    The only thing that was wrong is posting it. Who's to say they didn't save some one's life by making the bolder safe.

    This is a terrible decision by our Utah legislators. I saw destructive grafitti that an organized group of young men did in Little Wild Horse canyon a few years back that went unpunished as well. What kind of message do we send when we say people will do stupid things but stupid things can go unpunished?

    My concern about this level of regulatory oversight is that it will result in unnecessary regulatory costs, more frivolous lawsuits, and no discernible benefit to Utah citizens. Funding that will have to be devoted to enforcement of such laws would better be spent on developing educational opportunities for visitors and users of State lands.

    I am doubtful that there are enough visitors to Utah State lands to justify the effort of passing and enforcing such rules. Most who visit these areas are already fanatic about the freedom of the hills and the preservation of wilderness. Imposing stricter regulation will not prevent stupid people from doing what they do, but it will effectively penalize everyone who happens to respond to the call of nature behind a bush in the remote wilds.

    A felony is over the top...dumb thing to do...but it IS just a ROCK. Guaranteed to fall on its own eventually. We are going to ruin a man's life for that?
