Great Show for a Criminal
20 June 2009 | by (Granbury, Texas) – See all my reviews

I find it crazy that Hollywood would put out a top notch series that makes a hero out of a cold blooded killer (he admitted to killing 31 people) who was executed in Giddings, TX. Just do a search of "Wild Bill" Longley and learn the truth. You will learn how he was responsible for 31 killings, mostly those of blacks and Mexicans. While it's true he was exceptionally fast and, by some accounts, was the first real gunfighter of the old west, he was nothing more than a murderer. Not someone to be looked up to, but more to be feared and loathed. I'll never understand why Hollywood continues to take these hard blooded killers and make them into heroes.
