Boston bombing suspect doesn't deserve to be buried in Hamden

I read in the Tuesday, May 7, issue of the New Haven Register, of the Douglas Keane, a liberal alum of Yale (now retired), intention to donate one of his burial plots at Mount Carmel cemetery to the family of Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev. He’s doing it “in memory of his mother, who taught me to love thine enemy!”
Why doesn’t Mr Keane donate his two plots in Hamden to someone who would is more deserving of them? My suggestion for Mr. Keane would be to yet buy another plot in New Hampshire (where he now resides), and have Tamerlan Tsamaev buried beside his plot! His own native country does not want him, his father never came back to America to claim his body (but an uncle who lives here did - and he himself admitted being shameful of what his nephew did). Now all of a sudden he’s worried about proper burial? Tamerlan’s mother decided not to come back to America, because she would be arrested on an outstanding shoplifting charge. This man does not deserve the honor of a proper burial or anything from our great country!
Think of the three people who died, and those that were maimed for life - would you be so forgiving if it were a member of your family that was killed or hurt? No, I don’t think so. I would not give him or his family the last laugh! Step back, Mr. Keane - think it over. What would you have engraved on his headstone?
