Paris banged up ... again (Prisoner Riot Feared over Hilton Special Treatment)
The Sun ^ | 6-9-07 | EMILY SMITH

Posted on 06/09/2007 9:34:01 AM PDT by Anti-Bubba182

PETRIFIED PARIS HILTON mouthed “I love you” to her parents last night — before being carted off to face a hostile reception in prison.....[snip]

[snip]Prisoner number 9818783 was put back in her special cell — isolated from other inmates — amid fears the angry lags could RIOT over her special treatment.

Wardens even ordered a lockdown as prisoners — who think Paris pretended to be sick to con doctors — threatened a revolt.

An insider at the prison in Lynwood, California, said: “The women inside the jail are seething. They say if you’re a rich white girl you get special treatment.

“They are furious that while Paris had her own special cell with a panic button, was given better food and was kept away from the general population, she was still released early.

“There are girls in here with cancer, TB, and with MRSA. They aren’t allowed to go home and are treated by prison medical staff.

“The prisoners think if you’re rich and pretend you’re sick you can get away with murder.

“Many of the girls have been locked down in their cells all day because they are so furious. The jail is full of screams about Paris.

“Prison bosses fear this could simmer over into violence.”

Ex-inmate Lisa Caprie said she suffered a nervous breakdown inside but was kept there.

She said: “We heard Paris was treated like the Queen of England. It’s not fair. My husband fought to get me out when I had a breakdown but they didn’t listen.”

And Elana Lamb, set free with an ankle tag, said Paris made a nuisance of herself by repeatedly pressing a medical alert button.

Lamb, 38, said: “She was just whining, complaining she was cold and hungry.”............."

I agree with you. It’s astounding that a twenty-six year old would be crying for mommy. That should follow her for the rest of her days.

If Martha Stewart can do it, I’m sure Paris can.

Yes, and Martha Steward showed tremendous class when she did it too. Paris has shown herself to have no class at all.

They had about 8 items and could have gone through the quick check out.

The Catholic spiritual life has this idea that you atone for your sins on earth. If you are presented with a difficult situation, you endure it to atone for your sins. You might even go so far as to choose to stand in the regular Wal-Mart line rather than go to the quick checkout line.

That's what the nuns were doing.

A sane Judge would of fined her $1 mil or sentenced her to 200,000 hours of community service rather then inflict this circus on the jail.

23 years of community service?

The people paying the price for this media grandstanding from the Judge here are the guys that got to try an run that jail. Just so a bunch of pathetic losers can sit around read junk media reports and feel all good and macho for "getting even with that rich bi'ch"

From another source...

Did family money buy Paris Hilton a temporary get-out-of-jail card?

Sheriff Lee Baca, the Los Angeles law-enforcement official who ordered Hilton released from jail after serving only three days in her 45-day sentence, accepted a $1,000 campaign donation last year from William Barron Hilton—Paris's grandfather. That contribution constituted the maximum amount allowable under California campaign rules.

Baca has come under heavy fire for deciding to let Hilton serve out the remainder of her sentence at home, in apparent defiance of the orders given by the judge who sentenced her last month. Baca has said that Hilton was suffering from a "medical condition," an explanation that has not fared well under scrutiny. This afternoon, Judge Michael T. Sauer ordered Hilton back to jail. She reportedly left the courtroom screaming "It's not right! Mom!"

In office since 1998, Baca has cultivated close ties to the Hollywood community. Others who donated money to his campaign last year included Rupert Murdoch, Les Moonves, Ron Meyer, Brad Grey, Steven Segal, and Burt Bacharach. He was assailed last year over a claim by the Sheriff's Department that Mel Gibson had been arrested without incident, when the star had actually spewed anti-Semitic statements after getting pulled over for drunk driving. It soon emerged that Gibson had taped a public service announcement for Baca's relief committee.

Baca has not yet responded to a request for comment.

Hmm special favors for campaign cash... nawwww, not in America.

The simple fact of the matter is if she were NOT famous her lawyer and the prosecutor would of plea bargained this case and she would of spent little or no time in jail.

She got a plea bargain. She got probation, loss of driver’s license, and she had to take an alcohol education course (since she obviously know how to drink, presumably about the downsides thereof). She violated her probation repeatedly, didn’t show up for the course. She’s continued to drive drunk, with the possibility of injuring or killing someone, with her license revoked. She refuses to actually take the light punishment that she was handed, now she gets something more severe.

Learn the facts of a situation before you comment on it.

A wise leader would have said, "I'm happy that this troubled young woman is able to serve justice under the aid of her natural family. I want all other such prisoners the same opportunity. Perhaps we can find volunteer citizens who will donate money to pay for the tracking anklet that similar obviously-not-really-dangerous-to-society traffic violators but repeat offenders will wear."

