Relic hunters or Deity-cursed socialists?

I'm betting on the socialists.
Caretakers of one of Georgia’s oldest cemeteries say the scene was heart-breaking: A toddler’s bones were spilled on the ground. The uniform buried with a soldier in another plot was strewn on the ground.
And a lot of other damage.

For some things, I really have come to think we need to bring the whipping post back.

If a punishment is both common and appropriate then the "cruel and unusual" doesn't apply. It is sure and certain that incarceration is an abject failure as punishment and rehabilitation both. The whip has much to recommend it, quick painful may or may not leave permanent marks as appropriate and can vary in intensity as needed. An appropriate application of pain plus the requirement to repair the damage done as much as possible sounds to me like justice at it's best.

Many years ago I was a Civil War reenactor. One time some other reenactors caught some relic hunters in Gettysburg Cemetery, they'd measure about 3 feet from a headstone and dig down looking for a belt-buckle. The reenactors grabbed them, stripped them naked, bucked-and-gagged them (I'll let you look it up) and dropped them on the steps of the police station with a sign around their neck reading "relic hunter".
