Paris Hilton: Free Once Again

Further proof that the rich are truly above the law, Paris Hilton has been released from jail do to health reasons, rumored to be a rash. Instead the LA Sheriff's Department will put her under "house" arrest for 40 days with an ankle bracelet. Keep in mind that the "house" in this case is a multi-million dollar mansion with all the bells and whistles. Kind of place most people go on vacation to enjoy and its her day to day life. Not exactly a punishment to me.

If this would have been done for john q average of average or even poor wealth this would be such a big deal but we all know that if we did what she did, it would be a fine and jail time. A "rash" wouldn't lead to house arrest but a unsympathetic shrug and if lucky a visit to the prison doc.

If the press wasn't as lazy as they are now, what they should be doing is following the money. Clearly someone was paid to help pave the way for Paris' freedom.