Rev Al Sharpton is not this wise leader. He does not believe in Mercy.

Because of comments that poke at the obvious fact that a white girl who's family has a lot of money are going through a tough time, Rev Al Sharpton chose not to extend similar mercy to other families who are not as rich or white, but to demand "justice" for all law breakers. Yes, she broke the law several times. Yes, she deserved jail time AND she did, in fact, go to jail. But there are worse criminals than repeat traffic violators.

When words are spoken of your or my appearance or economic viability in such a manner, they aren't meant as means to find common ground. These words divide. When Rev Al Sharpon expresses words like this, they are a threat of violence--especially in cities known to have violent riots when the population is stirred up over supposed "racial" differences.



For example, Rodney King & OJ Simpson.

Because Rev Al Sharpton choose to divide us, he is using natural difference as unnatural divisions. Rev Al Sharpton has split from the message of Christianity. He is also unqualified as a leader who might bring others to a common goal. He is self-serving with the interest of holding others to a standard that he won't accept for himself. He holds us prisoner to our appearance and economic background.

What is race, Mr. Sharpton?

If a man as white as a lily leaf in a snow storm conceive a child with a woman as dark as chocolate during a moonless midnight...what is the race of the child? Human race, Mr. Sharpton. The baby is a human of the race "human". It's not about appearance and neither is Justice or serving the law.

If a rich woman falls in love with the young penniless man cleaning her pool and they have a child, how different is that child from a very poor couple producing children with no inheritance, Mr. Sharpton? How different is that child from a couple so rich they don't know what "poor" means, Mr. Sharpton? The answer, Mr. Sharpton is that there's no difference. Children are children. It's not about economic background but about Natural Law and the nurture of Natural Family over artificial environment of self-imposed and godless society. What and who are you serving, Al?

But because you are not merciful, Mr. Sharpton, comments like yours from a well media-represented threatening inciteful position, you have guaranteed ZERO sympathy for your "constituents" of the supposed background you seek to represent. In fact, the very super wealthy you have managed to isolate from their family are in a very strong position to not buy the tracking anklets that they could have funded for obviously not-so-dangerous traffic violators, but will fund the "needed" prisons for "justice" that you, Mr. Sharpton, want EVERYONE to serve.

Congratulations Al. You could have guaranteed family time with slightly restricted freedoms for troubled individuals in our society. You could have extended mercy for people who need the loving bonds of family and not meaningless numbing wards of the state. But instead, you shackle people to an overburdened system. This story of a troubled young girl that burns easily in the sun who also comes from a hard working self-made super rich family wasn't about "justice". This story had to be about you, Al.

And here's your legacy, Al. You've managed to put an extremely wealthy family in the position of looking upon anyone with a slightly darker tan and with a slightly smaller paycheck (which is almost all of us) as a potential predator who will jealously enslave them to the whim of a mob and an overtaxed secular social machine. Not only are the Hilton's super wealthy, Al, but they make HOTELS. How hard is it for the Hiltons to shift gears from making opulent hotels to slightly higher than the lowest bidder prisons to house ALL the law breakers like the people you think you represent, Al?

Satan, wasn't this in your plan from the beginning?

Do you think that we wouldn't see through it? Are traffic fines going to be opportunity for you to split natural families and put us into penal colonies segregated from the Graces of a real Church?

Let's just look at the future of traffic violators? Have you had your inspections? Do you have insurance? Did you renew your license? Are you driving 2 mph over the speed limit? Is your left speaker out?

NYC Mayor Pushes Traffic Fee Proposal Friday June 8, 2:39 pm ET By Verena Dobnik, Associated Press Writer NYC Mayor Cites 'Inconvenient Truths' of Congestion, Pollution in Pushing Traffic Fee Plan

NEW YORK (AP) -- Traffic congestion and devastating pollution are among the "inconvenient truths" of our age and could be eased by imposing pay-to-drive fees on Manhattan motorists, Mayor Michael Bloomberg told a legislative panel Friday.

Bloomberg, who normally takes the subway to work, told the lawmakers he got stuck in traffic three times on his way to the special hearing.

His remarks were greeted by a roaring ovation from supporters who included environmentalists in bright green T-shirts handing out fresh green apples before the hearing.

"The threats to our city, and our planet, are inconvenient truths that we can no longer avoid facing, and that we can no longer wait for Washington to confront," Bloomberg said, referring to the title of Al Gore's Oscar-winning global warming documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth."

Under Bloomberg's proposal, cars entering Manhattan south of 86th Street would be charged $8 per day, and trucks $21. Under a three-year pilot program, the fees would be collected only during the worst traffic hours, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Two major roadways flanking the east and west sides of Manhattan, FDR Drive and the West Side Highway, would be exempt.

