Speaking Of The “Drug War” …

Not everyone engaged in it is the sharpest knife in the drawer – and that goes for both sides.

In this particular case it’s the supply side, instead of the enforcement side, which gets the spotlight:

Officials say a suspected drug dealer who led police on a 90 mph chase in Indiana was arrested after he stopped suddenly at a Taco Bell parking lot.

Fort Wayne police Sgt. Mark Walters says 36-year-old Jermaine Askia Cooper told officers he “knew he was going to jail for a while” and wanted to get one last burrito.

Expect to see a variation on that theme in a Taco Bell commercial soon. At least Cooper was thinking outside the bun.

  • At least Cooper was thinking outside the bun.

    That was a shot to the gut, man.

    Oh… no, no…
    He was… wait for it… Making a run for the border.

    Okay, who’s got more?

  • Maybe he was

                     going for fourth meal

  • At least Cooper was thinking outside the bun.

    His cellmate, however, I suspect shall very much be thinking inside the bun, if you know what I mean

  • First  I would like to say that  Coop don’t eat Taco Bell and he has been a very good friend. The media is making a big joke about all this while Coop maybe going away for awhile. Times are hard all over and people are dealing with it in different ways .  America makes it real hard to find a job when government bailouts allow American bussiness’s to stay over seas. The bottom line is keeping jobs here so that the people that make the product can also buy the product. The drug war will continue to get worse if we as a nation continue to lose jobs.
