Four Steps to Frontier Justice

  • Made their own rules…

    • “In point of fact, Poker Flats was ‘after somebody.’ It had lately suffered the loss of several thousand dollars, two valuable horses, and a prominent citizen” (534-535).

    • “It was experiencing a spasm of virtuous reaction, quite as lawless and ungovernable as any of the acts that had provoked it” (535).

  • Appointed justices of peace…

    • “A secret committee had determined to rid the town of all improper persons” (535).

    • “A few of the committee had urged hanging him [Mr. Oakhurst] as a possible example, and a sure method of reimbursing themselves from his pockets of the sums he had won from them” (535).

  • Have a “trial”…

    • “This was done permanently in regard of two men who were then hanging from the boughs of a sycamore in the gulch, and temporarily in the banishment of certain other objectionable characters” (535).

    • The leader of the posse, could be the appointed marshal, pronounces their sentence “Only, when the gulch which marked the uttermost limit of Poker Flat was reached…” (536).

    • Without a trial, “The exiles were forbidden to return at the peril of their lives” (536).
