Don't run from the law! OUCH!!!

I bet this guy's head was aching after it hit that sidewalk.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Reminds me of the song "i fought the law, and the law won". Seeing this reminds me of a story I once heard. Before Potosi had a police force, it like many towns had a town marshal. He was an older man, a little overweight and reportedly liked his wine. He was very good with a revolver though, at least so I have been told. The story goes that one evening he brought a prisoner to the county jail for something, and the kid was crying and begging them not to lock him up. Finally Art said jokingly, "If you can make it to the creek down there (about 40 yards away) before I can shoot you I will let you go. The kid took him serious and started running. Art said something I will not print here, pulled out his .357, took a 2 hand stance and fired. The kid went head over heels down the hill. One of the Deputies that was there looked shocked and said "Art, he didn't do anything that bad!" Art replied "he ain't hurt". Art shoved the revolver back in it's holster and said "would you guys go get him, I am too old for this". When they got down to where the kid was Art had taken the heel off one of his cowboy boots, and the kid was laying there afraid to move. I did not see this happen, but it was told as the truth for years.
