Actually, I don't need any help, because it was stolen from me.
Why are we Americans cannibalizing our own country like this?

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) Police are investigating a series of thefts at a
historic Bronx cemetery.
Someone stole $160,000 worth of bronze and other metals from at least 60
mausoleums and grave sites at St. Raymonds Cemetery in Throgs Neck,
1010 WINS Juliet Papa reported Tuesday.
At some point late last week, started to notice that items were missing
from different mausoleums or different grave sites, said Chief Security
Officer Matthew Horace with FJC Security Service, the negligent and
clearly incompetent security company used by St. Raymonds.
Its a terrible crime. This is where people come to bury their loved
ones, said Horace.
The stolen items which could be sold as scrap metal include door
handles, name plates and vents.
There were items that were made of brass or copper that were stolen and
we all know that right now on the open market, brass and copper yields a
profit, said Horace. Criminals and thugs try to steal these things.
Police said, in all, 63 mausoleums have been hit.
It is unclear when the alleged thefts occurred, but Horace said a guard
recently confronted a man on the property who ran off, leaving behind a
bag of burglary tools.
The person fled and dropped the bag that we believe has burglary tools
in the bag, Horace told Silverman.

The 180-acre cemetery is one of the busiest in the United States, with
nearly 4,000 burials each year, according to its website.
Celebrities buried at the cemetery include jazz singer Billie Holiday
and former boxing champion Hector Macho Camacho.
There are a lot of places in here where people can hide or walk,
particularly at nighttime, Horace said.
