The right to forget

There are some crimes so heinous, so evil, that they call for all trace and all record of the perpetrator to be expunged from human memory; the perp is unhumaned, in other words. I do sincerely wish that the wretched papers would stop printing stories about the person who has just murdered 150 of his fellow men. I don't want to see him mentioned, remember his name, see his photograph or read about his life. For God's sake let all memory of him be lost, forgotten and rejected.

Agreed. Let everything that ever existed about him be removed, burnt, wiped clean - everything; not a trace left behind.

What about his still living parents, then?
