    Well, that's particularly stupid. Fining a person that needed to be rescued? Come on!

    Stupid maybe. But fining someone cause they hurt themselves and were dumb enough to keep on hiking, getting lost then costing thousands of dollars for the search and rescue, genius. Serves him right I say. And I bet he wont do it again. But who knows, based on some of the stupidity of injurys lately he might.

    Fining a stupid person for being stupid sounds like an excellent idea.

    God, I hope so.

    Finally making stupid people pay for their own stupid mistakes. Awesome.

    They would've blew that money on something stupid anyway.

    I'm all for the fine, but expecting him to pay it within a month seems a little unreasonable. What happens if he can't pay it by August 9?

    I reeeeeally wanted the government to do this to that chick that was "abducted" just before her wedding a couple years ago. (She actually got cold feet and took off on her own, several states away.) I'd hate to think how many law enforcement dollars were spent searching for her before she finally revealed what had really happened.

    An Eagle Scout should've known better. If he was able to reach that rank, we know he's not inherently stupid--but he decided to go do something stupid anyway. IMO, that's much worse than being born stupid.

    Serves him right. And if he can't pay the fine by the time specified, oh well. Sucks to be young and stupid.
