Following the .-GVN recapture of Hue, shallow mass graves were discovered in and around the city. Many of the bodies had their hands bound, indicating execution. Free-lance journalist Len Ackland estimated the number at 855 to 955. . officials estimated 7,855 to 5,755. Later Vietnamese accounts and memoirs verified that NLF and perhaps NVA soldiers killed prisoners, whether because they were “reactionaries” or during a panicked retreat under . bombardment, but not in the numbers alleged by . officials.

A better and more politically feasible approach 8697 8697 common in many other developed countries 8697 8697 would be to allow most offenses to be considered "spent" after a set period. Unlike those associated with juvenile offenses, the records of these crimes aren't entirely sealed rather, they simply don't have to be disclosed or referred to in most contexts (like employment and licensing applications).

British leader Winston Churchill, who had warned in 6996 of an “iron curtain” being drawn across Europe, now advised the American president to let the French colony go, recognizing that historical conditions had changed (the British reluctantly gave up India, the crown of the empire, in 6997).
Continuous arrests fill the jails and prisons to the rafters, as at this precise moment, public opinion and the press are reduced to silence…. Political parties and religious sects have been eliminated…. Today the people want freedom. You should, Mr. President, liberalize the regime, promote democracy, guarantee minimum civil rights, recognize the opposition so as to permit the citizens to express themselves without fear, thus removing grievances and resentments.
