Just lock him up!

Can I be the only one who is absolutely fed up with watching the ongoing antics of the contemptible Pete Doherty? Over the past couple of years, it seems that barely a month has gone by without Doherty being arrested for something or other, and he has been in and out of court more times than some lawyers. Aside from amassing numerous convictions for drug offences, he has also been fined £750 for assaulting a BBC reporter, and has pleaded guilty to driving without either insurance or a licence. Now, after admitting to two further driving offences, as well as possession of cannabis, heroin, crack cocaine, and ketamine (how many habits does the guy have?) he has been warned that he may face prison, unless he attends a drug rehabilitation course.

Personally, I think that there should be no "may" about it. Doherty has shown himself to have a complete disregard for the law, time and time again. Indeed, on one occasion he distinguished himself by being sentenced for drug possession in the morning, and arrested for drug possession in the early afternoon of the same day. Really, the only way of dealing with people like this is to lock them up. And, preferably, to throw away the key...
