Thursday April 12th, 2012 - Buford Pusser
Titerest: McNairy County, Tennessee had an organized crime problem in the 1960s and Sheriff Buford Pusser had an idea how to solve it: he got a 4×4, carved it into a club, and used it beat the living crap out of criminals. He jailed 7,500 criminals over 6 years by targeting illegal gambling dens, prostitution rings, and moonshine stills.
Titerest: Even after they killed his wife, shot him 8 times, and stabbed him 7 times he kept beating the living crap out of organized crime. He once jumped onto the hood of a car that tried to run him over, smashed the window, and beat the crap out of the driver.
Titerest: Yesterday's badass of the day wrote: "Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far." We don't know anything about how softly Pusser spoke, but he carried a big stick and knew how to use it, and that's why he's the @Titerest Badass of the Day for Thursday April 12th, 2012.
