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.

I agree completley , I don't view it for anything more than it is, corruption, excess and how it always ends. For all of these folks there are only two outcomes, prison or death. No one ever retires in peace from that life.
