Officials consider demolishing Columbine due to 'morbid fascination'

Officials in the Jefferson County School District in Colorado are considering demolishing Columbine High School due to an uptick in the “morbid fascination” people have with the site of a 1999 shooting massacre.

letter from the district asks community members if they think the school should be torn down and rebuilt more than 20 years after two student gunmen killed 13 and injured dozens of others.

 

The district's superintendent Jason Glass also said there is concern that many shooters refer to the school's highly publicized incident as “inspiration and motivation.”

"The tragedy at Columbine High School in 1999 serves as a point of origin for this contagion of school shootings," Superintendent Jason Glass writes in the letter. "School shooters refer to and study the Columbine shooting as a macabre source of inspiration and motivation."

Let's burn down Ford's Theater, a president was shot there.  Didn't they already tear down the school in NJ?

Yes they did tear down and rebuild Sandy Hook in CT.  Not sure about the NJ. school.

It wouldn't bother me if they tore down the school;  I'm sure sightseers are a headache for  the students and staff. And yet, we can't and shouldn't destroy every place where something horrible happend;  some places are being turned into  memorials.
