All politics might be local (as the saying goes), but there's always someone higher-up & outside the local scene when it comes to matters like these calling the shots...valid correlations can easily be found if people can be bothered to remember history properly & connect the dots!
i think ? thats just it, I think , you think......the days leading up to Carls killing , was a series of things including Beatings and shootings by Carl and his henchmans, pond creekers were fed up, including Blackie Harris, it was known that Blackie Had a dislike for the sheltons, some say a hatered. Blackie was though to be on Buster wortmans payroll, Buster had a lot to gain with Carl out of the way, as did all pond creek and its residents, sure the sheltons had a lot of friends there also.so it all came to a head when there was though to be a bounty on Carls head alone with Bernie, I Think it was a perfect time with Carl not being pertected, and that is a different subject..Why wasent Carl Pertected?? putting all this together. Carl was domed.That is what I think. do I know for sure?? hell no.all this thinking i have is what was printed and hear say, Proof??? i have none... Opinions are like rear ends everyone has one thats all
