    When I was stationed aboard a ship that was in Rota, Spain when Generalissimo Franco was in charge while in the Navy, 1) No one there would have been DumbArse enough to try something like that, and 2) If they had been stopped by Franco's, "Guardia Civil," (Civil Guard), those perps may have been shot on the spot. We need some of that over here. Guaranteed to reduce crime. They are lucky that I am not KING!!!!!
