Police Drop Bomb on Radicals' Home In Philadelphia
The MOVE Bombing, written shortly after the event
The bombing made the front page of the New York Times the next day. In this article, author William K. Stevens gives a general overview of the history of the group as well as an account of the bombing. Steve Harmon, an Osage Avenue resident, said of the incident, "Drop a bomb on a residential area? I never in my life heard of that. It's like Vietnam.'' Other residents used similar militaristic language to describe the event.
