I think some of you don't fully appreciate that most Spanish resorts don't actually need a massive police presence because most of them aren't overrun every summer by skinny pasty faced foreign kids behaving like c**ts OR thieves OR whores OR assorted other parasites. The reality is most people in Spain are pretty chilled when they go on holiday. Most Spanish kids prefer a spliff to getting pissed. As a result many of the police recruits don't have the same experience or background in dealing with these situations as good ol PC Plod. When resources are finite and there are logistical issues, you can guess what happens next... The Spanish heavyweight police, the antidisturbios, the ones who nearly cracked my mum's head open in a polling station in 2017, those guys are saved for political or football riots, the ones who do resorts are further down the chain and hopelessly ill-equipped a lot of the time whilst the GC save their firepower for major league murders or drug busts. So the solution can't come from the police because it ain't gonna happen.
