Texas Rangers


Texas Rangers
Fuerza policial de organización poco rígida de Texas.

Sus primeros integrantes fueron "minutemen contratados por los colonos estadounidenses, en la década de 1830, como protección contra ataques de los indios. No usaban uniforme ni saludaban a sus oficiales, pero mantenían una disciplina estricta y eran célebres por su certera puntería; en sus manos, el revólver Colt se convirtió en el arma del Oeste. En la década de 1870, su época cumbre, los Rangers impusieron el orden público a lo largo de cientos de kilómetros de la frontera de Texas. En 1935 se fusionaron con el servicio de patrulla de carreteras de dicho estado.
