Barrow's subsequent conduct, immediately after the incident at the San Augustine farmhouse, is also difficult to reconcile with Nell's picture of the innocent youth trapped into a criminal career by a single unconsidered brush with the police. If this were the case, why within a few hours would he steal a car to try to take Anne and her mother back to Dallas? His action was doubly stupid, not only because of the risk involved after his earlier offense but also because it would hardly be easy to explain to Anne's already hostile mother how he had so quickly obtained a second car.
Not long after this, Bonnie took a job in a busy cafe in the center of Dallas. Marco's Cafe was on Main Street, two blocks from the Dallas courthouse, and many of the customers were lawyers and city officials, some of whom Bonnie would later encounter in very different circumstances.
