The Last Violent Encounter

Dodger Mullins had come to the door of Arthur and Milly’s home demanding money. On this occasion, Arthur had decided not to pay up and the resultant tidal wave of abuse so shocked him that, with a loaded revolver, Arthur chased the gang up and out of his road.

His wife too was not scared, and had joined in with the pursuit. Owing to a moral sense of responsibility, Arthur and Milly pursued the case through the courts, not the streets. Dodger received six years for demanding money with menaces and Arthur received a large payout from the gang of £60 for dampening down their evidence slightly.  Arthur subsequently left behind the criminal underworld for good.
