DPS: Trucker shoots self, drug stash found in cab

AztecWarrior13
LUFKIN, TX -- A Missouri trucker stopped by a Texas state trooper apparently killed himself before a load of marijuana was found in his truck sleeper.

Mason Burks was driving his tractor-trailer rig north on U.S. 59 near Lufkin Wednesday morning when a state trooper stopped him for a commercial inspection. Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Greg Sanches says Trooper Mike McClain stepped up to the truck window and heard a gunshot.

McClain took cover, and after backup officers arrived stepped back up to the window and found the 46-year-old Springfield, Mo., man dead of a gunshot wound to the chest. Troopers found 603 pounds of marijuana in the sleeper of the truck cab.

Hmm I guess he figured he'd dust himself off, before the cartel did themselves.

Why not just keep it cool and friendly instead?  Probably the cop was going to warn him about something simple, but instead 'el pendejo' got ahead of himself.

Stupid people are stupid.

Darwin, yet again, scores another one. Life must have really sucked for that guy. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
