It's because we don't have a skate park!

I heard they were just clearing out space to rebuild Wooly Bullys. This new graveyard location will be more convenient as patrons who die of alcohol poisoning can be promptly buried without requiring the assistance of pesky middlemen.

It's not an excuse for vandalism if there is not a skate park. Ask your mommie or daddy if you can build one in your backyard or better yet just get on the rooftop and slide down the side. Good times!

Excellent idea or better still, just createt them. It's cleaner, cheaper and saves valuable land for the living.

I think it's fantastic that people damage graves. The people that make them as well as those in funeral homes charge entirely too much for their services, just like the medical comunity.

By damaging the tombstones, they hurt the innocent people who have paid to have a place and show respect for their loved ones. They do not hurt the funeral home people or the cemetery owners or grove diggers.

I was smart enough not to bring life into the dangerous situation that was forced on me since the age of seven unlike some others.

Wow, i guess you're right. At any rate,that particular form of vandalism should be more abundant, that way people will think twice before thay pay out for a nice stone and do everyone else a tremendous diservice for doing it.

I disagree. I believe it is ok to purchase tombstones that costs millions of dollars if one can afford it.

Im fine with your choice so long as people can come up with a line of sharp looking economy stones, such stones should exist and would help stimulate the businesses that make them and help many families find closure. yeah, some of the big ones look cool. At some point, someone set a standar as to how much should be charged for a head stone, and that choice was oh so wrong. THEY DID A BANG UP JOB WITH THAT VADALISM!!!!!!(if it even happened)
