Deadliest school killing in U.S, history? May 18 1927 in Bath, Michigan
Edited on Tue Apr-17-07 02:35 PM by piedmont
"The Bath School disaster is the name given to not one (as the name implies) but three bombings in Bath Township, Michigan, USA, on May 18, 1927, which killed 45 people and injured 58. Most of the victims were children in second to sixth grades attending the Bath Consolidated School. Their deaths constitute the deadliest act of mass murder in a school in U.S. history. The perpetrator was school board member Andrew Kehoe, who was upset by a property tax that had been levied to fund the construction of the school building. He blamed the additional tax for financial hardships which led to foreclosure proceedings against his farm. These events apparently provoked Kehoe to plan his attack."

4. Interesting..and terrifying read
What its so sad, tragic and horrifying when people become disturbed enough to become, creative, mass murderers. The capacity of the human mind to do evil is frightening.

It surpases the horror of alot of fiction.

9. So he had a hard life and he took it out by blowing up children?
There should be laws on allowing certain bloodlines to breed, and licenses for breeding. Asswipes like this shouldn't have been born, or had children.
