

I hope the credit unions subtly come to the aid!

They could have waited for it to rain!?! More like they took a $6,000 lunch and had to find somewhere to hide the cost.

At least these annoying spam posts are reviving some interesting old threads!

If they went thru and randomly bumped old threads every night it wouldn't be so bad.
It would almost be like doing a service.

More likely $6000 is what the bank got billed by the local council or local authority, after it was cleaned up.


Interested in a wide variety of low premium legal tender World Silver coins, average conditions is fine.
Will pay a decent premium for a variety different silver coins in single lots, not looking 10, 20 or more of same coins.
Note I tumble these to clean them before I put it in jars for display, so I dont want to buy any rare coins for preservation.
