    To "LDS Liberal" do you even read the articles before you post or do you just go for the political jabs.

    If you bothered to read it, you would see that he hated Limbaugh, and was taking from the cabins because he thought that those people had too much.

    He sounds a lot more like a liberal than anything else.

    "Elusive 'Mountain Man' was paranoid."


    I'm guessing he might be an Anti-Government, Tea-Party Republican.

    Do you suppose he will still be allowed to listen to KNRS [Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity, & George Noory] in prison?

    That little dog was a good judge of character. He knew his family was in danger.

    Billy Bob, explaining humor just destroys it. We all caught the sarcasm.

    Wait... I thought crazies like this were always conservative... but this guy didn't like Rush Limbaugh? My whole mind is blown! Oh snap! He also did his own redistribution of wealth because naturally the rich people who worked hard enough to be able to own a cabin didn't really deserve it! Please enlighten me, liberals who post here. How could one of your own be so crazy! I thought for sure he would be a fellow conservative, since crazies like this always are!

    (for those who can't sense sarcasm in text, this comment is full of sarcasm)

    The media should re-brand Knapp as the "mountain burglar", rather than "man". He doesn't deserve the title or honor of being called a "Mountain Man"!

    He's an obviously-mentally ill, reclusive, anti-social, maladjusted criminal who left an extensive trail of public fear, vandalism, destruction, trespassing, B&E crimes, profanity-laced religious bigotry (graffiti on religious objects, etc.), imminent death threats against law enforcement officials, theft, and now, attempted murder of police officers, etc. etc. etc., on and on.

    I'd guess Knapp is gonna be catching a years-long case of "cabin fever" (pun intended) now!

    I don't want to take any if the limelight away from this mountain man wanna be.
    But he will never be able to post comments as mountain man because I registered the name.
    And he can't steal that from me.
    You might be able to break into cabins and live in the wild. Evade law enforcement for months and months but you can't post in this newspaper as mountain man.

    Where'd the Emery County Sheriff learn to shoot?
