Who was in charge and how are the laws enforced?Marshalls and rangers enforced the laws that were created by the government. These laws are enforced through intimidation and/or violence. The Marshals and rangers tracked down each outlaw, to either bring them back to custody or kill them. Bounties were usually awarded to the certain ranger or rangers who found the outlaw. A bounty is a sum of money, a large one at that, from the government.In the courts, the Judges have the most overall power. “Yes, and I will instruct you to start asking questions so that he may respond with answers” (53).True Grit Quote: “Your honor, my client and his father and brother were provoked into a gun battle by this man Cogburn” (50, 51). This Quote shows that Marshall's sometimes would use violence in dire times.
