Last year, a couple of half-geniuses came up with a brilliant plan to get rid of the 2 pounds of meth they were carrying in their car: A four-foot long rocket
to be raised from the trunk by a series of ropes and pulleys and fired using the cigarette lighter as the ignition source. Since you're reading this, you can be sure the plan didn't work, but I can't tell from the news accounts where the plan failed; whether there was an ignition failure or moving-into-firing-position failure or decision making failure "dude, he's just going to give us a speeding ticket, no sense in shooting El Diablo's $145,000 in meth into the woods."
Our heroes pled out
recently, and some more facts came to light.
One of the defendants was employed as a "chicken catcher" and claimed that the $12,000 in cash found in the car was savings from his job.
So how much does a chicken catcher
get paid in a year?
Almost as much as a starting PD gets here, and more
than a starting DA gets. And chicken catchers don't have student loans, and don't forego 7 years of salary to join the chicken catchers guild.
