Subsequently, the French and British - as well as the United States when they entered World War 1 - developed and used lethal gas in war.

Although it was discovered that the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, the Neshoba County Sheriff's Office and the Philadelphia, Mississippi Police Department were involved, only 7 men were convicted and served less than six years.
