The memorial was for 9-year-old Christian Clopp, who died in 2012 from brain cancer. His father, Mark, a former Hamilton Township police officer, posted on Facebook about the incident.

The dead child’s father was furious.

“So, my day started out horribly, after learning what happened to Christian’s memorial. After controlling my own emotions and assisting my family with same, I finally found a moment to put all of this into perspective,” the man said.

“Aside from the two morons facing criminal charges, I saw a community once again come together for a cause. I’ve heard from hundreds of people offering assistance. Friends and strangers went to wash the memorial off,” Mark Clopp added.

Mr. Clopp and his family and friends cleaned and disinfected the memorial. Later they started a fund to expand and improve the park.

Clopp also noted in a Facebook post that he refused to do any TV media hits on the vandalism of his boy’s memorial.

“I don’t think a 10 second clip of my feelings are going to change what happened in any way,” he wrote. “As a father and retired police officer, I think this incident can be turned into a positive by becoming a learning experience for all.”


The man who was seen on the video urinating on the memorial has lost hise job according to the New York Post.
