About Sheriff BurnsideEdit
Sheriff Burnside, who replaced Sheriff Fenton Washburn (Barry Corbin) as Dallas County Sheriff, apparently seems to be a more honest and reputable sort, compared to his predecessor, who always seemed to look the other way when investigations into the Ewings, namely J.R.'s, business pratices, came under investigative scrutiny; like his predecessor, he is dedicated to performing his duties whenever a serious crime happens, and anyone being investigated, including the Ewings, are implicated.
