Massive cemetery desecration in NJ

four teenagers over two nights, toppled 500 tombstones in a New Brunswick, NJ Jewish cemetery.

I don't know of any relatives buried in the cemetery, but the photographs, and video are heartrending. The police haven't yet found evidence of it being a hate-based crime, but I just can't comprehend why the teens would have done this. There was a lot of hatred against society in general at least to compel them to go through the physical labor of that level of destruction.

A cemetery restoration fund has been established by the local community.
