Was A Government Employee Making Meth In A Federal Lab? Hell, Yea. (Allegedly)

Breaking Bad

Frankly, the government wastes so much damn time and money of ours, I don’t understand why you aren’t allowed to produce meth in their facilities.

It’s like, I’m gonna give you all this money every April and then you are going to tell me I can’t cook in any of the buildings you own?

The fuck kinda shit deal is that? Federal government, you should be ashamed of yourself. You are a bad friend.

Because good friends, when they find a friend making meth, don’t launch an investigation into their behavior. Even if their buddy accidentally explodes a building then claims it was because he was “trying to fill a butane lighter.”

A congressional oversight committee has launched an inquiry into possible meth production at a government lab in Maryland and is seeking building access records to track the movements of a former employee, congressional staffers said Wednesday.

The employee, who served as a police lieutenant at the sprawling campus of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, resigned July 19, the day after he was injured during an explosion inside a NIST building. The incident happened about 7 p.m. on a Saturday while he was on duty. Officials said that chemicals found at the scene were consistent with the manufacture of methamphetamine, or meth, a highly addictive street drug.

Yea, he was probs making meth. But whatever. He paid his taxes. It should be his right to do this.

God, the government is such bullshit sometimes.

In a statement Wednesday, committee chairman Lamar S. Smith (R-Tex.) said he was troubled by what he knew so far — particularly that the subject of the investigation served as a high-ranking NIST police officer.

Smith … wants to get data on the former lieutenant’s movements at NIST, perhaps via electronic lock records, so that his committee’s staff can determine how much time the officer had spent in Building 236 in recent months. Smith also wants to know what kind of background checks NIST conducts before hiring police officers.

Chill. The fuck. Out.
