The well-known criminals Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow traveled the Central  
U.S.with their gang the “Barrow Gang” during the Great Depression. The gang is believed to have killed at least nine police officers and committed several civilian murders. The couple themselves were eventually ambushed and killed on a rural
road in Louisiana by law officers. Their exploits became a major part of American
pop folklore with the
1967 film Bonnie and Clyde, starring Warren Beatty and Faye
Dunaway.

    as much as i hate violence and this turns my stomach, it was quite a ride for these two wild folks (and others).

    I think it was overkill. They didn’t have to be shot numerous times, it was too vicious.
