Community doesn't want Tsarnaev grave in Vermont cemetary

A man is offering a plot to bury Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the Boston marathon bombing suspects. Paul Keane believes in loving his enemy and has offered the plot next to his mother.

But other people who have loved ones buried in the cemetery in Connecticut don't like the idea according to an ABC report.

"It's a disgrace, a lot of these people that are here, including my father, fought for freedom for this country. my father was a war hero and people who are terrorists to this country should not be in this cemetery," said one woman.

"This person, no matter how much of a pariah, no matter how despicable, no matter what a leper he is, he's a human being and he deserves the right to be buried like anybody else," said Keane."

Other plots have been offered, but no decision has been made yet.
