    I'm certain that any cemetery not owed by the government (such as Arlington) is private property, but at the same time I wasn't aware someone could be arrested after the fact when paying a visit to one -- by their nature, unless they're locked up or notices are clearly posted, aren't they public spaces? Wouldn't they need to be told to leave during normal hours before it becomes a trespassing issue?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I just don't think it's appropriate to use the authorities to make a point when no actual harm has been done.

    I won't dispute that.

    They would have to prove some sort of damage was done to prove malicious mischief charge. Pretty sure there was no destruction of any property done there.

    97-17-67. Malicious mischief.

    The law says that there has to be something destroyed for it to be malicious mischief. Nothing was destroyed or harmed by this group.

    Plus, trespassing into a cemetery would also need to involve some form of destruction of property here (from what I've read).

    Although distasteful, there really isn't much they can do about this, and even if it ever made it to court, it would very likely not amount to anything because restitution and fines are based on how much damage was actually done, which was none.

    I don't think it's worthy of being arrested or fined, but is just really stupid and immature.

    Well that would be considered desecrating the grave. No one peed on the grave in this story. They just had a stupid ritual and made out.
