LEO Stuff

FS Leo's came upon a large group of people camped along the "J" Road
- FS 70J. This was an area okayed for parking and camping by FS
Resource people. The officers ordered everyone to pack up and leave
their campsites because supposedly there was a rare Goshawk nesting
along there. The truth is that the Goshawk nest that the resource
people found was in a potential (as yet unused) parking area about
two miles away. This was a ruse by the officers to intimidate a group
of people to take down their camps and move for no real reason. There
were a lot of witnesses. I listened to two of them describe the
bullying way in which the order to move was given.
