Infamous Australian criminal, NED KELLY, was hanged for killing 3 policemen. How many did YOU think it was?

I honestly thought it was, like, 300!


If somebody said that he killed 300 Policemen, I wouldn't have challenged them. I have heard of him since my childhood. I think a LADYBIRD Reader I saw featured him (we're talking 40 years ago!)


Not to trivialize his heinous crimes, the IMPRESSION I had of him was that this guy was like... (trying to think of a comparable magnitude, here,) umm... BILLY THE KID. (Yes? Or am I wrong about HIM too?)


Like "WOLVERINE" of X-Men!


I was hearing a BBC News Article this morning (something to do with his family,) and they MENTIONED he was hanged for killing THREE Policemen.!


I was so *flabberwhelmed* and *overgasted,* that I totally forget what else they were talking about in the report.


Not to trivialize the horrible, tragic crime of murder, and the heroism of Law Enforcers today- if somebody "killed THREE cops" RECENTLY- that (*Bleep!*)ard would DIE IN OBSCURITY!!!


NO ONE would ever HEAR of his EXISTENCE! (After the Due Process.)


THIRTY Cops, even!


For instance, the Federal Agent who fired on THREE of Bill & Hillary Clinton's Secret Service bodyguards at WACO, TEXAS, on Feb. 28, 1993- all of whom DIED- AND IT'S ON TAPE- is COMPLETELY FORGOTTEN TODAY. (Those deaths were blamed on a Church, which was placed under siege and subsequently destroyed.)

Ned Kelly was defeated by an armed force consisting of 300 cops in one of the biggest battles Australia has ever seen on his shores, so there is that. But yeah, he only killed 3. Technically they only formally convicted him of one of them.

Incidentally, if someone in Australia today killed 3 cops, there would be a media frenzy- it is rare for police in Australia to be killed, and the death of a single officer in a botched raid gripped the headlines for months just a few years back.
