I want to imagine the guy was just with a crowbar trying to lift a whole segment of the train tracks and then hiding it under his jacket

10 years is a lot but I'm sure some see this as desecration of an important cultural site. I'm not sure the US would be impressed if a Polish man tried to chisel a bit off the Lincoln Memorial.
