One of the standard rules of every crime movie is the concept of the diversion. Set a big fire on one side of town and buy yourself response time to rob the bank on the other side of town. A friend of mine worked in security and he said punks do that shoplifting, too. Create a ruckus that will draw security and no one pays attention to the shoplifters.
The timing couldn’t be better. Between the pandemic, lost jobs, unpaid bills and all the crazy in the streets, not much being said about what’s being discussed and signed behind closed doors in the white house.
