I am from the south, so I know how these things work. Mostly they are stories from the mountains that are not true. They may have been at one time, but these tactics are no longer accepted practice. When these stories are told they perpetuate the bad stereo type of the south. We have teeth, we wear shoes and we don't take people out in the woods and hang them. We also frown upon those who fly the confederate flag in the rear window of their pick up trucks behind their gun racks. They are not the norm.
