Free Paris Hilton

After watching the latest saga in the Paris Hilton soap opera, Howling Latina has the utmost compassion for Paris Hilton and her family.

Top defense attorney Roy Black of Texas said on "Hardball" tonight that the original sentence was lengthier than usual and given by the judge to make a moral statement. "Just 'cause someone is super rich doesn't mean they can escape the long reach of the law."

The city apparently routinely releases female inmates from jail after they've served as little as 10 percent of their sentence for minor offenses. Add to that Hilton's medical condition which caused two jail psychologists, a psychiatrist and the sheriff grave concern and for crying out loud, how frigging bloodthirsty do we need to be before we allow a sliver of mercy for the rich, equal to the poor, my law and order Americans?!?

Apparently a majority of Gringos have never broken the law; or if they broke it, they were prosecuted and punished to the full extent of the law. If not, why begrudge grace for someone else?

How about all those law and order batwings whose battle cry of late has been, "Free Scooter Libby, no amnesty for illegals"?

Update musing: What would GOPers be saying if instead of Miss Hilton who was caught driving on a suspended license it had been the daughter of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia?!? You know, the same one who was recently popped for driving under the influence with three of her five children in a van.
