Well, just recently my local cemetery was destroyed by a bunch of people. It is sad..

Video

In the early hours of Saturday morning 3 October 2009, vandals attacked the old and historic Armidale cemetery. In a spree that must have lasted for some time, they inflicted damage estimated at $A400,000. This is just the monetary cost.

But alas, the hearts of the vandals were colder than the cemetary residents. *single glistening tear in eye*

I can hardly fathom the idiocy that would motivate someone to do something so disrespectful and insensitive. Remember that it's not personal, and your dad's memory is your own and nothing can change that.

Kicks. Same reason anyone vandalises anything.

Desecrating graves is about as ****ed up as it gets. This pisses me off so much.

How would you feel if your family was buried in a cemetery and some guys go and destroy their headstones and what not?

I honestly can't say I'd care unless I had to pay to have the headstone(s) fixed.


They're dead, dude. They don't mind either.

Probably slightly pissed. Certainly not pissed enough for it to rank among the most ****ed up things that could happen to me (probably underneath being beaten up) and certianly not enough for me to want people dead.

But still, that's pretty ****ed up; I can't see anyone actually enjoying vandalizing a cemetery. You'd have to be a complete bastard....

I believe its more the principle of the matter that he's speaking of. Its more the fact that they just desecrated the memories of those people. Thats how I see it

Either way its ****ed up and the buggers should get a huge ass fine or some jail time.

There was that kid in the news a while back who dug up the human skull and used it as a bong.


People have done worse things.


Vandalism pisses me off most of all when it has no point behind it.

I can see spray painting a political message on wall or tearing down something you don't agree with in political protest (even though people aren't justified in those situations) or something but mindless shit like this has no place in society.

A couple of years ago some group of assmongers destroyed a bunch of cars at a local used car dealership near my home and it really pissed me off.

I know the people who own that place and they're good people. It's unfair to mess up their property for no reason. I'm surprised the place didn't go out of business over it.

Was there a reason, or were they just being douchebags?

There could have been some reason but nothing was reported.

There were also "King Cobra" bottles found at the scene, so I'm guessing it was just a bunch of drunken shitheads with nothing to do.

Those things only bother you if you allow them to.
I'm not saying it's not a bad thing, just not one of the most ****ed up things ever and deserving of death as the poster I was responding to said.

Of course I didn't actually mean I wanted them to die. I was just exaggerating.

Well its not deserving of death no, I'm fairly sure he was exaggerating anyway. A more suitable punishment would be along the lines of a fine or a jail term, as I stated in my previous post. But yeah, definitely not the most ****ed up thing that can happen

Guy's I didn't mean to start an argument whether they deserve to die or not. I wouldn't wish that on anyone. SkaterStagg was just exaggerating his point. Whoever said that they wouldn't really care have obviously not experienced any personal loss of someone dear to them.

I am pretty sure that you would care if someone destroyed the place your father is buried. And not just his, there were heaps of things destroyed there.

Honestly dude, should it matter if its your fathers or someone else's? It selfish to say oh doesn't matter their dead now who cares. Families visit and place flowers there to remember them, they don't want a trash pile near their sites. Some of those statues are over 100 years old, and takes 4 people to lift. Wasn't just a hey push this over thing.

They are causing public destruction, plus all the other laws. Most of those figures can't be replaced now.

Thats exactly why I said " and there are heaps of other things destroyed " IE: Other families grave sites and head tombs. I understand fully that it is not just MY problem.

Don't feel bad TS, most of UG thinks they're soooo badass that they like to think they wouldn't care. Trust me, they would.
