America's Most Wanted
Paris Hilton may be shallow and annoying as all hell, but...does she really deserve to go to jail for 45 days? Hell no. I've been watching CNN, MSNBC, and FOX for the past couple of days, and every legal expert (not "anchor" but "legal expert") has said that the average penalty in LA for one DUI and then driving with a suspended license is something like 4 days. This whole thing is a joke, a dick-waving power-play between the LA county sheriff and the judge. Paris didn't send herself home on house-arrest. The sheriff sent her home. And then the dick-waving started, and she had to go back to jail, through no fault of her own. The whole thing is ridiculous. It's rather funny, with a schadenfreude element, but in reality, there's no point to Paris Hilton being in jail longer than the few days she's already served.
