Gimme a hose and a scrub brush, I'll do it for half in about 15 minutes.

Wankers.

except given that chalk is not permanent nor damages the property it's not really vandalism.

I really hope this gets thrown back into their faces (the banks and the city). It's not really defacing if it's not permanent or a light rainstorm can take care of it for you. Hell a temp with a rented power washer can take care of it in under an hour.

According to Olson, one of the banks -- Bank of America -- said it cost them $6,000 to clean up the chalk writing.

This is the contact information for the person responsible for this case.  Note they are a government official.

Oh wait, I forgot.  In never rains in Southern California.  Never mind.

In my version it was going to be a bucket and a scrub brush, but This.
How could a bank possibly have spent $6k to do what the next rain storm would have done for free?
Fly the CEO in to take care of it personally?
Sidewalk Chalk Guy was right.

Yeah.  I once dumped some of my latte on a sidewalk.  I'm glad Johnny Law wasn't around, or I'd have faced a serious caning or worse for such an egregious violation.

But, every day, I walk past the spot of my vandalism, and I see the stain.  It makes me smirk knowing just how badly I stuck it to the man.

Uh-huh. I would press them to prove that in court. I think they'd back off instead of perjuring themselves.

Chalk doesn't damage or destroy concrete. You also notice that nowhere in the penal code is 'deface' defined in the CA penal code.

It cost Bank of America only $6K? They had to fly in a BoA vice president and assistant to supervise the operation. And truck to the site the special cleaning fluids and personnel to do the job. Or they could have one of their maintenance people do it.
 
2013-06-26 08:07:52 AM
It cost $6,000 to hose off the sidewalk? I'd love to see the explanation of that.

It's not vandalism by any stretch of the imagination. The person who commented on the original article who said this is third world country stuff is 100% correct.

"Bank of America -- said it cost them $6,000 to clean up the chalk writing."

Are you farking kidding me? I bet it cost them nothing to clean it up and the rest are the 'bank charges'...

Outrage is stupid.

Everyone is making a big fuss out of nothing.

This has gone way to stupidly far.

Thats all I am saying.

$6000 ?! What kind of chalk was it - radioactive anthrax chalk?

Can they show their fear any more than this?
 
2013-06-26 08:11:08 AM
Just wait, I don't think it's happened yet, but it will... Someone is bound to be prosecuted and sent to PMITA prison for 'defacing' a city, county, or other government online message board.

It could easily have cost them six grand to clean it up assuming the guy used sixty thousand dollars worth of sidewalk chalk.

I think the bank claiming it took $6,000 to clean the sidewalk is perfect example of what this guy was warning people about.
 
2013-06-26 08:17:05 AM
If this was on a public sidewalk then Bank of America was not responsible for cleaning it up, since it's not their property.  They only cleaned it because it embarrassed their business; then went straight to their cronies in the justice department to get them to make an example of someone who dare try to embarrass them.
This guy should first sue the city for selective persecution, then sue Bank of America.

Weaver95: Chalk on the sidewalk is worth 13 years in jail now?


It is if the goal is silencing dissent.

Martin Luther King Jr was arrested at least a dozen times for civil disobedience yet didn't spend years in prison for it. The people in power learned their lesson from the civil rights movement. Nowadays, civil disobedience can get one serious time behind bars so people think twice before protesting. That's what the gun nuts don't understand; the government doesn't have to kick in everyone's door, they just have to make most people too afraid to fight back.

I am going to prison for life. Tell my momma I left my will in the glove box.
 
2013-06-26 08:24:20 AM
This stinks of a payoff to the right people by the BoA to make an example of this serf. Everyone knows it's a stupid charge, it's stupid that they say they paid $6000.00 but no one will stop this from going to trial and having a sentence handed down to this poor guy just so that the rest of us have the fear of Hades put into us so that we don't speak out against our corporate lords.

Then you go with the plain dictionary meaning.  If it mars the appearance of something, it defaces it.

Hell, just wait for it to rain.

To be fair I can see this happening in a few other countries as well. Take Singapore or the UAE for example.  Hell I could see this exact scenario happening in the UK or Canada even. I don't know enough about other European countries to say but it's not like the Swiss of Germans are super happy when things are out of place or messy either.