Some lawmakers in the city's outer boroughs and bedroom communities do not support the so-called "congestion pricing," saying it would punish many drivers.

"This is a tax on middle-class people," said state Assemblyman Richard Brodsky, a Westchester Democrat who chairs one of the committees that held the joint hearing. "This will stop the Chevrolets from coming in, not the BMWs."

The mayor's plan got a boost Thursday from Gov. Eliot Spitzer and U.S. Transportation Secretary Mary Peters, who announced that New York is one of nine semifinalists to receive federal funds to fight traffic jams.

"This plan would keep the city that never sleeps from becoming the city that never moves," Peters said of the proposed fees.

The city would become the first in the nation to adopt a congestion pricing plan of this magnitude. The proposal is similar to a system that London has used since 2003, and government officials there say it has significantly reduced congestion.

It is part of an ambitious series of environmental proposals from Bloomberg in recent months, including converting the entire taxi fleet to hybrid vehicles, replacing light bulbs with more efficient ones and a goal of a 30 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2030.

Backers say the fee plan would cut traffic jams and pollution while generating money for mass transit projects -- nearly $400 million in its first year alone.

Environmentalists have applauded the plan, but it would have to be enacted by the state Legislature, making the support of lawmakers from outer boroughs and bedroom communities around New York critical to its success.

The mayor pointed out that on Friday, like many warm-weather, high traffic workdays in New York, a state air-stagnation advisory was in effect not only for Manhattan, but also for surrounding counties on Long Island and Westchester County.

In addition, Bloomberg said, four times as many New Yorkers are hospitalized for asthma as the national average.

He said such facts are "a reminder that when idling cars and trucks stack up on our roads and at our tunnels and bridges, they produce more than just ulcers and hair-trigger tempers," Bloomberg said. "They pump deadly pollution into the air that we and our children breathe."

In addition, he said, the hours lost in traffic rob the economy of work hours.

Bloomberg said the plan has the support of more than 80 civic, labor and political groups. The plan also appears to be gaining momentum from influential state leaders in Albany.

Spitzer said he would urge lawmakers to support the plan so that New York would qualify for the federal funds outlined by Peters on Thursday.

The other cities competing for a total of $1.1 billion in federal funds are Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Miami, San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle. Peters said that up to five cities will split the money, and the winners will be announced by mid-August.

Spitzer said New York would ask for $500 million -- almost half the federal money that will be available under the Department of Transportation's Urban Partnership program. Under the plan, a network of cameras would capture license plate numbers and either charge a driver's existing commuter account or generate a bill to be paid each time.

Commuters who already pay a toll to come into Manhattan via tunnels and bridges could apply that against the new fee. For example, a person already paying a $6 toll to go through the Lincoln Tunnel would be charged an extra $2 under the plan.

Senior citizens who oppose the plan held a news conference at a Manhattan hospital, one of the places they said they must sometimes drive to.

"I had a friend I had to take in for radiation every day," said Robert Goldberg, of Brooklyn. "There was no way he could take the subway."

Agreed. I would love to see a news network that excludes entertainment news from their coverage. It isn't real news, anyway, and would allow more time for coverage of the news that truly matters to people's lives. Fox could have been this network, but sadly it is going downhill.

Are you a psychic or something? I rant about this at least once a day to my husband! He says we should just get rid of the TV, since there's nothing on there of any substance anyway.

I'm with you - I long for a REAL news network - for REAL adults that don't watch Entertainment Tonight. FOX started out good - but I don't watch it much anymore - too fluffy for my taste.

We have similar childhoods. I was born in Newark. My parents kept gradually moving away, then to PA and finally to CA. I saw a whole city burn down while young. I remember a whole bunch of people on the border of Irvington with guns and knives to prevent that from coming to us. A race riot in my HS when they tried to bus inner city kids in. The bus left with no unbroken window. A bad time to grow up.

We survived that crap. You joined the MC and I joined the AF in CA to see what other people in other countries are doing. Just the same basically.

I used to feel the same way you do about the better life that people seem to have on the outside of the inner city wastelands. Better schools, better roads, etc.

Then I realized how much extra tax money is spent on extra police and other infrastructure just to keep the people in thug area from killing each other, and to deal with the more expensive aftermath of dealing with the higher concentrations of violent crimes. When you look at that angle you realize that basically the ‘burbs get roughly the same tax dollar attention as the inner cities, but since the people living out in the burbs aren’t trying to kill each other as much they get to spend that money on better teachers, building upkeep, and stuff like that.

