kentucky man digs up dads grave
“All my friends got cars for their 16th birthday and I had to take the fucking bus.” “Why do you like Richard better?” “A C+ is above average!”
These are all things I’d love to say to my dad—and if he could figure out how to work a goddamn cell phone, I would.
But Michael May was far more committed to the cause than I, and when those old wounds just refused to go gently into the night, May decided he had to face the situation head on.
But May’s father died almost 40 years ago! So how did he intend to undertake this long overdue confrontation?
With a shovel.
The 44-year-old Kentucky dude dug up his dad's grave at a cemetery in Sanford, according to authorities.
Lincoln County Constable Delbert Mitchell said he saw a truck parked outside of Pilot Baptist Church Monday night and went into the cemetery to investigate.
“I went back and hollered for him to step back in the light and he told me to step back to the dark,” He told LEX 18 News. “That's when I went and got my flashlight. He started hollering out [Bible] verses at me."
Police said May appeared to be intoxicated.
But May and his supporters (that would be me), fail to see that his actions were in any way inappropriate or reprehensible.
“I didn’t do nothing wrong,” May told a reporter.
"I see the truth. He needs to be on the ground. Not under it. If the truth doesn't come out and nobody sees the truth, yeah, I'll do it again."
May is charged with violating a grave, possession of marijuana and public intoxication.
