Banks Vandalized in Springfield, MO

The following is corporate media coverage of bank vandalism in Springfield, MO from the night of November 10/11:

Banks vandalized, likely by Occupy Wall Street protesters

by Ashley Reynolds, KY3 News

November 11, 2011

More criminal acts are associated with the nationwide Occupy Wall Street Movement, this time in Springfield.

Eight people were arrested during a rally in downtown Springfield.

Earlier Friday morning, at least two banks were vandalized. People with Occupy Springfield have not returned our e-mail messages to confirm that this vandalism is caused by someone in the group.

Both banks that were vandalized have common slogans and images with the Occupy Wall Street movement.  Some of the vandals wrote, “I’d like my bailout now” and “we do not forgive.”

The banks hit were the Bank of America on Glenstone Avenue at Battlefield Road and the Commerce Bank on Sunshine Street at U.S. 65.

  1. That…. Is some serious jumping to conclusions the reporter is making there. “People with Occupy Springfield have not returned our e-mail messages to confirm that this vandalism is caused by someone in the group.” is worded as if there is no doubt they were. This is bullshit.

  2. Here’s another peaceful protest option.

    I made a video protest recently for my blog. It is quite funny even if you are pro-megabank. I called my credit card’s customer service line to do some negotiating. Having a bit of leverage, I thought it presented a great opportunity to mess with them a little and make a few points about the unfairness of the credit card lending system. Since it’s a protest at home, I called it my kitchen counterstrike against Bank of America. I think you might enjoy it. http://www.ragingwisdom.com/?p=508
