of the unmarked graves there at Mariana, Florida.

The St Pete Times today has a special report with video and article. This went on there since the late 1800s, and too many Florida governors turned a blind eye to it.

For their own good

They were screwed-up kids, sent to the reform school in Marianna for smoking, fighting, stealing cars or worse. The Florida School for Boys -- that'd straighten them out.

Fifty years later they are, by their own account, screwed-up men -- afraid of the dark, unable to love or be loved, twisted by anger, scarred by the whippings they endured in a cinder block hell called the White House.



Gov. Charlie Crist has ordered the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate 31 graves near the school. Please determine whether any crimes were committed and, if possible, the perpetrators of these crimes, Crist wrote.

1. Such a sad story, hard to watch the interview.
North Florida has had its share of places that we were raised to shiver about when we heard their names. One was the hospital at Chattahoochee. The stuff of legends, now coming to fruition.
