Standing than five feet tall and never weighing more than 95 pounds, Bonnie Parker was a malicious animal with a taste for blood; from the time she was old enough to inflict damage on another human being. When she was ten years old, Bonnie exchanged insults with a boy named Noel. Noel had the good sense to walk away from the confrontation.
But Bonnie followed him into a drug store and proceeded to beat the crap out of him. Her cousin, Bess, was with Bonnie, but she was power to prevent her cousin’s vicious attack. Bess later said, “When a passing neighborhood woman separated them, Bonnie had a razor blade in her hand and was threatening to cut Noel’s throat, if he ever made her mad again.” When she was just days short of her sixteenth birthday, Bonnie married a hardened gangster named Roy Thornton. With Thornton frequently being in and out of jail, and also possessing a roving eye for other women, Bonnie soon gave up on their marriage. Although she never divorced Thornton, months after her nineteenth birthday, Bonnie hooked up with a short, skinny, pimple-faced, homicidal maniac named Clyde “Schoolboy” Barrow, who longed to be a mobster in the mold of his idol, Pretty Boy Floyd. In the early 1930s, Bonnie and Clyde, employing a revolving crew of killers, committed murder and mayhem in mid-America; robbing banks, gas stations, and stores, and leaving numerous people dead, including nine law enforcement officers.
