Ok, I am going to try to explain this to you, I'm typing really, really slow so you can read it really, really slow, I was not responding to the same post to guess 1956 that please shut up directed to guess 1956. That was you. I was responding to your post. What you are asking people to believe is that Pusser or an accomplice shot Pauline, he either shot off half of his face himself or the accomplice shot it off for him all to cover up a murder. Any fool would of come with a better plan than that. As far as a cadallac hidden behind the church, Buford never said that there was a car hidden behind a church, never the less you say in your video that he did. That makes your time and motion study completely useless because you use a false premice from the beginning. You say that there were only two shell casings found at the bridge but other people say differently. Do you have an authentic photo of the shell casings found at the second site all in a neat little pile. Do you know of any semi automatic weapon that will disperse empty casings in such a manner. How do you know for certain that the casings were found in such manner, the photo you use in the video is not a photo of the actual casings left at the ambush site.

Open question, who will step forward and confirm that Lavon Plunk said that tere were problems in the marriage of the Pusser's? Will Lavon swear under oath and will the person who confirms this swear under oath?
" Many people believed that Pauline had no intention of returning from the vacation" Who are these many people, in fact who is just one of these people? Will they confirm this fact by being sworn under oath?
Who will step forward and swear under oath that they saw a gunman sitting 3 to 5 feet from Buford and miss shooting at him eleven out of 12 times? Who is this eyewitness? How do you know this when no one else is willing to take an oath before God that this happened? This is just the tip of the iceburg why open minded people do not believe anything other that some people are closed minded, not wanting an open and honest debate named Mike Elam. Mike, you have no eyewitness, no have no murder weapon, you have no ballastic evidence, you have no grand jury indictments, you have proved nothing. Did you get your Condo News delivered this morning? I saw nothing in the news written by Jerry Heacock or Cammy Wilson this morning, maybe they are slipping in their writting skills??

To ca96ms,
You two have the worst reading comprehension of anyone I have seen in a long time. Someone can post a comment or ask a question that is supportive of your position and you can't recognize it as such. You pay more attention to who post than what the message is, and if it is a new poster, well, of course it is Mike Elam posting under a new name. Guess 1956 accuses six people of being the same person, I have posted with three different names, got to go, like to no, and like to know. Saying that me and five other people are the same is just plain ignorance. And reading your post is like listening to a broke record, the same with Elam. It is liken to a tv talk show and everyone thinks that if they talk louder, longer, and over everyone else they are winning the conversation. This attitude does not enhance your arguements.
Why do you post under 3 different names? Not wanting to start an arguement, but why 3 names? I have been accused fro the almighty Elam of posting under many names when I have been proud to post only under one. Why 3, just asking??
PLEASE SHUT UP

"like to know", maybe you need to speak for yourself and not others. My post here are intended to bring certain response from certain people. ELAM ( or whatever his name is today ), puts himself in a position that intentionally brings folks into a discussion. That's fine. Don't have a problem with that except for the fact, his discussions are anti-Pusser. No way the late sheriff can get a fair shake here. Regardless of what happened years ago, nothing will change any of it by bashing Pusser. Opinions vary on the main topics of discussion here, as they normally would. Continually placing Pusser in a position to make viewers look at him as guilty is wrong. That was all decided years ago. What happened to Pauline, Louise, Towhead and several others? Who will ever know the complete truth? What happened to the shooter(s) at the ambush? These questions can only be answered by people that are long deceased. So, what's the point to steadily drag Pusser down. There's a personal connection. I'm just waiting on an email to confirm something and then I'll know what I already believe.
are you from McNairy Co. did you ever know Buford, his wife, or any of his children? i don't but i have family and friends who do, or did. and i don't want to start an arguement, but i still don't understand what you mean. if he is Vance, Bufords step-son, why would that be a problem? and if he is Louise's nephew, why would that be a problem?
and if he is Elam, then where is the problem there? i just don't know where you are going with this, as i am sure others who have been just reading, like me, are wondering the same thing.

i meant to only ask you about living in McNairy Co. well i am from the area, always have been. i can tell you that Buford was no hero! the only ones who believe that he was, are out of towners who saw the movie, and believed what they saw, even though at the begining of the movie, it clearly states that it is fiction. no one can prove he DID or DIDN'T kill Pauline, there are some who DO know the truth. they didn't speak up back then for fear, and won't speak now....why wake a sleeping dog?

To ca96ms, what other people have I been speaking for? It seems that my comments don't come up the obvious superior intellictual level of you and your buddy guess 1956, so they are of no value to you. I will refrain from any more comments on this subject and leave you two to display your far superior knowledge and communication skills on this subject.

