There may not be a single cemetery in Massachusetts or in the entire country that is willing to be Tamerlan Tsarnaev's final resting place, a funeral director told CNN on Monday.

And that has left Peter Stefan in a very difficult spot.

"I think they (the cemeteries that have been asked) probably fear reprisals from people who have loved ones being buried there, people who may potentially buy lots there," the funeral director said.

--------------

But, "We have to bury this guy," he continued. "Whoever he is, in this country, we bury people."

Do we really have to bury this guy?

Why don't they just cremate his body and throw his ashes in the nearest dumpster they can find?

Muslims don't believe in Cremation.

That makes some sense, but if he or his family didn't consider that guy to be a Muslim, is there any legal requirement to bury him as opposed to cremate his body?  That funeral director says we bury people in this country, but cremations are a pretty common thing. 

And I guess I'm mostly venting because that story is the front page story at CNN, and forgive me for being inconsiderate, I just don't care too much about what they do to this guy's body.

They buried Osama at sea.  Tell this funeral director to rent a boat.  There's one full of holes in some guy's backyard near him.
