Rich, I am just surfing tonight and came across this old post. My Father was there that afternoon. My Mother and I found out about the shooting before my Father returned home when my sister in CA called (long distance at the time). She had heard it on national news. It has been many years and I was 12 at the time, but it is something I will never forget. As I remember it my father, Ewell Melvin was Jerry’s partner that day. It was at the end of their shift they had arrested a “drunk” my father called him and were writing the paper work up when Art told them to go home. Art then, as I was told, pulled his service revolver waving it back and forth saying “-----, I said go home”. Mc Daniel and Patrolman Lusk, who was working as dispatcher, jumped into the elevator behind the dispatcher’s desk. Lt. Inmann and Patrolman Melvin took cover in front of the dispatcher’s desk. Everyone now had their weapons drawn. Murphy fires a single shot hitting the opened end of the elevator door, which can still be seen today. Mc Daniel, right handed, placed his weapon in his left hand reaching outside the elevator door around the front wall firing to his right one blind shot striking murphy in the chest. I have a general memory there was another officer present taking refuge in the policeman lounge. These five men were no more than 15 to 20 feet apart.
That is the best account of the shooting that I have heard to date.

You and Big D ("D" for dumb if you look at that last "post") are putting out total h'sh!t. Ought to be ashamed of yourself. He's on board with you moronic movie obsession, so i guess you back that drivel he put out above. heck, it's probably you with fake grammatical errors. I guess someone could be that illiterate and be able to read. he sounds like a good 'un for the conspiracy crowd.(Elam and 15 akas: does that make a crowd?)

Let's Just say that I very close to Betty Sparks and I was around the Anchor Club.. Betty had great respect for Buford Pusser. I don't know where Skeet Adkin's got that Betty paid Buford 500.00. I can tell you even tho Betty was Skeet's sister n law...they did not get along that great..Yes the Anchor club stayed open after hours and did sell beer on sundays... but I can tell you Buford never kept and money if any was given to him from the Anchor Club.
How do you know he didn't keep money??

First of all Joe, I am not a "wanna be cop" I'm a "already was cop". You need to get your facts straight.

For your information, I am writing a book regarding the REAL STORY of Buford Pusser and the state line. If you had the balls to to to McNairy County to interview some of the real players in that story, you might just understand just how full of crap that "WALKING TALL" was.

For one thing, when you examine the autopsy report filed on Louise Hathcock you will see that she was shot twice in the back by Sheriff Pusser before she was shot in the head as she lay on the floor. From what people who were there have said, it was not a case of self defense.

As for the alleged ambush, even Pauline's best friend Lavon Plunk, wife of Deputy Peatie Plunk, told me in an interview that Pauline was leaving Buford and planned to report his corruption to the FBI and TBI. Lavon was the last person to see her alive, approximately two hours before she (Pauline) was killed.

On top of that I have interviewed several people including Club owners, moonshiners and bootleggers that report that Pusser not only accepted, but demanded payoffs. Even Sheriff Grady Bingham of neighboring Alcorn County MS said Pusser was a "thug". Sheriff Clifford Coleman was not even that kind.

What I am trying to say loud mouth, is that you "Talk Tall", but you certainly don't walk the walk. Had you done a little research before you shot your big mouth off in that last post (no pun intended) I would not have cut you down to your real size so quickly.

Mike
