Is It Awful That I'm Glad Paris Hilton Gets Jailtime?

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
Heee! I definitely am feeling some schadenfreude! :

I can't stand when people think they are above the law (and note: I wouldn't be happy if *most* people were going to jail, but I *am* happy that Paris Hilton is).

to you Paris!

Oops, this would help.

Well, her lawyers could get her off....so again, the laws *don't* really apply to her.

I revel in being human. And sometimes that means having a fine sense of appreciation for the schadenfreude side of life. :

What's Jailtime? The new Kate Spade?

I think it's fantastic. I hate repeat drunk driving offenders. They make me crazy mad. I had to go to a family friend's funeral after he was hit and killed by a drunk driver when he was riding his bike to work. He and my dad were bike commuters together for years, we were close with their kids, his death had a major impact on how I view drunk driving. :

Paris belongs in jail for this. I think it's great that she was convicted.

It really seemed like she didn't take it seriously at all. Her mom made some snarky comments during the trial too, and that probably didn't help matters. I think she fully deserves the jail time and I'm glad they're actually going to put her there.

You're not awful. Well, if you are, so am I.

And Kathy Hilton is lucky I wasn't the judge - I'd have smacked her with a contempt citation and put her behind in jail, too.

Other than that, FINALLY. Finally someone is taking one of these so-called "role models" to task for their irresponsible, and in this case, criminal, behavior.

Commit the crime, do the time, Paris. Can't wait to see pictures of her in the orange jumpsuit with no makeup, no push-up bra, and six weeks worth of roots.

My sister was killed by a drunk driver. Need I say more?

I'm so sorry JoAida; and this tragedy is exactly why drunk drivers, especially repeat offenders should be heavily punished. It breaks my heart when I read or hear about yet another person killed by someone too selfish to simply call a cab. And, I'm sure Paris could afford a measly cab ride home. I am thrilled she was sentenced to jail time. Driving under the influence is a serious crime with potentially tragic consequences - an offender should be jailed and a repeat offender should suffer serious jail time (IMO).

My slight glee is tempered by having just read of the pay-to-stay jails in some areas...imagine she'll be looking into one of these.

The judge specifically ruled those out and picked one just for her.

I'm glad she's going to have to suffer the consequences, but I really think it's just more press for her. I mean, think of what the media will do with this.

Yeah, I was happy to hear it - particularly after reading about how she tried to place the blame on her assitant (they didn't tell her) even after she signed statements about her driving restrictions. The pissy comments from her mother really take the cake.

I have no pity for her. She got a lot more lieniency than most people would the first two DUIs.

Who's Paris Hilton? (Just joking -- but I didn't know she was going to jail.)

JoAida: I'm so sorry for your loss.

I too am glad to see Paris pay...I missed what her mom said though. Anyone care to summarize?

Uh, she's being thrown in jail for driving with a suspended license, not being a repeat drunk driving offender. I think this is totally stupid. Our prisons are overcrowded as it is. Are we really so scared of the big bad socialite so that she needs to be locked up? Please.
