Remember the A-Team
? In every episode, some victim who for whatever reasons couldn't seek justice through official channels would seek out a band of underground mercenaries. Hannibal Smith and crew would put together wild plans to upend the bad guys, always unorthodox and often not quite legal.

and dumpster-dive for incriminating evidence
. An anonymous hacker or hackers accessed computer files from the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit
