LOS ANGELES: I never thought I would be writing anything about Paris Hilton
but this is just too good to pass up. And it’s really not about Paris anyway, so
much as about the absurdity of what liberal California and Los Angeles have
become. This was showcased over the last couple of days with the Hilton case. I
hope this incident serves as a lesson to liberal parents who think raising their
children without proper discipline is a good idea.
I’ll be brief with the background as I’m sure you have heard it all before.
Paris Hilton was arrested for DUI, paid a fine, and was placed on probation. She
was then arrested a second time on the same offense plus violating probation.
She paid a fine, was placed on probation again, and had her license suspended
for 60 days. She was subsequently arrested a third time for the same offense,
plus violating probation, plus driving on a suspended license, plus failing to
appear in court on time.
Well of course. She’s a spoiled rich, no talent, celebrity who believes her
money places her above the law. Judge Michael T. Sauer saw it differently. It
was clear to him that light sentencing would have no effect on Hilton. He
ordered her to 45 days in jail which was reduced to 23 days. She was given 30
days to report for her sentence.
California has a “three strike rule” for felons. Two slaps on the wrist, then
you go down for the count. But because of County jail overcrowding by criminal
illegal aliens, most offenders serve only 10% of their sentence, the rest is
commuted to probation or electronic monitoring. Misdemeanor offenders sentenced
to 10 days are usually out in one. No one serves their court ordered sentence in
Los Angeles and criminals know it. Brief jail time for a crime is merely a break
from the stress of life on the streets.
Miss Hilton turned herself in to serve her sentence ordered last month, at
11:58 pm Sunday night. At 2:00 am on Thursday morning she was released to the
Electronic Monitoring Program and sent home after serving 3 days but credited
for 5 - Sunday through Thursday. Upon arriving at home, she immediately called
her favorite bakery and ordered a delivery of her special custom made cupcakes.
No need to drive anywhere.
This is where it starts to get good. L. A. County Sheriff, Lee Baca, says she
“wasn’t released”, she was sent home sighting "severe medical problems" as the
reason. That’s like saying the Immigration Bill isn’t “Amnesty”. He later
confirmed the medical problems were mental in nature. What it really came down
to was that Hilton decided she didn’t like being in jail and being treated like
a prisoner so she should be allowed to go home. Baca agreed.
But Judge Sauer had written on his court order that home confinement and
electronic monitoring was not an option. He also ordered that there should be no
early release, no weekends off, no special privileges. Hilton would pay the
consequences for her actions just like people in the real world do. But Paris
Hilton has never lived in the real world.
Baca forgets that the whole reason for jail time is punishment.
Allowing Hilton to serve her time at home eliminates the punishment. To Hilton,
life is a party and home is where the party is. If Sauer couldn’t make an
impression on Hilton this time, he knew he would be seeing her in his courtroom
again. The next time, someone might be dead as a result of the Hilton immaturity
and irresponsibility. It was time this spoiled brat learned some discipline that
her parents failed to teach her.
On Thursday afternoon, Los Angeles District Attorney, Rocky Delgadillo, made
a statement condemning the (non-release) release and would be filing an
objection with the judge and requesting an investigation. By Thursday evening,
and outraged Judge Sauer ordered Hilton to appear before his bench at 9:00 am
Friday morning. She didn’t show up because Sheriff Baca had refused to send a
car to pick her up saying the judge has no jurisdiction over it anymore.
Friday morning, Judge Sauer was informed that Hilton would make her
appearance by phone instead of in person. Oh, that’s cute! It was also the last
straw for Judge Sauer who then ordered the Sheriff to send deputies to Hilton’s
home to arrest her and bring her into the courtroom. Sauer would deal with Baca
An hour later two Sheriff’s cars were still waiting in front of Hilton’s
mansion as Paris refused to come out. Media reporters and paparazzi were
everywhere and all tv news stations were focused on the street in front of
Hilton’s home for more than an hour as news helicopters circled overhead. For
our sick media, it doesn’t get any better than this.
Finally she appeared at the door kicking and screaming, in tears and
handcuffs as Sheriffs deputies escorted her to the police car. The car she was
placed in was swarmed by photographers, reminiscent of an Israeli car in
Palestine during a riot. As the car tried to slowly pull out, one photographer,
leaning over the hood, was thrown to the ground by the moving car which abruptly
stopped and the officer shouted over the loudspeaker “Get out of the way!”.
