Cemetery tombs are serving as beds for drunks. Cemeteries should be peaceful and serene places. However, one cemetery in Cambridge, United Kingdom has become home to drunks and drug addicts who sometimes remove tomb lids and sleep inside of them.Police officials are working to ban the sale of alcohol at a shop in the nearby Petersfield neighborhood which they say contributes to street drinking and possibly the drunk cemetery dwellers. The area encounters frequent occurrences of drunkenness, defecating and drug use.According to a police statement, “One resident said she was shocked when she saw a male sitting on a grave with his trousers down injecting himself in his thigh in full view of everyone.” Officers allege the alcohol establishment would commonly sell alcohol to people who were in poor, severely drunken positions. This isn’t the only troubling report involving cemeteries. Last year, nearly 100 graves were desecrated in Benin, West Africa.The culprits had reportedly cut the heads off of the bodies and stole them. Some internal organs were also missing. According to a BBC official, there is reason to believe that the grave robbing incident had something to do with extreme Voodoo traditions, where body parts are placed in charms.
