Seriously, PEOPLE SUCK!! I just read this article in the LA Times and I'm just completely beside myself...

At least four ancient petroglyphs were cut from cliffs at the Volcanic Tablelands and dozens of others damaged in 'the worst act of vandalism ever seen' on federal lands in the area.

BISHOP, Calif. Ancient hunters and gatherers etched vivid petroglyphs on cliffs in the Eastern Sierra that withstood winds, flash floods and earthquakes for more than 3,500 years. Thieves needed only a few hours to cut them down and haul them away.

Federal authorities say at least four petroglyphs have been taken from the site. A fifth was defaced with deep saw cuts on three sides. A sixth had been removed and broken during the theft, then propped against a boulder near a visitor parking lot.

Dozens of other petroglyphs were scarred by hammer strikes and saw cuts...

This is horrible and sad. I really don't know what goes through people's minds to make them do something like this. It's sad and disgusting.

To go to that much trouble, it would take more than one individual to make off with those petroglyphs. Somebody will talk/brag about it and that will lead to their downfall and successful prosecution. A small fine and short prison term doesn't seem right for this desecration. The prosecutor should add conspiracy to the charges and rack up some more years for these idiots to write on their cell walls.

Why? what the hell will they do you with them? I can wrap my brain around stealing gold, cash and almost anything. But a rock?

Absolutely Disgusting what people will do for money. the Desecrators should be burned at the stake and the buyers Drawn and quartered alive... not to mention every penny they own forfeit to either the re construction, or if that is no possible, to further the preservation of the cultural history of the tribes involved and other tribal lands that being desecrated for profit. >:(:furious3::tantrum:

Makes me feel disgusted to be a White American Immigrant...

It makes me sick to hear and see things like this, I am disgusted there are people in the world like this. This is something that can never be replaced and now WE will never get to see. People like this should not be able to live among the rest of us! May be this should be the next point of destination before more F--ING %$#%@#$@$*@#%$%*#&$ idiots ruin the rest.

She shouldn't only loose her job. She should be sent to another country where women aren't so free. Lets see that scum of a women flip off a

It's good to see that those responsible are caught. I hope they get more than the old California slap on the wrist!! Maybe they should let the tribal people administer punishment.

First offense for this: 1yr plus a fine.
Oh boy...
Good idea let the tribe give them what's due.

Thanks for posting this up. I'm glad they caught the guys but, it sure does seem like the punishment, or lack there of, doesn't fit the crime. :rolleyes2:

Yeah the "punishment" is like a timeout for a little kid. And the sad truth is that it will probably happen again or get more areas closed.

We can only hope these guys are repeat offenders and get the big fine and decent time locked up.:yup:

Good to hear that they were arrested and the artifacts recovered. I can tell you I see it time and time again. Here in Cali the justice system is weak. Felons are being released from prison on probation with no supervision and first, second even third time offenders for things like this (property crimes) are literally getting a good finger wagging or a slap in the wrist. That part is unfortunate. Perhaps it's time for legislation to make theft or vandalism of artifacts of historical items a minimum of 10 years. Not that it'll deter these turds but at least encourage the justice system to lock them up for a while to think about it..... Rant over.

Agree with you 100%. Punishment does not fit the crimes anymore in california so what will stop the cycle....Me and my Smith and Wesson. Oh wait they are trying to take that away from me as well >:(

That's good to here that they were caught makes me fill better just knowing that the people responsible for this is caught. I my self as being a NATIVE AMERICAN from the NORTHERN UTE TRIBE I would like to scalp them my self haha no just kidding but to read some thing like this just makes me mad and wonder why someone would do something like this but I guess they must of really needed the money are some thing.

Hmm... Perhaps they could charge it as 5 incidents and be able to more properly punish those fools.
