Hey you gotta give a man credit, this is a unique spin on on trying to excuse bigotry. Mel Gibson isn’t a bigot, he was trying to commit suicide by insulting a cop.
The “Braveheart” star apparently tried to goad a police office into drawing his weapon and shoot by hurling anti-Semitic slurs after he was stopped for drink driving.
Apparently we mean that there’s no evidence for this except some friend of Mel’s is claiming this in a lame attempt to make us feel sorry for him. He’s not a bigot, just suicidal!
But a close friend has revealed Gibson wasn’t anti-Jewish but on a mission to die because he felt he had failed after his wife Robyn had left him.
It’s not that hard to die. You just drive in a wall. Or down a bottle of pills. Or drive into a wall after downing a bottle of pills. You don’t need to go on a special mission to do it.
Death by cop is a popular way of suicide in the US where people deliberately provoke police offices into using their weapons.
Yeah, and they do it by pointing a weapon at a cop or in some way threatening him. Ranting about Jews is not ‘Death by Cop’, it’s just a surly drunken bigot being himself.
Soon after he was stopped for drink driving and launched into his now infamous rant against the arresting officer saying “Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world”.
A friend of the actor told Hollywood author Peter Biskind that Gibson was trying to get the officer, James Mee, to draw his weapon and fire
So an anonymous friend of Mel Gibson is making a bullshit excuse for him.
If Gibson wanted the cop to draw his gun and shoot him, all he had to do was charge him. Or try to run him over. Or shove a hand into his pocket and scream, I’VE GOT A GUN.
Cops won’t shoot you if you yell slurs. They will shoot you if you threaten them. If Gibson really wanted to commit suicide by cop, it wouldn’t have been that hard. But he was just being a drunken bigot, not going through a complicated attempt at getting a cop to shoot him.
“Mel was trying to invite death by cop. I don’t think this was being anti-Semitic. I think he was trying to rile that guy into pulling out a gun and shooting him.”
Shouldn’t he have been calling the cop names then? Instead of making general statements about the Jews. How would he even know the cop was Jewish?
And was “sugar tits” his way of getting the female cop to shoot him?
Load of crap. That’s what this is.
According to the friend Gibson had said goodbye to everyone in the restaurant before getting in his car. “I believe what was going on that night was a farewell,” the friend said.
Yeah. Saying goodbye to everyone was clearly Gibson going off to die. Or just what people when they leave. Drunk people anyway.
Follow up question. When Gibson was making anti-semitic remarks to Wynona Ryder, was he trying to commit suicide by Wynona Ryder?
