That cemetery has been vandalized for years. What kind of sickos enjoy vandalizing graves? Hope the sickos enjoy their time in Hell for disrupting these folks' resting places. What is the law for desecrating graves? Isn't it jail time????

Can't cameras be put out there (secretly)? I don't see why that can't be done.
