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.”............."

Those charges are readily handled with today’s monitors...cameras everywhere. Medical wings are especially well covered.

And they are easy to defeat.

America loves its celebrities. But it would be interesting to see what the reaction would be if it were Rosie O’Donnell in the exact set of circumstances. Or Jeanene Garafalo or George Clooney or Alec Baldwin or Sean Penn......

Those people would be eaten alive by FR. The biggest problem here is that most don't know Hiltons list of legal offenses. Second, they don't know who she is and what she does. Being described as a "party girl" doesn't quite speak to her total lack of a moral compass. She is the ultimate proof that money can't buy you class and "polite" society has a rotten stink.

Growing up in that neighborhood, none of us had any hope.

You are an American Hero. God bless you. I hope your children appreciate the sacrifices you made to give them a better life.

My late parents immigrated from Hong Kong and left a life of relative luxury with servants, to being reduced to living near the Haight-Ashbury district in the mid-to-late 60's. Legal immigrants like us weren't treated any better than poor Americans...we were considered "trash" too. Nonetheless, my parents made sure that all four kids got a good education. Slacking off the studies and hanging out with bad company was not an option.

I hope Paris Hilton learns a good lesson in Reality Discipline. This is probably the very first time in her life that she's had to take the consequences for her actions. Better late (at 26) than never.

The sentence Rich Paris got by the sheriff was nothing more than a kindergarten Time Out.

Maybe it was more.

Sheriff Received Donation from Hilton Grandfather-American Pundit

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.

I know no one will get the chance to go after her, but there is no doubt more then a few convicts would love to hurt her, then again, some cons would love to hurt or attack anyone rich or famous.

Well, I guess I cannot argue that point. Some folks have a peculiar honor system in the can. They'll go after snitches, rival gang members, and people who stroll in there and talk sh*t. Paris is about as tough as vanilla pudding. There is no "honor" in beating up a basket case. Regular people survive by just keeping their mouths shut, and blending in. My bf was sh*tting bricks when he went in, but he's a cool guy and there was no problem. Same with my ex brother in law. When there was a race riot, the guards hid him, being white and all ;)

We never heard of panic buttons in cells before today. I can see why they'd be needed in certain circumstances, though.

Yeah, I got that part. There are 12 months in a year. I was just curious if it was after her DUI arrest or before.

Not specifically. The original report below. She was arrested Sept 7, 2006. It just says the contribution was made last year.

She doesn’t have to worry about that, being in a unit with only 12 cells and “high end” inmates. But I see your point. Yikes.

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

sigh..

Again, it is HIGHLY likely that the charge of which she was convicted follows the form of most other laws in that it will have a MAXIMUM amount of time/fine/sanction etc. In simpler terms, this means the judge cannot arbitrarily impose a "1 mil" fine, and the fine that the law does allow would top out at an amount that would be completely below her notice.

But hey, its fun to say that a judge is "whoring" for the media and pretend that we know more than he does about his job, huh?

They will readily snitch each other off in a second. Most of them are pathetic and were really rescued from the outside world.

The really dangerous ones are those who are transported alone or aboard an aircraft in small groups, unlike those who arrive en mass like common cattle on a bus.

Ahhhnold? Well, who knows at this point. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Hiltons donated money to his campaign.

The person I’m really surprised about is Sheriff Baca. That guy is cold hearted, so someone higher up could have tapped him on the shoulder. He held a news conference and I missed it. I’ll see if they show it on the late news tonight.

Aww! Not hot

Quite a departure from her "glamorous" booking photo, eh? The stark distinction between this and the confidence displayed in her booking photo leads me to strongly suspect that when the booking photo was taken, the fix was already in and she knew she would be out in a day or two. Her pictures before the Friday hearing on the other hand betray the fact that the family was caught with no cards in their hands.

"And after all the money we spent!"

I wonder where they all were when O.J. Simpson got away with it... I will bet most of them are black and hispanic and that they cheered when O.J. got away with killing a white woman...

Interesting speculation but irrelevant in this case.

We are dealing with the here and now...some of the prisoners who are in for violating probation and drunk driving, should suddenly get horribly sick and freak out, panic, climb the walls, then beg Sheriff Baca to send them home with ankle bracelets. See if "the Paris plea" gets them anywhere. I guarantee you, it won't.

Paula Poundstone, anyone with the last name of Kennedy, Cynthia McKinney, the Clintons and their minions, OJ, Michael Jackson, Naomi Campbell, Middle Easterners who beat their maids, Michael Schiavo, the preacher's wife who shot her husband in the back, the guy who played "Baretta"-Robert something?, child abusers, women who leave their newborns to die in toilets, did I miss anyone?

