Wyatt Earp

There is a good tv show about Wyatt Earp on tonight, that is if you dont wish to watch the re runs of Crocodile Dundee. Perhaps both Wyatt Earp and Crocodile Dundee have some interesting points in common?

Except that Wyatt Earp is in the history books of the Wild Wild West. Here is an out take about Wyatt and the Ok Coral shoot out in Tombstone.

The gunfight at the OK Corral was the classic Western shootout. It eventually turned one man into a great American hero and a symbol of the nation. His name was Wyatt Earp. But after the smoke cleared on that fateful day in Tombstone in the autumn of 1881 with Tom McLaury, his brother Frank and Billy Clanton lying dead in the dusty street, Wyatt Earp wasn’t seen as a hero but a villain.

The legendary lawman was arrested and put on trial for murder. And the prosecution were so sure of victory that they pushed for the ultimate penalty – death. The resulting court case was one of the most dramatic in American history and its outcome helped shape the nation.

The most famous of a new breed of lawmen, Wyatt Earp, had himself been a notorious gunfighter. But when he came riding into Dodge City in 1876, the mayor hired him to be the peacekeeper.

The other side of the law

The gun-slinging drunken cowboys had met their match. Earp was tougher and meaner than they were. But he understood that you couldn’t end the violence, you could only keep it at bay – keep it away from the community you were trying to protect.

He was given full control and immediately created the famous “deadline” – a border into town beyond which no one could carry a gun. Anywhere outside the “deadline” it was every man for himself, anything went. (end quote)

Wyatt Earp must have had some very good values to become a Law Man. He turned his life around apparently and then tamed some of the Wild West.

Another example of Saturn oposite Uranus and changing ones script patterns in life.

    Good post Kingsley,

    I watched some of it on TV last night but I did jump at times over to Crocodile Dundee.

    Wyatt did seem to have a wide ranging impact and as you say maybe he is a good example of a life script change

    I think he changed back and forward a couple of times Grafitti. Especially after his brothers were shot and he became involved with what was described as natural justice. Which ever side of the line he was on he was motivated by justice. Wyatt did a full circle by becoming a law unto himself. Interesting story.
