Lindsay Lohan Serves Just Hours of 30-Day Jail Sentence (5 HOURS?!)

Talk about much ado about nothing.

Let me just say that I don't give a damn about Lindsey Lohan. I wasn't looking for news about her.

I just have to ask- WTF? 5 hours in jail after being sentenced to 30 days? That's less than 1% of her sentence! (5 hours out of 720(30 days) is 0.00694) Is that normal in Los Angeles? Honestly, why should she care about the law? It's apparently meaningless when she is involved.

The Silky Pony was right - There really are two Americas.

It’s just a 1 week reprieve. The whole thing is silly anyway.

We are no longer a nation that follows the LAW.

In my work outside of this country, people used to comment on the fact that the USA actually followed its laws and THAT was one of the major factors that distinguished us from other nations.

No longer.

She was given an additional week to turn herself in so she could complete a nude photo shoot for Playboy magazine.

First things first.

I know 2 guys that had small sentences delayed so they could complete obligations, one personal the other professional. It’s not actually uncommon. Everybody in the system knows 30 day sentences are a joke.

Corruption used to occur in smoke filled rooms behind closed doors. Whether it’s the president passing out billions in tax money to his friends, ignoring the constitution or living like a sultan on our dime, the public no longer cares. Lilo’s manipulation of the criminal justice system is a trivial side show compared what’s be done openly and without notice.

She has 5 jail terms amounting to a couple of days time served.

5 convictions...FIVE! and has served almost no time. Unbelievable.

This story is a bit amusing.

But the thousands of hardened thugs who are about to be sprung from California prisons because they’ve steered the budget into the iceberg will not be.

Will the LA jails soon get a drive up window? Can Lindsay Lohan get a fast pass so she doesn't even have to slow down while driving past the jail for her 12 millisecond sentence?

Honestly, why should she care about the law?

Why should we?

Frank Zappa said it best. "The United States is a nation of laws: badly written and randomly enforced."

Oh come now.

This is America! Celebrities are important people with important work to do! She probably has a casting call for a movie coming soon.. there’ll be script readings, negotiations, etc. Lindsay can’t be bothered with such trivial matters as serving a jail sentence for a criminal offense.

Not really.

Lee Baca isn't known as the "Sheriff to the Stars" for no reason.

He knows on which side of the bread his political career is buttered and it ain't with the common criminals.

Actually, I just read that she needed to re-shoot her Playboy layout as the first one was a complete waste of film.

I have a friend who received a similar sentence for DWI in college. He was allowed to serve on weekends due to the fact that he was a full time student.

On Friday he would report to the county jail with a stack of textbooks.
Might as well get some studying done if locked up.

The deputy would come into the room and announce that they had X number of bunks and would select who would serve.

They never selected my buddy with his pile of textbooks. For some reason they would always select some thugs to get off the street.
He still got credit for serving by showing up for jail.

They don’t have room in the jail for such people when there’s little room
for real thugs and criminals.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The only scripts she has to read these days are porn scripts. Who the hell wants her in anything...outside of porn? Even at that, she’d have to be disease free.

For the first time in history, Larry Flynt has turned down a girl to pose in his smut mag for being, "too skanky."

Yea, the whole edifice of "a nation of laws" is pretty well crumbled. I imagine the Solyndra funding and Fast & Furious will net Holder and Obama 2 1/2 hours in jail.

Not a single prosecution arising from the mortgage/housing meltdown. Not a one.

The judge needs to be thrown off the bench. She is not doing her job.

Is that normal in Los Angeles?

You must understand that mere judges can't be allowed to interfere with what is known around L.A. as "the local industry." Regular citizens get used to traffic jams, "no parking" areas in essential locations and many other abuses as elected officials bend over backwards cater to film crews and "stars." It's just a cynical game.

True, true!

But, in all honesty, she should go into porn. It’s not like she’s a female Robert Downey Jr.; she’s talentless.

Except for getting naked that is.

p.s. Are you going to have a 2012 US Senate PING list? If yes, please include me. Thank you!
