Why The Special Treatment?!

THE PARTY IS OVER FOR LINDSAY LOHAN....that's what the current headlines are reading in newspapers, blogs, and websites across the country, and now the word is she will spend ONLY about 2 weeks in jail. Now had it been an ordinary 'joe' like myself or perhaps even YOU...there would be no hesitation at the 'full extent' of the law to serve the same original 90-day sentence as Lindsay. So this particular blog today has me wondering why do celeberties seem to continue to get special treatment or only serve 1/2 or even 1/3 of an initial sentence while everyone else has plenty of jail 'time' to seriously think about the crime(s) we've committed? Does anyone else think there are two different systems of justice?!?!?!

As this isn't Lindsay's only offense or run-in with the law...she's been free on bail since missing a court hearing in May 2007 for a drug and alcohol case..on probation since August 2007 after pleading guilty to misdemenor drug charges and no contest to 3 driving-related charges, not to mention missing 7 classes since last December after her probation was extended for a year to give here more time to complete the class.

Now is it just me or Lindsay just doesn't seem to GET IT! To many get-out-of jail free cards translates to not taken her actions seriously, and perhaps foolishly believing that because of who she is, the system will just let her 'slide' by just one more time...if she keeps this type of attitude and way of thinking up, I'm afraid Lindsay just may RUN OUT OF TIME and be added to the list of celeberties who have died too young while on a collision course with life....

NOT FAIR TO THOSE WHO "HAVE" TO SERVE THEIR TIME. BUT I'VE "ALWAYS" BEEN TOLD LIFE IS NOT & IT'S BEEN PROVEN OVER & OVER TO ME. WE AS "ORDINARY" CITIZENS GIVEN A "CHANCE" DON'T PLAY FAIR EITHER. WE OFTEN CHOOSE BASED ON: LOOKS; SUCCESS; WHO'S CONNECTED TO WHO...NEED I GO ON. WE "ONLY" HAVE A "PROBLEM" WHEN THE RICH & POWERFUL DO IT; BECAUSE WHATEVER THEY DO THEY CAN "AFFORD" DO IT ON A MUCH "LARGER" SCALE.
