This story has been going on for about a week but will continue to go on for a long time so this column isn’t late — it’s as on time as a timeless piece can be.

This column is about Burr Oak Cemetery near Chicago — rather it’s about the story about Burr Oak and how four of it’s cemetery workers dug up graves, caskets and headstones, tossed bodies and bones in a mass pile and resold the desecrated plots for cash money.

Fortunately during the grave shuffle, Emmett Till’s burial sit was not tampered with although the original casket he was buried in was a hot mess.  I don’t blame the cemetery for that though, I blame the Civil Rights groups who wanted his body exhumed in 2005 but failed to place the casket in a museum. (Till’s body was placed in a different casket after being exhumed.)

I rarely say when someone should go to Hell, but when Reverend Jesse Jackson said that there should be a special place in Hell for these people — I agree.

There is no excuse for what they did.  I understand that the economy is terrible, I understand that everyone is feeling the crunch, but not like this.  Robbing someone is one thing, but desecrating is something totally different and is inexcusable.

As sad, as wrong and as dishearten as this act was, the very worse thing about the story is that blacks did this.  As a race of people who grew up on the principles of faith and family, that is the most hurtful aspect of the whole case.

How greed tore that asunder.

Let’s all wish the families affected by the Burr Oak Cemetery desecration well and peace.
