How did the sheriff react when he was told about violence against members of the black community? What does this show about how the laws were enforced at that time?

The sheriff does whatever Mr. Granger says he should and turns a blind eye to violence against blacks. He makes no move to stop lynch mobs. The laws at the time did not accommodate black people. Injustices were tolerated if not encouraged by law enforcement like the sheriff.
