Breaking bad ep 15 question - spoilers

Why is Jack Welcker and his gang so stupid, especially that simple fucker Todd.

 

They have 90 million dollars and decide to cook more meth. In doing so they shoot Andrea in the head to force Jessie to do the cooking, leaving her body presumably on her door step.

Why bother sticking around? And if you are going to stay in the business, why bring that potential heat on yourself?

Todd's hard on and greed. To people like that, even if they tried to just quit and live off that money, they'd get bored quick and be right back at it. Plus no amount is never enough Phone Post

Thats it. It almost isnt about the money. Its about being scum, its in their veins. Meth Damon is an interesting chap.

For the same reason people like Dianne Fienstien or Ted Kennedy or john kerry or john McCain do. They think they are just smarter, better, and can do what ever they want and not pay the price. Arrogant, power addicted sociopaths that feel nothing but pathological greed, anger, manipulative lust and selfishness.

Homer: "Ya know Mr. Burns, you're the richest guy I know - way richer than Lenny.
Mr. Burns: Yes, but I'd trade it all for a little more."
