Browning vs. Bonnie and Clyde: two loneliness just met ...
Bonnie and Clyde. Still from the 2013 film.


Did you read history Jesse James
about how he lived and died.
But if you want;
something else to read,
then here's the story of Bonnie and Clyde.
(Poems by Bonnie Parker)

Weapon and firms. Last time we got acquainted with the original John Browning M8 rifle and today we will continue our story, but ... before we talk about the M8 itself, we will have to turn to the story of two people who were directly associated with this particular weapon. It's about the legendary Bonnie and Clyde. Everyone in the USA knows who they are. It's like everyone in England knows about Robin Hood. And, let us note that there is something in common between them, it is not for nothing that the attitude towards them was and remains completely ambiguous. Although that they are both criminals - no one doubts.


Bonnie and Clyde in front of their car ...

So, let's start with the fact that Clyde Barrow (that was his last name, although he is better known by name) was first arrested at the end of 1926, and, in general, because of a trifle: he did not return the rented car on time ... Then, along with his brother Marvin "Buck", Clyde was caught stealing turkeys. Moreover, he had a job, was not unemployed, and nevertheless, from 1927 to 1929, he opened safes, robbed shops, and stole cars. Such was the youth sociopath. He liked to "shove" against society and not be like everyone else ... He was born in a poor farm family, where besides him there were six more children. So, not in all large families, children grow up to be hardworking and positive, and often vice versa. Although there are many examples of the opposite.

Accordingly, he was arrested in both 1928 and 1929, but he did not end up in Eastham prison in Texas until April 1930. And there, while serving his sentence, he killed another prisoner. However, the humanity of American justice was such that in 1932 he was released early for good behavior. However, the prison did not make him better. Everyone who knew him testifies that after her he only got worse ...

How did Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow meet each other? The most reliable version (and there are several of them) is the one according to which Bonnie and Clyde met at her friend's house in January 1930. Interestingly, she was only 150 cm tall, and weighed 44 kg and had a fragile physique! By the way, Clyde himself was not tall. His height was only 162 cm.

She studied well at school. Teachers noted her rich imagination and acting talents. She also wrote poetry and kept a diary, to which she confessed her loneliness. This is probably why she jumped out very early to marry (at the age of 16) and also ... to a hooligan boy, with whom she broke up a year later. She worked as a waitress in a cafe, and this is a completely unenviable fate for such a girl.

They say that Bonnie and Clyde immediately liked each other. And it is believed that she was in love with him. But is it really so, no one knows for sure. But on the other hand, she was a faithful companion to him all the time they were together, and, like Romeo and Juliet, they died on the same day, and even more so - at the same minute. However, they perfectly understood which path they had taken, and what awaited them at the end of it. No wonder she wrote the following verses:

And if sometime
will have to die
To lie to us, of course
in the grave alone.
And the mother will cry
and the bastards laugh.
For Bonnie and Clyde
there will be peace.
In addition to them, WD Jones, a friend of the Barrow family since childhood, went along the same slippery slope. And although he was only 16 years old, he nevertheless somehow persuaded Bonnie and Clyde to take him with them and the very next day of their trip together he committed his first murder: together with Clyde, they killed the owner of the car in order to steal it. And on January 6, 1933, it was now Clyde who shot the sheriff, who was trying to detain them.


Sixteen-year-old WD Jones committed two murders in the first two weeks after joining Clyde Barrow in 1933!

Very soon the gang was covered, but, firing back from the police, the "Barrow gang" managed to get away. But where they lived, they found many of their photographs (Bonnie loved to be photographed!), Which were immediately sent to neighboring states.

It's funny, but Bonnie and Clyde were also involved in ... kidnapping, and not just people. From 1932 to 1934, they kidnapped five ... police officers. And they did not kill them, but let them go, although far from home. And even money was sometimes given to them so that they had something to return back to. You can imagine how frightened they were!


Bonnie Parker posing with a revolver and a cigar in her mouth, April 1933. She loved such show-offs ...

In August 1933, they raided an ammunition store in Illinois, where they obtained ... Browning automatic rifles, pistols and a lot of ammunition. Bonnie, as it turned out, was also very fond of shooting and, in addition, being photographed with a weapon in her hands.

