Graffiti Vandals Target Cemetery

Wednesday October 5 2011




THREE teenagers have admitted being the ones responsible for vandalising some gravestones in Jump Cemetery with rude graffiti.

PC Paul Davies said three youths - all aged under 13 - were interviewed regarding the vandalism and all admitted their part in the offence.

The graves targeted (photographed) have now been cleaned off by Barnsley Council officers.

Absolutely dreadful. Where are the parents when all this is going on? It brings shame not only on the yobs that did this but on their families as well. Cut their benefits, throw them out of their houses and leave them to starve on the street.

the police want to catch these disrespectful tossers, and make them face the families of the loved ones graves. and they should be allowed to deal with them as they feel fit. i.e. punch the crap out of them. for the hurt they have caused. cos i know what i would do if this was my relatives  grave, and believe me, they would be wishing they were 6 feet under, by the time id finished.

find 'em, n then target the parents vehicles, or homes with spray paint n see how the like it, the disrespectful twats. or better still find out if they have loved one's in a cemetary n see how they like it.

Why dont they get someone to go * undercover * !! find the scum who did this, then beat 10 bells of crap out of them !!! ..dont put em in front of the courts, they'll get a slap on the wrist ,rather than the massive continuous kicks in the lower regions !!!

Its disgusting how anyone could do that? How do you sleep at night? I hope whoever did this gets caught and punished. No respect at all

If and when they catch them no doubt children with nothing else better to do they should make them clean it off  and then fine the parents.

there are no depths that these yobs will not stoop to, nothing but low life scum with no consideration for the feelings of others... it's been said before but 'bring back the birch' oh, sorry to the 'political correctness brigade' but you are as much to blame as anyone, perhaps now you'll re-consider allowing a good slap or two... ofcourse until something like this happens to your family (if you have one) it'll be 'tut, tut, now don't do that again, here let us pay for you a holiday'

rise above it - prove that the people of Barnsley expect more and will not endure this abuse. each an every comment makes it very clear that this is unacceptable behaviour. but should we really be wanting to slap em, smack em, string em up, hang the  bastards???? listen to yourselves - rise above!! prove that we are are civilised. the people responsible for the abuse should be named and shamed. if we give em a good hiding, they will become heroes amongst the rest of the abusers and shameless!
