Hailey Joel Osment, the young kid from “Sixth Sense”, was busted for drinking and driving. Yeah, I know he’s underage and I realize that he did get into an accident, but still, as far as I know, this is his first offense, so why is he not getting probation?
Mel Gibson told off a cop — something I find totally appalling — and he gets a lousy three years of probation. Plus, look at the age difference. Isn’t it worse when a guy Gibson’s age (ie, someone old enough to know better) does something stupid — drinking and driving — then when an 18 year old does it?
Now, I’m not a person who believes in leniency for drunk drivers by any means. I just can believe the disparity between Gibson’s sentence and Osment’s.
