Once, my husband told me of this man. He avenges our wrongs. And the bounty killers sure do tremble when he appears. They call him "Silence." Because wherever he goes, the silence of death follows.
They're gonna kill 'em either way, they're all gonna die! I don't want you dead. I love you.
And why are you so interested in this gentleman's liberty?

I never did like to hit a man when his hands are tied, but if you make me sick enough, I'm gonna have to.
-Thinking is not what a soldier does.
Yes, Governor. No thinking, only rules.
Are you gonna abolish rewards, Sheriff?
-We're gonna abolish crime. We're buildin' a great country, and we're fightin' to make sure justice governs it. And not leeches like you.
You really believe that, Sheriff?
-That's right, mister.
You know, if I wasn't handcuffed, I'd applaud.

Killing a sheriff will cost you plenty. If I were you, I'd think it over.

I heard about that gun of yours. Some kind of mechanical gun. Not very accurate.
And I'm afraid, Sheriff, that if you don't release Loco immediately, other bounty hunters will be comin' to get him out of jail. That wouldn't be good.
-Reckon that's possible. That's just why they pay me. To keep order. Now them bandits you're all so scared of are nothin' but a bunch of hungry rags. If you folks put some provisions out at the edge of town, they won't bother you any more.
He can't answer, Sheriff. He's a mute.
-Well... I'll be. At least you coulda told me. I mean... you coulda let me know, ya know what I mean?
Many of us are not guilty. The price on our heads will disappear soon. The new governor promised general pardons. We have to endure till then.
The Old West is finished. Gunmen, bounty killers, bandits and sheriffs will belong to the same world. A better world where...
-Where a politician would give amnesty to the murderer of his own father to win an election.
You hate me because I kill bandits. But you do the same thing, 'cause you give 'em to the hangman.
-That's different. The law has a right to kill.
-Because when the law kills, it's not murder, it's punishment.

The social commentary, in a Western film from 1968:
You know we have to come down for food and they're always laying for us in the valley. They know we can't last long in this weather without supplies. Still, if we fought for our rights they'd raise the price on our heads and we'd be massacred.
This manhunt is inhuman. An amnesty will end it, if that's what the voters should decide on. The old West is finished. We must learn to live with people of all races and persuasions, and unite to make a new West.
Loco! Now listen: killing a Sheriff will cost you plenty. If I were you, I'd think it over!

First, all those outlaws in the mountains are headin' there. There's a modest price on their heads. Still, it's a powerful lot... when you add 'em all together, and it's nice and legal, too.
You were wise to put your trust in the law, boy.
They're against God, humanity, moral and public order. Killing them is a good thing, believe me.
Well, Petes. What times we live in... when a black's worth as much as a white man!
There's a bounty on each one. We'll come back and collect 'em later... all according to the law.
My husband was a good man. They forced him to steal, to give me a decent life.
Cold, ain't it? I reckon I'd head for a better climate if I was you... more like Haiti. Oh, I meant no offence, Pauline, no offence.
Charlie provoked him, and drew first. Well, I guess he had it coming, alright. Stranger shot in self-defence. It's a pretty good way to kill someone; the law can do nothin' about it.
Those are dangerous men, Sheriff. They're enemies of God and Man. The things they preach... what if one had his say in court and got acquitted? They'd be all be using the courts to spread, whatchamacallit. Nah, it's our patriotic duty to exterminate 'em!
