November 1, 1932 was a sunny autumn day in the town of Sallisaw, Oklahoma, a quiet cotton farm, the heart of Sequoyah County. The dazzling afternoon sun illuminated them, but the heat was offset by the breeze. This is an ideal condition for Tuesday, a day that seems like a pedestrian in a week, but what happened at the Sallisaw State Bank is totally unusual. At first glance, it would seem as if a traveling carnival or local celebrity had come to town. Sidewalks of city banks and surrounding companies are full of local residents, family generations, young lovers, and a group of friends. Indeed, they have gathered to witness the spectacle, even though one of a kind is completely different. The Sallisaw Country Bank door swung open loudly, signaling the start of the show. Exit made a pair of staggering thieves, each carrying a bag of bills and coins and Colt, 45 which glittered. The cashiers inside the bank furiously writhed on the floor to voice their distress, stretch their necks and direct their muffled cries to the open door. One even managed to squirm out of his joke and call the help of the crowd across the street. Unfortunately, his cries were abolished, not by the cries of the spectators themselves, but by loud applause, coupled with shouts, whistles and constellations of waving handkerchiefs. Some of those who opened the way for the robbers' holiday cars were said to be customers who were present at the place during the stick itself. The group's leader, a handsome young man with square jaws, smoldering squint eyes, and black hair combed back with a scented pomade, acknowledged his admirers with a quick nod before looking down into a moving vehicle. According to local knowledge, some viewers were told about the previous robbery by the ringleader. So courageous that he was in his effort that he walked into the neighboring bank in the previous days and only asked the owner to refrain from calling the police, who they gladly agreed to. He even left those involved with enough time to get their deposits from the bank. While it's far from the biggest catch (thieves fled with $ 2,531.73, around $ 50,200 today), polite leaders are not the type to be locked without first leaving the literal token of the award. He dipped into the booty and threw several handfuls of coins out the window. The roads, they said, were very crowded with spectators who rushed to pick up coins so that a barricade was made between approaching police cars and vehicles that could escape, which eventually allowed the car to squeak around the corner and not be seen. Before their smooth escape, a small sack of paper money had also been set aside, in the words of the group leader, 'for school children. The heroic violin leader was hailed by many as the 'Robin Hood of Cookson Hills,' none other than Pretty Boy Floyd, a confusing, hated character like he was respected. For the FBI, Pretty Boy Floyd is a venomous and manipulative manipulative bastard who is considered an anti-hero with a heart of gold. A career bank robber allegedly linked to up to 40 bank robberies, his face will soon be emblazoned on the 1934 FBI Most Wanted poster with John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, and Alvin Karper. He was also involved in several murders, but admirers Pretty Boy Floyd were willing to ignore these crimes, with some even justifying his behavior and arguing that he was unfairly slandered for fighting an unjust system.
