Does This Look Like the Face of a Chemistry Teacher Who Tried Walter Whiting His Way Into the Meth Game?
HuffPo- William Duncan, a 42-year-old chemistry teacher in Cass County, Texas, is accused of cooking and selling meth, KLTV reports. Duncan was caught selling methamphetamine to undercover police officers in the parking lot of the junior high school where he teaches, Police Chief Alton McWaters told the station. McWaters added that he has known Duncan for a long time and was “real surprised” to find him engaging in such activity. Duncan has been charged with manufacturing a controlled substance and delivery of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone. He has been placed on administrative leave, according to the Houston Press. The teacher’s arrest has drawn comparisons to AMC’s “Breaking Bad.” Walter White, the TV show’s lead character, is a high school chemistry teacher who turns to cooking and selling meth to pay for his cancer treatment.
I’m just shocked it took this long. Who among us didn’t run through an internal pros and cons list after watching season 1 of Breaking Bad? I know I did. If I had any inkling of meth knowledge, I woulda been cooking the blue the second the credits hit. I probably woulda brought the idea to Prez about distributing it at the blackout shows. “Fuckin’ Foam and Barstool Blue sold out in AC!” I wouldn’t even need Saul or the car wash- do you know how easy laundering money would be with pizza delivery? Can you fathom how quickly this shit would hit the streets? I’d sprinkle a dab of meth on every pie and get you junkies hooked without you even knowing. But I don’t know shit about cooking meth because I’m not a chemistry teacher or a high school drop out like Pinkman and I’m terrible on Google. Frankly, it’s a little embarrassing that here we are, having just finished season 5 of Breaking Bad, and this is the first I’m hearing of a chemistry professor going rogue. This is the land of imitation, poor decisions based on pop culture, and meth. Bad day for humanity. Bad day for America.
