It seemed like a good idea at the time….
Two Boy Scout leaders got into trouble when they toppled an ancient rock formation in Utah’s Goblin Valley State Park. The rock was loose and they were afraid it would fall on someone if they didn’t do something. In hindsight they realize they should have told a ranger instead of taking the matter into their own hands, but instead one of the fellows pushed it over. That was bad enough, but the other one videotaped it and put in on Facebook. By the time he realized that was a bad move, it was too late — someone had already posted it on YouTube and it had gone viral.
Utah has launched a criminal investigation, and the Boy Scouts are condemning the two. The video does make them look bad, but I feel sorry for them. What about you?
