Chief Sheriff Oliver B. Stamp: [Stamp looks at the body of the dead boy] They scalped him alright. The savages!
Hec Ramsey, Deputy Sheriff: Hey, you know where Indians picked up that little trick, scalpin'?
Hec Ramsey, Deputy Sheriff: From the white man.
Chief Sheriff Oliver B. Stamp: I don't believe it.
Hec Ramsey, Deputy Sheriff: You don't wanna believe it. You ever hear of the Iroquois tribes back east, New England?
Hec Ramsey, Deputy Sheriff: Well, the very first settlers - the Puritans themselves - they put a bounty on those Indians. But it would've been a lot of trouble to bring in a whole Indian, so they found an easy way - just cut and jerk on the hair and ya get your bounty money.
