HARTFORD, Vt. -
"She was a Sunday school teacher. She taught me 'love thine enemy.' You can't always live up to that, but she would be standing right here beside me supporting what I am doing today if she were still alive," Paul Keane said, holding a picture of his mother.
The longtime former Hartford High school teacher, Paul Keane, says his mother is buried at the Mount Carmel Cemetery in Hamden, Conn. The Hartford, Vt., resident is offering to donate the empty plot next to his mother to bury the Boston Marathon Bomber.
He blogged, "I am willing to donate a burial plot next to my mother in Mt. Carmel Burying Ground to the Tsarnaev family if they cannot obtain a plot."
But for some Connecticut residents with loved ones buried in the cemetery, Keane's offer is offensive.
"It's a disgrace," one said. "A lot of these people who are here, including my father, fought for freedom for their country. My father was a war hero and people who are terrorists in this country should not be in this cemetery."
Keane says the offer was a matter of living up to his religious values.
"This person, no matter how much of a pariah, no matter how despicable, no matter what a leper he is-- is a human being and deserves the right to be buried like anyone else." Keane said.
Some of Keane's Vermont neighbors are also against his offer, and say the memories of the marathon are still too fresh and painful.
"A little kid was killed. That is pretty hard to swallow," neighbor Neil Potter said. "So, I have some pretty strong feelings about all that stuff, and I love this country and if anything happens to it, it offends me."
WCAX News also spoke with several other neighbors who are not opposed to Keane's offer and say it is simply a kind gesture and nothing more. The Tsarnaev family has received other offers for a burial space, so at this point it is not clear what locations are being considered.
"Moronic jackasses all over New England are offering burial plots for this Muzzie POS. I guess all that Boston Strong stuff was nothing but bull****."-FlingWingFlyer
Not just New England. . .
Actually, there's an as-yet-not-well-known imam in Colorado who is offering a plot for Tamerlan's burial. Here's the rub . . .
"Offers to accommodate Tsarnaevs body have been made by individuals, churches and mosques from almost the entire eastern seacoast, and as far away as Wyoming, the funeral director said. link
Honestly, the part that struck me as true Vermont Liberal was that he lives in VT and is offering a place in Connecticut. That sums up VT libs to a T.
I do think the guy is genuine though. He’s trying to be a good Christian with this act. Whatever his definition may be.
mercy for the evil, is torture for the innocent!
make his family pay for/take his wretched azz back where he came from... /2¢
He should be dumped at sea. Like Adolph Eichman, like Osama Bin Laden. Any eartly grave will become a shrine, for pilgramages.
Witness Pere LaChaisse cemetery in Paris which is overrun by hippies coming to see Jim Morrison (of the Doors) because some idiot said, “OK, go ahead and plant him here.”
This is why I posted here. No dodging the honesty and reality of it.
It would make it easier to spot them - you have to admit.
Treat it as such.
.. this guy in VT is a mewling dhimmi
Just cremate the guy and throw his ashes in the ocean.
This isn’t the first time a high profile murderer has been buried.
So why has finding a cemetary been such a problem this time?
I don’t know for sure, but I suspect the fallback burial plot for high profile murderers is a prison cemetary. So, I’ve questioned why this episode has reached ‘crisis’ levels....burying the remains of the unwanted has been done before.
Has Ben & Jerry's named a flavor after him yet?
Don’t hold back. Tell me how you really feel.
Would God want us to bury him and be done with it or spit on him and let him rot? Honest question. Not that we can’t do both, I guess.
A 10 year old girl was raped and murdered. The entire town lead by the reverend, searched every home and found the rapist and murdered.
The reverend asked the men assemble what to do with the beast.
He was handed over to the father and brothers of the girl murdered.
The reverends final words to them, was, "when you are through, do not pollute the ground with his body."
“I swear, as soon as I read that they were looking for a burial site, I thought “he’ll wind up in Vermont for sure!” “
The burial site being offered is in Connecticut. Don’t let that stop you though.
“The reverends final words to them, was, “when you are through, do not pollute the ground with his body.”
Just asking - is that really what God would say? Not agreeing or disagreeing - it makes me think: Who gave up on who first? That’s all.
That Terrorist wanted to go to NYC to blow-up more people. He could offer his plot to the next New Yorker who doesn’t have one.
The family should cremate him and be done with it.
Let’s give it to this POS. It’s a good place to pee.
“He could offer his plot to the next New Yorker who doesnt have one.”
If by “he” you mean the Vermonter - that would truly be a Christian thing to do. About perfect, and moving too.
