Video: Possible second cemetery located at Dozier

I'm not clear why civil rights activists aren't over the Dozier School for Boys abuse case like white on rice. Seriously, the practice of segregation permeated much of the school's history due to Jim Crow and it wasn't until late 60s, possibly 70s that the school became integrated.

There were separate buildings, facilities, even the "White House" where children

were beaten and tortured was segregated. So, it seems only logical that children who had every function in their life segregated were also buried in separate locations.

Researchers from the University of South Florida are currently exhuming bodies from the "Boot Hill Cemetery" but this was widely known as the "colored" cemetery for the school's history.

So, where are the white boys buried?

It is absolutely illogical to assume that only black boys died and were buried at the school; the scanty records the school has shows that multiple white students died. Will there be white bodies in Boot Hill? Most likely, but those may be the remains of those who died after the school integrated.

There is no doubt in my mind that there are bodies buried in another location (if not haphazardly buried throughout the property).

USF addressed the possibility of a second cemetery in this news report below.


  1. Why in HELL would any official want to BLOCK investigation
    of unaccounted deaths at a reform school? Maybe they fear
    evidence may prove wrongdoing and open up the state to
    numerous lawsuits by families of murdered kids. But SO
    BE IT. This needs to be EXPOSED, just like every other
    instance of gov't sanctioned SECRET CHILD ABUSE that
    may go on daily under our very noses.

  2. Reminds me of the "Brubaker" film starring Robert Redford.where a similar scenario involving adult inmates on a prison farm was portrayed. Who knows what can of worms this will open? "Pandora's Box" will burst open and the whole sordid, sorry history of the U.S. penal system - and its related/concordant antecedent, the slave plantation system - will be revealed to the world. The powers-that-be are acutely aware of and deathly afraid of what this inevitability will unleash. The political, legal, financial and cultural ramifications are incalculable.
