Chipping caught on film in the Gunks 21-Feb-2013 At 12:43:13 PM singersmith
It would be pretty hard to justify that as "cleaning"; especially when he's wailing on the rock with a hammer and has a whole set of masonry tools.

I don't think whomever filmed this should be chastised for not stopping him. If you're going to step into a situation like that you have to be prepared to physically stop them because emotions are likely to run high and it could easily escalate to that point (didn't the Aussies already demonstrate the effectiveness of assault by rock hammer?). They aren't the sheriff and they also indicated that they have already raised the issue with him directly to no avail. So, since its really a community issue they filmed him and threw it out there to the community. If the community frowns in significant numbers it will lead to a change in behavior one way or another and will serve as an example to others. If the community doesn't frown then we will have new acceptable practices for FAs and he'll been hailed as a visionary; doubtful to play out this way though.
