Greetings, Brooklyn. Today is the 103rd day of the year.

ON THIS DAY in 1910, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle published an article titled “200 Women in Meat Riot Wreck a Butcher’s Shop.”

The article focused on how a Brownsville mob of housewives destroyed a butcher’s shop. The owner was attacked “by his own goods.”

“The kosher meat riots broke out anew in Brownsville to-day, and for the first time, the Brownsville police made arrests, capturing four women after a mob of 200 housewives had reduced Benjamin Ditman’s butcher shop … to a mass of kindling wood and shattered glass,” the Eagle reported.
