Ned Kelly- Known as an Outlaw and folk hero, Ned Kelly had his first encounter with the law at the tender age of 14years when he was charged with beating up a Chinese man. Ned was victimized by the police who proposed to shoot him without a trail which compelled him to become an outlaw. The account of the police harassment directed against Ned and his family and his consequent evasion of police arrest for years which turned him into a local folk hero has become common knowledge.
