Dick Turpin

PISTOL-PACKING MASKED MARAUDER who demanded “your money or your life” decision-making from coach-bound rich folk. Summary justice dished out to heroic outlaw on a regular basis, including being tied to burning wheel, hanging, disemboweling. Somehow the blaggard always survived, perhaps to do with the blaggard in question being RICHARD “MAN ABOUT ROBIN’S NEST” O’SULLIVAN.
