Boy Scout Leaders Topple Ancient Rock Formation

(YouTube link)

Three men face potential felony charges after they filmed themselves turning over a rock formation in Utah's Goblin Valley State Park. They posted a video of the incident on Facebook, in which the rock is pushed off its pedestal, and the men high-five each other. The men are unnamed in the story, but are tagged on Facebook as  Dave Hall, Glenn Taylor and Dylan Taylor. They talk about how they saved some child from potentially being hurt by the precariously-balanced rock. Utah state park officials say there will be consequences for their actions. A criminal investigation is underway. -via Viral Viral Videos

Obviously the "It's all about saving lives" bit is sarcasm. Nothing in the video appeared to indicate they were really Boy Scout leaders. Just three brainless hicks. If they are in the Scouts - wow.
It would be very difficult to fix that formation. Sure, you can put it back in place, but is it going to hold without help, like cement? What's the point, then?
As for the "these aren't men" comments, yes they are men. Emotionally stunted and immature? Maybe. Unable top appreciate real beauty without wanting to somehow leave their mark? Maybe.
Give them the highest fine possible under the law. Jail time would be silly. They won't learn.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
the point isn't that they moved rocks, it's the fact that they defaced a public monument. it's the same as if they knocked a chunk off of the washington monument. there are laws protecting state park lands. i agree with you about jail, though...a stiff fine, and kick them out of the scouts.
