While taking photos of tombstones to post on Find-a-grave, I'm finding a LOT of old tombstones that have been damaged or broken off by teenagers driving city-owned lawnmowers. The damage is appalling.
The stone I’d seen in the fall now looked like this:
By mid-December the surviving top half of the 120-old-stone had been “replanted” by city employees.
Quickly scanning my photos, I found many more examples of wanton destruction by the “summer teens” that had been hired to mow the lawns in the city cemetery.
Not just shaved but gouged
Even the top corner was broken
