Description: 

Jason complains to the sheriff who will not help him pursue Miss Quentin and the money she took that Yoknapatawpha "is not Russia, where just because he wears a little metal badge, a man is immune to law" (304). Presumably Jason is referring to the Soviet Union, where a totalitarian government had been in power since the Russian Revolution of 1917 - but it's also clear that Jason's reference, like all his generalizations, combines bigotry with ignorance.
