To bury or not to bury

They’ve finally buried the marathon bomber.

OK, he was an odious, murderous individual. One can’t blame people too much for not wanting his body buried in their town, where it might turn into some weird shrine for deranged terrorist souls.

But still … We’re a civilized society. This really shouldn’t been so drawn out. Thank goodnewss for the gentleman who helped solve this.

File under: Issue, buried

    My opinion is that as soon as the family back in Russia indicated they didn’t want him back, Gov. Patrick should have contacted the Coast Guard and arranged a burial at sea beyond the territorial limit. It would have satisfied both sides as much as possible: those wanted him buried and those who didn’t want him buried on US soil.

    I mostly agree with you. I dont really understand the whole burial at sea idea. For bin laden it made more sense as he was known worldwide and orchestrated something terrible at a massive scale. This guy is not going to be remembered by name by most people. Why make a huge deal over it so long as he can be put to rest in a place far from boston.

    2ndly I would feel equally distressed to have the new town shooter in a cemetery near new jersey too then…should all horrific criminals go out to sea then?

    I blame the media for the circus – did we really need to know where the body was at all times? Condo Seeker mentions Adam Lanza… I don’t remember any coverage of which funeral home was handling his remains, or where the body is now. If the family had been able to deal with this quietly, I don’t think the Worcester PD would have needed to supply all that overtime security to the funeral home.

    And I think it’s pretty ridiculous to protest and boycott the funeral home. Someone has to handle the remains. I mean, a dead body isn’t going to bury itself.
