Hmm I smell preferential treatment:
Actor Mel Gibson pleaded no contest on Thursday to a misdemeanor drunken-driving charge and has been sentenced to three years on probation, prosecutors said.
He could have been sentenced to as long as six months in jail.
So he gets one count of DUI on his record and three years probation. No jail. Not even community service.
A friend of mine got picked up with a marker and he got more punishment than that. Three years probation. Community Service. Big fine. Intent to vandalize on his record. And he only had a marker in his pocket, he wasn’t actually doing anything!!! Oh did I forget to mention that my friend is Latino? So there ya go again with the bullshit 5oh.
Fuck Mel and *Fuck the LA County Sheriffs Department.

No preferential treatment my ass. And I want to see the video that the Sargent made at the arrest!!
Hmmpf. Its a good thing there’s all these terrorists around to distract you from the hypocracy of our democracy.
I guess its all right if you all white.
