Was Ned Kelly good or bad?
Opinions are divided on this. Some people feel that Ned Kelly was only trying to look after his family when he stole from others. However, he murdered at least four people during his bushranging years: murder is not the sign of a good person.
yes Ned Kelly did do good things , He stood up aganst the british, gave to the poor and looked after his family. There is no evidence to suggest Ned Kelly ever gave his plunder to the poor. This is a myth that is constantly perpetuated. It is true that he did care for his family, but this was about the extent of his 'goodness'.
Ned Kelly was a bushranger, an outlaw, and often such criminals were supported by friends and family. Ned Kelly had several run-ins with the law, and his family often felt that they were persecuted by the police. This was a common problem among Irish immigrants and ex-convicts. The Kelly gang was formed in response to the bad treatment the Kellys felt they received, and they felt they had nothing to lose by turning to crime.
