Cemeteries are supposed to be hallowed places of respect and contemplation. The dead are supposed to be left to rest in peace. It is both a written and unwritten law, don’t disturb the dead for any reason.
Unfortunately for those laid to rest in Merrick Cemetery in Violet, Louisiana, someone decided to desecrate a large number of graves.
Pictures and videos have recently come out showing the burial ground in complete disarray, with coffins, headstones, and human remains strewn about like last week’s trash. Families are at a loss, outraged by the callous nature of this crime, as well they should.
This is a level of disrespect that I have a hard time attempting to describe, but the complications from this situation get even more confusing.
