Worse than the Devil: Recounting the 1917 Police Station Bombing

Worse than the DevilIn 1917, a bomb exploded in a Milwaukee Police Station, killing nine officers and a civilian. No greater number of police officers would die in the same incident until the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center. Criminal defense attorney Dean Strang has taken up the monumental task of providing an in-depth look into this often overlooked, yet still fascinating event in his new book, Worse than the Devil: Anarchists, Clarence Darrow, and Justice in a Time of Terror.

Urban Milwaukee has published a wonderful article which features an extended excerpt of Strang’s first outing as an author. Check it out here, and if you find you self hooked, go out and get it!
