Is this the same cemetery that was vandalized a few months ago?

People who mess with churches and cemeteries should get prison time. Disgusting.

Only the lowest of the low. May all their dreams be filled with the pictures of the stones they tried to destroy. Hopefully they will be caught and justice will be fast and swift so these poor souls can go on resting in peace.

Vandals spray painted some stones and pushed others over a couple of years ago. They spray painted the Ashley Furniture store too[the one that burned on Patton Ave]. My family is buried there and my stomach turns every time I hear of something like this. Perhaps the people who did this should be introduced to my Marine brother-in-law, who will be buried next to my sister when his time comes. I'm sure he could give them an attitude adjustment.

It's a sad time when people don't even respect the dead. Probably young hoods who need something else to keep them busy; like get a job.

I think these scum should be made to repair the damage they did, and work in the cemetery for a year. This should also include attending every burial conducted in the cemetery for a year.

I own a 7 foot blacksnake whip, an I am very good with it. Just give me 5 minutes with each one, and they will think they are within an inch of their lives. They wont be so eager to damage Cemeteries in the future.
Then give them to BUBBA!

I agree, and they should have to hand dig each and every grave!

Jail time in Raleigh for these Satanic worshippers.
Heavy fines, restitution and real justice, not this slap on the wrist and be good now, ya hear from the judge and DA.

I feel their punishment should be to mow the entire cemetery with a pair of scissors for 10 years. And, if it don't pass an inspection, they go over it again.

This was a very disrespectful and in disregard for life.

I agree with an earlier comment....

Make them go to all of the funerals for the next year. This would change their mind the next time they decide to do something this despicable.
