UMKC School of Law

I direct Your Honor's attention to page 126:

"But he thinks an escape could be managed by spending a few thousand dollars by bribing the guards of the jail and by someone giving him a gun. He says that without any swagger, as though it were only a matter of careful detailed planning which his mind can do. He has not made plans as to where he should go should he escape."

What a feeling of comfort and security mothers and fathers of this town would have, with their children going back and forth upon the streets of Chicago to school and these two mad dogs at large. My God, every mother and every father would shudder and they would want to lock their children in the house until they knew that the mad dogs had been captured or killed.
