These men tried to hang me. They have been killed for it.

Who did the killing?

Vengeance is mine sayeth, the Lord!



Judge Roy Bean:

Tector Crites (Jackson gang:
[voice-over] There is nothing worse than a harlot turned respectable. A reformed anything is bad enough, but a reformed harlot is the direct wrath of the Devil. Seems that those who have spent time giving pleasure for profit are all the more zealous when it comes to dealing out misery.
