You don't really know how big the Missouri river is you've been to the Mississippi River, it's about three quarters. As far crossed the Mississippi. River may be ninety percent at some places depends here in right here at Kansas City. It's channelize. So it's not by half. As far crosses the Mississippi River is in many places, but it's they've to say, it's a huge big river. So I had to go look and see what was the deal here. The articles starts off with the battle began in a crowded street causing the panic among hundreds of passer bys the battle began in a crowded street causing panic among hundreds of passer bys it ended in a sensational. Chase of a woman fanatic and child who had taken to a skiff, Missouri. River after they had been chased from a houseboat. What's police stormed in the face of armed resistance? I oh my God. They shot a kid in a boat out in the middle of the river. Which means there was no talk about don't shoot hands up man today. You would be kerchief for that.

So they didn't have driver's licenses. They didn't have. License plates on their cars, and when you'd stop them and write them tickets for that, then they would say, you know, you're not right.
