The reason the funeral business has a shady reputation.

These pop up from time to time. Reselling plots. A time honored tradition in the cemetery business. Read it here:

I feel awful for the African-American victims of this despicable act. Grave desecration for cash is about as low as you can get. However, I must admit that I'm relieved to see that the perpetrators were apparently also black. (You know how I know? The race of the accused isn't specifically mentioned, although the cemetery director is African-American. It's like when Democrat politicians get in trouble and you have to search the story in vain for their party affiliation. If it turns out I'm wrong on this I will, of course, correct this post.)

Anyway, it looks like for now the "Reverend" Al Sharpton can continue his ministering to the Jackson family uninterrupted.

Update: All arrested are African-American. Scumbags come in all colors, folks. The point of this post is that unfortunately in this day and age if the perpetrators had been white, the "Hate Crime" lobby would have been out in force. Just sayin'.

  1. Over here in Florida, they also have scumbags. This guy buried somebody's body parts in between two other plots in a shallow hole. See the story at:

    An update to the story was yesterday... Poor guy, he has to stay in jail.
