Bonnie and Clyde

On this day in 1934, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were killed over near Gibsland in Bienville Parish.  This ended a massive manhunt for the pair, who had killed 14 people, some of them law enforcement officers.
I put this video together a couple of years ago and ran it on the blog, seems fitting to do it again today.


  1. Criminals were not treated like kings back then. Today these law officers would be in jail.

  2. And if you think their ambush was bad, you should try Bossier politics! LOL...

  3. The liberal news media would crucify law enforcement officers if they handle a situation like today. Not only would the news media be hell, But they would be sued by the family of the criminal and the government would pay them saying it just cheaper that way.

  4. Jim, did you know that Bonnie Parker was a writer and a poet? She wrote a number of pieces, one poem being, "The Street Girl", an interesting look at the double-standard in how 1930's society viewed men of ill repute versus women of the same. In the end, she reaped the violence she sowed, and I have zero sympathy for her. Her poetry is worth the read though.

  5. By the way, "Trails End" is almost a prophetic tale of the violent end that awaited Bonnie and Clyde. She almost seems to be saying she knew they were going to ultimately get what they each deserved, death for death.

  6. Good vid, Jimbo. I would just "Amen" Kartman, and Anon at 7:42.

    The ACLU would break the bank trying to destroy the officers.

    Stuff like this reminds us that evil folks just didn't crop up recently. I think people have a tendency to view their generation as more evil than others. Truth is, every generation had more than its fair share of evil.

    They're still roasting.
