I assume they will pursue the death penalty

DEER CREEK — A semitrailer truck hauling 40,000 pounds of bacon overturned Wednesday on Interstate 74 near Deer Creek, spilling its load.
The driver, Rodney J. Kalman, 57, of Muskegon, Mich., was taken to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, Peoria, with what state police said were minor injuries. He was charged with improper lane usage.
The semi was eastbound about 5 p.m. in the left lane at milepost 109 when the truck drifted left into the center median, police said.
The trailer broke open as the truck rolled on its side, spilling its cargo into the grassy median, police said.
The scene, which still was being cleaned up at 9 p.m., did not block the highway, police said.
The load will be discarded, police said.

Death penalty? Putting him in gen pop and letting his crime slip would be a much crueler death. Would you want to face lethal injection or 800 wirecutters?

If the cost of my bacon goes up I'll jam the needle into his arm myself. Damn.

So that load of bacon doesn't go to complete waste, someone should drape it all over the nearest mosque in that state.

Will muslims now have to detour from this stretch of highway because it is "unclean"? If so we should start mixing pig fat in with the paint they use for the lines on the pavement!

RegT - ya beat me to it ;-)
Of course if there isn't a mosque convenient then it could be 'drop shipped' to any place in the 'middle east'.
