It could be interpereted as a prelude to Groggy's later treachery, Groggy needling Indio for the fun of it, or simply Groggy being thoughtless. Groggy is loyal to Indio up until Cuchilio's murder much later in the film, so if it's intended as foreshadowing it's very oblique.

Definitely not good, and Indio took it as a slight by Groggy.

thank you both for your replies...

yea, I never really read into why he'd said that very much, I just always kind of found it a pretty goofy thing to say to the leader of your gang...

thanks again.

Very interesting topic.  I figure that Tomaso was a gang member who betrayed Indio to the law and ran off with a sum of cash.  And I also figure that Indio was about to hang, so the gang stepped in and rescued him.  As for Groggy, definitely the smartest member of the gang and the obvious successor to Indio, I figure he was biding his time all along. 

I figure.   Cool

Agreed. Although, I'm not completely certain Groggy was the 'obvious successor' if there is someone like Nino. As for why he was sent to prison, who knows. He's Indio...he could have done about anything really.

Nice username by the way. ;-D

I just assumed Tomaso turned him in for a past crime.

Hmm, I thought I had read somewhere that Tomaso was a past gang member of his. He's also often labeled as 'El Indio's Traitor' as well on cast lists, so that is another reason I've thought he used to serve the gang. He technically wouldn't be a traitor to Indio unless he served him in the past.

Yes. That doesn't in any way contradict what I said.

Tomaso's baby daughter was Francesca Leone, daughter of the great man and now a painter.

Good topic that has never been brought up before BRAVO!

4 ideas.

1) he may have been arrested in a state where he had done nothing that deserved capital death

This one is reasonable for sure

2) they may never have found any sufficient evidence to execute him (not as smart as Frank, but smarter than Tuco)

and this one also, If he is actually a Mexican citizen they may not be able to execute him.

3) may be he was just waiting to be hanged (execution planed a few days after his escape or something)

possibly.

4) he may have been arrested in a state where capital sentence was abolished (were their such states at the time?)

This one no, I go back to #2

I actually brought up a similar topic about Indio in Jail and why it took 18 mths to spring him....here
