Kalispell Man Who Dragged ’10 Commandments’ Monument Down the Street Given Slap on the Wrist

Apparently ‘thou shalt not steal’ is a pretty small commandment in the Montana hamlet

On June 28th, 2020, 30-year-old Anthony Craig Weimer belted a chain around a granite monument of the Ten Commandments, fastened it to his truck, and hauled it over the courthouse lawn and onto Main Street in Kalispell where he abandoned it to be left up to workers to remove.

Weimer said his reasoning for pulling the monument from its location was that he wanted it in front of the courthouse and not behind it.

He told the judge, “It represents law and to me it’s hidden. I also believe the government placing the Ten Commandments on its property is offensive to God.”

Weimer said he believed the monument to be public property and he believes each citizen has the potential to own the monument.

Of course, ith that type of faulty reasoning, if we were able to confiscate public items for our pleasure and usage, then we’d all be tearing down swing sets from public parks and setting them up in our own back yards. 

Weimer seems to be a very troubled man.  

In 2018, Weimer sued Google, Microsoft, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Communication Commission because he said they allowed him access to internet pornography websites before he was 18 years of age. He said he was nearly entrapped by federal officers because of his access to the material on a wireless device. Weimer also claimed he sustained physical injury, including genital mutilation and maiming, as well as “spiritual lostness, morals, and the near loss of life.” The suit was dismissed, but Weimer appealed.

Six other monuments that surrounded the Ten Commandments were unharmed by Weimer. The Montana Constitution, U.S. Constitution, U.S. Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, Magna Carta, and Mayflower Compact remain intact and behind the old courthouse in Kalispell. Dismally, the sacred Ten Commandments are still omitted from the others.

Lawlessness is not new to Weimer. 

According to a 2003 report by the Associated Press, Weimer was one of three Kalispell boys charged in youth court on allegations of arson, vandalism, setting fires and a string of thefts. Police said the boys started one fire that caused $50,000 damage to a home under construction. Others burned open land, while one was set at a home in which the occupant was sleeping.

In this most recent (Ten Commandment episode) Weimer was charged with felony criminal mischief. His maximum sentence (could have been) 10 years in prison with a $50,000 fine.

Nevertheless, that is far from what the vandal received. Judge Amy Eddy went soft on him and gave him three years probation and repayment of the seven thousand dollars for damage done to the monument. It was, by all measures, a metaphoric slap on the wrist.
