Everything is a felony in the new America. In this story out of Goblin Valley State Park in Utah, some tax-slaves who pushed over a rock which was barely held in place by a patch of dirt may face second-degree felony charges.

The men say they thought they were doing the right thing.

From The Salt Lake Tribune:
Taylor said he knocked the boulder to the ground after seeing a family walk by on a nearby popular path. When he touched the rock, Taylor noticed it was loose.

"I put my hand on a rock and it moved," he said. "While we were sitting right there we thought, ĎMan if this rock falls itíll kill them.í I didnít have to push hard."

Taylor said that at the time he thought he was doing a "civic service" by taking down a loose rock. However, as he walked back to his car, he began thinking that he should have contacted a ranger about the loose rock. He also said he wished he could take back his actions.
Will regret be enough? Will public shaming be enough? Or must these men be imprisoned and made to be "felons" because they pushed over an inanimate rock?
