Copy-cat crime, now that they

Copy-cat crime, now that they found out the signs are valuable. The same thing happened to the plant/trail markers at Phinizy Swamp. Looters. Ayn Rand saw this type of thing coming back in 1930's when she wrote Atlas Shrugged>

I think it's time the buyers

I think it's time the buyers be held responsible as well. They have to know this stuff is unusual and therefore probably stolen. You can't tell me that they don't know. I mean it's a historic marker for Pete's sake so you know it came from something important or was pilfered from a cemetary or something. These thieves are the lowlifes of the world.

You are right sassy. Scrap

You are right sassy. Scrap metal buyers have to recognize what this material is even if the seller has sawed it into smaller pieces. Westover and Hillcrest have a bunch of this stuff. I would be furious if someone stole my wife's marker!!!!

Sweet son, you are right.

Sweet son, you are right. Some of the older cemetaries in town have already been stripped of items, such as urns, right off the tops of the cemetary markers. You will see this in some of the cemetaries that are not as well cared for, such as the one near Lake Olmstead, where there are many older graves and markers. Makes you sick, doesn't it?
