Desecration

I don't understand why a pilgrim would feel the need to desecrate these stone markers, along distance markers, and even ruins found along the way...
Every marker seems to be defaced. Every surface that can accept a sharpie stroke gets mangled by someone's selfish need to express themselves on a surface others hold dear. It is surprising only in the fact that there are so many outlets for people to communicate on line in this day and age and the defacing of monuments still goes on. I am from Canada and perpetrators of this kind of travesty are prosecuted if caught defacing property that is in the public domain.
Where has the respect gone? There needs to be some accountability and consequences to these actions.
