Title

Two separate issues in St. Anne's incident

Description

Trespassers need to be accountable for their actions and breaking the law should not be justified for any reason, regardless of local tradition. The caretakers response to frequent trespassing and vandalism shouldn't have been a surprise. "They got what they went after,"[the thrill] the author states.
Two separate issues in St. Anne’s incident

To the editor:
1. Trespassing, looting and vandalism have a long-term problem at St. Anne’s and other canyon properties.
2. Two groups of teen-agers admittedly trespassed within 24 hours, seeking a thrill as their excuse. They got what they went after.
3. The trespassers initiated the whole affair by their admitted trespassing, the caretaker “reaction” with the background of vandalism in the past was to be expected, but was taken seriously enough for charges to be filed by the county attorney against the caretakers. Their actions will be heard in a court of law.
4. The actions of the caretaker, “if proven to be criminal” do not excuse the trespassers of their illegal behavior. “One can not justify his bad conduct by the bad conduct of another.” The trespassing teen-agers should answer to the laws for their behavior regardless of the caretaker’s actions. They are two separate issues.
5. Our local attorney’s statement, “every teen in Cache Valley” went up to St. Anne’s for the thrill of it, is not true and doesn’t justify the illegal behavior but speaks volumes on her guardianship of law and order.
6. Teen-age drinking, a keg of beer in the canyon and fast driving are all done for the “thrill” but are illegal and not accepted by society.
