Vandals Reverse Supreme Court in Salazar v. Buono, Steal Cross from Mojave National Preserve

May 11th, 2010

Apparently these vandals were not satisfied with the Supreme Court’s opinion in Salazar v. Buono, so they took matters into their own hands.

From Stars and Stripes:

Vandals toppled and removed the 8-foot-high cross at Mojave National Preserve in California less than two weeks after the Supreme Court ruled the controversial memorial could remain on federal property.

The cross, which has stood in various forms for the last 76 years as a memorial to World War I soldiers, was stolen late Sunday night or early Monday morning, according to officials from the Liberty Institute, a conservative advocacy group that deals with church-state issues. In a statement Kelly Shackelford, the group’s president, called the actions “disgusting.”

Vandals cut through a series of metal bolts to remove the cross — still covered by a wooden box — from its concrete foundation.

I suppose this could be an example of Active Liberty?
