Aum Attack Anniversary

File under: Gurus Doin' Time

It has been ten years today since members of the Aum Shinrikyo cult gassed 5000 and killed 12 in a Tokyo, Japan subway station on March 20, 1995. Hoping to become a new emperor after the chaos he expected the attack to cause, Aum guru Shoko Asahara instead landed in a jail cell with a death sentence and the apparent loss of his mental health (if he's not trying to pull an "Oddfather" on us.)
