I was reading some history of Western Kentucky, when it was really the frontier, when the Ohio’s banks held out-laws who preyed on the poor creatures coming down the river on flatboats. The history said that the worst outlaws were the Harpe brothers, whose family had been Tories, and who felt ostracized by others. They used this excuse to kill men, women and children in order to get even. I guess that is one way to handle it when you are shunned by others. Thank God others merely suffer inside.
