West Nickel Mines Amish School

Yesterday, 32-year-old Charles Carl Roberts IV killed five schoolgirls and then himself at the West Nickel Mines Amish School.

It seems strangely appropriate that Google maps does not have a high-resolution satellite view of the Amish school.

Update. The school building is gone. The Amish kept no monument to the terrible evil that occurred that day, no constant reminder of the pain they endured. Instead, they leveled the building to the ground, and forgave and reconciled with the family of the shooter. Incredible!

    These people (the Amish) do not allow their pictures taken for religious reasons. So perhaps out of respect for their values, Google has chosen not to have the hi-res images available to avoid exploitation of these plain folks by common gawkers, the media included.
