Paris Hilton -- Free Woman

In what can only be described as a cruel twist of justice, TMZ is reporting that Paris Hilton has been released from prison this morning, after serving only 3 days of a 23 day sentence. Apparently, she has been released due to a medical reason, but will be placed under house arrest for 40 days. This is just absurd. I feel sorry for those of you that are American, since your justice system has just been made into a joke.

Paris Hilton has been allowed to pretty much get off easy after endangering herself and all those around her by Drinking and Driving. Anyone else in this position would probably still be in jail. This decision is bad for the American Justice system and for Paris's career. Because if her medical condition can't be proved to the public to be very serious, I don't think anyone is going to want to watch another of her movies or to hear her music or to see her in ads, especially those that have lost someone to a drunk driver.

This is terrible. But that's enough of me ranting. What do you guys think?


  1. Hey Chris,
    I must say I totally disagee with the idea that the preferential treatment that we have seen Paris receive is going to change how people respond to her. People will still buy her products, watch her movies etc. This whole situation has become a joke, a very bad one in which we see how her position in society has allowed her to avoid much jail time. However people are not taking this seriously- look at the media for instance. As for the idea that people who have lost someone to a drunk driver will stop buying her products, that is probably true but that segment of the population is quite small and insignificant to her franchise.

  2. You can't disagree with me. (Just kidding) Your probably right. Most people probably don't care and given time people will only forget what happened. Which is kind of sad. We can only hope that Paris will learn from her mistakes, so that this is not just a complete waste.
