Do you remember the 1973 film Walking Tall? Sheriff Buford Pusser singlehandedly cleaned up his corrupt Tennessee town. Man was that awesome!
That’s the sort of film that leads kids to dream of growing up and becoming sheriff. You get to wear a spiffy uniform and cool utility belt, maybe ride a horse and wear a cowboy hat, and best of all, you’re the good guy! You get to capture the bad guys and throw them in jail where they belong. Sounds amazing, right?
