Harsh fate for cemetery vandals

Tuesday, April 12, 2005

To the editor:

I am outraged at the continued vandalism going on in Fairmont Cemetery. The vandals are the lowest of lowlifes. We who have loved ones buried there are in enough pain without this senseless destruction adding to it. What kind of sick pleasure do vandals get from this? They should be publicly whipped like some countries overseas do, and their names and those of their parents should be published in the newspaper. Where are the police when this is going on? Why don't they pay a little more attention to patrolling this area?
