An Alabama professor accused of shooting six colleagues was a suspect in the attempted mail bombing of a Harvard Medical School professor in December of 1993, the Boston Globe reported.
Amy Bishop and her husband James Anderson were questioned by authorities after a package with two bombs was sent to Dr. Paul Rosenberg, the newspaper reported.
When Rosenberg saw the long, thin package had wires and a cylinder inside, he and his wife called police and ran from their Newton, Mass. home Dec. 19, 1993, the Globe reported.
Two 6-inch pipe bombs connected to two nine-volt batteries were found in the package.
The new information comes a day after information surfaced that Bishop killed her brother. The 1986 shooting was ruled accidental and no charges were filed against her.
Bishop, who has four children, was arrested soon after the violent Friday shooting at the University of Alabama and charged with capital murder. Other charges are pending. Her husband was detained and questioned by police but has not been charged.
Three of her colleagues were killed in shooting, and a 9 mm handgun was found in the bathroom of the building where the shootings occurred.
Bishop, a rare woman suspected of a workplace shooting, had just months left teaching at school in Huntsville because she was denied tenure.(continued)

Well guess she and her hubby should be on a terrorist list somewhere. 0bamabot in the bargain..
This country is now run by commies and commies are teaching in our schools so that we have these robots who spout crap now. If I were Lady Liberty I think I would retire until this crisis passes.
I wonder if they vacation with Ayers and Dohrn?
Fanatical supporter of Obama???
Not surprised here.
2 of the Victims were Alumni of NC State University:
A family source said Bishop, a mother of four children - the youngest a third-grade boy - was a far-left political extremist who was obsessed with President Obama to the point of being off-putting.
Aren’t they all?
Oh really?? That would make a great thread, wouldn't it? ;-)
So these Keystone Cops thought she manages to accidentally shoot a shotgun THREE TIMES? Something stinks to high #### here.
Bishop, 42, a neurobiologist who studied at Harvard University, joined the UAH biology faculty as an assistant professor in fall 2003. She was taken Friday night in handcuffs from a police precinct to the county jail and could be heard saying, "It didn't happen. There's no way. ... They are still alive."
Setting up an insanity defense? Shocker there...
I wonder how “big sis” missed her?
“An article from the Boston Herald says she was known for a fanatical devotion to Obama.”
Maybe obama will have a beerfest with her and find out how hate invaded her life.
Yea, the liberals are starting to get a bit crazy because Obama isn't being "liberal enough".
“Bishop, a rare woman”
If she’s that rare. I say put her in the chair till she’s extra crispy!
I predicted after the now famous clips of Obama supporters cheering the election of their messiah (lower case intentional) and declaring they no longer had to pay for their homes and gas and . . . .that when those promised went unfilled the loonies would start to go nuts.
I also predicted attempts to take him out would also come from the same kooks for the same reasons.
At the fear of seeing a picture of “you know who”...she fits the liberal stereotype of on ugly woman.
Liberal ugly is more than skin deep, it goes all the way to the heart.
Chattanooga Times update with new snippets from husband.
I think the really important question here is how this woman got a job as a college professor in the first place with that history. Did the University personnel ignore her status as a suspect in a killing and in a potential bombing? Or did it just never bother to look? Is it because they hoped to get an Ivy league type in a deep south school? This should be investigated further.
“A family source said Bishop, ... was a far-left political extremist who was obsessed with President Obama to the point of being off-putting. “
A far-Left professor? I’ll bet that never happened before! /sarcasm
