Worst human ever destroyed Kentucky Memorial Day display

Henderson Police Department

You’ll have a tough time finding a worse person than this Henderson man who plowed through a Memorial Day display over the weekend.

Anthony Burrus of Henderson destroyed 20 crosses and damaged another 160 when he drove his ’79 Thunderbird through the memorial in the town’s Central Park. He was arrested on charges of criminal mischief and leaving the scene of an accident.

Thanks to some good people, the crosses were repaired and put back in place before today’s ceremony. That doesn’t change the fact that a horrible human being did a sickening act to the display.

    I’m sure he’ll have some time to personally get to know some vets while in jail… I’m sure he’ll make lots of friends

    Drew, you lead a sheltered life if you think this young man is the “Worst human ever”. Let’s start with child abusers, you ever heard of them? He is far from the bottom of the list. But if you truly think he is, then I would have to put you below him.

    Couple a things. We don’t know why. Drew assumes it was an intentional and heinous act, but the reporting doesn’t say. One charge alleges intent, but the other calls it an accident. As usual, it’s probably best to wait until the facts are in before passing judgment.

    Thus, the charges seem to be in the alternative. Either he intentionally/wantonly damaged property, or he didn’t. If there was first-degree criminal mischief (intent), then how was it an accident? The charge should fit the circumstances and the defined or usual meaning of the words. If it was an accident (no intent) (KRS 189.580(2)?), then how was it first-degree criminal mischief? Attempts to prove one charge could undermine the other.

    On the more serious charge, the prosecution will have to prove more than $1000 in property damage (KSR 512.020) on the basis of 20 destroyed crosses and mere damage to 160 more. That’s sure to be contested, unless the man has to settle for a public defender. The damage numbers come from a Facebook post. Initial reporting stated that officials found “dozens” of crosses knocked over by a car Saturday morning. Some of them were damaged, while others were destroyed. The committee in charge of the crosses spent the rest of the weekend repairing them and putting them back in place before the Memorial Day ceremony at the park. If that was on a volunteer basis and at no cost, and the numbers are not well documented, then the threshold damage amount might be hard to prove. Isn’t the law grand?

    He admitted to being under the influence when running through it. So while not the worst human ever, definitely on the list of pretty awful people. Just glad he didn’t kill someone while making his terrible choice.

    He didn’t do it on purpose. He was drunk.