I'm looking for people who actually knew Buford Pusser personally. I am researching his history and have heard stories both good and bad about the former sheriff. I'm just trying to learn the truth about the legendary sheriff. My trips to McNairy County have been interesting to say the least as opinions seem to vary greatly on the man. So what is the truth?
i have an old old friend who is dead now and he use to run moonshine for a living his name was prentis copus and he lived on matt daimon road he had allways told me that he paid buford off to leave his buisness alone and i believe that he had no reason to lie he was a real good man and friend and i also heard from the lips of a relative of paul ervin that paul had a hand in telling the story of buford when they were making the movie he laeft a lot of stuff out that would make buford look like a everyday thug and he also shot paul david english in the back when he tryed to escape mcnairy county jail and if you ask arround michie and talk to these old folks they will tell you that alot of moonshiners had paid him to leave them alone personaly saying that buford was a good man is like saying hittler was a saint

Well, after reading this, at least one thing is solved. It appears that the state trooper shot Paul David English. Read this post carefully. it was either the state trooper or either his altar ego, hittler. Now this hittler could be a person of interest but maybe not since he was a saint!! hahahaha

I did list six names, you just admitted that you are 3 out of the six. Now, that means that you and 5 other people are not the same person, since you are one half of the six. Who is showing their ignorance, Mike, you sly roadrunning, twisty with the facts, don't want to know, doesn' t know devil. Why don't you just SHUT UP? HAHAHAH

I also interviewed Paul David English before he passed away from lung cancer. Paul told stories both good and bad about Pusser. He told of a kind act where Pusser took him from the jail to see his mom on Christmas day and spent the entire day with Paul's family instead of his own. Paul also told how that Buford allowed him to operate a moonshine still after he was shot by Buford. I guess that might have been Buford's way of dealing with his own guilt.
English said Buford told him how much he could produce, who he could sell to, how much he could charge, even where he should by the worm (coil) for the still as well as where to buy the sugar. English said it was almost as if Pusser was management while he played the role of labor. He also said Peatie Plunk and /or Burkes would come by every week or so to make sure that he was playing by Buford's rules.
Art Murphy didn't feel that Buford had to shoot English after the jail escape. Pusser had claimed that English had fired on him first, a story English denied. Ironically, I have a link posted (newspaper article) on crimemyths where Pusser told Helen Pusser that he had shot his own car. Who knows what to believe here.
Art Murphy was right, Buford did not have to shoot Paul David English. The reason why,according to one of your friendly posters, it was a person named hittler that shot Engish, or was it the state trooper? It could have been either, although hittler was a saint from what I read. Once again, you have been proved wrong by your own sources, kinda like the Condo News and Cammy Wilson!! HAHAHAHA

Ok "Mikey", lets see what the next chapter holds for everybody. We're putting the ball in your court now. See if you can't entice us all with something new and fresh. Don't want to hear about the Plantation Club, Louise, Pauline, Buford or anyone that has already been dragged through the s--- here. Why don't you tell us about the children now. Mike, Diane and Dwana. Fill us all in on the kids, Mike & Diane's real dad and maybe the grandparents and other relatives. Tell folks something that most don't know about here. Don't drag any of them through the s---, just tell us all what your research(?) has determined.
Diane passed back in July, her kids are still in west TN. last i heard, Mike was in MO. and we all know where Dwana is.....Again i ask you...are you from, or have you ever lived in McNairy Co.?

Its pretty clear to me that ca96ms and this mike guy are the samo person. This is just a way of keeping an arguement going to provide entertainment for himself. Just think he knows all the arguments on both sides he uses this to draw unsuspecting people in to the discussion and laffs his ass off all the while. If people would just ignore him this subject would just go away. Its a pretty good strategry, it seems to be working just fine, so long and good bye.

I'm not sure what Paul Erwin really knew first hand regarding Pussers tenure as sheriff. I spoke with Paul this past summer and he told me that he was assigned to work McNairy County three days after Buford left office. I'm sure he probably heard some stories, but I'm sure what he could have witnessed first hand since he was not there when Pusser was sheriff. Erwin would probably have been uncomfortable sharing things heard as opposed to things he had witnessed. The movie producers planned to make Buford a hero one way or another. Had Erwin or anyone else reported something negative, I doubt that we would have seen it in the movie.
As far as the moonshiners, yes, many claim they paid Pusser to operate just as club and joint operators claim they had to pay.
but paul ervin was a deptuty when bufford was the sherif but your right about the producers and paul would never slander his name anyways
