Criminal charges considered for stupid assholes who destroyed 170-million-year-old Utah rock formation

Authorities in Utah are considering whether to press charges against a leader in the Boy Scouts who deliberately toppled an ancient rock formation in the Utah desert. The rock formation is estimated to have been 170 million years old. There may also be charges for two men who cheered him on in a YouTube video.

Two of the men, who were leading a group of 14 to 16-year-old Boy Scouts on a trip, said the top of the rock formation was loose and they feared it was dangerous.

“This is about saving lives,” Dave Hall, who shot the video, told The Associated Press on Friday. “One rock at a time.”

Emphasis mine. Saving lives. One rock at a time. You cannot make this shit up, people.

Christ, what a bunch of idiots.
