Firelands County, Colorado, just hired a new Sheriff. Firelands County, Colorado, knew their new Sheriff was a Marine, a Gulf War veteran, and was recently graduated from college; they sent their chief deputy to pick up Sheriff Will Keller from the airport. Firelands County, Colorado, did not know their Sheriff would arrive in a tailored, dark-blue suit dress, and high heels. In the Sheriff's first half-hour in-county,she uses a shotgun to stop a barfight, slams a drunk face-first into the painted plasterboard, arrests the Mayor and tells the Board of County Commissioners which of them is an adulterer, with whom and how many times; which of them is a gambler, how much he has lost at the tracks, and at which track; she lets them know in no uncertain terms exactly where they can get off, and proceeds to run her department as she pleases. The Sheriff is here to do a job, and she doesn't fight fair. And she doesn't -- whether it's drug traffickers, a crooked prosecutor, a fiancee or getting justice, Sheriff Willamina Keller gets what she wants. Peacefully, or otherwise. She doesn't care which.
