Ned Kelly was an Australian bushranger, and arguably one of the best
known as he was said to nobly help out the poor (this is a myth). He
formed the Kelly gang with his brother Dan Kelly, Steve Hart and Joe
Bryne. Following the murder of police informer Aaron Sherritt on 27 June
1880 Ned Kelly's gang expected a large number of police to travel to
Glenrowan by train.
They tried to get the townsfolk to help lift the rail tracks to cause
a derailment, hoping to kill a large number of the expected police. Not
many townsfolk were willing to assist, and people were gradually
rounded up and held in the Glenrowan Inn so that they could not warn the
train. After several hours, the Kelly gang allowed the more trusted
hostages to go home at nightfall,
as the train was running late. Local schoolteacher Thomas Curnow was
one of those released, and when he heard the approaching train in the
early hours of June 28, he ran quickly to warn of the danger ahead.
Wearing their famous armour, the Kelly brothers held a shootout with
police. Several hostages were injured in the gun battle and two later
died from gunshot wounds.
The other Kelly Gang members were killed, and Ned was shot twenty
eight times in the legs, which were unprotected by the armour. He
survived to stand trial, and was sentenced to death by hanging, which
occurred in Melbourne on 11 November 1880. (MORE)It depends how you look

what was right and what he believed in .
On the contrary, Ned Kelly did not steal from the rich and give to
the poor. He certainly didn't give the proceeds to the poor, but kept it
for himself. He was a thief and a murderer, yet has been elevated by
some misguided people to the status of "hero". (MORE)
