I am disgusted at Pat Brown and PeterMac. I am sitting here fuming and it is obviously going to be sensed in this post, but I have just read the latest Post from Pat Brown and she explains exactly what her and PeterMac were up to in Portugal (screenshot).
We have all lost someone we know and we have all grieved over the death of a loved one or a friend. The last thing some people have is the grave of that person. A place where you can go, be quiet and think of them. Some people when in times of trouble even go to the grave of their loved one and speak to them, asking what they would do in a given situation.
People regularly attend the graves of their loved one and tender them with loving care. Unfortunately sometimes graves do become unattended because loved ones have died or family have moved. But that still doesn’t give any one the right to go to that grave and disturb one little piece of dirt unless they are tending to the grave to plant flowers or tidy up the grave.
And most definitely nobody has the right to disturb a grave when they are on a ghoul tour.
You see that is what Pat Brown and PeterMac did. Pat Brown says in her latest blog post, the following:
I did find a couple of graveyards on the outskirts of town which had curious possibilities in that inside the walls of these small cemeteries, there were quite a few graves with just a mound of dirt over the body rather than a concrete structure; some folks obviously lacked the money to pay for these nice amenities and had to bury their loved ones in a very simple fashion. When they came into more money, they could then top the grave site with a proper tombstone. In theory, if one could access such a location, one could bury a small body in an already dug grave, put back the displaced dirt and no one would be the wiser that the grave contained an extra corpse. Not a bad concept, but these graveyards appeared to be locked and monitored, so one would have to scale the walls to get in. Possible? Yes, but not probable.
She later then goes onto say this:
There are the remains of a fort and, nearby, odd mounds of soft dirt that actually already look like a set of graves. Retired British police officer, PM, and I brought out the metal detector and spade and investigated a number of them.
The metal detector found nothing. Since it was possible Maddie could have been buried in the oft-discussed missing sports bag, I was wanting to see if the detector would find any metal, metal that might be on that bag. If Maddie’s body were buried shallowly under the ground in a sports bag, metal rings attaching a strap or metal zippers (although zippers these days are almost all vinyl) could set off the metal detector. Unfortunately, it remained silent.
Then PM dug trenches across the mounds; we found nothing. Then we drove up to look at the cross we saw on the hill; it turned out to be a windsock. So much for the religious significance, although, if we thought it was a cross, so could Gerry.
“Look like a set of graves?” So you found mounds of dirt that looked like graves and you disturbed them. Have neither of you any respect for the deceased. It doesn’t matter if these people were buried there last year or the year before or even centuries ago, it is their final resting place and they should be treated with respect.
You disgusting pair of ghouls, because that is all you are. Bloody ghouls. I do hope that someone in Portugal will report this, because, you as far as I am concerned, have between you desecrated graves. There is no excuse for this kind of behaviour, you can’t even say you didn’t realise these mounds could be graves, because you stated above,“There are the remains of a fort and, nearby, odd mounds of soft dirt that actually already look like a set of graves.”
How dare you?
We have been mortified at the behaviour of certain factions in Libya recently when they attacked British and Commonwealth war graves.
Sorry but you are no better than these people… How dare you disturb possible graves? And what do your followers think about the Titles Pat Brown and PeterMac the 21st Century Grave Desecraters. Because that is what you are, it doesn’t matter how small the trench was, it doesn’t matter how shallow you dug, once you failed to walk away from places that looked like graves and left them in peace, you earned yourselves that title in my humble opinion.
You even try to justify your actions by this comment:
Then we drove up to look at the cross we saw on the hill; it turned out to be a windsock. So much for the religious significance, although, if we thought it was a cross, so could Gerry.
It is obvious you didn’t give one iota if that place held any religious significance, you just went ahead anway. You ghouls make me friggin sick.
And for all those that will defend these two despicable people, how would you feel if it was the final resting place of one of your ancestors that Pat Brown and PeterMac decided to dig up?
