Kill the bastards!

Vandals in Marville, France broke into the local charnel house and broke the skull boxes on the altar and smashed the skulls. KILL THE BASTARDS! Above is a before and after photo so you can see the damage that was done. To me, this is inexcusable. I can't even imagine what would go through someone's mind that would cause them to destroy something so beautiful and so sacred. This is a centuries old tradition for the French and a way for them to honor the dead. The locals are very upset to say the least. Sorry, I have to say it one more time: KILL THE BASTARDS!
