Rebel or Robin Hood? Everyone who came in contact with the Kid, either friend, foe or a reporter, all agree that the Kid had an easygoing personality, a wonderful sense of humor, and was always in good spirits, despite any situation, whether it be bad or good. Researched accounts show he only killed in self-defense (that tally amounts to 3), and while escaping his own hanging. He never saw his 21st birthday. This video is posted November 23, 2015, the 156th anniversary of his birth.
