Boy Scout Leaders Booted for Toppling Ancient Rock Formation

Goblin

The three nitwits who toppled an ancient rock formation in Utah's Goblin Valley State Park and posted it on the internet for all to see have been booted by the Boy Scouts, the Salt Lake Tribune reports:

David Hall and Glenn Taylor no longer will serve as leaders in the Utah National Parks Council, according to a news release from the Boy Scouts of America. The decision came from the council leadership, which referred to the men’s behavior as "reprehensible" and a violation of the Scout principle of "leave no trace." … The decision to remove the men, Gailey added, came over the weekend after conversations with park leaders, the attorney general’s office and the LDS Church, which sponsors the troop.

In related news, the idiot who actually pushed the rock over is involved in a lawsuit claiming disability:

Taylor is now facing additional scrutiny after it was revealed that he filed a suit claiming he endured “great pain and suffering, disability, impairment, loss of life” stemming from a 2009 car accident, according to ABC News affiliate KTVX-TV in Salt Lake City, Utah. According to KTVX, Taylor said in the documents he has incurred an estimated $5,000 in medical related expenses.

Alan Macdonald, who is being sued by Taylor because it was his daughter who hit Taylor’s car, told KTVX that he was “highly offended” by Taylor’s actions.

“Somebody with a bad back who is disabled who can’t enjoy life to me doesn’t step up and push a rock right off its base,” Macdonald said.

    We’re dealing with a real brain-trust here.

    Video your felony level criminal acts which also implicate you in insurance fraud, then post them to the internet to be viewed by over one billion people — what could go wrong?

    JAMAL – as the most self-engorged racist on this site you should know that the white jerks can only be following in the footsteps of the over-abundance of black male criminals who set the pace for stupidity just about everywhere.

    Great Boy Scout “leaders” that the Mormon church had set up as roll models for young scouts. They not only taught felony crimes like destroying unique and priceless rock formations that were an estimated 200 MILLION years old. THE LDS church KNOWINGLY hired among them a deplorable boy scout leader who would teach yet another fine example: how to lie and get fraudulent disability payments from an accident. Is this to teach a scout to be “trustworthy”? How can one expect the Mormon church to teach something that they so obviously know nothing about themselves. AT LEAST THE SO CALLED LEADERS WERE NOT GAY! That would truly be “reprehensible” in the current and ardently defended doctrine of the church. Can anyone REALLY expect the same corrupt Mormon church Boy Scout replacements to be ANY different?

    No.

    I certainly take offense at what Jamal says. Not all straight white men are flaming assholes anymore than curly “any color men” are always prefect. I’m married to a straight white man who has hiked the Utah rock countless times and wouldn’t dream of leaving a gum wrapper behind let alone desecrate the phenomenal landscape.

    So the Boy Scouts were fine with these two idiot ‘Rednecks’ until they were dumb enough to post their crime, but any gay man is unfit to lead a group of young men. Not by actions, but who he happens to be.

    I had a co-worker once, who claimed he was disabled (back pain) from his former construction job of re-roofing houses. He had a handicap placard, Doctor’s exemption stating he should not lift anything over 10lbs., wanted the office retirement plan to pay for him to go on permanent disability. He would forget he was “disabled”, and show off by doing standing back flips in the office. Idiot.
