From the Duluth News Tribune 9-18-07
www.duluthnews.com

A desire to “have some fun” and “stir things up a little bit” has resulted in 79 criminal charges against five Ely men for an August incident in which campers in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness were harassed and terrorized. A petition also was filed against a 16-year-old.

According to the criminal complaints filed Friday by the Lake County attorney’s office, the suspects fired scores of bullets from four weapons, including a high-power, semi-automatic assault-style rifle, set off fireworks and shouted threats and obscenities at campers while traveling around Basswood Lake in two motorized boats on the night of Aug. 7.

One of the suspects told nearby campers “maybe if you make us smores for an hour we won’t [expletive] kill you,” one of the complaints said. The suspects also called out to campers hiding in the woods, threatening to kill one and rape his daughter.

That is the last thing a family or group of friends should have to worry about when taking time to enjoy camping in the outdoors.

It is a shame that people that low life people like these actually exist. If our justice system actually provides any justice, at least we won't have to deal with these individuals for some time.

I agree that it should be the last thing someone should have to think about is someone doing this in the BWCA.

Its a good thing for them that nobody on one of the shores didn't have a gun or fire back, things could have got real ugly real fast.
One thing we don't have to worry about is these crazy nuts ever screwing with anyones vacation again.

I'm sure there will be updates, I can't wait for the sentencing phase of this.
