Death Valley Vandal Identified Himself and Apologized

UPDATE: Man wanted for illegal acts of vandalism at Death Valley National Park (Posted 4/14/2020)

The original story of vandalism the Sierra Wave posted on April 14 generated great indignation from park visitors.

Charges have not been filed again the man yet. Penalties could include a fine and/or restitution charges. The man’s cooperative attitude will likely be a mitigating factor.

He “exonerated” his dog, Lacy, which only goes to prove that “you can pick your friends, but not your relatives’…unless, of course, you are a dog. While a dog might well be “man’s best friend,” what choice does it really have?

The official press release below from Death Valley National Park Service gives more details.

    Kudos to this guy for fessing up. More than many would be willing to do.
    How about a sentence of 80 hours cleaning graffiti from public lands.

    That’s about as satisfactory conclusion as you could want. Pay for the cleanup, and don’t do it again.
