"Security cameras captured Stephen Lee and Curtis Felts each walking off with a set of antlers, police said. Investigators are now checking to see if the actual theft was caught on camera.
The victim is a 56-year-old professional elk hunter from Idaho."

"I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy.'"
President John F. Kennedy

We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
