This article is quite positive for an article about a murderer and warcriminal which is evident. The socalled battles with indians, reverred in the article, where often massacres. -Steven 19/10/2009
First, please put yr comments below the Project whatnots. Second, Rip may have been a racist, unpleasant sumbitch (scroll down from here for him neglecting his duty to apprehend someone who actually did commit a massacre;) but to the extent war crimes existed, they didn't apply to irregular brigands like the Comanche (who would've fallen under regulations for piracy,) and massacres are what the Comanche committed (cf. Fort Parker massacre, Rachel Plummer, Linnville Raid, etc.) or (admittedly) what Rip sometimes ignored. What he actually did, however, was warfare against armed combatants, although sourced controversy is fine to present in the article. -LlywelynII (talk) 23:33, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
