22. Legally and Morally fine
His property, he was full in his rights to do what he did legally.

Nothing saying that a little makeshift shrine is the morally correct thing to do, and if you're doing it by tresspassing on someone else's property I'd say it might actually be imoral to put up the memorial.

Still the guy is obviously a dick. I'm a nontheistic agnostic and I don't want religious symbols on my property, but if this had happened, I'd let the guy have it there for at least a few months, and then when it's done collect the stuff together and keep it for him, or let him know it's time to take it down.

It has nothing to do with laws or morals. It has everything to do with just being a nice compassionate human being and understanding and helping someone who is suffering.

What a prick this guy must be.
