Career Criminal ?

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us Goldstone, over at the World's Shortest Blog, has a $2265.35 bounty to the first person to ask George W. Bush this question in a public forum.
"How many times have you been arrested, Mr. President?"

Let's review the arrest count, shall we?

  • The first arrest of George W. Bush was for theft at a hotel.
  • The second arrest was for disorderly conduct at a football game.
  • The third arrest was for a very serious crime - drunk driving.

What percentage of the population has never been arrested? Do you know?

A fine point, indeed. At present, there are 13 million convicted felons in the United States. That should give you a healthy sense of how much larger the population of people who've been arrested is.

Granted, what's the percentage of people who've been arrested 3 times in their life? Much, much smaller; though, it's a bit of a stretch to call him a career criminal.

I've never been arrested, much less, 3 times. You're not condoning his actions, are you Jeffrey?

I'm old fashioned enough to wait for a court to find someone guilty rather than suggesting an arrest is a sign of guilt.

PS 'very serious crime - drunk driving'...as opposed to rape? Robbery? Child molesting? Murder?

Bill, have you ever been arrested?

I guess my point is; I've never been arrested and have never put myself in a situation that would lead to that. Now, can people change? Sure they can. No doubt about it. But 3 times? A little excessive, wouldn't you say?

To your other point.
Is drunk driving a serious crime?
I suppose if you, or someone you knew, were to be killed by a drunk driver, then it would be serious, wouldn't it. But are you someone that gets a kick out of seeing if you can make it home while under the influence? Is it a game to you?
