  • I don’t even know what to tell you about the heartbreaking stories that I’ve been hearing from people, crying hysterically that they’re going through the burial for the second time today.
  • Cook County, Ill. Sheriff Tom Dart • On the effect the excavation of 300 grave sites (for the purpose of reselling the plots) is having on families of the deceased. Four people were arrested for the scheme, which happened at a historic black cemetery in Alsip, Illinois, just outside of Chicago. If you think what he’s saying is bad, just consider the harsh words the families of those affected by the dumping. • source
