The Last Sheriff in Texas
- A True Tale of Violence and the Vote
- By: James P. McCollom
- Narrated by: Jeffrey Brick
- Length: 9 hrs and 22 mins
Beeville, Texas, was the most American of small towns - the place that GIs had fantasized about while fighting through the ruins of Europe, a place of good schools, clean streets, and churches. Old West justice ruled, as evidenced by a 1947 shootout when outlaws surprised popular sheriff Vail Ennis at a gas station and shot him five times, point-blank, in the belly. Ennis managed to draw his gun and put three bullets in each assailant. Supportive telegrams from all across America poured into Beeville's tiny post office. Then a second violent incident threw Ennis into the crosshairs of public opinion once again.
