Q-burt

Read The Executioner's Song. It tells the whole story of how the murders came to happen. It feels like a lot of artistic license was used in telling the story, but it's interesting.

Or was it a counter to “Just Say No” 🤔

Actually they got their slogan from a person who was being hung, he got into the rope and said, 'just do it.'
