Memorial Destroyed

The Memorial of Elvis owned by the Memories of Elvis Fan Club in Auckland, New Zealand is destroyed by vandals. Some people walking their dog in the park, saw it lying on the concrete circle surrounding the base, and told the council. who came and took away the broken part and have locked it away for safekeeping over the long weekend. It must have taken a huge amount of effort to break off the figure, as the whole thing is made of granite set in concrete, and reinforced with steel rods. Unfortunately it is not insured, because being in a public place it is too high a risk, but the Memorial has been standing in Cranwell Park since it was unveiled in January 2000, and nothing too bad has ever happened to it.

I am disgusted at such a display of ignorance, disrespect not only to Elvis's memory but also to the people who put this statue together. Its a shame in this day an age we have to put up with vandals like these. But even with the top gone off its a beautiful statue, I hope it can be fixed. T C B

How do we have so many idiots in the world who go about breaking memorials grave stones ect. Do they have No Idea the hurt they cause people by their actions. We need tougher sentences for this type of people. They seem to be jealous and bad. No excuses for them they are just pure evil people.
