The Murder of Louis AllenFrom 60 Minutes tonight.
Sad story but hardly shocking to anyone over 40.
My guess is there are two schools of thought on this.
Why bring up something from 40 years ago and re-open old wounds?
Yes, bring it up because Louis Allen deserves justice and the youngsters need to know about the history and know what the "old timers" are referring to.
My guess is we'll have both expressed here.Advertisement

IMO, as long as the families want to persue it, if there is any chance that justice can be served, then it should be pursued.

We then find it easy to say things like: "When we had prayer in schools our world was a much better place." Or "America was really America back then." Simplistic axioms that are myths at best and lies at worst when confronted with the facts of actual events in history.
