    In the couldn't possibly be true category...

    "A North Park man is looking at more than a decade behind bars for using washable chalk to protest the banking industry.

    Jeff Olson is being charged with 13 counts of vandalism for writing anti-bank slogans on sidewalks outside three Bank of America branches."

    The two best parts are Bank of America claiming cleanup cost $6,000 and the judge ruling his defense attorney couldn't mention first amendment rights during the case since this was a vandalism case and not a free speech case. Facing 13 years, only in America.
