Vandalism at Oakwood Cemetery, Troy, NY

This is not a story that I like to report but it is one that needs attention.  Recently cemetery workers at the historic Oakwood Cemetery in Troy noticed that numerous headstones were knocked over.  108 stones in fact were vandalized.  The Times Union reports that this act may be some sort of revenge act because this section of the cemetery had approximately 1000 stones uprighted and reset last year.  I am attaching links to various news sites for the report.
