  1. From WRSA. What makes this so astonishing is that this country has a history and tradition, at least until the 1920s, of very little police protection at all. For the first century or so, it was not unusual for an entire county to have a single sheriff with no deputies, and his job was literally to keep the peace, by *talking* to people. For a police force to even casually resemble a military force was unthinkable. Until now.
