We need to deport Bieber to Canada

Richard-HeuleIf you have gone on to Twitter, let alone anywhere on the internet, within the last few weeks, odds are you have heard about this debacle with Justin Bieber getting a DUI while dragracing in a Lamborghini. If that wasn’t enough, his mugshot has been circulating the internet, showing off his terrible grin. To top it all off, his bail was set at $2,500, and he was released shortly after the bail was paid.

A bunch of his fans are now flooding Twitter with messages of support for the singer. It comes as no surprise to me that his fans would be in an uproar over this, but are they aware of the fact that he could have potentially killed someone while behind the wheel? Just because he is a popular so-called musician does not mean that he has immunity from the law.

This is like the case of the kid in Texas who didn’t have to go to jail after killing four pedestrians in a car crash. To be fair, he still served probation, but that’s a pretty weak sentence for killing four people. His defense claimed he was suffering from affluenza, which is where his family felt that wealth bought privilege and there was no rational link between behavior and consequences.

I think it is safe to assume the Justin Bieber suffers from this affluenza. However, being rich doesn’t give someone the excuse to endanger innocent lives and act like a spoiled little child.

But there is a light at the end of the tunnel, ladies and gentlemen. Yesterday on Jan. 29, a petition on The White House’s Change.org website went viral and racked up 100,000 signatures. What is the petition, you ask? It is to deport Justin Bieber back to Canada, which might actually be possible.

Right now, he is in the country on a visa called an O-1. He has said in the past that he has no plans to become a full US citizen. If that’s the case, then there might actually be grounds to deport him back to Canada. If that is the case, then I  hope that he gets the punishment he deserves.

I have to say that I’m not a fan of his work at all. I think although he can play his own instruments, it still doesn’t change the fact that he has let record companies damage his integrity and he ended up being their little puppet, putting out bad song after bad song in hopes to make the sales of music CD’s go up.

The truth is, he sold his soul to the corporate machine a long time ago, and now, he is trying to cling on to whatever shred of popularity he has left, whether it is good or bad publicity.

He’s trying to be the rebellious bad boy stereotype  little teenage girls fantasize about. He isn’t a good role model, and sure as hell isn’t a good person.

    I don’t like Justin Bieber any more than you do and if the law says the White House has to respond to the petition so be it but REALLY? Your comparing him getting a slap on the wrist for a DUI with kid a getting away with 4x vehicular manslaughter? People get slaps on the wrists for DUIs all the time yet somehow Justin Bieber deserves to be deported for it? You’re doing exactly what Justin’s fans are doing, your putting him on a pedestal and expecting him to receive special treatment.

      Sorry if I’m late replying to this. I just now saw it. I can understand why you would think that. However, I think that kid who killed four people while drunk driving needs to get the chair. The title of the article was created by the opinion editor, not me. I honestly don’t think we need to deport a untalented little shit just because he’s an untalented little shit. I mentioned deportation because he is here on a visa, and I wanted the reader to know that deportation is a possiblity. Do I hope he gets deported? I’m indifferent, but he should see some form of punishment; not necessarily deportation.
