On the front page of my Google homepage today, this is what I see:
TV actor Christopher Lee jailed for drink-driving
in Los Angeles:
Paris Hilton draws petitions for, against jail
4 weeks (about 120 days) of jail for drunk driving for local actor Christopher Lee versus 45 days for Paris Hilton. Nobody is kicking much of a fuss here about his jail term. He pretty much earned it fair and square, and honestly, so did Paris Hilton. Driving at 70 mph in the dark without headlights, 45 mph past the speed limit? Did you really think she didn’t know that she can’t drive on a suspended license? Did she think that her manager dictates legal regulations with regards to her suspended license?
I think what may be sadder is that her fan, Kyle Vincent, is being an opportunist, leveraging her situation and peddling wares to support “the petition drive, myself and the organizers.” Himself and the organisers? Hey aren’t they one entity.
I pray justice will prevail. There are consequences for sins, so are there consequences for breaking of the law. Nobody *should* be above another in the eyes of law. I’d also like to believe that money can’t buy you a nicer jail cell.
