I have watched many documentaries of all kinds and attempted to be as open-minded as possible. In this case, however, I simple cannot be. I have never seen such an attempt to excuse, and soften the story of someone who was quite frankly and monster. All this by people, who would quite likely have been amongst Carl Panzram's victims had the opportunity been provided, this to include the hero of the story, Prison guard Henry Lesser . Disgusting. Pity I suppose for this same cast of characters that they didn't have access to Hitler or Pol Pot so as to find out about their tragic childhoods and thus soften the evil of their crimes .
