Update on the roll-over incident

WARNING: this has nothing to do with any of the other posts - it is an update (from the pirate4x4.com BBS) with some info that should make us all mad...

<font color=blue>"I see that many are getting the reply letter from the auther of the article and I thinnk that is good. On sat friends, family and the gecko 4wheel group went to the site and removed the salvage from the mountain. It took over 10 hours to get the jeep back on its wheels tie the tub to the frame and then winch the jeep to the first tier of switch backs. once up on the level ground the vehicle was dismantled and the good parts were taken out that eve. on sunday they returned to get the tub and frame fully off the mountain. We did rake and shovel back the ground that was tore up and removed dirt that had oil and 90 weight on it. The area is clean of all parts and scraps.
On a sad not some one had been to the wreckage before we gotr there and stole the atlas transfer case and the steering box support. The also attempted to get the tires and wheels but locks prevented them from this. if you see or know anyone who has just aquired an atlas it could be stolen from this jeep wreckage.

It was great to see all the support from fellow wheelers. be cafeful out there."</font color=blue>

It does not matter right or wrong about accident - but for someone to steal stuff off the Jeep is just plain LOWER THAN DIRT.... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]

In the animal kingdom there are vultures, and unfortunately they exist in the world of humans too, although I wouldn't classify
someone like that as human.

Sad isn't it? I would tend to agree - classifying them as human is giving them way too much credit [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Update on the roll-over incident

Wouldn't it me nice to have come around the bend and seen them stripping parts? I'd have hauled out the 9mm and capped them, leaving them on the mountain like a dead coyote, making sure no one was around of course. If you want to behave like an animal, I'll treat you like one, if you behave like a human, I'll treat you like one of them as well. The sad part is the person KNEW what an Atlas was and had the knowledge to get one off. Look on Ebay for Atlas', maybe it'll turn up. Then we can all go hunting together...

<font color=purple>Sadder still, someone not only knew it was an Atlas, but most likely knew where to find it - meaning, they probably had met the owner at some point. What a waste of oxygen that slug is.</font color=purple>
