Pistons guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope arrested on suspicion of DUI in Auburn Hills
On Wednesday, a player for the Detroit Pistons was pulled over for going 45 MPH in a 25. After inspection, police found that he was over the legal limit of 0.08 BAC. The crazy thing to me was that he played in the Pistons' game the NEXT DAY. Not much else substance to the article, but I was just wondering why professional athletes and top ranking officials (politicians, CEOs, etc.), who should be held to a higher standard, are constantly let off the hook for legal issues such as DUIs, while common employees can lose their jobs over these issues. I understand common employees are more expendable than the "celebrities", but it's a societal issue that really frustrates me. Any other thoughts?
