Re "Did Gibson Get a Break After Arrest?" July 30
It's high time that moviegoers and the American film industry treat Mel Gibson the way he deserves, refusing to have commerce with him in any way. Two years after protesting that his toxic "The Passion of the Christ" was not anti-Semitic, following his arrest on suspicion of drunk driving he spews a "barrage of anti-Semitic remarks" and the slander that "the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world," according to a deputy's report. Gibson has apologized for his despicable behavior, blaming alcohol.
Most people who get drunk don't parrot "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion." There's an old Latin saying: In vino veritas, which means that under the influence of alcohol, a man's true nature reveals itself.
Gibson stuck his foot in his mouth and he should accept whatever consequences arise from his drunken stupor. Not only am I concerned about his anti-Semitic remarks, I'm equally concerned about the tactics of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and the alleged cover-up and handling of this high-profile case. I guess I'm just being naive to expect equal justice under the law.
