Osment To Be Charged

The website TMZ broke the news that actor Haley Joel Osment will be charged with driving under the influence, along with other charges.

I see that people are yet again defending a drunk driver. I'd really like to know what people won't defend. I knew when I heard that Osment had been in a car accident that there was more to the story than just a car accident. But now people want others to feel sorry for Osment. Boo hoo for the "poor", "misguided" little boy. The rich brat apparently had nothing better to spend his millions and millions of dollars on than booze and marijuana. Yet, I'm supposed to feel sorry for an 18 year old man that has all the money in the world to do with what he wants, and he chooses to trash himself and his image by driving drunk? I don't think so.

You see, there's the problem with people in this country. They refuse to place blame where the blame belongs. This belongs solely on the shoulders of Osment. He chose to drive drunk. He chose to drink. People shouldn't feel sorry for him. They shouldn't excuse his criminal behavior by acting like he's a misguided little boy. That's probably exactly what got him into this situation in the first place. People probably never told him no in his life. So he did whatever he wanted to do, which includes driving drunk. He apparently gave no thought to the consequences of his actions. He apparently gave no thought to what might happen to others as a result of his actions. He's lucky that he only injured himself in this crash. He could have very well injured or killed others.

But as we saw today with Mel Gibson, this "poor" "misguided" little boy will get off with a slap on the wrist, a mediocre fine that is a piss in the bucket for him, a few years probation, and a stint at AA.
