Above the Law - Celebrity Edition
On Friday, April 22, 2011 the red-headed repeat criminal offender otherwise known as Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to jail for a FOURTH time. Yet despite her ever growing rap sheet that includes drugs, DUI, assault, probation violations and now thievery, Lindsay was released from jail just mere hours after being sentenced to 120 days incarceration for violating her probation by stealing a designer necklace from a jewelry store.
Even though Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner stated that Lindsay showed intent to keep the necklace she had stolen and that Lindsay’s conduct probably warranted a felony, the judge reduced LL’s charge from felony grand theft to a misdemeanor. Doing so drastically reduced the amount of time the troubled starlet would be required to serve for her crimes. This also effectively set in to motion the likelihood that any actual jail time Lilo could potentially serve would be cut short due to jail overcrowding.
So basically all that Lindsay had to do was have her overworked attorney file a quick appeal before the courts closed for the day, post bail and then flash her frequently used “Celebrity Get Out of Jail Free Card”. Lindsay was then away and laughing …most likely straight to the nearest hotspot for another weekend of major partying…
It could now take months before Lindsay’s latest appeal will be heard. In the meantime she is scot-free to continue to wreak her own special brand of hellish havoc upon society, which at this stage of the game is rather disgusting and just plain wrong.
Personally I’ve completely and utterly had it with the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and all of the other ‘above the law celebrities’ who gallivant around the world, repeatedly break laws and yet never have to be accountable for their actions.
It is high time that the Hollywood judicial system stops with all the silly wrist slapping and starts making celebutards serve their FULL sentences for the crimes which they commit.
If the jails are too crowded to house a celebrity that has to be segregated for their own safety, then ship their mamby-pamby lily white asses off to another jail that does have the room AND make those celebrities pay for their ‘special’ incarceration requirements.
Stop molly coddling celebrity offenders who continually break the law. Toss their asses into jail. Ensure that those Hollyhood celebutards have good and ample time to reflect upon the crimes that they have committed. And don’t let them out until they have served each and every second of their jail sentences. Otherwise, as Lindsay Lohan has proven, they WILL continue to commit crimes, make a mockery of the judicial system and waste taxpayers’ money.
ENOUGH is ENOUGH!
