Occupy Jail, Occupy Big Banks

We are submitting to the mug shots of an activist photographer. We are confessing to crimes against big banks IN ADVANCE. So there is a pre-criminal condition that we share. The disappearers come at us from two directions. Jail and big banks. So we try to shed double light. First,
