Judge Roy Bean

"During the 1870's, the wildest spot in the United States was the desolate region west of the Pecos River.
Virtually beyond the reach of the authorities, the railroads, then pushing their way west, attracted the most vicious characters in the country.
 It was said that all civilization and law stopped at the east bank of the Pecos.
It took one man, a lone storekeeper who was sick of the lawlessness, to change all this..... His name was Judge Roy Bean".
