Sheriff Cochise County Badge
Cochise County Sheriff John H. Behan took up with the Clanton gang. The Clanton's were a large ranching family of outlaws, led by N.C. Old Man Clanton and his sons Peter, Joseph Isaac or Ike, Phinias or Phin, and Billy. Sheriff Behan was reportedly on the Clanton payroll to overlook illegal activities. Behan, along with his crooked deputies, looked the other way while the Clanton-McLaury gang rustled cattle, held-up stagecoaches, and parcelled out spoils to the corrupt sheriff.
