Why Isn't Pete Doherty In Jail?

Fri Apr 21, 2006 4:43 pm

Why isn't Pete Doherty in jail yet, he was arrested again, 3 hours after appearing in court.  Wow!

Here is an article on it.

Er...because he hasn't been charged yet, perhaps?

What I'm on about is, he has been in court and been arrest so many times in the past couple of months, why haven't they locked him up yet.

Because with drug users like this, who aren't going out and mugging people to raise the cash, locking them up doesn't actually do much good. Much better to send them through rehabilitation and try to get them off the drugs instead. It's not a question of the famous getting off lightly, this is how it works. Sending such people to prison tends to be counter-productive, so they try hard not to do so. But there is a cut off point, and clearly patience is running out.

Just for interest, a lady very close to me  SmileD) checked him in at LCY a few weeks ago. She said he looked a mess and frankly stank. It would appear to me that this chap has little or no self control and needs some sort of psychiatric councelling. He may be a celebrity, but he's not above the law, and he sets an appalling example to younger folk.

Absolutely. So different to the examples set by the older generation as epitomised by Keith Moon, Keith Richards, John Bonham...  Wink

Indeed. Learned to do it properly, rather than faffing about with a half-arsed drug addiction. He's a total lightweight in the rock 'n roll hellraiser stakes.

Perhaps you should offer to teach him a thing or two ....  Silly

He's an idiot. He deserves jail time for being so stupid!

Lesson One: Read "Moon the Loon".

Lesson Two: Repeat Lesson One until it's sunk in.  Wink

I'm with Banco here, Pete a rock star like Moonie?
Moon would shit him!
Moon was about fun, not self pity.

The Libertines were good at first, but the second album was a waste of time, saw them at Brixton in early 2004, about the last time thet would have done a good gig one suspects.

Babyshambles-shite! Emperors new clothes writ large.
As they were support at the Hyde Park Wireless Festival a few days before Live8, Pete was very late, seemed to barely know where he was, despite his rather risible set being cut back, the main act suffered too from this.
I was sorely tempted to yell at him (adapted from a line from the ace comedy Peep Show), 'That crack's a bit moorish Pete!'
