Edmon Ryan Quotes:

Detective Sgt. Truscott: [narrating] Robert Mais - a no-good guy. A police record of 21 arrests for serious crimes - everything from arson to suspicion of murder. The severest punishment of his whole criminal career was a one hundred dollar fine.

Detective Sgt. Truscott: [narrating] This is Winston-Salem, North Carolina, drowsing in the mid-afternoon sun of early spring, not knowing it had been chosen as the scene for the next exploit of the arrogant mob we know as "The Tri-State Gang". These men operated openly, wearing no masks, boldly flaunting the law. To escape detection, they simply killed anyone who might possibly get in their way.

[last lines]
Detective Sgt. Truscott: You cannot be kind to congenital criminals like these. They would show you no mercy. Let them feel the full impact of the law.
