  • 24 hours in a closed casket
  • i think they should be sodomized with a red hot poker but that is just my crazy mind
  • Hm. How about forced labor breaking up rocks that are going into the production of headstones (unpaid, of course), coupled with paying a certain (high) percentage of the replacement cost of the headstones themselves.
  • I think they should be roped by the heels and dragged over cactus and rocks behind a good fast quarter horse at a full run. Then, whatever is left of them should be left for the buzzards.
  • Im so sorry that you had to endure this disrespect retroglide - I would be so mortified, and angry as well. . I really think they should be made to pay for all the damage theyve done - I dont think that will be a small sum. I think they should also have their homes and most prized possessions vandalised, whatever those things are, so theyd know what it feels like to have their property infringed on.
  • The vandels children should be cast in Michael Jackson's next video.............the much anticipated sequel to Thriller or Britney Spears will babysit for one night.
  • i'm so sorry... : ( no-one should have that happen to them, nor should people stoop so low to do such a rotten thing... death for sure...
  • They should be forced to do maintenance on all of the cemeteries in the area TFN. Also, I like Riff-Raff's idea involving the red-hot poker. Cemetery vandalism is one of the lowest possible forms of disrespect. I'm so sorry that your parents' burial site was the target.
  • I'm sorry to hear that Retro. I think you should send them my way. I've perfected the fine art of nad kicking.
  • They should be forced to dig up their own ancestor's corpses and spend a few hours in their moldy old coffins. Then people would mock them when they come out. That would about do it.
  • Terribly sorry to hear that. What a violation. I'm sure these are kids who don't understand the consequences of their actions on other people. Maybe the required attendance at a few funerals would help them understand what a difficult thing grief can be for a family. Maybe that way, the headstones would come to represent more to them than mere fun.
  • Oh sweetie, I can't tell you how sorry I am to hear that. The insensitivity, stupidity and downright evil perpetuated by some people never ceases to amaze me. These vandals need to be put in touch with exactly what they've done. In addition to paying for any damage, they need to be sentenced to some very specific community service. First, they should be made to meet with and apologize to any of the affected families. Then, they should spend some time working in a Funeral Home observing the preparation of bodies and meetings with loved ones. Time helping out at the Coroner's office would work well too. Finally, some time at the cemetary digging graves would complete their education on the meaning of death and respect very nicely. All my best Retro:)
  • An intensive meditation course, including reflection and meditation on death practices, with a lot of time spent sitting in the cemetary at night. Also a big dose of voluntary work and community service, helping in situations where there is death, so they can take in the emotions involved at death, for when they see that they will never wreck someones head stone. And saying sorry in public for the action.
  • I'm sorry that happened, it's crap. They would be ground keepers for a very long time and they would have to memorize the words of each and every head stone they broke and recite it upon request.
  • They should be made to pay for new headstones, be fined on top of that, and work in the cemetary for 6 months. Sorry to hear that, Retro.
  • Pay for damage--hopefully at high labor/materials rate. Civil suits, individually for each headstone. Criminal prosecution and maybe jail time. I don't understand vandalism.
  • Retro: terrible news - they should be punished to the full extent of the law. :)
  • they should be punished really bad. i know its upsetting twice when ive been to visit my mums grave the orniments i left have been broken and even been pinched.
  • I am sorry to hear about this, heres a hug (((Hug))),these vandals should pay to have it restored to the original condition and court ordered to do the work themselves and maintain that cemetery for a year so they will have a vested interest in making sure this type of behavior never happens again.
  • That is so horrible, Retro. I would like to dig a great big hole at the end of the cemetery and toss them all into it.
  • Thirty lashes. Grr. Damn them.
  • I think they should be made to pay to have any stones they destroyed replaced, spend some time in jail, do a year of cemetery groundskeeping and make a public apology on tv for what they had done (the more people who know, the better) so that people will point and stare wherever they go. Then they need a really good ass kicking.
  • I am all for the worst kind of punishment for something like this....monetary, some kind of community service, maybe even a week or so in jail would give these losers something to think about. I am so very sorry Retro...I was hoping you were around I really need to talk to you.
  • I agree with what most have said, pay to replace, a fine, community service and some jail time. I'd like to add something. Most vandalism is done by youths. If this is the case I think their parents should be made to participate in the community service. Maybe they will pay more attention to what their kids are up to in the future.
  • At the very least they should pay for the headstones. If they can't afford to, they should make new ones. This is in addition to whatever criminal penalties are possible. That's so heartless. I'm sorry Retro.
  • Did they ever find out who the vandals were? I hope so & I hope they have to pay for the headstones. Personally I think they should have to work at the funeral home & see the grief families go through when they lose a loved one along with have to work as a grounds keeper & dig graves & bury the lost loved ones & realize these are real people they have done such a horrible thing to by destroying a piece of history that portrays this precious lost loved one. Most vandals are stupid & immature & don't realize or at the time care about what pain & sorrow they bring to families by doing something this stupid & offensive. Pee on the parents paying for what stupidity their kids done that would be to easy & teach them nothing. They should have to see & suffer for what cruel acts of stupidity they've done & realize what fools they were for commiting this crime. Also they should have to wear a big bright yellow or orange shirt when they are at the funeral home that says something like I thought it was funny to destroy your families headstones & feel the humilation from their actions.
  • Have them work community service for money, then have them pay for the stones they destroyed, and half to walk around with a sign that says, "I vandalized a cemetary, honk if you hate me."
  • Vandals ran loose and caused between 15-20K of damage in a cemetery in Ossining, NY and now the taxpayers are going to have to pay the bill because the city took over the upkeep of the place.
  • I think they should repair and find each tomb stone. They should pay for the money to patch the headstone. Then they should pick up each tombstone and take it to a place where this type of stone can be recycled. Then they should buy each plot a new stone, exactly as the original and learn how to put it in the ground. They should pay an equal amount to each family for each headstone bought. They should write or video the remorse they did or did not feel and pay to have it in the local newspaper or on the local channel with their names and pictures. Finally, they should be assigned cemetery duty for at least a year. Should even one day it appear unkempt, then another year would be added. They are to be supervised by the sheriff's department with shackles until their service is completed.
  • It seems if they get caught they will get a felony sentence for Cemetery vandalism. Which is duly needed
