    Mass school bombing in 1927 puts Sandy Hook in context

    On May 18, 1927, a part-time caretaker at a school in Bath, Michigan, killed 45 people, including 38 children, when he blew up a school and then killed himself, along with two first responders at the scene. Another 58 people were wounded.

    The 38 children were in grades three through six.

    The Bath School Bombing faded quickly from history. What media there was in 1927 left the town after about a week, since aviator Charles Lindbergh had started on his flight to Europe.

    However, there are parallels between the Sandy Hook and Bath disasters that are worth discussing.

    The killer in the Bath School Bombing, Andrew Kehoe, spent months placing explosives inside the school. He used his job as a handyman to wire together two types of explosives, in an elaborate plan to bring down the building while it was occupied with students and teachers.

    They did not have our LSM or the little o to contend with.

    And the above pales in comparison to the Beslan Massacre in September of 2004.
