Letter: What about Mormon respect for law?
First Published May 15 2014 01:59 pm • Last Updated May 15 2014 02:22 pm

What a disgusting sight on the front page of the May 11 Salt Lake Tribune. Some yahoo is holding a semi-automatic weapon as he rides past a sheriff’s deputy mounted on a horse.

What did he plan to do with that weapon? Shoot the deputy if the officer stood in his way? These are scary people who should be arrested.

Native Americans across the continent should raise their voices in protest at these white yahoos (many of whom are undoubtedly Cliven Bundy racists). Native Americans should have their own rally to block the canyon from these desecrators.

Utahns should avoid spending money in Blanding. Visit Moab or some other place with a better attitude about the environment.

Mormons should be particularly outraged. What happened to your 12th Article of Faith: "We believe in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law."

I’ve ridden ATVs in Southern Utah, and when I come to a private-property sign or closed-road sign, I turn around. I guess from now on I can ignore those signs and do wheelies in the fragile environment. If I see a Utah sheriff, or even Gov. Herbert, I’ll just rev my engine and wave because I know they will do nothing to enforce the law.
