With hundreds of people flooding to cities in search of income, the cities became populous and dangerous. Streetcars regularly tumbled from draw bridges, and horsed carriages bolted into crowds. Each day, an average of two people were killed at Chicago’s railroad crossings. Fire was also a leading cause of death, claiming dozens of lives per day. The cities were not prepared to protect their residents.
Throughout these days, the president “ordered military troops and riot trained federal officers” [“1992 Riot in Los Angeles”] to help control the situation.

Therefore, the bomb was an awful solution to an almost solved
