Recently, Cage had been the center of much media criticism after telling reporters Australian doctors prescribe cocaine for sinuses, which is what a doctor gave him while he was preparing for his role in the upcoming movie, “Bad Lieutenant.”

Cage has also been dealing with money issues, and recently went through foreclosure for one of his houses. The actor admitted on television he was suffering money problems, which the media blame on his excessive spending and purchasing.

  1. While I not encourage any crimes or violence, I believe these Somalia Pirates have some kind of legitimacy doing what they are doing. Other countries are illegitimalately fishing in Somalia's sea territory and looting its resources. Other are making Somalia a dumping ground for nuclear weapon waste. So, how is that fair?