Clyde, apparently, did not like Eastham prison very much, and he decided ... to arrange a raid on it and free his comrades who remained there. Now he has such an opportunity. And on January 16, 1934, he carried out an attack on the prison. At the same time, several criminals escaped from her at once, which caused a sharp outrage from the public, but Clyde took revenge on the Texas Department of Corrections, so hated by him.

And five days later, they also killed two patrolmen and a 60-year-old constable on the road and kidnapped Police Chief Percy Boyd. Together they crossed the Kansas border with him, and then freed him in a clean shirt and gave him a few dollars. At the same time, Bonnie asked him to tell everyone that she does not smoke cigars, and only smokes Camel cigarettes!


Bonnie at the Ford V8

These crimes overwhelmed the patience of the police: the chief of patrolmen L. G. Fairs announced a reward of $ 1000 for their ... corpses; it was for the corpses, and not for the capture, that is, carte blanche was officially issued for the murder of Bonnie and Clyde!


"Wanted!" Police poster with Bonnie and Clyde

As a result, Bonnie and Clyde were ambushed on a country road in Bienville, Louisiana and were killed on May 23, 1934: the "Ford V8" in which they were moving, shot four Texas Rangers and two other officers of the local Louisiana police. Then they calculated that 167 bullets had perforated the car, with 110 hitting Bonnie and Clyde. The first got about 60, the second - about 50.


Shot by "Ford" with the bodies of Bonnie and Clyde inside

It turned out to be not so difficult to calculate the paths of movement of the "Barrow gang". Having already figured out their intended route, Haymer mapped out the ambush site.

Ted Hinton later admitted in an interview with reporters:

“It's a pity that I killed the girl. I liked her so much ... "


A riddled Ford ...

Both Bonnie and Clyde have repeatedly expressed a desire to be buried together, but Bonnie's family has secured her burial at Fishtrap Cemetery in Dallas. In 1945, her remains were reburied at Crown Hill Memorial Park. Different numbers of those present at her funeral in Dallas are named: from 20 to 50 thousand. An epitaph was made on the girl's gravestone, compiled by her mother:

"As from the dew and in the sunshine, only flowers are more beautiful, so this world, the old world, is brighter - by the rays of people like you."

Clyde was buried in Western Heights Cemetery, in the same Dallas, next to his brother Marvin. And, note that his funeral gathered 15 people, which is also a lot.

Interestingly, both Bonnie and Clyde were insured, and the insurance premiums for their deaths were paid to their families in full. So it was then! But then it was decided that if the insured died as a result of a crime committed by him, then his insurance will be canceled.


Bonnie and Clyde's arsenal found inside the Ford ...

And now the answer to the question about the reasons for their popularity, or, let's say, several versions to choose from. Let's see: John Dillinger had the appearance of a female pet, "Handsome Floyd" was also "handsome", had a pretty appearance. But were they as popular as outwardly quite ordinary Bonnie and Clyde? Well, yes, they made love outside of marriage and shot people. Yes, they were young, so what? Have you plundered a lot? No ... Have they killed many? Well, yes, it really is: 15 people, and the fact that Bonnie committed the murder was not proven! But her, frankly, impudent photographs gave her, and her "comrade" fame much greater than what they would deserve with newspaper reports about their small thefts and completely unnecessary murders. They created a visible image of a girl who rose above society and is not afraid to show herself as such. In the end, many people, including women, would like to become Rodion Raskolnikov in their souls, but their imagination is poor to represent someone in this role. And here ... here she is, Bonnie, in Clyde's arms, and both of them are free as the wind!


He literally wore it in his arms! Bonnie and Clyde in March 1933. US Library of Congress (like all other photographs)

Well, in reality, the death penalty was provided to Clyde after the first murder on his bandit path. And then, when he killed about 14 people and, in addition, robbed several dozen more banks and shops, what could he count on? And all this plus the visualized image of this couple in love - which was reflected in the souls of ordinary Americans, exhausted by the Great Depression and dreamed of only one thing - freedom from caring for a simple piece of ordinary daily bread ...

