Transcript of Is Edward (Ned) Kelly a Hero, Victim or Villain

Is Edward (Ned) Kelly a Hero, Victim or Villain Firstly when Ned Kelly was just a boy his farther died so as the oldest he took on the role as head some years later he was sent to prison for stealing a horse although he did not commit the crime he was still sent to prison.

and pay the shop owners what he owed them. Secondly: Ned Kelly was presumably a very nice man. He never treated his hostages with cruelty but entertained them with shows, food and parties. He was always kind to his family, his gang and his hostages.

No. Ned Kelly was a victim
