Charlie Sheen’s Latest Behavioral Problem
This week Charlie Sheen trashed a room at the New York Plaza Hotel. An alcohol and cocaine fueled Sheen was enraged in the belief that erotic actress Capri Anderson had stolen his wallet. Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards and his two daughters were in a nearby room.
The cops were called to the scene around 1:30 am on Tuesday morning; the police found Charlie Sheen naked and incoherent. Sheen reportedly told the police he had been drinking and doing cocaine; Ms. Anderson (Christina Walsh) was taking cover in the bathroom.
Sheen allegedly offered Capri Anderson $12,000 for sex and the damage to the hotel room is estimated to be around $7,000. Neither Sheen nor Anderson was arrested; Sheen was whisked off to New York Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. A spokesman for Sheen said that he had an allergic reaction to some medication; only a naïve Charlie Sheen groupie would be gullible enough to believe that fairy tale.
Sheen has a long history of getting into trouble and is currently on probation from a lawsuit in Colorado. Shortly after this incident Sheen was off to California to resume filming of “Two and a Half Men” at the whopping salary of $1.8 million an episode; justice certainly is blind.
When Is Enough Enough
Will the Hollywood celebrity free ride ever end? Sheen is only one in a long list of celebrities being given a free pass; the public is well aware of the antics of celebrities like Mel Gibson, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and a host of others. How many second chances are warranted?
These folks have repetitive issues of drunk driving, drug charges and arrogantly missing court dates; added to this are behaviors that are not illegal but yet repulsive. Mel Gibson particularly seems to have a penchant for making threatening, anti-Semitic and anti-African American rants.
The Apology, Slap on the Wrist and Plea Bargain Just Won’t Do
These folks have been given multiple chances including trips to rehab, reduced charges, plea bargains, limited sentences and many times no sentences. Clearly treating a number of celebrities with leniency has only led to more poor behavior and law breaking.
Many of these celebrities are role models to young people. Left unchecked their behavior will eventually lead to someone getting seriously hurt or killed. The money they pour into cocaine only fuels the drug trade and they unwittingly fund drug wars that plague countries like Mexico.
The authorities need to step up to celebrity law breaking and treat them as they would anyone else facing similar charges; punishment should be within standard guidelines for the infraction.
I am not a supporter of censorship but people need to start boycotting celebrities that are repeatedly in trouble.
People make mistakes and in the majority of cases deserve a second chance; however, the time comes to step up to continual abuse of the law.
When is enough enough?
