Bloomington Grave Sites Need Repaired After Trump Rally

Dozens of volunteers, led by off-duty firefighters, spent several hours on Sunday repairing headstones and the grounds at East Lawn Cemetery in Bloomington which were damaged by the overflow parking for a Donald Trump rally.


President of the Bloomington firefighters union John Meckley says he's not sure how people couldn't have seen they were parking in a cemetery even though the gravestones are all ground level.



Meckely estimates at least a dozen of the headstones were damaged. Parking on Central Illinois Regional Airport property had become full before the rally even started.
