brian,
w.w."snake" thomason was my grandad. he was also known as "snakestick" he was a very well known special agent with the BIA. When Herbert Hoover was made the top man in the new FBI there were 12 agents under him that he knew could and would take his job if he stubbed his toe. Grandad was the fastest gun and the most accurate of all the federal agents for many years. When Elliot Ness starterd the Alcohol & Tobacco - Wild Bunch he called Hoover and told him he needed 12 of the best agents he could spare and that morning he sent those top 12 to Elliot.
Grandpa was one of those agents and his side kick was Young Blood who was in the movie The Wild Bunch.
