Married, Interracial Couple Who Didn't Get Shot To Death In Final Gun Battle Just Like Bonnie & ClydeSurrendering without incident borne of "diabolical brilliance" say analysts
Many in media have noted George and Jennifer Hyatte's non-incidental surrender to police completely echoes the bloody, bullet-ridden expiration of Bonnie and Clyde.
Columbus, Ohio—More than one observer who watched as the country closed ranks to capture a deadly fugitive couple had a ready comparison at hand: to that of Bonnie & Clyde.
"We all thought the same thing, " said one media analyst. "Bonnie & Clyde were a Caucasian couple, who went out in a hail of gunfire in their final stand. Bonnie and Clyde weren't married, and sure they were depression-era bank robbers who continued to successfully shoot their way out of siege after siege with the police. Bonnie was reputed to be beautiful by those who knew her. After that, though, the parallels become stunningly similar."
Many believe the obvious differences in the two stories, is what makes them alike.
"They both lived in the USA," said one reporter. "They both used guns on other people. They both ran in the other direction when incarcerating authorities tried to stop them. It's like they're cut from the same mold in time or something."
Criminologists point to George and Jennifer Hyatte's decision to "not put up a fight" as the factor that "solidifies the anachronistic brilliance" so attributed to Bonnie and Clyde—not to mention the not-so-subtle romantic overtones shared by both accounts.
"The two are lovers, not fighters," said one criminologist. "It wouldn't surprise me a bit if they perform a death-row rendition of Othello."
