Witness Assails Goode as "Mayor of Murder"
Public response to Mayor Goode's handling of the situation
While initially dealing with the accusations of the mother of one of the MOVE members killed in the bombing, this article also touches on the tactics of MOVE leading up to the bombing. The author never explicitly says it, but this article reads as a condemnation of Mayor Goode and his predecessors, William Green and Frank Rizzo, for not adequately solving the MOVE problem sooner. This article also touches on the public backlash against Goode; MOVE members or not, eleven people were dead as a result of his decisions that day.
