Seriously, When Is Someone Going to Take Away This Kid’s Car Keys

For the second time in 2014, the world sat witness to Justin Bieber's private meltdown. After two years of excusing and applauding his wreckless driving history, the long arm of the law caught up with Bieber after he egged a rich guy's house and one of his friends was busted for carrying his drugs.

Last night, the popular mega-star was arrested for DUI, resisting arrest, and drag racing in Miami Dade-County. South Florida seems to be a popular place for L.A. based celebrities to drive dangerously.

While gossip news sources and Bieber haters will delight in this news, the sad truth is our society that dismisses dangerous driving behavior is partially to blame for the Bieb's most recent meltdown behind the wheel. Consider his recent driving history and wonder how a sane society allows this young man to operate deadly machinery.

And this kid is still allowed to legally drive an automobile in this state? If the affluenza defense were ever going to be properly applied, it should be in this case. After all, why in the world should Bieber believe driving dangerously is a crime that anyone really cares about?
