Tequila For My Horses?

Willie Nelson sings a song with Toby Keith in which they lament the way society has gone "soft" on crime. The song celebrates the old-time law enforcer who would saddle up his boys, round up the criminals and send them to their Maker. Then....these cowboy-lawmen would meet up at the local saloon where the Sheriff would order a round of "Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses."

Well, it seems the Spanish police have a similar philosophy to Toby and Willie's! Check out this old video which is simultaneously disturbing and satisfying. It offends my modern sensibilities (which are not very acute), but appeals to my Wild West sense of swiftly-executed justice.

Ah! I love that song! It reminds me of riding in Grandad's truck on the way to Rube's diner for breakfast. :)