              Actually, I haven't read Robin Hood's "criminal case". I only know from literature.
              PS. Somewhere there was information that the county court, in 198 (?), Dropped the charges against Robin Hood. All charges are the machinations of the sheriff

            That's the question: a big scum (I personally think so, I know such people since those 90s) or like "Robin Hoods", which is doubtful.

          They took it off the tongue. Even in our cinema this concept is cultivated.
          And the cinema itself quite often refers to this "sweet couple". Recently I watched not a bad Hollywood movie, however, about a detective who was looking for them and, in the end, finished them off.

                  "Ford V8"

                  Hello everyone. Don't you think that the "Ford" in the "shot photo" painfully resembles the GAZ-M1? Although, in principle, the "emka" was also a Ford development, and of the same years. I think these cars have a lot in common.

        Hello!
        The popularization of those events is partly associated with youthful maximalism and the imaginary struggle for "justice". At the level of the "sandbox" Vaska has a scoop, I do not. Then get a "brother" in your ear.
        So it is here. Part of the society will be “happy” in their souls that the vile pharaohs have gotten into the “snout”, someone will feel sorry for the ruined youth and love, and others will cut political dividends on the scandal.
        The question is, who authorized the "utyrkov" to decide who will live and who will not.
        God, conscience or their own wishlist to live well without doing anything. However, we also have a similar phenomenon today. Moreover, in two incarnations, some are ready for "barricades" for a new life and Navalny, others are crying about the old life and Stalin.
        The most curious thing is that both "groups" have only one idea - "take everything and share" !!!
        However, if to the article - these are the notorious 15000 who came to Clyde's funeral. There are almost twice as many romantics. There are only a few who really won on this story.
        Well, and the last answer, or rather the assumption for the Author "why this article?"
        An instructive story, gorgeous photos of cars and weapons, and a little about love !!! As stated by Vyacheslav Olegovich, this is the most for morning reading on a weekend, or rather a "non-working" day !!!
        I'm going to storm the "fence" at nine - the welder will come !!! I wish everyone such "inglorious" victories in gardens, gardens and apartments !!! They are much more honest than 15 ruined souls and a dozen photographs.
        Sincerely yours, Your Cat!

          Mary Barrow, Clyde's sister, later recalled: "Something terrible must have happened to him in prison, because he was never the same again." The prankster and the bully turned into a sullen, embittered person who hates the whole world around him. As those who sat in Eastham with Clyde later said, from a handsome schoolboy he became a "rattlesnake."
          Some biographers of the criminal couple, referring to the testimony of Dan Ruskin, who served at the same time with Clyde, believe that the reason was that Clyde became a victim of sexual violence in prison. The young man liked one of the prisoners, who raped him several times. As a result, Clyde strangled his abuser with a pillow at night, which, for obvious reasons, did not entail additional punishment, and in 1932 he was released.

              In Israel, we do not fire in bursts with either a PP or an assault rifle. Accuracy is quite normal, for battles in urban areas (security) up to 100 m (in fact, up to 50) is a normal thing, and at distances from 20 m more precisely than a pistol, definitely. laughing In the format of the work on which I had an ultrasound scan, there was also a pistol, by the way))

And the courage of Angelica, who became the marquise of the "angels". It looks like ghettos that are dangerous for the police are a tradition in Paris. Only the population of the ghetto has radically changed since that time. Previously, local dregs lived there, now they are newcomers.

            Moreover, the area where the ghetto was located until the middle of the 19th century had the character of a strictly delineated habitat. The current ghettos of Paris are districts that have the appearance of decent architecture with obscene content, including street stalls in the middle of the boulevards and drug trafficking. But not only. There are also all sorts of multi-storey unfinished buildings - there are such things in Paris, as well as abandoned buildings. And God forbid, this will be found here. But it seems that already on the outskirts of Moscow it is gradually taking shape. The owners of the floors rent apartments to Asians.

            The authorities do not care about all this, the country is already thoroughly corrupt, and it is necessary to start from the top, then there will be order at the lower level. And if everything is as it is, then a new turmoil can not be avoided, and similar events in a country with a nuclear potential, this is a global catastrophe, which we miraculously avoided in the nineties.

