    Has to be more to the story.

    Surely you can't just get into trouble for storing rain water.

    To me it sounds like he might of been taping into the Springs and taking the water from it.

    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat.

    That's mental. If you're stealing water from a stream or Spring I can understand. But if it comes out of the sky. Bullcrap.

    Seen a few refs to this being a "felony" elsewhere in the US. Some places even catching the rain off your roof and storing it for gardening or whatever is a Federal offence.

    Firstly, it's Utah, not the US. If you're going to insult us, at least understand how the ****ing country works. I see your comment in the youtube video though, and I understand you have some kind of underlying need to say the word "dictator" I hope your disorder clears up soon.

    Second. No way this stands. No one in the US supports this. The water isn't even used up, it doesn't make sense.

    He did something else. Had to.

    How can you steal water from a stream or spring.....? This is OUR planet. Why should we have to pay to exist on it.

    the only way would be to take so much water out of the stream that the people down stream don't get enough, there have been some lawsuits between states regarding this.

    I think they consider the theory of:

    Rain drops to ground/earth. Earth consumes it and stores it in the underground water channels u know. And earth resources belongs to government,public. So he stole from government and public? Ffs.

    He got jailed because he didn't pay for it.

    It's not classical capitalism. It's Capitalistic fascism, regarding this law anyway.
    This law could also have existed in the Soviet Union. Thou shalt not take initiatives of your own. You'd think people in the US would be a bit adverse to that....

    Who owned the sun again?

    Wasn't that some lady in Spain?
