A new meth lab has been found in Evansville, this time in the basement of a home located at 1730 Division Street. As usual, the two involved have mug shots only a mother could love and even then, said mother might deny being related due to the charges.
Not only was John Michael Hall and Kara Gonterman endangering themselves, whomever they sold the meth to, and their neighbors, but also a child. Originally that's what the cops were called out for, checking on the welfare of a child, which lead to the discovery of two one-off meth making contraptions.
John Hall claims he was making it only for himself, claiming it was cheaper than buying it. Hell, how could you argue with logic like that? Furthermore, Mr. Hall was wanted in relation to a robbery all the way over in Wichita, Kansas, although the Courier Press did not mention how old that warrant was.
The comments on the Courier Press website are understandably intolerant of such behavior in our city. These comments also highlight the underlying issues with such a drug like meth, which kills parents and leaves kids as orphans. If ever an anti-drug campaign was needed in Evansville, now is the time to start promoting the dangers and hopefully curb the issue in the future.
