Sorry it is a 'working building' hang the historical shit in a museum.
That is a good point. I would agree wholeheartedly if it was a private building. It is not a private building it is a public building. It was built with public funds to do the people's business. I would assume that it was not haphazardly adorned, but adorned to reflect the people it was built to serve and to reflect the purpose of the building.

How is it different today for a worker to walk by the murals than it was 60 years ago?

This thing has such great value in its current context.

What do we learn when we whitewash every unsavory event? If ever there should be a lesson on justice it is in a courthouse and this thing sounds like a masters thesis.
