Pete Doherty Jailed!

A victory for common sense at last! How the guy has evaded jail so far is simply beyond me. The whole charade seems to have played out like a rock n roll game of cat and mouse for what feels like an eternity without ever once someone actually taking some form of moral responsibility and standing up to the music industry to say enough is enough.

All in all, these 14 weeks of incarceration come way to late. The damage has been done. If you take drugs, drive under the influence of drugs and persistently give the courts the royal run-a-round but you have the power and circulation pressure of the musical and tabloid press behind you can get away scot free it. Your civil liberties remain unchallenged. Try explaining that to the disaffected youth.
