Are you trying to say in this article that he had the right to Manufacture Meth due to a agind and sick mother?. Are you trying to say that he had the right to make and sell and run a meth ring because of things he did for the neighboor's in a helping hand?. Hell - we should all try this and see what we can get away with. What about the lives and the people that was effected by the manufacturing of Meth that he sold to. What about the feelings of their family(s) and friend(s) and sick Mothers and Fathers. I have Heard things in my day from people caught and convicted but this beats the cake sort of to speak..He knew what he was doing was wrong and he should not be whinning now..I remember seeing this on Tv and thought. Could that be mty neighboor next to me selling to my family and friends.

I do not think they were trying to use that as a excuse. At all sentencings you are allowed to show the good you have done in your life and have people send in charecter references. I think thats what this was.

If this was "the oldest known meth ring" why did it take so long to stop it?

I've seen what meth does in a matter of months. How did these people go so long doing meth and not taking on the scary appearances related to meth?
It took ten years to finally bust the kid who was buying the over the counter drug needed to make it. He turned state's witness. Everyone else is keeping their traps shut and taking the wrap for what the prosecution has on them. Without a witness "flipping" it is hard to break drug rings. Once they had the witness, it didn't take long at all.

Because that is BS, i grew up with these ppl in albion, since northwestern high till i left penna and they werent making meth on there own until at the earlyest 2002 or 2003, thats why they couldnt stop it, it never happened.

we were best friends, my kids grew up with ron and pattys kids, i worked on my cars there, meth wasent even a staple until 2000 at the earlyest in albion, i know this since i grew up in albion and was part of the drug scene since 1980, we never did hard drugs untill meth began being something easy to get a hold of, Making meth was not a common thing untill 2002 when everyone learned how to make it either by annie n lith or red phos and iodine, and thats no bull shit.

believe what you want, but alot of us in albion know better !!!

Maybe they weren't DOING meth, they were just manufacturing and selling it (possibly; I don't know). And you don't get the drug needed to make meth "over the counter" -- you have to get it from the pharmacist. The stuff isn't out on the shelves anymore, because pharmacies are trying to control the sale of phenedrine, one of the components of meth, by monitoring who buys it and how often. It's used in cold medications, but because it's also a key ingredient of meth, pharmacies have taken it off the shelves.
