Worse Elementary Student Killing - 1927 Bath Bombing (38 kids)

Everyone thinks this is a "new" deal but this has happened, unfortunately, before.

Andrew Kehoe was mad that he was losing his farm in Bath Township, Michigan, because of school taxes. So, for about a year, he used his job at the school, which gave him access, to fill the school with hundreds of pounds of pyrotol.

On May 18, 1927, he killed his wife and burned down his farm. While firefighters were at the farm, a bomb went off at the school. 38 kids (2nd to 7th grade), 4 adults and two teachers were killed.

The bomber then detonated a car bomb filled with fragmentation devices, as rescuers arrived. The superintendent and Kehoe were both killed by the car bomb.

And the point of this was...to put things into perspective?

You're an idiot. Fail.

Actually, it might shed some light on the kind of person, the type of rage someone would have, to want to kill children en masse.

There was no intent to make anyone feel better or worse, except perhaps to those who feel that all is lost now when in fact, unfortunately, these isolated child killers have cropped up from time to time.

not surprised that people are jumping on your arse for this thread. I actually think its one of your better ones and its very true that today while disgusting and horrible isn't some kind of brand new thing. Society is more connected now than ever before so things like today appear to be new or worse.

What's new is that this stuff happens FAR more frequently than it ever did in the past.

That's what's new.

Just go back to last year in Norway. Dude kills 77 people, mostly kids on an island. It's no shocker humans are capable of evil shit, it just sucks to see.

You can go throughout history and find massacres that will make you sick to your stomach. It's apparently human nature (albeit a small percentage)

Are you trying to marginalize what happened today?

Shhhhh! This is a new development that has only resulted from the expiration of the Clinton assault weapons ban! We can stop these events by making certain rifles illegal!

He's trying to equate madness today w/ 'yesteryear' b/c some here will act like guns today are the causes of all ill. No, it doesn't make anyone feel better, it just informs others that this stuff has and will continue to go on.

Why do you have to be such a cocksucker? You're the epitome of what's wrong with this country. Just because people don't share your views that makes them your enemy so you abandon a live and let live standard for a passive agressive approach to what exactly? Being a douche? You accomplish nothing.

The bodies aren't even cold yet.

Sorry but setting off a bomb is not the equivalent to walking up to screaming kids 1 by 1 and putting bullets into their brains.

Anyone can press a fricking button or light a fuse. It takes someone on an entirely new level of fricked up to do what is described above.
