  • Ben Chooses Wrong

    5.5
    When Sheriff Roy Coffee is injured trying to capture a gang holding up the express office,he ask Ben to be the temporary replacement Sheriff.Ben flattered feels that it would be wrong of him to be acting Sheriff.He chooses another,a man who works for him,Asa Moran.This decision will prove to be a grave mistake.Asa takes to his job as acting Sheriff too well.He corners,and then kills the two men who had tried again to rob the express office.The only problem was that these men had already dropped their guns when ordered to.From then on,Asa becomes abusive in his role of acting Sheriff,literally,and figuratively to two people.One of these two is Adam,and for no good reason.It is up to the Cartwrights to stop this abuser of the Law before other people get hurt,or become dead.moreless
