The shootings at Pearl High School was the first of the modern-day rash of school shootings. But it could have been much worse. But for...

  • The Bath School Disaster (V Tech wasn't the worst school disaster in US history

    With all due respect and sympathy to the victims and their families of the Columbine and McDonald's shootings, the Oklahoma bombing, and other mass murders, they were not the worst mass murders of children in the US. On May 18, 1927, 45 people, mostly children, were killed and 58 were injured when disgruntled and demented school board member Andrew Kehoe dynamited the new school building in Bath, Michigan out of revenge over his foreclosed farm due in part to the taxes required to pay for the new school.

    Beslan hostage-taker gets lifeFrom: Reuters From correspondents in Vladikavkaz May 26, 2006 A RUSSIAN court has sentenced the only surviving Beslan hostage-taker to life in prison for his part in the bloody 2004 school siege that killed 331 people. Nurpashi Kulayev, a Chechen carpenter born in 1980, was found guilty on all charges, which included terrorism and murder. He had pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors had requested the death penalty for Kulayev, but Judge Tamerlan Aguzarov said a current moratorium on capital punishment ruled that out. "(Kulayev) deserves the death sentence but because the Russian Government has introduced a moratorium on...

    Watching the ball drop, twirling a noisemaker, kissing your sweetheart, and making a resolution that rarely comes to pass -- everyone looks forward to the memory of a new year. But one group will be ringing in the New Year a little differently…through a children’s jihad retreat, with a guest speaker who exalts terrorists and another who is linked to al-Qaeda. The majority of Islamic organizations within the United States have, at one time or another, been cited for their connections to terrorism, whether by support of terror groups or through actual terrorist activity carried out by its members. Two...

    BESLAN, Russia, Sept. 5 - Inside the charred, bullet-pocked wreckage of Middle School No. 1, there lies evidence of the terror Russia faces: Two parts of the library's wooden floor had been pried up, evidently by the heavily armed attackers who seized the school last week and held more than 1,100 hostages for 52 hours. Beneath the boards, investigators now suspect, the attackers had secreted a cache of weapons or other equipment weeks and perhaps months before their attack - possibly during a seemingly innocuous summer renovation, officials said. Investigators have only begun to piece together the planning that went...

    It's Nord Ost all over again, but a whole lot worse. Not just because there are children among the hostages being held in the school in Beslan, North Ossetia. And not just because the school building, unlike the Dubrovka Theater, isn't a concrete cube that can be stormed following a gas attack. Gas would simply disperse in the school. And the hostage-takers will have learned the lessons of Nord Ost, making sure that the explosives strapped to the female suicide bombers in their ranks go off if and when the building is stormed. But also because the ongoing hostage crisis...
