VIDEO: Criminalizing America: Frozen Out of Justice
Three-time Indianapolis 500 champion, Bobby Unser, and his friend were snowmobiling in the mountains of New Mexico when sudden heavy winds caused a blizzard. They abandoned their vehicles and wandered for two days in subzero temperatures, nearly dying in the process. After they survived, Unser asked the U.S. Forestry Service for help finding the snowmobiles they had left behind. Instead of assistance, they charged him with a crime for which he was found guilty, and forced to pay a fine for camping in the wilderness while seeking shelter from the blizzard.
