Other Law Enforcement in No Country for Old Men

Other Law Enforcement

Protect and Serve

It's hard to tell the other law enforcement members apart. They're interchangeable. We don't even get physical descriptions, and they all talk with the same Texas twang. If you can tell Torbert, Wendell, or Sheriff Lamar apart, you let us know. The same goes for DEA Agent McIntyre. Are they all the same because that's how Chigurh and Mexican bandits view law enforcement? To these guys, law enforcement officers are all the same because they're all the enemy, regardless of name, history, or personality. That's one guess, anyway.
