Billy the Kid, was an American outlaw who killed 8 people before he was shot at the age of 21. Billy committed his first crime (of stealing food) at the age of 16, and was arrested for the same. Within 10 days, he was arrested again for robbing a laundry. He murdered a blacksmith in 1977, and soon took part in Mexico’s ‘Lincoln County War’ (1978) in which he allegedly killed three men, including Lincoln County Sheriff William J. Brady. He was convicted of Brady’s murder but soon escaped from prison. He was shot on July 14, 1881, but many say that he survived that night. We have curated some of his quotes on law, life, truth, leader, gang, killing, belief, etc.
