The good guys, the ones whom protected the women, children and citizens of Jackson. Every night throughout the summer, starting in June 1956, the Posse would drag Clover the Killer into Town Square in an attempt to hang him. Undoubtedly, Clover never felt the noose tighten around his neck. Either his thievin' friends would come ridin' with their six guns and steal Clover right out from underneath the Posse or the rope would break or somethin' would happen. This was the beginning of the Shootout Gang.