            We, without realizing it, are already living in a completely different country, but the desire to adjust it to the old one, or if not the old one, then at least to some decent one, constantly torments us.
            Here I have a frying pan. Despite the fact that I do not fry so much, it has lost its properties in a year - such is the current dish. Probably, there is a way to restore it - it, this particular instance. But how much will a custom repair cost? It's easier to buy a new one. It seems that now all countries, some faster, others slower, are becoming disposable and will gradually reformat. No government wants to work on meticulously improving what it has. At best, they sluggishly preserve what they have, and more predatory neighbors look at them as material for their own reformatting.

            Kostya, in my opinion, is because man, as a young biological species, has not yet learned to live in harmony with himself. The more ancient a species, the less it is inclined to devour fellow tribesmen and the more inclined to limit the redundancy of its needs. As soon as some old country creates a comfortable living, a primitive subspecies is pulled up, unable to independently create something like that, and a situation arises for a long and painful settling down, leading to a decrease in the general level either by war or by migration. Other cases are also possible. Mixing races and peoples is a search for a food base that does not involve voluntary distribution to niches. So I open Yandex every day - the war has begun or not yet.

    I was interested in something else, "Browning" - of course, you can't confuse it with anything else, but in two photographs there is one very curious rifle.
    This is the Krag-Jørgensen - a magazine rifle, developed by the Norwegian designers Ole Hermann Johannes Kragruen and Eric Jørgensen, at one time was in service with the American army under the designation M1892 Rifle (US Magazine Rifle, Model 1892), but long before the "adventures" of this couple it was removed from service.

    In the article in the photo, she is in the carbine version

    And what kind of second barrel he has is difficult to understand, most likely some kind of "pump" - a pump.

    "Good girls love bad guys" .... "Bitches attract good boys for some reason ..."! Alas! Such "hackneyed", "banal" phrases have taken root in a "decent" society for a long time and have lived in it for centuries! But we would not be "we" if we did not ask the eternal favorite questions in our society: "Who is to blame? And What to do about it?" so they attract all sorts of shushara ... gain a lot of likes and occupy the top "shelves" of popularity? Why do the chelas hastily grab onto their cell phones not to call the police, ambulance, fire brigade; and to capture a suicide on the roof, people rushing about in burning rooms, engulfed in fire, the bodies of dying or killed in a car accident ...? And it is useless to remind them of morality and accuse them of immorality! Remember the films where a maniac killer shows the execution of a person on social networks on-line and says that the “observers” themselves can execute or spare the victim? And the "observers" (considered respectable citizens ...) "sentence" the victim to death! If you really recreate a similar situation, then there is a very high probability that in reality, "online onlookers" will "execute" rather than save the victim! And what ideology can correct this "certain" part of humanity, which may turn out to be very significant? Neither the communist ideology, nor the Christian religion or Islam could cope with this task ...

      I'm glad you all liked it. Well, the article precedes the article about the "Browning police rifle". Agree that it would be stupid in its description to be limited to the phrase, "and Bonnie and Clyde were also killed from it." They would have written to me right away that "more is needed about this." But that would be later, and in this case, the story about them precedes the story of the M8 and M81 rifles in the police version.

                If in the kitchen, something falls: a fork or a spoon - to the guests. With a knife it is more difficult: from a banal skirmish, such as: "he is like that" to a massacre.
                I heard this from the old people.
                The most original thing is that I understood how many spoon or fork, but did not coincide with the guests. Almost always with a knife. True, without the massacre, perhaps it is necessary to drop it differently?

    "her ashes were reburied in the memorial park" of a colleague, for me the American tradition is a dark forest. Who knows, tell us: is it worse or better to bury in the park? For me it is understandable when they transfer from one cemetery to another, but I don’t know in the park. Once, about four years ago, there was an interview on TV with former American executioners, he walked and showed the graves he had executed. It seemed to me that this was not a cemetery. Perhaps criminals are buried like that?

