Michael Douglas Pleads With Judge To Show Leniency Towards His Son

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Michael Douglas pleaded with a judge to show mercy on his drug-dealing son, writing that he knows the burden of having a Hollywood legend as a father.

`I have some idea of the pressure of finding your own identity with a famous father,` wrote the son of `Spartacus` star Kirk Douglas. "I`m not sure I can comprehend it with two generations to deal with."

Cue the violins. Give me a freakin` break! We all have obstacles to overcome in life, but very few of us turn to a life of crime. I was born in the ghetto, but I didn`t turn to drug-dealing. Don`t we all wish we had Cameron`s "burdens" of being born to a life of wealth and privilege?

Grandfather Kirk Douglas and stepmother Catherine Zeta-Jones have also written letters to the judge on behalf of Michael`s drug-dealing son.

If Judge Richard Berman succumbs to this celeb onslaught, and slaps Cameron on the wrist he should be impeached.

Cameron is a hardened criminal, and if justice is truly blind, he will spend the next twenty years behind bars.
