Stupid Drug War Tricks

This one’s from my area.
Lincoln, Illinois veteran police officer Diana Short is arrested for growing marijuana and bail is set at $2,500, which she’s able to raise. Then she’s indicted for other counts of drug trafficking and her bail raises to $10,000. Well, she doesn’t have that much money, so she convinces her daughter to buy materials to make meth and tries to recruit inmates in the jail to make it so she can raise bail.
Knowing her phone calls will be monitored, she uses code over the phone, such as telling her daughter to gather as many as 2,000 “little white things.”
Her bail is now $25,000 and her daughter has bail of $10,000.
This is a story that shows rampant stupidity. Not only of this former police officer and her daughter, but of the drug war in general.
