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 Vermont Desperado Episode 386 tells the epic story of one of New England’s most persistent scoundrels. It’s the kind of story I delight in finding, that in another context would make a great Elmore Leonard or Carl Hiaasen novel, this one about a slippery but dim-witted thief, that would almost be comic if there wasn’t a tragic loss of life in Act II, and even when he gets his come-uppance in Act III, there’s still a couple of strange twists in the tale. No spoilers, but let’s just say #botchedexecution. Culled from the historic pages of the Brattleboro Reformer, the Burlington Free Press, the Rutland Weekly Herald, and other newspapers of the era. *** Binge on your favorite shows from around the world, not just your country, with Express VPN, and get three months free by signing up at www.expressvpn.com/TCH Sign up for The Great Courses Plus and receive your first month free at the special True Crime Historian landing page: http://thegreatcoursesplus.com/TCH Download Best Fiends for your device and join me in a fanciful quest in this challenging and cheerful puzzle game. *** A creation Of Pulpular Media Also from Pulpular Media: Portals to Possibility, an improvised comedy about an alternate reality, where monsters are real--and hilarious!!!
