Ghost hunting is dumb in the first place. But trying to prove ghosts exists while drunk and high? That’s so stupid, its genius.

It sucks that a piece of history was destroyed though.

Assuming they’re found guilty, the court should fine them a huge some of money in addition to making them spend time in prison.

Now I’m facing charges for burning a plantation and I know why…

It appears that the fire was not accidental, but deliberate.

Doran said the ringleader seemed to be Dusten Davenport, 31, of Fort Worth, Texas, who is suspected of having the idea to start the fire, and who began stacking up pieces of wood.

The LeBeau Plantation ignited Friday about 2 a.m., according to Fire Chief Thomas Stone. The landmark, at Bienvenue and Lebeau streets, was built in the 1850s and was one of the largest plantations south of New Orleans.

Davenport, along with Joshua Allen, 21; Joshua Briscoe, 20; Jerry Hamblen, 17; and Joseph Landin, 20, all of Grand Prairie, Texas, were arrested on Friday on charges of arson, simple burglary and criminal damage worth more than $50,000, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

I realize it’s history, but I wouldn’t care if all former plantations were just razed.

They should just put up a sign saying “Here is the burnt ruin of a slave plantation” and call it a day. History preserved.

My favorite comment:

Horrible as slavery was, it was a part of our history. We need to remember it. Having some of the former plantations still around is a good thing, especially if we’ve preserved the slave quarters. Turn them into museums. Show people how badly greedy white plantation owners treated their black slaves, and show how the two groups lived in comparison.

re: #8 LGF Subscription: Breathes Like Egyptian Cotton

I think this comment Alan Greg Newkirk left over there was much better, if you want my opinion. It was at least one of the best comments there.

The loss of any piece of history is a tragedy, even if its a part of a shameful chapter of our past. Plantations like these are modern-day reminders of slavery, a silent testimony to one of the worst parts of American history and without it we lose a part of that reminder. Its easy to dismiss something when you have never encountered it, but when confronted with a relic from that era, it serves as a pointed reminder of what happened.

So even though it was a plantation house that was built from the sweat of slaves, it still is important as a reminder of the evils of slavery. It’s loss is an important one that should not be dismissed as a “oh, but it had to do with slavery, so it being gone is a good thing, right?”. It’s not a good thing. Reminders like this from our past, learning from these events, the understanding that comes from it is what will prevent these events from repeating.

re: #12 CriticalDragon1177

I read that one as well, but I can’t help my apathy on this one.

14 calochortus  Sun, Nov 24, 2013 8:09:29am

I’m not sure that every plantation house needs to be preserved. It seems this one was abandoned for decades and was in pretty poor shape. While the parish had vague (and expensive) plans to restore it and make it a tourist attraction, I don’t see where it was all that historically important.

That said, these idiots should definitely spend some time in jail.

Clearly the arsonist was possessed by a demon.

My sister has “proof” that there are ghosts at her house: sometimes her dogs start barking and there is nothing there, so there must be ghosts…
