Thou shalt not dishonor those in eternal rest. This is the most disgusting type of crime ever imagined up by pea brain children. Angers me every time I see a story like it. Who speaks for the dead? I for one. We all should, very LOUDLY. Unforgivable activity.

This is so disrespectful, on so many levels.

You are right, Grim. Those kids should be made to bear the cost of repairing/replacing those stones.

Bet they would think twice if someone did that to their grandparents or other loved ones. How sick really hope they have to replace them. What a shame for those family members who go to visit and have to deal with this. They already had to deal with the death of a loved one to now deal with someone doing this.

Here is a suggested punishment, your Honor:

Lock them in the cemetery gates - overnight. See how those kids feel about what they did after that kind of experience.

there parents will end up paying, the kids still wont learn about consequences.
the liberals have made sure of that by banning religion and punishment in our schools and courts

My daughter died as an infant, and I hope I am no longer around when someone punks try to deface her headstone.
A person can only take so much horror in their lives.

Wouldn't it make more sense to just give the kids the job of caring for the cemetary as a part of their punishment along with restitution? Locking them in at night might scare them, but it won't teach them to respect the property and sensitivities of others. What they did was a shame and they need to understand why and take responsibility for their actions.

CaliforniaCathy, I like your idea of them caring for the cemetery, but I think that respect is something their parents should have taught them. I don't think they will comprehend what they did as wrong or else it wouldn't have gotten this far.
I'm with W2GR, I hope I'm long gone before anyone lays a hand on Kerri's stone, or I will hunt them down myself, they will wish they were before a judge and not an irate mother that has buried her child.
