Clerks and store owners are routinely killed because of a small amount of cash, a gang initiation, or for the pure thrill of it.
When the residents of Coffeyville, Kansas stood up to the Dalton Gang, four of them died. They also killed four of the five-member gang, and wounded the fifth who was then imprisoned. On that day in 1892 the Dalton Gang ceased to exist.
Today, Coffeyville not only has a museum dedicated to the four men, but holds an annual celebration and rodeo. The people still value and respect the men who made the greatest sacrifice standing up for what was right.
We either stand up to criminals or live on our knees before them in fear. Your choice.
