Summary
Train robberies, stage-coach holdups, posses, breakouts and shoot-em-ups step out of the darker pages of Michigan's past and spring to life in Tom Carr's MI Bad: Robbers, Cutthroats and Thieves in Michigan's Past and Present. The Great Lakes State has seen more than its share of sensational crimes in the last couple of centuries. MI Bad shines a searchlight on several of the most jaw-dropping capers and rogues, including: - A couple of 1880s prostitution procurers who roll drunken lumberjacks for their wages in a whorehouse and bury bodies in shallow graves. The two die drunk and destitute in a freezing shack. - Baby Face Nelson gets his big-time career start -- with an actual baby -- in a bank holdup in Depression-era Grand Haven. - A 1970s, cinema-esque escape from Jackson State Prison that falls apart quickly once outside the razor wire. - Train robbing brothers who get away with fortunes all over the Midwest, until one of them puts a bullet in the head of a well-liked Grand Rapids cop. - A 1960s cop and a 2010s fifth-grade teacher break bad. - Huge posses of armed Michiganders rush out to help -- and sometimes hinder -- a bank stickup. - A 19th Century U.P. boomtown finally has enough of a brothel owner beating the women he holds captive. - Plus many more blood-and-money tales of Wolverine-state intrigue, suspense or just plain awfulness
