“Its ugliness and dilapidation refuse to sanitize history”

Actually, the ugliness and dilapidation are an attempt to sanitize history. The current owners of the building, the children of a member of the jury who voted to acquit the murderers, demand $4 Million for the property. They’re hoping that it disappears and can’t be used as an educational tool.

Apparently the apples did not fall far from the tree in the case of these people trying to sell the place. Such a horrific crime … how could any human treat another like that. And the old “lady” Caroline trying to get all she can from some sordid interviews.
God help the poor family of this tortured young boy, and we still haven’t righted the wrongness.
