  • I Think So

    Ned was just a poor guy who just got caught up in a chain of events he couldn't control. While he wasn't a perfect person, and made plenty of mistakes along the way, such as his killings, I think, based on the current evidence, he didn't mean or intend to hurt anyone and unfortunately once he started to he couldn't stop because the police were out for blood.

  • Ned Kelly is an Australian hero

    I think absolutely without a doubt, one hundred percent Ned Kelly is an Australian iconic hero because he gave money to the poor and embarrassed the police. He also saved a little kids life from drowning. He did this because he is a good person. It was in a creek called 'Hughs creek'. After Ned gave the boy back to his parents, the parents gave Ned a green and gold sash and Ned Kelly always wore that sash with pride.

  • Such is life

    Absolutely! Stood against tyrany, police corruption (they tried to rape his sister), he stood up for what he believed in. Wrote the best insulting ever. He is the aussie working class hero. And even better he was Irish Australian. Love his legacy in Australia we love him. He stuck it to the man.

  • Monkey loves monkey so does cat and mice hate each other because the rat steels the cheese and then the cat ends up kill...

    Ing the rat maybeee but the rat has a secret place to run into and that is called a mouse hole also know as a small hole in a wall were a rat or mice live. I read a book about a mouse who falls in love with a princess and is hated bye other mice. When the king had found out about this be trew themouset in the dungeon and that is when the mouse meets the big bad rats and saves the day and gets out as he comws back to the mouse city they congradulate him because be had fighted the rats whith a needle. But there was 1 ral born who wanted to see the light but since he was a rat he was told to stay in the dark because that is a rat law/ but this rat realy wanted to see the light so he had managed to get out of the dungeon.

  • Ned Kelly is a true Australian Hero

    I think that he was a hero because he was standing up for his rights and he robbed banks and gave out some money to the poor because he wasn't selfish. He sure did bad things in his life but he did it for the right cause. The truth is that the law was injustice.

  • Ned Kelly was not a criminal , but a hero in our eyes

    Ned Kelly was a generous family man, who was set up by the Police and murdered by the government, as the real story goes, he was on a horse which threw a shoe , which hit the horse of the daughter of a policeman, which set of a chain of events that led to the Police setting him up to Take revenge, they ambushed Ned Kelly firing their pistols which led to Ned Kelly firing back in self defense, which is what really happened, he was no criminal, the Police set him up , to tarnish his name , due to their hated of the Kelly Brothers, in the end Ned Kelly died or was murdered by the Victorian Government for something he didn't do, Ned Kelly will live on for the hero that he was

  • He was a solid loyal trustworthy family man

    This guy i believe done what he seen as his only option at the age 12 to help feed and provide for his family. His family was poor he stood tall took on the roll of upholding the family home and keeping his family safe. These morons on the no side need to wake up. There was corruption in the police and always will be thats why there was a royal commission formed. Theres all types OF PEOPLE in all forms of life BUT THE BEST TYPE IS ONE TO STAND TALL IN FRONT OF HIS FAMILY AT ANY SACRIFICE

  • Ned Kelly was a true Australian hero.

    He always treated his prisoners well and organised games and dance competitions. He stood up for his sister against an unqualified constable because she was wrongly treated. And when he was younger he saved a young boy from drowning in a river. Overall, Ned Kelly was a true blue Australian hero.

  • Ned Kelly is An Australian Hero

    Ned Kelly was a selfless generous and loyal man.

    The Australian Hero was Selfless because he risked his own life to save a boy (Dick) from drowning. Yes, Ned Kelly was a criminal, but a criminal with a good heart and a criminal who fought against the corrupt police and banking systems for the people and never gave up. Yes, he made of stolen horse but he returned them and sometimes returned them in better condition than before.

    Ned was extremely loyal to his family. When he was a wanted man Ned could of left Victoria or even Australia but he didn't. For the whole period time that he was on the run Ned was never more than 50 kilometres away from his home town. Even though Ned was wanted he was loyal and caring because refused to leave his family until his mum was out of jail.

    Ned was also a generous man. Yes, in his robberies he took people hostage. He always took care of them and treated them like guests. So his didn't get bored Ned organised sporting games and dancing. He bought them drinks and let them go after the robberies. Ned never killed any of them and why would he? He is a hero.

    Ned Kelly had all the qualities of a true Australian Hero

  • Ned Kelly was evil, no more to be said.

