Classic lynching story with a twist
30 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, we see a crude lynching involving two Indians deemed guilty by the citizens and a minister who tried to stop the lynch mob. All three were hung by a bunch of drunks who rushed the sheriff of the town, then when they became sober were ashamed of their actions and tried to hide it.

Unfortunately for these citizens, the minister was married to a young woman who was worried something had happened. Travis went to investigate.

It's a classic story of a lynch mob with a twist: this time they also kill a minis. The results are what would be expected and nothing more. Unfortunately there are more casualties before all is said and done - and not all the dead are bad guys.
