Bonnie Parker is portrayed as particularly violent in The Highwaymen , from her use of an automatic rifle in that opening sequence to a murder in cold blood on the side of a highway.
Jeff Guinn, who wrote the biography Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde , refutes this depiction of her, saying that there are only two or so records of her firing a gun, and no evidence that she killed anyone. While the popular conception of Bonnie and Clyde depicts them as grandiose bank robbers, the truth was more mundane.
The Highwayman (poem)
The Barrow Gang mostly robbed gas stations and convenience stores; they would even break into gumball machines to collect the change. Their criminal lifestyle resulted in them killing around a dozen people in all, most of them law enforcement officers.

Guinn and other historians contend that Barrow preferred to run from most confrontations but was willing to shoot his way out when necessary. Frank Hamer was legendary long before he gunned down Bonnie and Clyde.
Hamer was an integral member of the Texas Rangers, a law enforcement agency which fought Mexicans, Native Americans, bank robbers and bootleggers in Texas and along the border in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Hamer became a senior captain of the Rangers in and played a large role combating the Ku Klux Klan in Texas. He became known for his ability to control riots and his patient, skilled investigative work.

He turned to mostly private investigation work before being hired to hunt down Bonnie and Clyde following the Eastham breakout. In The Highwaymen , Costner plays Hamer with a growl, a sluggish gait and a steadfast sense of right and wrong.
