I find it completely preposterous that they cannot pardon those people. It is simply unjust. It was an ignorant time for America and with the intelligence we have today, with the exception of some lacking in the government, those people should have a fair pardon.

I think people pretty much know they were all innocent. The past is the past. We learn from it, but history is full of injustices and atrocities that most of know were wrong.

This is just like descendants of African American slaves wanting reperations.

How did that ever turn out?
