this day in crime history: september 28, 1973

On this date in 1973, a bomb was detonated at the IT&T building in New York.  The device was placed in the company’s Latin American section.  It caused extensive damage to several offices, but no one was killed or injured.  Another bomb was detonated that day at IT&T’s Rome headquarters.  The Weather Undergound took responsibility for the bombings, which they claimed were in retaliation for the company’s role in the coup that took place in Chile earlier that month.

  1. John D.:
    Although the bombings this group did were deplorable, the REAL crime comes when we see how the surviving members did AFTER all this…professorships indeed?

    They should have ALL been tried and convicted of treason against this nation.
    (execution wouldn’t have been all that bad, either)

    Stay safe out there.
