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.”............."

Driving with a suspended license is certainly not comparable to murder. And honestly, I don’t support filling our jails with nonviolent offenders.

She was on probation for a DWI. It may have been reduced to another offense but she was still on probation for three years. If she violates her probation (which she did two times) she could have received the entire sentence. I think she got off pretty easy.

This situation is just plain stupid. The cop let her out. Why did she get additional time?

She wasn't given additional time. And Bacca is in contempt of court.

Citing 'Medical' Reasons, Sheriff Sends Paris Hilton Home to Finish Sentence

When she was sentenced May 4, Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer ruled that she would not be allowed any work release, furloughs or use of an alternative jail or electronic monitoring in lieu of jail.

I did not say a great family, I just said they were nice.In those circles there can be some pretty nasty people but I guess her family is not, that does not make them parents of the year. I certainly cannot claim parent of year either, I just hope this will be a wake up call for her and she can turn her life around.

I did ask my friend that same question regarding money. She said she yearns a lot of her money. She gets paid big bucks to appear at functions, paid to wear to wear a designers clothes, and lets not forget that hamburger commercial she was in. In other words she gets paid for being Paris. I also think she does some clothing or handbag designing. Her parents must have done something right because her sister seems to be OK.

I don’t know, but a panic button might be a good idea for a high profile prisoner who faces death and rape threats... I’ve visited jails in outreach programs and trustees were in all the halls. The cost of that button versus the costs of the lawsuit that would follow a successful attack is quite small.

Very good point about the lawsuit. Personally, I think she belongs in a psych ward, to be examined by a shrink other than her regular one. And for godssakes, take away her car keys!

Fox news channel’s Red Eye at 2-3 AM this morning. A panel of columnists and comedians, really funny. Big topic was, of course, Paris, and what her medical condition could possibly be. I laughed so hard I cried. They wondered if she had herpes and had lost control of her bladder...having a nervous breakdown. Would she hang herself with her hair extensions? How would she write in her diary when they’d probably deny her a pen or pencil.

You just might be right, and it might also save other lives, too...people she could have hit with her car. The son of a friend of mine is serving a long, long jail sentence for speeding and slamming into another car...young family. The wife and unborn child died. You can’t imagine the grief. But Paris isn’t 18 or 20, she’s 26, well past time to grow up.

Paris doesn’t have a “panic button”.

They talked about this button on FNC yesterday. She is in one of just a few rooms that DOES have a button, and she kept pressing it. They said she was disrupting the guards by doind so. She pressed it a lot, I guess, based on the conversation.

Not really, just a person who is interested in seeing that the law is applied equally. I’m more man about Libbys jail sentence vs Sandy Burglar for example.

Thank you for summing up so well what it's really about.

I'm not naive enough to think that wealthy people didn't get better breaks than poor people from time immemorial, but we used to at least PRETEND we had equality under the law. I don't admire hypocrisy either, but when people felt the need to maintain the pretence of equality under the law, there was a lot more equality under the law.

Starting with the Clintons it was made clear that most of the political class were above the law. Now most famous people seem to think they should be above the law, too.

I have no resentment against wealth, fame, or power--only the misapplication of it.

She being kept away from the general population in a large room. It’s a better room than solitary. They compared it to a motel 6 yesterday.

I’m ashamed to say I laughed at that comedy program on Fox, and at the same time had very mixed feelings. She doesn’t deserve public humiliation, visceral dislike if not hatred. The media created her, and we have nobody to blame but ourselves. She kept getting positive reinforcement, money, endorsements, whatever. Another thing is the group around her, most probably afraid to tell her to straighten out her life. Yet last week when she said she wanted to do her time in county jail, to be an example to other young people, I was proud of her.

As you mentioned, she traveled all over the country with that reality TV show, met people in all walks of life. Some common sense and kindness (not the right word, but you know what I mean), should have kicked in. But her role was to act the rich, spoiled darling, and I don’t think anyone encouraged her to be Oprah. Where’s the fun and ratings in that?

Just as a disabled or mentally handicapped prisoner is going to require special handling, someone famous is NOT “just like everyone else”<<<<<<<

There are plenty of disabled and mentally handicapped people in jail. In the case of Hilton, she has spent the recent years of her life playing to the media, virtually daring them to photograph her breaking the law. I’m real sorry it’s so traumatic for her to actually have consequences for her actions, but this may save her life and that of the potential victims of her drunken driving.

She didn’t just drink and drive, she was given probation, like “everyone else”, and defiantly violated her conditions at least three times. Being a spoled brat is not a mitigating circumstance to allow her to stay out of jail. The fact that she has cultivated her celebrity status doesn’t give her a pass. There are plenty of rich people who live quietly and go about their business, but she hasn’t chosen to do that.

She has passed “wild” and landed in disgusting. That doc that I posted originally came from a website called “Paris Exposed”. She had a storage unit and didn’t pay for it. Someone bought the contents and man! there is some garbage on that site. This woman needs some serious help. Some guy named Brian Quintana has a restraining order against her too. What a messed up woman!

Our jails are bursting at the seams. This is because we are filling them with people who drove without a license or puffed some mary jane. House arrest seems a good alternative, and it costs the taxpayers much less. If they violate house arrest, double the sentence and fine them. A net profit for taxpayers in that case.

This isn't about getting even. This is about a sick woman who manages to spread her social dysfunction through a willing media to the youth of this country. This is about a spoiled rotten, whoring woman who appears to be able to buy off the justice system. And this is about a media that can't get enough of telling her story.

Isn't it amazing the amount of people wanting to giver her a pass. I thought conservatives expected people to take responsibility for their actions. Where did all these bleeding heart democrats come from?

It is sad that so many enjoy the mistreatment of poor or rich. She is getting bad and many people that should be above liberal behavior are acting like savage liberals over this.

Liberals are beneath compassion, we are not, at least conservatives should not. They hate her because she is rich. Many would believe any of us to be rich... even if we are not. So, if we were in a similar situation, they would revel in our hardship.

Much of the world hates America because we are considered rich and love any treatment that destroys who we are.

This girl is sick and twisted, so we should hate her? What the hell is wrong with so many of us?

Great post. I agree completely. If I were the judge, I would determine exactly what I would do to her if she were an average defendant, and do that. I would not increase or decrease her sentence based on her money. We don’t have royalty in this country, and we are not supposed to be corrupt. Treating her with favor would be a form of corruption. This judge has to be able to look at thousands of other defendants, and their victims, and have them know that his sentences are fair and just. If he didn’t treat her like any other person, he would lose that credibility.

FWIW, MN, I think the only reason her being rich has anything to do with it is that a member of the great unwashed wouldn't have had the chutzpah to PO the judge. When was the last time you saw a poor defendant pull those kind of shenanigans in a courtroom?

If the judge threw the book at her, she asked for it.
