Sympathetic historians review the life of Billy the Kid, bullied from childhood, who descended into crime after shooting hectoring card sharp Windy Cahill. Given a chance of honest work by English John Tunstall, Billy formed a vigilante group to hunt down the business rivals who murdered Tunstall, including the notoriously bent sheriff Brady. However, despite Governor Lew Wallace's efforts to pardon him, Billy was turned into an outlaw by corrupt politicians making capital out of his situation and eventually shot by Pat Garrett. The consensus of the discussion is that Billy should be pardoned.
