Pun­ish­ment should send mes­sage to grave thieves

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

Those who steal from graves and des­e­crate them have no fear and I would sus­pect don’t even care.

how­ever, the warn­ings are there and peo­ple should re­ally think long and hard about what type of me­mo­rial they want to leave to their loved ones.

We know that any­one should have the right to leave any­thing they like with­out fear of dam­age or theft, but re­gret­table though it is, we live in an age of self­ish­ness, greed and no con­sid­er­a­tion for any­one or any­thing.

If and when these peo­ple get caught, the pun­ish­ment needs to send out a clear warn­ing that will be a sig­nal to oth­ers who might be tempted.

That of course will be a wish and un­likely to be­come a re­al­ity and thereby hangs an­other un­pleas­ant fact!
