The Cokeville Bombing
Manage episode 344968317 series 2950849
On May 16th, 1986, the small town of Cokeville, Wyoming, experienced a bombing at the Cokeville elementary school. That day, husband and wife David and Doris Young entered the school with guns and a homemade bomb. The bomb eventually detonated, and in what many call the Cokeville miracle, not a single student or member of the faculty was killed.
Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the Cokeville bombing. David Young had once been the sole police officer in the small town of Cokeville. He was fired for misconduct after only six months. And over the years, he developed some very strange ideas and began to associate with some different hate groups. He walked into the school that day, intent on killing everyone inside. The events of that day are incredible and, to many miraculous.
