The Miracle Valley Shootout

Recommended Posts

Lots to learn from this.  Happened in my backyard (for several years) of Sierra Vista, AZ, but that was long before I was ever there.

My old partner at work use to tell me about that. We would pass by the place a few times a week. Looks super creepy. I always wanted to go poke around in there.

History repeating its self. I don’t think it’s ever about race as much as it’s about people going whackadoo over a “god”.

 

 

could you seriously buy dinamite at a hardwear store in 1982?!?

GCA of 68 made dynamite a destructive device, you could still get it but had to fill out paperwork. law changed again in the mid 70's, no more dynamite for the regular joe, that's when grandpa showed me what potash and sugar would do.................

In 1982 they had to have been licensed or bought it from a licensed person illegally. Possible a hardware store was also a licensed supplier.

Id guess a bit of both. I dont expect that area would take too kindly to 300 militant black people showing up overnight and buying half the town.
