It’s actually kind of difficult to know how to feel when hearing of the passing of George Jung, who was also known as “Boston George” and on top of that, as the man that Johnny Depp portrayed in the movie Blow. The movie detailed how Jung started out smuggling marijuana and moved up to smuggling cocaine while making a fortune doing so. The difficulty lies in thinking that after being arrested, Jung did his time and on top of that it’s fair t wonder if apart from smuggling the stuff if he ever did anything else that was so uniquely horrible that would justify his vilification. Some would say absolutely and might even condemn Johnny Depp for having spent any time with him in the past to ‘pick his brain’ since those that break the law are, to many people, simply vile individuals that don’t believe the laws apply to them. Others might tell those folks to lighten up and take into account that there are varying degrees of criminal activity that are all just as likely to get a person locked up but aren’t nearly as equal in terms of the violence that comes with the act. The understanding of the law as exhibited by so many is often muddled beyond belief as people argue for one bit of understanding or another, but one thing above all is that Jung was working with the Medellin cartel, one of the most admittedly vicious and notorious groups in the drug trade, and assumptions were always bound to be made when this group is involved. Anyone that has watched the movie, Blow, will no doubt think they know a thing or two about Jung, but it would be wise to read up a little more about the man and who he was rather than take the representation given in a movie as gospel.
