    What if, across the US, people went in borrowed beaters to Home Depot, parked out of range of security cameras, smeared a bit of mud on parts of the license plates of those beaters, wore totaly unremarkable clothing and dark gimme caps with long bills?  Whast if they hid their ears so video cameras wouldn't pick up those characteristics, and bought 4 or 5 cans of that waterproofing stuff paying in irregular bills in irregular amounts not all taken from the same withdrawal?   What if they did the same with bright playground chalk wherever they purchased it?

    Then, what if they passed those purchases all to other protestors?  What if those other protestors, pulled up to BOAs all over the US and parked out of range of camera pickup at BOA and BOA versatellers, and wrote "thieves and conmen" or similar slogans at the door or right in front of the machine, each time with an arrow pointing to the door or to the machine outside of the bank?  (What if they didn't do this INSIDE of malls or inside of stores with BOA versatellers because it'd be too easy to be caught?)  What if they did that at night when the BOA's were closed?  What if the camera confusing disguising even changed their hair color with cheap wigs at night and what if at night their weights and builds were also disguised with padded clothing? What if, as they were making the signs, one of them was working behind the graffitist by spraying that chalk and the sidewalk around it and up to it with that NeverWet stuff and the sealant coat?

    ...I'm gonna go with RICO prosecution for a thousand.

    Wicked bad idea.

    Also, that clean-up's not gonna be jackhammers, it's gonna be methyl ethyl ketone, which would be an environmental disaster.

      No one organized it so it won't be RICO.

      Ummmmmmm, damned few will be arrested and no one is reporting to anyone else.  BOA threatened me with a RICO prosecution on "change your bank day" and you should have heard the roars of laughter from others in line to pull out their money, as well.

      Mr. Chambers! Don't get on that ship! The rest of the book, "To Serve Man", it's... it's a cookbook!
