It’s interesting how things have changed over the years.  Each week I send a free story about an event that happened during this time in the Old West.  This week’s story is about Sheriff Pat Garrett and how he died.

For those of you who may not be familiar with the circumstances, he was shot in the back while taking a “whizz”.  That’s right, a whizz.  I would say pee, but we want to keep this clean.

The man who confessed and was tried for doing it was Wayne Brazil.  What did he plead?  Self defense.  And he was declared not guilty.

 Don’t try this today folks.