    As an Australian, I am ashamed to have idiots who think that murderers such as Ned Kelly were good men. Firstly, the police back then were not corrupt, nor did they rape and pillage like people say they did, the police were what they were, in Fuedal Japan the Police (samurai) would decapitate you if you insulted them. Back then, cops weren't even armed with guns most of the time, Kelly robbed and murdererd from stage coaches and banks leaving countless amounts of people broke (who would later starve/live terrible lives with no money). He murdererd 2 Police Officers and was rightly executed for it, then we have idiot revisionist historians in the modern day who completely dis respect the police force and everyone who has died in the line of duty for some scumbag killer who was rightfully hanged for the terrible crimes he commited.
    Damn, maybe in 100 years people will say Obama was a good man.

  • The facts speak the truth

    Ned Kelly killed police officers with families. If Ned felt he was injusticed he should have used the right means of the time. These means included courts, not revolting against authority, breaking the laws and killing many people who were just doing their jobs. He was a hypocrite to his own self. He was seeking 'revenge' because he believed the police had broken the law, which very rightly they may have, but the argument is two sided and will never be resolved as we are a product of our own context and Kelly is portrayed to represent what Australians are 'supposed' to be, larrikin's and respectful people but does this mean we also go around disobeying order and killing anyone who annoys us and then not expect to be served justice through the courts?

  • He was a gangster

    He was a gangster because killed three policemen .If he would not be a good guy hanged in a crowd crowded to see him get hanged. He got shot on his leg and got to jail!!! I now know and you know why he is a big bad guy gangster nowadays.

  • There is no excuse for murder

    Regardless of his reasoning for why he murdered and stole, he still broke the law. His common excuse was that he was defending himself and his family but there were obviously less violent ways to resolve his problem with the government.
    Many argue that at the time of the accusation towards Kelly by Fitzpatrick, Ned was miles away in the bush. However what evidence is there of this claim? Whom is a witness?
    People believe the views of those whom had connections to the Kelly's, failing to provide proper reasoning and evidence for what they claim to be the "truth". Ned Kelly was no a hero in any way shape or form. He murdered several policemen whom were doing there job by serving their country's law. They were protecting the lives of many, and Kelly and his gang thoughtlessly shot them to their death.
    Australia loves the idea of an underdog hero figure, and so throughout history, the country has gradually publicised Ned Kelly as a legend. However, he was no hero. Ned Kelly was a villain and a danger to the well being of citizens of the country at the time of his attacks.

  • He help peopel

    Evidence

    Ned Kelly sister was standing next to the baby and constable Fitzpatrick came over. He leaned near me and I could smell his sweat and brandy leaning over me. He grabbed her arm and pulled me to his lap she yelled 'Get your greasy hands of me'. Danny and her mother ran into the room she got throwed to the floor. Mrs Kelly threw hot coals onto him while Danny dived and the gun. A bullet nicked constable Fitzpatrick's hand Ned yelled to Fitzpatrick 'If you touch my sister again there will be a bullet to your head next time'. HE WAS TRYING TO PROTECT HIS FAMILY

  • Ned Kelly Can be A Criminal

    I have read that Ned Kelly killed 3 officers with any reason to support why his gang killed those three officers. He may have saved kids when he was little but he did become a criminal when he was older. That is why Ned Kelly is an Australian Criminal. But I still don't understand how he is not a criminal. This is just my opinion it may not be correct but it is just an opinion

  • Ned Kelly was a glorified criminal due who has grown into a hero through the power of legend.

    Ned Kelly was a ruthless outlaw who was morally against the law. He continuously committed crimes and avoided the law because of an immature grudge against them. There were many cases in which he could have responded to situations whilst still abiding the law rather than acting with violence. He often did things just to get a reaction out of the police. The murder of Aaron Sherritt is a prime example of this, when Ned heard that Sherritt had been an informant to the police he ordered him to be killed simply to spark a reaction out of the law. This evidence shows how his behaviour is almost childlike and demonstrates how Ned Kelly’s actions were motivated by basic immaturity. Ned had no regard for the government and felt the murder of police was justified by his own personal grudge against them. Evidence of this is shown when he attempted derailing of the train full of police. Kelly was willing to kill a train full of police just because they worked for the law, proving that he had little humanity. A major example of Kelly’s minimal humanity is the incident at Stringybark Creek. Ned Kelly shot three policemen whilst they were in process of surrendering, claiming that they were too late in their plea for their life. The numerous amount of evidence enforces the fact that Ned Kelly’s actions were only based on an immature dislike against the law. He had a personal grudge against anything to do with the law and would have his hatred satisfied by the murdering of innocent people.
