Good to see it made Time not just a local paper. The guy has stage 4 Pancreatic cancer. Let him use heroin if he wants to.

We used to give cancer patients laudanum to ease their pain.

Who called it in to the cops? Stage 4 pancreatic cancer is about as bad as it gets. Even if they only issue a citation, itís not likely he will live long enough to pay it.

Something he said seemed odd, commenting that they would make him famous. I hope he didn’t report it himself for the attention/cause.

I think he's getting there. And why shouldn't he? Missouri seems to be stuck in the 50's.

Not to pursue gratuitous levity, but this whole vignette reminds me of the "stoning scene" in Monty Python's "The Life of Brian", where the condemned prisoner taunts his executioners, crying "Jehovah, Jehovah,...!"

What could the police conceivably do to this man? Arrest him? What grand jury would indict him? If somehow indicted, what court would arraign him? What judge would declare him to be competent to stand trial?
