So? Obama doesn’t give a rip about his relatives, inlaws or blood.

If her father is still buried, I suppose there is no problem.

If he’s stacked out in the back though...

Chiago’s Mayor Daley did the same thing to 2 cemeteries on the NW side to the horror of the families. And those cemetaries weren’t even in Chicago. Barely a menton in the news.

But on this a feeding frenzy. Why?

Why? This is a legitimate story. Screw the scumbags that try to call us "racist" for having the utter gall to talk about a story involving Michelle Obama's father.

Because it's a historic cemetery, at one time the only place in Cook County where blacks were allowed to be buried. Emmet Till and Dinah Washington are among those interred there.

This is awful. Hopefully her father is still buried where he should be. I can’t believe how cruel people are here sometimes. If this was Palin’s father’s gravesite would we say the exact same thing....Oh better yet what if it was Ronald Reagan’s grave?????

Prosecutors said 200 to 300 bodies were dug up and dumped in an isolated, weedy area of a cemetery at which many prominent African-Americans are buried, including civil rights icon Emmett Till. Exposed bones, chunks of concrete and broken coffins litter the hilly, overgrown area about four blocks long, authorities said.
snip
"This crime, it's a whole new dimension that shows us what lengths people will go to for financial gain," said State's Atty. Anita Alvarez.

Sheriff Tom Dart said investigators, including dozens of FBI agents, would be at Burr Oak for months sorting through the discarded piles of bones. Not only were remains heaved into a "dump area" at the cemetery, bodies were allegedly double-buried in existing plots, Dart said.

"Literally, they were pounded [down]," he said. "They pounded the other [body] down and put someone on top."


Oh my Lord this is terrible. I feel so bad for those families. What a horrible thing to have happen. This is like that case someplace down South (I think?) where they were taking the money and basically dumping the bodies in the woods. That was a funeral home though I think.

This is a serious story and how anyone can feel anything but sympathy for the people involved, including the Obama family, is beyond me.

I saw a couple of these familes on Fox and Friends yesterday. Pretty sad story.

I don’t blame the familes for being upset. They paid for the plots and gravestones for their family members to RIP.

This is a black on black crime. The perps.



They took used plots and with different nefarious methods reused them again. Sounds like the "Obamas" are between a headstone and a hard place on this one. The occupation media spin should be entertaining.

3 people have been arrested for digging up bodies and piling them in a field then reselling the empty plots.

I don’t see as it’s racist to post the story. It is unimaginable to have a loved one dug up and piled somewhere. I don’t care whose family it is. It’s horrible.

Okay, that sign on the right is scary. Mr. Western’s body went missing SIX DAYS after being buried at Burr Oak? The news reports I’ve seen all said that the perps were “recycling” graves that were old and/or had not been visited recently. If that woman’s sign is for real, this problem is a lot bigger than we’ve been led to believe.

The perps are sick puppies. While this will take a long time for investigators to complete their jobs, I ponder why it took so long for the crime to be discovered?!? Wouldn’t the more recent burials, or current family members have noticed the desecration? Like michele obama’s family on memorial day? I don’t understand that part. Maybe I missed that part of the story.

I thought it was the older graves too. If the newer graves were violated, I’m shocked they weren’t discovered sooner.

Zenith Press Association

August 15, 2017
Chicago, Illinois

Marian Shields Robinson, mother of former First Lady, Michelle Robinson Obama, died yesterday. In otherwise excellent health, an autopsy determined that the cause of death was a relatively simple to repair coronary artery blockage. She was 80 years old.

Unfortunately, under the 2011 Universal Health Care Act, passed in the last year of the truncated Obama Administration, the surgery necessary to clear the fatal blockage is prohibited on patients over 60 years of age.

The impeached Barack Obama could not be reached for comment. On death row at the Colorado Super-Max prison, he is awaiting execution for treason against the Constitution and the people of the United States and humanity.

The Republican breakaway New Freedom Party, which began winning congressional seats in the 2010 election and completed its sweep of conventional Republicans and Democrats from office in the 2016 election, has pledged to eliminate what President Palin called “…these unfortunate and unnecessary deaths of our older citizens who have, after all, done much to build this nation.” She went on to say “Of course, we all die. But this foolishly enacted legislation is consigning countless millions of otherwise healthy, capable, often wisdom-laden loved parents and grandparents to early graves for simply corrected problems. It’s just morally wrong.”

Senate Majority Leader Rand Paul (NFP, Tx) has pledged to revisit the Universal Health Care Act as soon as he and his colleagues on Capitol Hill complete the pending treason trials of 58 Obama officials now taking up the bulk of their time.

When reached by phone for comment, former First Lady Michelle Obama, muttered a few unprintable scatological and profane terms and something about no longer being “…proud of this crappy country – not that I ever was” before hanging up.

Arrangements are pending but those close to the family have hinted that Mrs. Robinson will be taken to Kenya for burial. Mrs. Obama has declared that she and her daughters will remain in Kenya — eventually found to be the actual birthplace of the disgraced former usurper president — and never return to the United States.

What are you talking about? The entire tip toeing around "racism" has enabled this crime. Ignoring the digging up of the remains of families and reburying them again in mass graves is an honorable act and worthy of respect?

This was a "black on black" crime. A crime that is both heinous and evil. Ignoring it is an act of disrespect and racism.

Research European burial customs-it will be an eye-opener.

Over there burial plots in some areas are officially reused if the rent isn't paid etc.

Americans of the past several hundred years are probably the most careful and respectful of the dead of any society.Which is why we are appalled by these grave-robbers.
