The following is the complete text of Mel Gibson's statement regarding his arrest for investigation of driving under the influence of alcohol:
"After drinking alcohol on Thursday night, I did a number of things that were very wrong and for which I am ashamed. I drove a car when I should not have, and was stopped by the L.A. County sheriffs. The arresting officer was just doing his job and I feel fortunate that I was apprehended before I caused injury to any other person.
"I acted like a person completely out of control when I was arrested, and said things that I do not believe to be true and which are despicable. I am deeply ashamed of everything I said.
"Also, I take this opportunity to apologize to the deputies involved for my belligerent behavior. They have always been there for me in my community and indeed probably saved me from myself. I disgraced myself and my family with my behavior and for that I am truly sorry.
"I have battled the disease of alcoholism for all of my adult life and profoundly regret my horrific relapse. I apologize for any behavior unbecoming of me in my inebriated state and have already taken necessary steps to ensure my return to health."
Some will drink themselves to a stupor because of that, while others will shoot up a Jewish center.
The guy was only a .12 % BA?
What a light weight, the homicide dicks I worked with started their day higher than that ;^)
An apology for starters.
I think some of us have you pegged, too.
I'm willing to give him a pass, if he's willing to plug the jug.
"with wine comes truth" (not literal truth, but what the inebriate really thinks when his tongue is loosened).
you definitely have nailed that right on the head.....unfortunately I know that from experience.
I agree but would you believe it? Would it be enough?
Glad he released this statement. Guess he's human after all.
He apparently despises Jews.
Perhaps you admire people like that.
Let's go out. :^)
Gibson showed his true colors last night during his arrest. I argued with you about THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST and his portrayal of Jews. I stood up for Gibson to you and a number of my Jewish friends. Now, I'm sorry I did.
He is accepting responsibility?
Who knows? But he first has to apologize.
I seem to recall another quote about Jews starting wars:
"If international finance Jewry inside and outside of Europe should succeed once more in plunging nations into another world war, the consequence will not be the Bolshevation of the earth and thereby the victory of Jewry, but the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe." - Adolf Hitler, 1939.
Love Mel for what he is. We don't need to love his problem with alcohol. Put another way. Hate the sin, Love the sinner.
The "mistake" was driving drunk. In this he is no different than Patches Kennedy.
The Jewhatred is something else altogether. In this he is no different than your basic garden variety Neo-Nazi.
