History's Blotter: December 2, 1956 | The Mad Bomber  

The Mad Bomber

The Mad Bomber, as the papers and police titled him, had been planting bombs in New York City for almost 16 years, but, in 1956, the bombings became deadlier and more frequent. Police Commissioner Kennedy called for “the greatest manhunt in the history of the Police Department.”

Detectives consulted with criminologist/psychiatrist, Dr. James Brussels, to create what was essentially one of the earliest criminal profiles.

Let's travel back to December 2, 1956 to learn about a moment in law enforcement history.
