So sad :( RIP to both young men...
Thank you so much for posting these photos. Thank you to Lola Sáenz and to Daniel for their photographs.Much sympathy to the Locón and Figueroa families and to the friends of these two beautiful young men. We are grieving with you, and we will never forget. Some visitors to this spot comment that the perpetrators have been indicted, and that is a good thing, but these two lives full of promise are still lost. And homes have been lost. And the same practices that caused such death and destruction continue. We must end these practices, to honor Nicholas Figueroa and Moises Locón, and really, all of humanity.
I just walked past this on my way home. I had a thought that it should be transformed into a memorial/park. It could be gated with benches and plaques of the victims with a stream of flowers on the sidewalk. Just an idea.
@12:25. Would that the city could take over the lot and create a park. That would be wonderful. But...they won't!
