Good grief, theses are squatters not campers. There are already plenty of laws to handle this.

From the article: “Taking up residence on national forest system lands and/or facilities is illegal.”

The enforcement action may have moved slowly, but it did ultimately enforce the law.

Believe it or not, it’s not the first or the last time it will happen.

This will NOT result in the forests being closed to all.

That rather worn TT is a little rough, but I think I could fix it....

But seriously though, absolutely no excuse for anyone to do that kind of nonsense to the open lands.. Shameful.

The cost of a regular patrol of places like this has to be much less than the cleanup & the cost of running this guy into court.

One bad guy should not ruin it for everyone. And, the people in charge should have been on top of it from the get go.

That is not a camp site. That is a squatter site. Entirely on the forest service plate hers. No way was this accumulated in 14 days.
Forest Service needs to monitor much more closely.

The FS doesn't have money to increase the amount of LEO's. BTW it takes an extensive amount of time to build a case for squatting; it's a LOT easier said than done.

Not promoting what happened, but the Government putting all the barriers up to landlords evicting people for failing to pay rent would make a great news story if the Government did the same thing to these poor people.
No Govt petty beauracrat wants to be the one who gets caught in front of the camera forcing those folks to move.

It's pathetic how little actual law enforcement gets done. The primary issue is the limited number of agents in the field to cover a vast landscape.

The officers depend on staff and public info so the more leads they get the more effective they can be.


More likely, the budget is spent on office staff rather than field agents. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't want rangers constantly harassing legal campers but when there is a two-week limit, that limit should be strictly enforced. This kind of junkyard didn't happen overnight. This is why we can't have nice things. [emoticon]

We camp a lot on BLM land and we rarely see any LEOs unless something goes wrong and people call them.
