    Yes. Trees are property. Live Oaks that are over 100 years old are worth tens of thousands of dollars. And those are for non famous ones. Plus, with the amount that he put in the ground, he may have ended up killing a bunch of other plants as well as poisoning some ground water.

    All in all, probably at least six figures of damage.

      That right there is the problem. He doesn't represent the University. Or even Bama Nation in general. He is one man and all this anger is misplaced. Be mad at him, not any and every Alabama fan you see. Roll Damn Tide.

        ^^^^^^^

        Very much this. His action cannot be condoned, defrock his ass, not allowed to wear red or the Tide logo anymore for lifetime.

        Going to jail in that state s/b preferable in his mind, at least in jail he will be protected most of the time but I would not count out an Auburn fanatic shanking him in the yard. He should hire bodyguards instead of an atty. He's out on bail now, wanna bet he gets shot before he makes trial?

          Does the state have separate cell blocks for Bama and Auburn fans?

            This.

            One of the biggest issues we have is the over-policing of this country will just plain silly jail terms for 'crimes'. He poisoned a tree. A tree that very few people (outside of Alabama) even knew existed before.

            I don't really see how it improves anything by, as some are saying, costing taxpayers to fix the mess he created, but yet they are going to spend thousands to keep him in jail over the next few years as well.

            A real punishment would be garnishing wages (even government assistance), supervised community service done on Auburn's campus, etc,.

            But poisoning a tree results in jail? C'mon, that's just silly. Leave jail to the murderers, rapists, pedophiles, drug traffickers, etc,. the people who REALLY deserve it.

                  A tree that's part of a school's tradition if you were an auburn student you would so ******* pissed at that guy. The tree isn't the long term problem. It's the ground water that, that guy poison with his herbicide. If people drink that water.. O god, theres going to be alot of sick people.

                    Are you really trying to justify leaving litter and writing notes to dying trees? I'm not even going to debate this.
