Libertad Is Just Another Word for Freedom, Which Is Just Another Word For Nothing Left to Lose

Proving that even horses have enough sense to realize that nothing good ever comes from hanging around Mexican cops, somewhere between 20-30 of the beasts broke loose from a trailer in which they were being transported, and made a run for it. Of course, since they were in the middle of Mexico City at the time, the result was a sight unusual even by the astoundingly high standards of Mexican urban traffic.

The out of breath narrator says that the horses broke off one of his mirrors, and that a bunch of them appeared injured, which is not surprising, since running through traffic in Mexico is generally a worse idea even than calling the cops for something. Most of the horses have been captured, but it's not clear if all of them have because, hey, why would you expect Mexican cops to know exactly how many horses they were transporting?
