As reported in the Washington Post on Jan. 29, 2014, Justin Bieber is pleading not guilty to driving under the influence (DUI). Despite the facts that his consumption of alcohol in any amount is prohibited by his age, and his admissions of smoking marijuana and taking prescriptions drugs before driving, he will undoubtedly get off with a slap on the wrist. It would be better if we kicked his butt all the way to the Canadian border.
It would make a fabulous Valentine’s Day gift to everyone in the US if Bieber would slink back into Canada before his arraignment on Feb. 14, 2014. Our apologies to Canada for sending him back, but someone up there spawned this self-centered ignoramus and must be held accountable.
There are many addled teenagers around the world that hold Bieber in regard as a singer and an example of what they can aspire to be. It doesn’t take a lot of money to be a fool, but Bieber’s $130 million wealth is helping document the evils of too much money and too little maturity.
It is not easy to remove a person from the US once they have gained legal entry. The multiple run-ins with police, including egging a neighbor’s house, public intoxication, housing felony drug users, resisting arrest, and driving with an invalid license should count for something. Illegal aliens get deported for just being here. Somewhere there is one or more judges that can help establish a pattern of stupidity adequate to make Bieber an unwelcome guest in the US.
Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love and respect between two individuals. It is also a great excuse for a person to indulge their partner with loads of chocolate and a bunch of flowers while getting credit for cementing the relationship. Bieber does not reflect love of anything except his self, and he is doing that poorly.
Bieber sets a bad example for our children and is leading them astray by showing the extent that money provides a cushion between the law of the land and increasingly defying legal requirements to be a good citizen.
Before Bieber takes the downward spiral to follow in Lindsay Lohan’s footsteps, we should send him home to Canada where his excesses will be less tolerated, unless he can hook up with Rob Ford, the crack smoking mayor of Toronto. Happy Valentine’s Day Justin. Please go home.
