A self fulfilling belief ....
They were telling words. The Kelly family and other poor Irish Catholics had been persecuted for years, sometimes brutally, by the police. By the time of the Stringy Bark Creek incident, Ned had every reason to believe the police were out to kill him, not capture him, it’s just so tragic that a series of mis-communication led to the deaths of these three policemen, and eventually most of the gang and Ned himself. It’s just what happens when you treat people badly enough - Ned was game enough to rebel, just like many of his countrymen back in Ireland, suffering under the yoke of English oppression.

Glad this is out there and again shows that the Kelly Gang should be reviled. It’s sad some still think of these things as anything but serial murderers.

A fascinating perspective, and a damn good yarn.
