  1. Correction: Bremer didn't kill the Governor of Alabama. In May 1972 Bremer shot Gov. Goerge Wallace 5 times and left him paralysed from the waist down. Wallace died in 1998 from Parkinson's.

  2. George W Bush had more attempt on his life then Clinton they just don’t want people to know. There was kid in Cincinnati Ohio that was detained when Bush was In Cincinnati to throw out the first pitch for the Cincinnati Reds.

  3. Fun fact: Richard Pavlick (3:58) was from my hometown in NH. his house was up the road from mine. it was abandoned ever since he lived there and was recently torn down along with the other two abandoned houses in front of it. my grandparents knew him. he purchased everything from the hardware store on main street which is still there. this whole story has always fascinated me. he was sent to an asylum in Manchester for the rest of his life, and he died like 30-40 years ago, so well before i was even a thought.
