There are numerous case files on Rose Hill, but every time the city is asked about more patrols, the old spector of "budgetary constraints" comes up.


Of course . I would use the fact that there are other cases to my advantage. File a public information request with the Macon police department to get all police reports involving the cemetery and/or the gravesites. This will give you a number to work with. From this, you can use those figures to work with the city council (or whatever the equivalent in Macon might be) to show them that their "tourist attraction" has issues that are not being addressed, only documented. For instance, you will know that in 2005, the gravesites were defaced, say, 100 times and in 2006, that number went up to 132 times. This shows them that you, the taxpayer, are well aware of the lack of concern by the city on something they promote. Another suggestion would be to again try and work with your local governing authority to assess a portion of citation revenue towards security, maintenance and upkeep of the sites. You would likely need either a local vote or agreement by your governing board to assign, say 2% of all citiation revenue towards the graves. Either way, you will get them on record either supporting or failing to support your endeavor. Additionally, there may be Federal money available if Rose Hill is a federal historical landmark.

quote:
With the campaing of Macon being the "Song and Soul of the South" with the emphasis on it's music heritage, the CVB uses the gravesite on it's webpage as an attraction, Wiki also lists Rose Hill as an attraction, the Cherry Blossom Festival lists it in the same manner, you would think the city would place security in the area at least during high traffic times. I really don't think it would hurt much that if an officer in that precinct had some paperwork to do, he could park in Rose Hill while doing it.


I would use all of this to my advantage. If you havent already, I would contact other musicians, historical organizations etc. to help with promoting the idea that the sites need to be protected due to criminal negligence. Petitions get attention at city councils and to get anything done (as in a new law or ordinance) you are going to have to work with the government in Macon. Contact the local media to highlight the problems. This brings widespread awareness and the politicians hate negative media. Im telling you things I know you probably are already aware of..Im just talking off the top of my head.

Well according to the ghost trackers site Betty has given up. Must be her "attorney" advised her she has a big mouth, was standing on posted ground and you can't file harrasment charges when you keep going back for more.....

I just read her posts in the ghost busters guest book. She seems to have serious issues and a penchant for telling other people what to do and calling them crazy. She needs to watch all that anger when she goes ghost busting...you can pick up some nasty energies if you don't watch out.

Also, for the record, I saved a picture of the person standing with one foot on a grave stone on her site. She knows what she did and no matter how much she cries foul I'm glad we all let her know we know what she did. What a bitch!

Conduct investigations in a professional manner.
Respect posted property, ask permission and do not trespass.
Ask the spirits permission prior to taking pictures.
Maintain reverence and respect during investigations.

Well - Miss Betty violated at least a few of her own organizations rules this time out - above are all in the BigBend site...maybe somebody should bust her with her OWN people.

OK, i just read and reread them 'letters'. one of em is 4 colums & the other'n is 5, both of em from the same person 9 minutes apart. they both say that she was NEAR the allman plot where her camera was in the bushes by the HEADSTONE. if she reached twix them 2 headstones to get anythang, her arms must 6 foot long apiece cause that's a long way to reach down even if you on your belly doin it!
next comes 'lara and beth' tellin that they was there & seen her 'bendin over the rope while readin the the writin at the FOOT of the toombstone'. you gotta have a neck that'll bend like a eel to read what's writ on them stones from the head of the graves.
1st off, it's the 'allman/oakley' plot. at least that's how i do it
2nd off, you ain't gotta BEND OVER nothin to read nothin on neither one of them graves. they can be read standin up OUTSIDE them ropes. if you got bad eyesight, get you some spectacles or a big ass spy glass or some binoculars!
3rd off, do like the damn sign say & keep your happy ass outside them ropes. DO NOT TRESSPASS meanin DO NOT REACH IN, DO NOT STEP IN, DO NOT LEAN IN. it's a real simple request. i been there, seen the graves, seen some of the crap people do to em, on em and around em. it's a shame. and then you get people like betty that wanna piss & whine cause she got caught.
maybe i'm the stupid one here, but i just don't get it ......................................

You're wonderful Renee.....I wondered who would catch the discrepancies in the two posts on the site. Betty said she was at the head of the graves and dropped her camera in the bushes and the other one said she was at the foot. I personally believe the post from the two supposed residents of Macon was a plant by her accomplice....and unbelievably stupid one since she couldn't get the story right! You're one smart cookie!

"Budget Constraints"....a dumb ass response that should have said "We Don't Care" in this particluar situation.

Change the fines to touching the graves to $5,000.00 for each offense ( yeah....make it a real damn fine). Hire a police officer for $45,000.00 a year. Catch two idiots a month (I am sure that would be easy)...$10,000.00 a month ($120,000.00 a year), and make money.

Take the leftover money to provide upkeep on all the graves

I like your thinking....and if they enforced even the $500 fine and caught ten....which would be easy to do.....there you go. We just need to figure out how to put constructive pressure on the people in charge to make it happen!

Ann,

In my mind two things need to happen...

1) vote the current authorities out of office
2) Deputize Buford and Candace (to do the job they are doing anyway...albeit without authority) and split the fines 50/50 with the city of Macon...

I wonder what the law is conderning Citizen Arrest....(yeah, I know....I think of Gomer on the Andy Griffith show too!)

If we could find that part out, they could just arrest the tresspassers and hold them until the police arrived. Or escort them to the jail themselves. I figure after one or two people are hauled down to the station and made to pay a fine, people might at least think twice.

I thought for a minute we were dead in the water since most citizen arrest laws call for a felony to be committed......then I checked Georgia law and here is what I found in an article written by a Georgia attorney......I think we may be on to something:

5. Can Someone Other Than A Police Officer Arrest Me?

Answer:

Any person, such as a private security guard, can make a citizen's arrest if they see a misdemeanor being attempted or committed. (A misdemeanor is a criminal offense, usually punishable with a fine or short jail term.) They also can make a legal arrest for a felony as long as it actually was committed and they have good reason to believe you did it. They must take you to a police officer or judge who is required by law to take you into custody.
