CNN won't be reporting this. Wonder if the WSJ or Washington Post will? I swear this country has turned into Grand Theft Auto 2021 LIVE!

beezeltown: How the hell did they defeat the time locks? (Article was paywalled for me)

When I worked in branches, like 20 years ago, we had multiple ways to trigger a silent alarm, all over the place. The way you open a safe can be done in different patterns. We were trained to change the pattern in a very slight way to trigger a silent alarm, but still open the vault. Inside the vault were a variety of triggers. Essentially, it's pretty damn hard to force bank employees to do anything without multiple, very difficult to detect opportunities to trigger a silent alarm.

Most robbers hit the teller line and GTFO. It's the best strategy, to move very fast and get the hell away. Going into the vault? That takes time. By the time you reach the vault, an astute employee will have already tripped at least one silent alarm.


Even my home alarm system had that (in my last house). If you are being coerced you enter your code plus one. The alarm in the house goes off and looks disarmed, but it calls the company and they call the police.

Ask me how I found out.

The alarm company wouldn't even accept my password, as I might have been coerced to give it.

Way back in the day, those of us who had codes to the alarm system at work had to get a refresher demonstration on proper arming and disarming.  One of the managers entered his code then hit "A" to arm it, locked the door, and went home.  Yeah, no.  Hitting "A" dispatched an amberlamps.  (Hitting "F" would get a fire truck.  Hitting "P" summoned the popo.)  So the ambulance crew showed up to a locked and dark building thinking there was someone unresponsive inside...

When I bought my current house, there was an alarm panel.  By the master bedroom, not the front door.  It wasn't connected to anything.  WTF?  Patching that hole was one of my first projects.  There was a lot of weird shiat in the house that seemed like projects that were started and never finished.

Goldman Sachs was selling CDO bonds through 2008 and selling insurance on those same AAA rated bonds to other investors since they knew the CDOs were worth less than dog shiat.  After the crash they received the equivalent of hundreds of billions of dollars in bailout benefits and profited handsomely by ditching the assets leading up to the crash.
Not one Goldman or ratings agency executive was arrested or faced charges.  Even worse the chief risk officers were not even questioned.  The sec of Treasury was Hank Paulson who's last job was CEO of Goldman, and his lackey Geithner punished regulators who tried to sound the alarm bell as early as 2004.  Millions of Americans lost their homes and or everything.
