    Boy Scouts destroy Goblin Rock Formation

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/1...n_4122488.html



    The "goblin" the group knocked over, also known as a "hoodoo," forms when a harder rock sits atop softer rock. Over millions of years, the harder rock on top protects the softer stone directly beneath it. The soft matter elsewhere erodes, leaving behind a pinnacle. Rocks in Goblin Valley date back to the late Jurassic period, around 160 million years ago.

    A felony, and little chance to get a good job later in life for pushing a rock over? Give me a break. Was this stupid as hell? Yes, but this was about as victimless of a "crime" as you can get. I'd like to see them try to explain this crime in prison.

    The highest level they should be held accountable is to the boy scouts, and maybe have to pick up trash in the park

    Like Nick said in another post, when people get wrapped up in a case, logic can get thrown out the window, and it looks like that is what happening here.

    I'll have little faith in the justice system if they actually got charged with a felony. Hope I'm not stirring the pot too much here, rant over

    I agree with you regarding the felony but this is offensively stupid. There's gotta be a legal disincentive; perhaps a heavy fine.

    So the guy who pushed the rock over is suing someone for disability due to a car accident ...

    I think that case is about to be tossed out.

    This profile page of Dave Hall was posted on a story about this.

    Notice his job:
    Executive Director Legal Shield
    Wonder if he's got "affordable" legal counsel

    Building a quiver is just foreplay for snowgasms