Now, I am not addressing the supposedly better treatment Paris got. That’s not really pertinent to my point about people complaining about the better facilities in the outskirts.

My sense is you weren’t real impressed.

How is she a racist? Did she call you a honky?

With all her money, why didn't she - a LONG time ago - just hire a chauffeur to drive her wherever she wants to go?

A chauffeur solves not just one of her problems here, but solves both problems:

I am not a celebrity watcher, but I have have been praying for her for about 3 years. I don't know why, I just felt moved to.

About 2 years ago, I saw a small Christian band member talk about an encounter he had with Paris in Austin, Texas. She and the crew were filming a Simple Life segment in a coffee shop where he was hanging out. He is a cute 20 something guy with a few Christian friends along. She started flirting with him and asked them to meet for drinks. He told her he did not drink because of his faith and Nichole Richie started teasing him. He asked if there was anything they would like for him to pray about. They just joked it off, but later, Paris came back over. "Are you serious about the prayer thing?" she asked. The guy was startled, but assured her he was. "Pray that I will be happy".

This story was told to a concert audience by "random chance". I take this as confirmation that I am indeed to pray for Paris. This week has been busy. I pray that she finds real joy, peace, and a relationship with Jesus.

Jail may just be the place for this to happen.

From what I understand, if she’s in a psych ward AND on suicide watch, she will have less “luxuries” than in her original cell. They have to remove anything that she might use to harm herself. “Sources tell me” (haha!) that convicts might even be stripped to insure safety.

The reason is why she is in jail. She thinks she is above the law and laws only apply to others.

I gave up trying to find a legitimate source for Paris and the panic button.

In county, everyone gets brownie points for good behavior. The worst ones aren’t in that particular facility.

So many famous people that get caught DUI or using drungs are alone when it happens that I suspect they are hiding their activities (or think they are hiding them) from everyone around them, including staff.

You are correct. I was ready to be arrested for erratic driving myself after hearing a black caller on talk radio yesterday in L.A. complain that if this had been a poor black girl, she wouldn’t have had the opportunity to go home.

First off, if it had been a rich black girl, sure, she would have. Like Nicole Richie (not sure if she is black or not).

Let’s face it. Rich is better than poor. You eat better. You have a better home. And, guess what, you have better lawyers. If it weren’t better to have lots of money, why would anyone want it? Sometimes the poor forgets that if they were rich they’d do the same dam* thing.

You better pull your head out of you butt and face simple factual reality for once in your trailer trash life. Your knee jerk rabid stupidity impresses no one here. The people paying the price for this media grandstanding from the Judge here are the guys that got to try an run that jail. Just so a bunch of pathetic losers can sit around read junk media reports and feel all good and macho for "getting even with that rich bi'ch"

First off, Baca is pretty well known for kissing up to the famous so he is the one that creates the problem of running his own jail, not the judge.

Second, I'm sure I'm not the only one that is tired of seeing your abusive posts to other people. You do a lot of name calling when your points could and should be made with it. Might be time for you take a little break from FR, FRiend.

Driving with a Suspended License?

Suppose you lend your car to a friend. You know that she does not have a valid driver’s license, but she’s just going on a short errand. For some reason a police or CHP officer pulls her over. New Senate Bill 1758 requires that your car be impounded for 30 days. You will face misdemeanor charges, and to get the car back, you will have to pay towing, storage and other charges which could easily add up to $1,000.00

Or, you received a misdemeanor conviction for driving on a suspended license last month, but you decided to do it again. You get pulled over for a traffic violation. Under new Assembly Bill 3148, your car will be impounded, and possibly forfeited and sold by the state. These are a few of the strict new California laws which took effect January 1, 1995.

If it was me, they would have taken my car.

Did she strike you as being a little....”off”?

Her behavior leads me to believe that she could be bi-polar. Unfortunately she reminds me of someone I know. When this girl we know is off her meds, look out. My son, bf, and I have discussed the possibility that this could be the medical condition spoken of. It’s too bad that Paris has been allowed to run amok.

Let quit with the hypocrisy. The simple fact of the matter is if she were NOT famous her lawyer and the prosecutor would of plea bargained this case and she would of spent little or no time in jail.

Her lawyer didplea bargain her case. It went from a DUI to alcohol related reckless driving with no jail time and a suspended license. Most of those also come with a requirement to attend a certain number of AA type classes. She chose to ignore the suspended license and kept on driving. We never heard about her taking any classes...special treatment??? Hmmmm???

“The fact that she acts like a five-year-old...”

Have you ever seen her show? I think she may in fact be borderline retarded. I’m sure she’s not capable of comprehending the meaning of the words “probation” and “suspended license”. Why her parents didn’t provide her with a driver, I don’t understand.
