Thirteen Years in Prison for Writing Anti-Bank Slogans on the Sidewalk
OK, let’s see if we’ve got this straight now. If you’re a banking executive who cheated millions of people out of their homes and life savings, you’ll be punished with a larger bonus and a corner office.
If you write a few snarky slogans against banks on a public sidewalk in front of Bank of America — nothing profane or threatening, and using washable chalk — you’re facing up to thirteen years in prison on multiple counts of vandalism.
What was that quaint old phrase again, something about “Equal Protection Under the Law?” Nice theory anyway.
The infamous chalk vandal is Jeff Olson, and San Diego City Attorney Jan Goldsmith is determined to prosecute this vicious criminal on thirteen counts of vandalism. Jeff Olson could get a thirteen-year sentence AND be forced to pay restitution to Bank of America for “damages.” WTF???
Also — and this is shear coincidence, nothing to see here — City Attorney Jan Goldsmith has received large campaign contributions from Bank of America and Merrill Lynch. He’s running for mayor in 2016. And the chalk vandal, Jeff Olson, worked on the election campaign of San Diego’s present mayor, Bob Fillner, who was elected just last November. Again, these little coincidences have absolutely nothing to do with the fact that bank prostitute Jan Goldsmith is prosecuting Jeff Olson for writing anti-bank slogans on the sidewalk in front of Bank of America.
I can’t think of any profane comments at the moment. But if you’d like to contact San Diego City Attorney Jan Goldsmith and tell him what you think of his vindictive crusade — or make some lewd comments about his mother, or whatever — his e-mail address is email@example.com and his phone number is 619-236-6220.
