Old cemetary vandalized

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Im at a loss,of why would a person be thinking of vandalizing a cemetary!In Waco Texas vandals created $200,000 in damages to headstones.They desecrated baby graves,cut the heads off angels with saws and turned over marble urns.But,not before spray painting F-words and toilet papering trees and bushes.I was especially bothered by this because my parents are gone. I cant imagine how that feels to find your loved ones graves destroyed. emoticon SUSAN

    Teens being jerks. That's what. I'll bet a bunch of them were out drinking and this is what happens. They'll find these kids quickly. It won't take long before someone posts a boast on FB about what they did.

    PS - Something similar happened here in Boston. Saw it on the news. Someone defaced three churches with a spray painted sign that said,"brainwashed".

    😡Of all the senseless things I hear about, vandalizing cemeteries is one I those I understand least! We've had several vandalized in our area over the years and it breaks my heart everytime!

    Most likely was done by younger, city kids who don't have enough to keep them busy. Back when youngsters had to work to help Dad on the farm, and go to school during the day, they were too exhausted to get together and destroy things just of the sake of destroying. The very sad thing is, even if they are caught, they will probably get just a slap on the hand, and be right back out there, roaming the streets.

    Very sad commentary on today's society and parents who give their kids too much freedom and not enough responsibility. Children need to grow up with a sense of respect and reverence. How many young persons these days (or children for that matter) attend church these days? They sure don't learn respect and reverence in school, like we used to when we were kids.

    Very, very, sad indeed......... emoticon

    They are sick individuals. I hope they are punished.

    This type of activity seems to be happening more frequently. I don't understand why - boredom, anger? Definitely senseless.

    I can't understand why someone would do something like this. Hope there's eventual justice (somewhere) for doing this type of act.

    Ugh, I just can't stand this kind of baseless destruction. How upsetting and senseless emoticon
