Murderers Run Amok at Yellowstone

Yellowstone’s ‘Zone of Death’: The 50-square-mile district in Idaho where ‘you can get away with murder’ because it has no people and no one to sit on a jury

  •  A small 50-square-mile section of Yellowstone National Park sits in Idaho
  • This area is called the ‘Zone of Death’ because you can get away with crimes
  • This is because of a loophole in the Sixth Amendment regarding a jury 
  • It says a person is entitled to a jury from the state and district where the crime was committed
  • However, Zone of Death has a zero population and crimes would be dismissed 

Trump Signs the Great American Outdoors Act

Press Release:

President Trump Signs the Great American Outdoors Act, Preserving and Protecting our National Parks

“Each year, millions of people from all over the world visit and enjoy our national parks. Yet today, more than 5,500 miles of paved roads, 17,000 miles of trails, and 24,000 buildings in our national parks are in need of maintenance improvements.

Fulfilling President Trump’s promise to restore, conserve, and protect America’s lands, the Great American Outdoors Act provides the necessary funds, dedicating up to $1.9 billion per year for five years to fund deferred maintenance projects identified by the National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and the Bureau of Indian Education. These infrastructure updates will preserve our most important national treasures and give more American families opportunities to explore the great outdoors.” . . . (more)
