Yes, the relationship of Bonnie and Clyde has often been reported, and in some cases romanticized. However, I have to believe it is in the essence of the person to be taken by such stories of so-called romance. I’ve never seen a story of Bonnie and Clyde that didn’t make my skin crawl with their brand of chaos. It’s a sick person who comes away from that piece of history in favor of the duo.
I don’t believe defense is necessary on the part of law in their case, and am always surprised to see negative criticism of the media that brings their story to light. Without media, who would know such danger could be along the way. Without media, there are no lessons to be learned nor tales to be told (except by those with direct access to us).
Those who admire the killers are already on their paths. Pity those who don’t know them.
