Animal Husbandry 101: From Wikipedia – “A mule does not sound exactly like a donkey or a horse. Instead, a mule makes a sound that is similar to a donkey’s but also has the whinnying characteristics of a horse (often starts with a whinny, ends in a hee-haw). Mules sometimes whimper.”

Clint Eastwood plays an unsuspecting 89-year-old mule in “Mule” (a good flick). But, he (spoiler) ends up at 90 in a prison garden raising flowers. Crummy way to end a life. But that was cocaine. 22 pounds of weed, though, is also a sizable load for anyone. At around $1000 or so a pound, $10 or so a gram, that is a good payday once it hits the streets. And, 3 and 1/2 million in cash was taken from the elder’s home. Not a piggy bank size. Maybe this family is just down on its luck, and things might not be what they seem, but being a popular and social family probably won’t save them this time. (Call Joe Askar, plead for an ARD.) As James Cagney said, “Never steal anything small.” (Ask Joe.)

A quote from Trailer Park Boys “The shit apple doesn’t fall far from the shit tree.”
The McDanel’s, a rags to riches story, now headed for the shit abyss.

Not exactly earned by honest, hard work. Illegal gambling, income tax evasion, bribery, extortion and now add drug running. great family story. They must have been muscling in on territory protected by our lowlife RICO squad run out of the court house. You no make payment we put you out of business. great news, more expansion for hard charging local Beaver County crime syndicates and families.

Related to the McDanels from Center Township?? Not exactly squeaky clean, either!

It’s time for all schools’ personnel to be subject to drug-testing as a condition of employment.

Will this popular elder and younger pair do any time? Probably not. Name brands and darlings of Beaver County seem to be immune to prosecution. A way out? Perhaps. A fantasy scenario would have the cases transferred to Loser’s care. He’d call off the State boys, as before, investigate himself, Stonewall for two years, compromise evidence, argue the cases in court, create a mistrial, and free the perps with ARDs.

The money buys the best defense! Thats the way it is! Believe me there are worse things going on with prominent people in this county! People passing judgement on families before proven guilty! Self righteous idiots.
