200 year ago - 1815 April 6 - In England's Dartmoor Prison, American prisoners of war are fired on by enraged guards. The event, that became known as the Dartmoor massacre, left at least seven Americans dead and about 60 wounded. Tempers flared when the inmates, who were upset with delays in their repatriation after the end of the War of 1812, became unruly and began pelting their guards with rocks. The guards then overreacted in retaliation. There was an investigation but no one was ever punished for the shootings.

Thanks Stan we had a few Bushrangers. It is tempting to be sorry for some of them.

50 years ago - 1965 April 11 - In his Minnesota home, Dennis Jurgens, 3, dies from a perforated bowel. The little boy was found to be half starved with many physical injuries including bite marks to his genitals. After more than a 20 year delay, Dennis' stepmother, Lois Jurgens, was charged with his murder and convicted. After serving only eight years, Mrs. Jurgens was released on good behavior and died in 2013. There have been some who also suspected that she might have been responsible for the deaths of her husband and her mother-in-law.
