Alive If Possible Dead If Necessary 1907-1929


Crime and violence in the territorial days is well known. However, Oklahoma outlaws of the 1920’s led a reign of robbery & violence that stretched beyond the borders. When the number of bank robberies in 1924 reached 52, public officials were forced to respond by creating a unique state law enforcement agency that was commonly referred to as the ‘State Crime Bureau.’ Oklahoma law men confronted outlaws who had made the transition from horse-back to automobile. The pursuit of these outlaws was a dangerous business. Law men who lost their lives in the line of duty included state operative, Luther Bishop who was brutally gunned down.
