AN EYE FOR AN EYE -- A special edition of Yesterday’s News exploring the criminal justice system at its most extreme: Inflicting the Death Penalty...
The Slippery Scoundrel Gerald Chapman
Episode 384 tells the story of a so-called gentleman thief who fearlessly went for the big scores, even while the object of a nation-wide man-hunt. This is another action-packed episode loaded with gunfights, jailbreaks, courtroom breakdowns, and all kinds of shenanigans. Act III starts with a rather odd, melodramatic feature story published while this creep was waiting for the hangman.
Culled from the historic pages of the Atlanta Constitution, the Hartford Courant, and various New York newspapers of the era.
