Not gonna happen

In Yahoo Headlines today, Prosecutors want Paris Hilton in jail.

As much as we'd all love to see this, it's not going to happen. Which truly pisses me off and I'll tell you why.

Going to the closet and pulling out my soapbox.

~ "Hilton, 26, pleaded no contest in January to reckless driving stemming from a Sept. 7 arrest in Hollywood. She was sentenced to 36 months probation, alcohol education and $1,500 in fines." She's a Hilton, for crissakes. They couldn't come up with a more expensive fine than $1500. That's chump change.

~ "She was pulled over by California Highway Patrol on Jan. 15. Officers informed Hilton she was driving on a suspended license and she signed a document acknowledging she was not to drive, according to court papers."..."Hilton's spokesman, Elliot Mintz, said at the time she wasn't aware her license was suspended". So what the hell did she think she was signing? Her autograph for the cops kids?

~ "Prosecutors say by signing the document after the first incident Hilton knew she was not allowed to drive." Well, duh. She's not only blonde, but she plays it up to the hilt, hoping to get by.

~ "They also note that as of April 17 she had yet to enroll in the alcohol education program." Did I mention that this is Paris Hilton? She wouldn't be caught dead going to a lowly alcohol education program. Unless it was held inside a store on Rodeo Drive, that is.

So they want her to do jail time because "she was pulled over by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies on Feb. 27 for speeding and driving without her headlights" and therefore violated her probation. Understandable. Driving at night without your lights on? That's dangerous. She could've hurt somebody. So, the prosecutors want her to stay away from alcohol for 90 days, wear a monitoring device to see that she complies (that's hot!), and suspend her license for an add'l four months. They need to revoke it until she's 40. She's a danger to other drivers on the road. Revoke her damn license and make her get a friggin' driver. Hell, she can afford it.

"These violations demonstrate Hilton's disregard for the vehicle laws of this state as well as for the conditions of her probation," the court filing said. "This court should ... include imprisonment as a condition of reinstating her probation."

I totally agree and would love to see this prissed-out blonde party girl in an orange jumpsuit, but like I said. It's not gonna happen. It's amazing the shit actors and actresses get away with these days. Just because you're worth millions of dollars, does not mean you're above the law, people. If she were my kid, I'd cut her off.

"You had one chance to get your shit together and you effed up. You want to break the law? I'm gonna get all Disturbia on your ass. House arrest, baby. We're slappin' a pretty little bracelet around your ankle that you can accessorize to your heart's content, but you ain't goin' nowhere. I'm sorry, what was that? You're 26 yrs old? Well, honey, stupidity is ageless. And apparently it's something you've inherited from your father's side of the family. Why can't you be more like your sister?"

Stepping down off the box and putting it away.

I think I'm done now. For reals.
