In the town of Marianna, conversations about the Dozier School are difficult. Calvin Creamer, 62, knew the school cobbler who made boots with markings in the heels so they could track the boys down if they ran away – and the leather straps for the floggings. “They were mean people to start with,” he said of the men who dispensed the discipline. “Back then, it was torture for those boys. And the police didn’t care either. They would strip them down and strap them to 50-gallon drums bear naked, and then they’d beat them.” News of the torture, rape and murder of children at the Dozier School for Boys in KKK held Marianna Fl has hit news stands world wide with the release of the bombshell story in the “The Independent News UK”, see more below;
SUNDAY MARCH 3rd, 2013: For years, almost no one at the Dozier School even knew about the burial ground in a clearing in the woods on the edge of campus. It was forbidden territory. The soil here, churned in places by tiny ants, holds more than the remains of little boys. Only now is it starting to give up its dark secrets: horror stories of state-sanctioned barbarism, including flogging, sexual assault and, possibly, murder.
That the Arthur G Dozier School – a borstal for delinquent boys founded in 1900 – was not a gentle place was well-established. Boys as young as six were chained to walls, lashings with a leather strap were frequent and, in the early decades, children endured enforced labour, making bricks and working printing presses. When it was closed in 2011, it had already been the subject of separate federal and state investigations.
But, as suspicions deepen about how the boys in the burial ground died, pressure is growing again on the state to shine new light into the darkest days of the school in Marianna, a Florida Panhandle town that once was a bastion of the KKK (private investigator Bill Warner was first to bring this to your attention CLICK HERE)and the site of the 1934 lynching of Claude Neal. The pressure is coming from some of the school’s survivors, from relatives of boys who died here, and from Florida’s top US Senator, Bill Nelson.
“Where there is smoke, there is fire,” Senator Nelson declared last month, calling on the state to delay plans to sell off the 1,400 acres occupied by the old school so that a team of forensic anthropologists from the University of South Florida can complete a project begun last year to comb the campus for more graves. He wants any bodies found exhumed, identified and returned to the families they came from.

USF Team Searching Secret Cemetery At ‘Dozier School For Boys’ Marianna Fl For Bodies Of Boys Raped And Murdered By Klan Members, FDLE has No Comment. Let’s get real here all you citizens of Florida, during the 1930′s, 1940′s, 1950′s and the the 1960′s Marianna Fl was the center and a stronghold for Ku Klux Klan activity, lynching of black males along with unspeakable rape, torture and murder of white and black boys at the Dozier School for Boys was the order of the day. Dozier school guards, administration, and the local Marianna Sheriff were all linked to the violent KKK. Just what do you think happened to the black boys at the Dozier School For Boys in the 1950′s and the 1960′s.
While the Marianna Fl, (Claude Neal), lynching in 1934 may have been the last “spectacle” lynching in the nation, many other lynchings of a less publicized nature would follow. In fact, Marianna would be the site of another lynching less than 10 years later in 1942 when Dozier School for Boys sadistic guard Troy Tidwell was now 20, the KKK also had a large presence in Marianna Fl that appears to still influence the area….
