Of course. If you or I created a freaking mess, dumped garbage, etc. on public property we would be fined and/or jailed and be responsible for the cleanup. Too bad nobody in govt has the will or the b___s to do anything about it so it will only become a larger festering cancer on our society.

No we wouldn't be jailed, just given a ticket. That's the problem.

Because living this why and allowing this kind of behavior is unacceptable in our community and anywhere there needs to be stricter laws and rules and regulations to get either these people out of here or get them help one or the other I've lived here my whole life and I've never seen anything like

We were cited for the 14 day rule because we stayed from 1st elk season thru 2nd elk season. Our camp was clean and we didn't leave any garbage or damage. All we were doing was hunting. Guess we should have said we were homeless.

"No Camping" means no camping. Period. China Hat is not a campground. Period. So remove these transients. Holly Jewkes of the Forest Service has blood on her hands for the death of Courtney Carrol due to fire. Holly Jewkes did not enforce the no camping law. Now we have lost a life.

Dispersed camping is permitted in most Forest Land, up to 14 days. The problem is that the Forest Service lacks the authority to enforce that, other than writing tickets.

Public lands are just that, public. There's no right to buy them and the people living there aren't even buying them. They're squatting. And squatting is theft

We need to do much more to protect the innocent people being threatened by dangerous homeless people who have no respect for land owners and visitors to central oregon.

People will push the limits cause they know they can. Homeless can get away with ALOT more than people who try. Just one example is litter! I throw litter out the truck window I will get fined. Go figure!!!!

I pay taxes to live here. Can I go out into the national forrest and build a 3600sqf foot house anywhere I choose and live for free? The USFS would kick me out immediately without any of the excuses they use for the homeless issue.

This is the most silly question ever! If they are breaking the rule they should be fined like everyone else! To have the local residents that pay taxes and have their residence set up there put up with this is off the chart! Is so wrong! Something needs to be done! Very sad, very wrong!!! Wake UP!

Absolutely yes. No real punishment is the same as encouragement. These folks need to have a reason to change their situation.

These homeless people need to get jobs and clean up their messes. They throw all kinds of horrid trash all over the countryside

Yes but it would apparently need new laws at the Federal level. As it stands now, the only thing the FS can do is issue a ticket.

The homeless situation is not acceptable and is ruining our forest and public areas to enjoy. A fourteen day rule should apply to everyone.

I'm a lifetime Girl Scout (kinder to college years). It's one of the few programs that provides a wide range of opportunities for young girls. Investing in youths future is important and I'm happy to see that Troup 69 is working on a wonderful goal to travel! GO GIRLS!!!!

If you're so enamored with Idaho, move there. It's what an adult would do. Sadly, we're not dealing with adults. The child would inconvenience the majority to get It's way. Hint: the border will never be moved, quit wasting our time. This adult is staying in Oregon. The children can move.
