The robber fraternity apparently has failed to spread the
word among its members that hitting the Bank of Clarkson, Kentucky,
when banker Clyde Bratcher is on duty can be a fatal mistake.
Bratcher was in his office one Tuesday afternoon when a man vaulted
over the bank counter and declared, "This is a robbery!" Bratcher
charged to the rescue, firing twice with a handgun whose shots
fatally struck the bandit in the chest. He had protected the bank's
assets in a similar manner only three years earlier by dispatching
yet another would-be crook who walked into the bank wielding a rifle
and wearing a stocking on his head. Bratcher s grandfather also
named Clyde Bratcher was a bank president when, in 1958, he ran off
three bandits, pointing at them with a gun whose 35-year old
cartridges failed to fire.
