The Mad Bomber ///Part 1/// 213
Part 1 of 2

Taken from Michael Cannell’s amazing book titled - Incendiary...
The NYPD certainly didn’t understand it. The famously tough-minded New York Detectives stumbled and fumbled, as a harassing band of news-paper reporters detailed every turn. For more than a century the police had relied on muscle and shoe leather to collar bad guys. The street corner respected the billy club and that was that. But reliable strong-arm methods proved useless in the face of a schizophrenic serial bomber.  The NYPD’s corrupt precinct Captains and stubborn Commanders resisted the new methods promoted by college-educated criminologist until a serial bomber forced them to adapt.
