    Cemetery Attacks Put Focus On Safety

    TAMPA - William Jarvis wanted to visit his wife's grave on her birthday.
    A storm kept him at home on the exact date, but the next day, he drove to Myrtle Hill Memorial Park in east Tampa from Carrollwood in a silver Buick LeSabre.

    Jarvis, 83, was by his wife's plot when a dark pickup truck parked behind the Buick. Two men got out, wearing gloves, he said. He thought they were groundskeepers there to pick up fallen branches.

    They weren't. One man demanded his watch and wallet, according to a Tampa police report. The other threw two small containers into the Buick's trunk and set the car on fire.

    This is way more common than you might think. It is especially commong in urban areas where mostly elderly people maintain the custom of visiting gravesites and visit the cemeteries in what used to be middle-class neighborhoods. They are now war zones.

    We had a police chief form Morris County shot and killed in Newark, NJ when he was escorting elderly people to the grave site of a loved one.
