Read the story and looked at the badge, it has an "A" on it, what does that mean?

You know I should have explained that and was going to make a link to badge history.
Throughout Texas, then and now there are various Ranger headquarters called companies. And each one of these headquarters is also called a "company," since in the early, early days the Rangers were very much a military unit.

"Company A," is in Houston, Texas. That is how they are organized.
Here is a much better look at exactly that...

High speed vehicle pursuits NOT being immediately called off by bosses...

I checked out the Ranger website, very few Rangers employed by the State. Must be huge case loads, or do they get to pick and choose?

They pick and choose cases, and they "join into" other investigations headed by local authorities if the case is big enough. Their main job is to be invited in as unbiased investigators when there might be a question of politics or bias. Or their headquarters assigned them...odd and unusual cases of state-wide consequences.

More on that here: http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/director_staff/texas_rangers/jobduties.htm

I knew and worked with some Rangers there were nicknamed "working Rangers" because the areas they are assigend are understaffed by local police and they took an interest in helping out in mnay kinds of cases.  Phil Ryan was one and he was said to have worked a tractor theft as hard as a murder and that was my personal  experience working with him on several cases, several of them murders.
One chronicled in a series back here: Ryan's picture too.
