You mean Michael Douglas hasn’t asked a pardon from his god Barak?

Douglas doesn’t care enough, either way. He spent the formative years of his son’s life getting laid.

Fifty years ago Loretto, PA was best known for a big convent full of nuns. Today best known for a big prison full of meth-heads. This is not progress.

It would be a shame if something like that happened to O.J. Simpson.

Cameron was seriously injured this fall after an unidentified crime-family captain put a $100 bounty on him for being a "rat"

A whole C-note, eh? Pretty low-budget rat...

So the younger Douglas is a TWO-time convict? It says he’s in prison “for selling crystal meth, then smuggling heroin behind bars for himself.” What was he PREVIOUSLY in for, such that he could get a subsequent conviction for smuggling heroin into prison for himself?

From Wikipedia:

Douglas has been arrested for drug offences at least three times. In 1999 he was found with cocaine in Manhattan and was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance.[1] The charge was dropped after he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of disorderly conduct. In 2007 he was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance after police officers found a syringe with liquid cocaine in a car he was in. On July 28, 2009, Douglas was arrested by the Drug Enforcement Administration for possession of 0.5 pounds (0.23 kg) of methamphetamine. Due to the large amount of the drug seized, Douglas was charged with intent to distribute.[2] The charge carries a minimum prison sentence of 10 years and a maximum of life.[3]

Thanks. I added “Douglas” as a keyword. Nothing showed on a search.

“He tripped”

Being a “waste of potential” in prison comes right after pedophiles, snitches and dirty cops.

A guy who wastes his parole and gets locked up again gets lots of bad attention from those who dream of having that second chance.

A guy who came from legitimate money and stupidly wasted it all is going to attract similar attention from those who never had his opportunities…

Mr. Conervative: I think something like that happened-just wasn’t reported.

The story says no one has been punished for the act.

I already knew that because Douglas is still alive.

I’m sorry, but unless you are selling to 8 year-olds, the idea that any drug crime can get you 10 years in prison is insane.
