Boy Scout Leaders Get Booted for Knocking Over Ancient Rock Formation

Occasionally, the boy scouts will do the right thing:

Boy Scout Leaders Get Booted for Knocking Over Ancient Rock Formation (And Recording It, Obviously)

Two Boy Scouts of America leaders were booted from their leadership positions in the organization on Monday. The two men, David Hall and Glenn Taylor, had been involved with the Boy Scouts until they did this. And took a video of it.

Not very scout-like indeed. The mushroom-like rock in the video is part of a formation at the Goblin Valley State Park in Utah that is thought to be 145 to 170 million years old. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the decision to remove Hall and Taylor “came from the council leadership, which referred to the men’s behavior as ‘reprehensible’ and a violation of the Scout principle of ‘leave no trace.’”

3. Good.

I watched that video.

It took effort to knock that boulder off and the "safety" excuse was just complete bullshit.

It was deliberate destruction, pure and simple.

5. Good. The 'rock pusher' is double plus stupid...

Not only did he screw his position as a scout leader but he was exposed as a fraud after recently filing a disability lawsuit.

6. They didn't have much choice in the matter.

Public opinion is so bad against these morons, and it is so obvious that these men are not what the Boy Scouts say they believe.

I hope that they are charged with the felony that they can be charged with, for being too stupid to exist. This belongs in the "dumb criminals" file---1) destroying a national monument, 2) while on a Boy Scout trip, 3) and making a video 4) that they post on the internet 5) shortly after this guy filed for a permanent disability for a back injury. This guy's life is over.

8. All good points...

 

I especially hate that they associated their stupidity with the Boy Scout brand. Glad they were given the boot...
