    Yes and no, I’m only going to say I would be a lot worse. Cutting your young sons heads off and placing them on your fence. I would have a hard time controlling my behavior at that point. My tactics would be called barbaric......

    That's why you're not supposed to salute officers in combat. We had a guy who insisted we salute him anyway. We did so gladly.

    I do not believe Josey Wales was an actual person and lot of what was done relative to technique did not strike me as realistic, but I have not seen that film in a long time and could be wrong. The southern mountains in places that still have forests are still a good place to hide. That abortion clinic bomber hid out for quite a while before he got caught somewhere IIRC in the Carolina mountains.

    That was Eric Rudolf who also touched one off at the
    Olympics in Atlanta.

    A good friend of mine was the LEO that caught him.

    IIRC it was routine patrol that found him rummaging through a dumpster for food.

    edit to add:
    Rudolph was arrested in Murphy, North Carolina, on May 31, 2003, by rookie police officer Jeffrey Scott Postell of the Murphy Police Department while Rudolph was looking through a dumpster behind a Save-A-Lot store at about 4 a.m.; Postell, on routine patrol, had initially suspected a burglary in progress.[17]
    Rudolph was unarmed and did not resist arrest. When arrested, he was clean-shaven with a trimmed mustache, had dyed black hair and wore a camouflage jacket, work clothes, and new sneakers.

    As you can see by my handle, Captain Jack is my personal hero. There aren't many nights that I fall asleep without reflecting on his life. When I was a child I was taught to pray and reflect on the life of one of the saints before falling asleep; Jack Hinson didn't appear in the approved list of Christian saints. Evidently I've made some edits to the list. Stay strong
