Cemetery Desecration and Vandalism

Posted on September 24, 2007

Submitted to us by Robert Thomson

I just happened to be walking through a cemetery one day when I noticed that some of the headstones and ornaments had been defaced and damaged. I also noticed that some of them had not. I wondered to myself why do things like this go on in such places.

Being a complete disbeliever in life after death myself really had nothing to do with the sights that I was witnessing, but in my mind I felt as if perhaps there was something uncanny happening.

I could clearly see with my own eyes that some of the graves had been desecrated. I could see that by the fact that some of the graves and markers had been vandalized by hooligans and people with no respect for the dead.

It does not take one to be a genius to work out what is going on in certain cemeteries around the globe, all it takes is a good eye to spot the ones that have been vandalized and it should cause most ordinary, or extraordinary, individuals like myself to see what is happening all over the world nowadays.

    Yes, rather you believe in an afterlife or not… the dead should be respected and left at peace.. if you can believe it I can tell you something even worse than vandalism of graves (if you can imagine such a thing)… when my dad was a little boy he went by a cemetary on his way to school every day. One day he noticed that all the head stones had been piled up in one corner of the cemetary… he asked his dad about it and he said he wasn’t sure what to think either but he would check it out. Well, the next day after that there were farmers PLOWING the graveyard as if it were a farm acre! My dad rushed home to let his dad know what he saw… his dad said “you are not going to believe this, but after 100 years if no one else has been buried in a cemetary and there is no known next of kin to move a grave in a 100 year old cemetary it is officially seen as an abandoned graveyard and therefor can be reused!” I am sure this is a true story as my dad was never an embellisher… this would have been in eastern iowa in the late 1930′s. talk about disrepect in it’s highest form!!!!!!

    I don’t know anything about laws governing the use or reuse of property that is originally a cemetary, but this does not sound right. I’d like to hear a response from someone who is familiar with this kind of law.
