I have no idea what the actual facts of this situation are. If he did in fact break the law, he needs to be punished accordingly. I don’t know if he did and if so, to what extent. Plain and simple.



A news article,is a news article,be it on the net,your local or national news channel or in your local news paper.
He admitted to doing it so,yeah.

“While hiking in the Moab area with my family, I drew with a sandstone shard, a heart with my and my wife's initials and the year above it."

“I accept full responsibility for my actions,” Andersen wrote.
“Neither Andersen Hitches nor its hard-working employees, who are committed to supporting our loyal customers and their own families, had any involvement in my wrongdoing. To those dedicated employees, I offer my sincere apology. Going forward, I will do everything I can to show my employees, my community, and the public at large that this conduct is not what I stand for.”


Andersen faces a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a fine of $100,000 if he is charged and convicted of a Class A federal misdemeanor for willfully defacing public lands.

I don't see anyone here being upset with his business nor trashing it.I see concerned folks (rightfully so) being upset with our public lands being trashed.Here in America,we are all so blessed as land stewards.We all collectively own millions of acres that must be cared for and respected.
We must trust the authorities to protect our set aside sections of mother earth that is protected for wildlife,for our recreation and our enjoyment.If not for us,then our children.The witness who saw him was right."He can't do that".




All life is sacred and all creation is related, what we do effects the whole Universe, so let us walk in balance with Mother Earth and her people." - Smiling Bear

He’s not the sort of person I do business with.

End of story.

The guy messed up. Impulsively acted without really thinking. He regretted his actions and owed up to it.

He needs to get his wrists slapped, reasonably fined with proceeds used to remediate the damage (or a like worthy cause). And then we should all just move on.

Slapping his wrists isn’t going to remediate the damage he did. Neither does a small fine.

Do you think he needs a participation award too?

By the looks of it, the guy is a two time offender.

maybe a little time in the greybar would help, along with a permanent ban from setting foot on BLM and NPS lands.

The term used was "reasonable" fine. You turned it into "small". How much does it cost to un-scratch a rock?
Yes it is very possible this is a second offense, but it'll never be proven to any legal standard.
The guy is a childish jackass, I don't think there is much debate on that. IF what he did is in fact against the law, I hope he gets an adequate/appropriate fine. I don't know if it's even been established if this was an illegal act or not. I mean actually established, not speculated on this site.
As much of a stupid turd I think he is, I think people calling for debilitating fines and jail time for scratching a rock need to get a life. Get over it. Let the legal system do it's job. I think he's going to be paying for this the rest of his productive life. He's already been tried in public opinion, and the internet makes for a damn big jury.
