In a real life case of the tv series Breaking Bad, a New Mexican teacher turned to manufacturing illicit street drugs. After his job teaching science in a public high school, which likely failed to provide the teacher with a decent income, he chose to cook meth. And now it appears that the teacher (in New Mexico), nonetheless, has followed in Walter White’s footsteps.
A former teacher, John Gose, broke down and admitted to “breaking bad” in court Tuesday. Strangely, his actions were almost identical the plot of the incredibly binge-worthy TV series. Not unlike Breaking Bad‘s main character Walter White (who eventually became known as Heisenberg) Gose had a background teaching high school science before attempting to make and sell thousands of dollars worth of methamphetamine in New Mexico.
Walter White, played by actor Bryan Cranston turned to cooking meth as a way to support his family and pay his medical bills after being diagnosed with cancer in the TV series, Breaking Bad.
The real-life Heisenberg admitted to the crime after a traffic stop in Las Cruces, New Mexico. The authorities then found out that the 56-year-old was transporting a Styrofoam ice chest bearing rubber tubing and glassware along with the chemical ingredients needed for making a batch of Heisenberg’s finest. Authorities estimated Gose would’ve been able to manufacture at least one pound of meth from the chemicals they found in his vehicle and at his property, an amount worth approximately $44,800.
John Gose, a former science teacher plead guilty to manufacturing meth in New Mexico.
This case closely follows the storyline of the hit show Breaking Bad, but fans have noticed a different ending for Gose.
Before Gose turned to cooking, he was a science teacher for nearly nine years at Irvin High School in El Paso, Texas, in addition to teaching eighth-grade science from August 2013 to February 2016 at Camino Real Middle School in Las Cruces. Altogether he could spend more than 20 years in prison following a 60-day evaluation conducted by the New Mexico Department of Corrections. – New York Daily News
Facing prison time is a better ending the fate of Walter White in the show. And we cannot be the only ones thinking “did Gose intentionally try to emulate Walter White?” Or was this a mere coincidence? It’s still unclear, but one thing is for sure, the war on drugs is still alive and well on the streets of American cities and Gose is paying the price big time.
