Mel Gibson - priorities

Much as I abhor racism, isn't it a disgrace that it's Mel Gibson's outburst that's being depicted as the serious crime, not that he was drunk driving and endangering innocent lives. A breath test indicated Gibson's blood-alcohol level was 0.12 percent. California drivers 21 and older must remain under 0.08 percent. That's being ignored in the hysteria over what he said.

Where's the outrage at the real crime?

It sells more papers and mags if they concentrate on what he said, rather than what he did?

Obviously racism is a bigger issue that drink/driving - especially in California where the Rodney King episode has left scars on the image of the police in this area.
