From the FCS Book of Little-Known Facts (Judge Roy Bean)

Judge Roy Bean was the law in the Old West

Known as the “law west of the Pecos,” Judge Roy Bean was the most feared lawman of the southwest. He was known for his quirks – such as holding court inside a saloon. At the very least criminals could get a drink while they waited on Bean to dish out western justice.

Even though Bean is known for being quite ferocious, most of his judgements ended with him telling the criminals to get the heck out of his saloon. He tended to rule on misdemeanors while sitting in his rocking chair on the porch of his bar. He was definitely an old west character.

There is never a time
to stop learning new things
