Lots of times Drug Dealers will use something like this as a 'decoy'. They will give up a million, in order to let the SEMI drive right by. Lots of times it is already noted by good ole Johnny Law.. Sad but true.
I say they give the 87 year old LIFE in prison... uh What will that be for him.. maybe 3 more years before he dies? especially if he was on the product.. By the time he is found guilty he will be a gonner.. lol...
Now I am suspicious of all OLD GEEZERS of transporting drugs... Wonder what tipped the law off?? Perhaps him shakingly holding a straw? he he he Where did I put that straw??

They released him on $10,000 bond?? Sheesh, I would have split.
The old fart was pulled over because he was following too closely?? He must have forgotten his bifoculs. Remember Old man.. Objects in the windshield might be larger than they really are. Especially if you are right upon them.. Back off!! Bang Bang!!

legalize and tax all drugs. this generate enough revenue to save social security and the country's debt. fire all the burocrats.
the chinese held at one time that if you belived in the cause you wanted to represent you could run for any public office, regardless. but the canadate that lost the election was executed. this would create a motivated politician. don't you agree?

87? I'm surprised he was still driving, but running drugs? What kind of drug dealer entrusts that kind of load to someone with one foot in the grave and one on the gas peddle. Sounds fishy. I suspect Lady-RETTA is right, this could be a case of decoy duck,.. looks like old ducks can't fly straight, no matter how high they get.

WOW! He will likely get a life sentence. He was likely being paid to run these drugs for the "real" dealer. So some drugs and a drug runner got taken off the streets. But the monster behind it is still out there. some other drugs will replace these and reach the streets of America.
