Blood and guts, bacon and eggs donít mix


The Gazette was a morning paper that subscribers often read at breakfast. So the desk did not like pictures of dead people. The story below, about a running gun battle between an escaped convict and the police in which a cop and the escapee died, resulted in the readers seeing an inoffensive arrow pointing to where the murderer took his last breathe. The second picture below is what happened to a cop killer when the Montreal police of the 1960s caught up with him. It did not appear in the paper.
