Between 1896 and 1900, the Wild Bunch rode and robbed at will over half a dozen states, eluding sheriffs, lynch mobs, Pinkerton detectives, and Wells Fargo agents. Pressure from law enforcement—including posses that traveled by train, with their horses saddled and ready to ride if the bandits struck—caused gang members to scatter in the early 1900s, most of them shot, hanged, or imprisoned. The last known member, Ben Kilpatrick, was killed by railroad express guards in March 1912. Butch and Sundance beat the heat by fleeing to New York, then moved on to South America.

Police tell a very different story, describing the major outlaw biker gangs as a subset of organized crime, dealing drugs, weapons, and other contraband on an international scale and earning billions of dollars each year. The Big Four While dozens of 1 percent motorcycle gangs flourish worldwide, police mark four groups as the hands-down leaders in violent criminal activity. In order of creation, they include n The Outlaws Motorcycle Club, organized in 1935 in the Chicago suburb of McCook, Illinois.

From there, the gang robbed other banks and also looted trains. The Dalton brothers, cousins of the Youngers, later picked up where their relatives left off, continuing the family tradition until they were slaughtered at Coffeyville, Kansas, while robbing two banks at once on October 15, 1892. Bank robbery did not die with the Daltons; quite the reverse, in fact. America’s farm depression of the 1920s, followed by the stock market crash of 1929 and the Great Depression of 1930–41, encouraged certain reckless men (and a few female “gun molls”) to loot the banks that had foreclosed on their mortgages, leaving them homeless and broke.