I know you're talking about celebrities, and I did throw a few in there, but the judicial system is a joke. Let's see what happens to cold cash Jefferson when all is said and done. Libby vs Burglar, anyone?

Sorry, but I get so burned up at seeing real criminals skate...

I did a couple of searches. Stuff linking Baca with Scientology, and it seems that his dept was accused of deleting Mel Gibson’s anti semitic remarks from one of the arrest files and saying that his arrest occured with no incident. According to one site Gibson taped a PSA for Baca’s relief committee.

She has people read her mail? Well there goes reading books to pass the time.

I don’t even think she knows how to make rules, much less abide by them. Lord only knows her true IQ or mental age at this point. A smart little bitch would keep her affairs discreet, not save receipts or prescription bottles, and doff her cap and tug her forelock in front of the almighty judge. She would also not drive, because she would have enough firing brain cells to understand the terms of her probation!

Joe Kennedy knew how to handle kids who didn’t measure up. He had Rosemary lobotomized after she was caught sneaking out of the convent school at night. She lived in a convent in Illinois or Indiana, drooling on herself until several years ago, when the Lord called her home.

“If something were to happen to Paris Hilton in the jail, the lawsuit against the state would be enormous.

I am certain the governator has his fingers in this. The state corrections code does have specific guidelines for the incarceration of famous and notorious convicts.”

Ok, but that doesn’t make it right or sensible. I’m not sure if you’re agreeing with it or what. Personally, I don’t think it should matter if the person being harmed is Paris Hilton or an unknown thug - all should be treated and protected equally. That being said, I wouldn’t feel bad for Paris if something did happen to her - I certainly didn’t when Jeffrey Dahmer had his incident. Not that they’re on the same level, but of all the people I feel sympathy for, they are pretty far down on the list. My God, let’s keep some perspective here!

Really? That’s weird. I heard that snitches got shanked, beat up, or whatever can be done to them. I’ve lived in some bad neighborhoods. I sold Avon to some gals who were in for mostly drug, check kiting, DV offenses. Funny thing was, they were the first to pay me for the little orders they placed. The rich women(I don’t discriminate-it’s business)were more trouble with bouncing checks, not being home, etc. Can’t say if jail saved the gals who did time. Drugs are the worst. You need more than jail to kick a drug habit.

Brrr, what you said about the really dangerous ones brought Hannibal Lector to mind. Yechhhh!

Putting someone who has no respect for the law under house arrest does no good, as they will abide by that order as well as they do other laws.<<<<<<<<<

LOL, years ago I supervised felons on electronic monitoring. I would get paged in the middle of the night if they left their designated space, and we’d have to go hunt them down (no GPS back then). One night we went out on a call and I decided to check on another person nearby who was also on monitoring. He practically had a line around the block of folks buying drugs/guns from his house. On his way to jail, he noted that he’d never realized how cool it was to work from home, much more relaxing than making deliveries.

I've had a few friends do time.

They had or have different personalities.

That said, from what they told me, going after certain people or types of people, does get you a name and respect. Normal people might keep their mouths shut, but some might want to attack a rich and famous person just to keep from getting any crap from other folks (I haven't even bothered to talk about the gangbangers because its known they always want a name).

One of my buddies who is a prison guard told me he hated celebrity (celebrity being defined as anyone in the media, not necessarily an actor or something like that) prisoners because everybody wants to kill them or attack them so they can be a name for themselves.

Funny story, he was also one of the guards on the scene when Colin Ferguson beat the living hell out of Joel Rifkin......the two of them had an arguement about who was the worst killer.

Depressing when you think about it....also Ferguson won.

Where she is now, she is only allowed visitors on Sundays and Tuesdays.

I wonder if she is the one that told the lawyer to NOT appeal or if her parents did. At any rate, somebody finally wised up. Maybe the lawyer told her that if they appealed, it could get worse.

Just read on x17.com that she’s supposed to go back to Lynwood after her stint in the medical facility. but the sheriff doesn’t want to take her back due to security concerns. Seems the other inmates are pretty p!ssed because they had to give up their cell phones, ipods, etc, lest someone take her photo. FGS, what the??? At any rate, appears her mental problems were due to the medical facility’s refusal to add any more drugs to her system in case of a negative reaction. Fox is back on the story now.

Last fall, Hilton pleaded no contest to reckless driving after failing a sobriety test. Subsequently, she was stopped twice driving with a suspended license, ending up back in Sauer’s courtroom. Despite being reincarcerated, she could still be released early. Inmates are given a day off their terms for every four days of good behavior, and her days in home detention counted as custody days. It appeared that yesterday would count as her sixth day.

http://news.bostonherald.com/national/view.bg?articleid=1005564&srvc=home

There is also an active poll there.

Do you feel sorry for Paris Hilton?
8% Yes
80% No
2% Not sure
10% Don’t care
