Edward "Ned" Kelly, 6/11/1855 - 11/11/1880, considered to be merely a cold-blooded cop killer, others consider him to be a folk hero and symbol of Irish Australian resistance against the Anglo-Australian ruling class. After an incident at his home, police searched for him in the bush. After killing 3 policemen, the colony proclaimed Kelly a wanted outlaws. Kelly was captured on 6/28/1880, convicted of murder and hanged. This picture was taken the day before his execution.

Ned Kelly is thought of as either a villain or a hero, depending from what position you are coming. I admire his courage to stand up for what he believed in and to fight oppression and corrupt authority. Such is Life!
