Frank from the Rangers is Frank Hamer, a Texas Ranger who was most famous for his involvement in tracking down and killing criminals Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. He has a legendary status within the state of Texas and is considered the archetypal Texas Ranger by the Southwest.

His career spanned from days in the Wild West until the beginning of the automobile age and can be broken down into his time in law enforcement before and during the killing of Parker and Barrow.

  • Early law enforcement career
Hamer was a ranger throughout his life, taking time away from the career now and again to lend his services to other jobs. At the age of 24 he was a City Marshal in Navasota where at least one hundred men had died in shootouts in two years. Hamer created law and order in the town before moving on to other work.

He became famous in the 20s for putting an end to the murder for reward ring, where the Texas Banking Association were paying out rewards to anyone who could kill a bank robber. 27 years after working with the Rangers, Hamer retired. His reasons being that they had elected a female governor.

  • Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow
Although Hamer is known for a number of his installations of law and order, he is most famous for the ambushing of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. The criminals had embarrassed government and enforcement officials across dozens of states and drew the last straw when they helped prisoners escape from a Texan prison.

Hamer accepted a commission to head the hunt and began the investigation by examining the criminals' moves. He tracked their circle until he knew where they could be ambushed.

Frank from the Rangers is legendary to the state of Texas and was an important investigator and law enforcer in the history of the United States.