And at some point, internal sensations tell the deer: that's it, stop resistance and you will die quickly, they will simply bite your throat professionally, it does not hurt very much, you will soon bleed to death and quietly fall asleep. It's good that this couple at least were not sadists, relishing someone else's slow death while aggravating it. In general, it was not for coffee yesterday, but today - for some reason quite itself. This is how the subconscious works! wassat

      Lyudmila Yakovlevna, good morning. "The attitude was different" I doubt: in fact, Clyde is an ordinary raider, and Boney attracted attention to him with her spectacular photographs. Passionate personalities always attract attention

        You read the article for sure? Yes, and it's not a sin to go online, and ask what this * sweet couple * was.

          We have known each other for a long time, probably noticed that I am curious.
          Now we looked at Vika. It also says that without Boney, he is zero without a wand. An ordinary bandit.

    Thanks for the article, Vyacheslav Olegovich.
    To be honest. Very embarrassing interest in Protestants named after brutal violence.
    What was, was.
    The couple maintained their right to food and a couple of other benefits at the expense of others, without weapons and ammunition.
    Ho!
    Perhaps this is also the capacitive content of success.
    No need to look for exits!
    Kill your neighbor ... And him (your neighbor), your resource ... Day of the Triffids, Bro!

    "she was 150 cm tall" so small, and what energy she has!
    I do not know what pushed Clyde to the road of crime, and I will try to explain Boney from the point of view of psychologists.
    There was probably a spirit of protest in her. She did not like the bourgeois everyday life and social life, but should she change it? She marries the offender out of protest: ah, he is not pleasant to you? In this case, I will marry him! Then she quickly became disillusioned with him.
    In other conditions, she could become an ideological revolutionaries, but she became a raider.
    Why are they so popular?
    1) pasianar personalities are always attracted
    2) if it were not for Bonnie, they did not pay attention to Clyde, and so her spectacular photographs attracted the attention of ordinary people
    P.
    S
    I read somewhere that their naked bodies were put on public display. Naturally, most of the onlookers stared at Boney

      Somewhere I read about the same thing. English only. Obviously, this is the case if the same thing is written on both sides of the ocean.

        I am interested in the following question: at the beginning of the 30s, puritanical attitudes prevailed in society and put on public display, the naked body of a dead girl, how does it fit together?

        Sergei, you carefully read my dialogue with Vyacheslav Olegovich: "I read about the same thing. Only in English" it turns out that Vyacheslav Olegovich read "Speed: -info" too, but in English.

    But seriously speaking, Boney and Clyde, with their famous murderous "campaign", brought to life the secret desires of a significant part of the poor and not very well-fed population. Who of that population did not mentally wish the death of the bloodsucker-banker? Or at least "Yes, to be robbed!" Or the greedy shopkeeper constantly raising prices when the economic crisis rages on the street and everyone will lose their jobs.
    But the civilian population without leaders is not capable of such actions from the understanding that this will only aggravate the already not brilliant position of the family.
    Boney and Clyde are the phenomenon of the realization of the secret vicious desires of a large mass of people - desires that are both shameful and dangerous to admit. And since there is always such a mass of people, Boney and Clyde are immortal. And in the future they will be the subject of research by means of cinematography.

        Thank you for assessing my humble opinion, Vyacheslav Olegovich! )))
        Yes, the phenomenon of Boney and Clyde in the realities of America is more social-criminal than just criminal. Hence, such gigantic crowds at the funeral, Abkhazia was surpassed.
        There, too, there were such crowds: they would shoot some freak on a sentence for a terrible crime, they would be buried in an unknown place, the corpse would not be handed over to relatives. So the clothes were put up for mourning. And try one of your relatives and friends not to come to the ritual. The next time the relying part of society will not come to you or your closest relatives, everyone remembers everything, this is an important part of the life of a tribal society. And since all relatives of each other are in some kind of tribe and everyone knows each other, then there are thousands of crowds.

    Yes, we also had our own Robin Hoods in Mongolia, but not such, but real ones. In the 18-19 centuries, they robbed the rich and princes, took away cattle and horses and gave them to the poor, and also robbed Chinese merchants, burned their books, where all the debts of ordinary peoples are noted, as well as the debts of princes and rich, which ordinary people were obliged to pay for them.
