An "old Indian trick" among my Native ancestors was to turn over a couple of old men from the tribe when the local whites came demanding custody of whoever was responsible for some recent cattle rustling or other crime we may or may not have committed.
Contrary to popular belief and with certain notable exceptions, such as the Comanche and some brands of Sioux and Apache, Indians did not like fighting and would go to great lengths to avoid it, including the above and moving great distances.

Unreal. He should be charged...and fired.
