Wow, although I don't really understand what is stopping another news agency from going in and digging down to depth before an officer gets there. Do it at night and get out of there before anyone shows up, it's not like the beach is a small place. I'd love to see them go to court on that one.

the law even applied to building sand castles.
I feel bad for all the 6 year olds going to juvie for this, in fact, when I lived on the gulf coast we buried many friends up to their necks in the sand for photos...I'm going to jail for life

I'd love to go down there and just (dig and) build a sandcastle of a dolphin laying on it's side near the shore and fought it in court tooth and nail. I hope someone that lives down there does and ties up the court system for this stupid cover-up that our government and BP are doing.

Where are ther real reporters? Journalists with the balls if getting
arrested for a Pullitzer?
They must control way more than one can imagine, and on the other side the story dominated the headlines for months.
Im still waiting to see a single individual charged with something.

So, we all know that there is oil under the sand, but this reporter did not do all of his research. He does in fact need a permit both for the digging, and for the filming. I know it's crazy, but it is true.

NPS Scientific Research and Collecting Permit

The National Park Service has a long history of encouraging educational discovery and scientific research in parks. Research and collection activities within Gulf Islands National Seashore are managed to prevent damage to the resources, to coordinate research activities, and to assist in the application of science to the management of the Seashore. For these reasons, a National Park Service permit is required for any collecting or research activity conducted within the Seashore. Permits may only be issued to official representatives of a reputable scientific or educational institution or a federal, tribal, or state agency to conduct scientific research activities. Persons interested in collecting or conducting research must make application to the National Park Service. Applications may be obtained from and submitted to the specific park of interest or online at: https://science.nature.nps.gov/resea.../ResearchIndex.
And then this as well --

When is a permit needed?

All commercial filming activities taking place within a unit of the National Park system require a permit. Commercial filming includes capturing a moving image on film and video as well as sound recordings

NPS Digest- Commercial Filming and Still Photography Permits
I don't agree with the tactics that were being employed necessarily, but there is a procedure to follow that the reporter did not.

Yes. But we both know that wiothout the oil under the sand no one would stop you from digging a hole. SO they're stopping them from finding the oil...besides regulations.
