Personally I've never set foot on that property and I have no intention of ever doing so.

Perhaps it isn't a good idea to glorify symbols of corruption, treachery and cruelty.


I went up to see the place. I didn’t get the impression that it glorified anything. To me, it was a graphic and gaudy display of excess and corruption. Complete with its dated dishwasher and scummy reflecting pool and overgrown helicopter landing pad. All it needs is a plaque to remind everyone how the story ends.

I think it should be left there as is as a reminder. Human nature is corruptible. Crime doesn’t pay. Abuse of power generally ends badly for the abuser.

I had heard there was talk about restoring it as an art school for children. If people don’t want it left there that sounded good to me as a project.
