Georgia Cemetery Defaced with Swastika

Both neighbors and groundskeepers are frustrated with hateful vandalism at a DeKalb County cemetery.

Groundskeepers at Resthaven Cemetery say the vandalism has been going on for a couple of years. The latest incident is a swastika painted on a statue.

Grounds supervisor Frank Griggs said his crew is tired of this happening and is doing all they can to get it cleaned.

He calls it ignorant and disrespectful to those who come to see their loved ones at the cemetery. He also said it is unfortunately costly for them to clean up and hard to explain why it keeps happening.

He says they’ve reported the vandalism each time, but DeKalb County police say they have no reports this year.
