about Custom Western Badges
is the difference between a Marshal and a Sheriff?
In the old west the powers of the Sheriff and those
of a Marshal often overlapped and at times became
blurred. Some towns had a Sheriff others had a Marshal.
Some Sheriff's were appointed by Counties - so they
would be County Sheriffs - but didn't have jurisdiction
in any towns within them. The Peace Officer appointed/elected
by the town was the final word on law enforcement
within town limits. So
who out ranks who? Any Peace officer appointed by
the Federal Government or Judicial System has the
most sweeping powers. A U.S. Marshal can go anywhere
and do virtually anything in his pursuit of a felon.
is what County Sheriff Johnnie Behan thought he
had to arrest Wyatt Earp, after Earp and his boys
had exacted some revenge for the murder of his brother
Morgan and the crippling of Virgil by bushwackers.
Behan was a known sympathizer of the "Cowboys"
led by Ike Clanton, and this is how an exchange
with Earp went, as reported by an eye witness.
"Wyatt I want to see you. . . ."
if yer not careful," Earp replied, "you'll
see me once too often. . . ."
