The Gardner Heist was a major art heist where 13 works of art were stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, Massaschusetts. Two men, came into the museum on March 18th, 1990 at around 1:30 in the morning ready to rob the art. Two guards who worked at the museum were switching spots and they got a buzz in of the two thieves dressed as two police officers. The security guard let them in, and later got cuffed and sent to the basement. They stole 500 million dollars worth of art that night cutting some paintings out of frames in the process. No one has been able to recover the paintings since. This is important to realize the fact that not everyone is who they say they are and to double check resources.
This photo is showing an article of the TIMES after the bombing of the world trade center in 1993. The perpatrator, Ramzi Yousef wanted to cause this bombing because apparently many Jews had worked in the two towers. His plan was to see that two bomb trucks would be parked in the North Towers parking lot and then they would explode. Ramzi wanted both of the buildings to fall, and Osama Bin-Laden was sad to see they didnt both collapse. In total 1,042 people were non-fatally injured and 6 people died. This shows how security is crucial to many buildings.
