Mel Gibson's on a path of self-destruction, it would seem. Just because he is a 'celebrity', I see no reason why he should be treated differently from any other person caught drink-driving.
His anti-Semetic and foul-mouthed rantings certainly say a lot about his way of thinking! Gibson's diatribe during his arrest certainly puts lie to his battling accusations of being anti-Semitic when he was promoting his 'The Passion of the Christ".
I reckon there'll be a lot in the movie industry who are impressed by his behaviour!
I suppose Gibson thinks why should he worry! He's got a few dollars saved up to last him through a comfortable retirement. He'd do us all a favour if he'd take up early retirement/redundancy!