You would think it was the President of the United States under arrest in
that car the way the media acted. This is another example of the perverse
obsession some Americans and the media seem to have with all the wrong people.
For some, the world turns on other people’s personal lives, especially if
they‘re famous. I will never understand this ridiculous obsession with the
personal lives of people whose job it is to appear on screen. In Hilton’s case,
she doesn’t have a job. Just a Hollywood party tramp with lots of inherited
After a two hour wait, Hilton was finally escorted into the courtroom where
lawyers argued their case for an hour. Judge Sauer ordered that medical records
be presented to testify to Hilton’s illness but they never came. Defense lawyers
made up all kinds of silly excuses for why Paris should not be in jail.
Rumor has it that the medical problem was a severe case of Spoiledbratocosis,
compounded by frequent attacks of Tempertantrumitis. These dysfunctions became
more pronounced during her 3 days in jail because of the sudden development of
Incarceratiaphobia which the jail staff was unequipped to deal with and feared
it might effect other inmates.
Before long, Sauer had had enough of this nonsense and ordered Hilton back to
jail to serve the full 45 days. Hilton was shocked to hear “Go to jail. Go
directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do not pass a liquor store. Do not pass your
drug dealer. Do not collect $200 from your mother.”
She was led from the courtroom crying and screaming “This isn’t fair, this
isn’t right - Mommy, Mommy!” This young lady is 26 years old. “Mommy, Mommy?”
This is what happens when you raise a spoiled brat who is never forced to grow
up and face reality. You end up with a 26 year old 2 year old.
There is now an investigation in progress to bring charges of Contempt of
Court against Sheriff Baca for violating a court order. Baca defends his
decision to release Hilton stating he doesn’t think she belongs in jail. That’s
not his decision to make when ordered by the court. He also states jail
overcrowding as a reason, but the special facility where Hilton was taken is not
overcrowded. She didn’t even have a cellmate in her 8 x 12 two bed cell.
He also stated that her “medical condition was deteriorating”. Well, of
course it was. This is a child in a woman’s body who has never before had to
face accountability, discipline, or punishment in her life. Her whole world has
never been anything more than a party. The reality of personal responsibility
doesn’t fit in her world and she is totally unprepared for it.
She can’t accept it and can’t believe it’s happening. It’s turned her world
completely up side down. You can’t party in jail. For Hilton, it’s just like
going through drug and alcohol withdrawal which is also likely contributing to
the problem. No wonder she‘s freaking out and expects that if she continues with
her childish tantrums, they’ll let her out again.
Recently, a pending $10 million civil case against Hilton had been postponed
until August because Paris was deemed too distraught and upset to appear in
court after last month‘s ruling. Hilton immediately went home and threw a party
to escape reality which has no place in her world of parties, alcohol and drugs.
She’s too upset to appear in court, but not too upset to party.
Why would Baca defy the court by releasing Hilton? I can think of several
reasons. It’s been said that Baca is a “celebrity worshiper”. Obsession with
celebrities is a mental illness and I can only suggest to such people - get a
life! It’s because of people like Baca that celebrities get away with so much
and feel they are above the law and better than everyone else.
The Hilton home is in the West Hollywood hills. West Hollywood is a part of
Los Angeles County, not L. A. City, therefore the Sheriff serves as the local
police. It’s the Hiltons and other Hollywood celebrities who paid for Baca’s
reelection campaign. You don’t bite the hand that fees you.
Baca wants to stay in the good graces of the Hollywood crowd to protect his
career and to be accepted by the people he admires so much. Judge Sauer decided
it was time to start treating these primadonnas like everyone else when they
commit crimes. Baca tried to serve the Hollywood celebrities instead of the
people of this county. I will never vote for him again for any office since
learning this. Come to think of it, I don’t think I voted for him last time
Friday afternoon, we found out why Paris is so broken up and broken down over
being sent back to jail. Early in the afternoon caterers and party equipment
suppliers began arriving at the Hilton home along with a few early guests for
Paris’s welcome home from jail party but she won‘t be there. Instead, she is the
L. A. County Jail Medical Ward on suicide watch. For Paris, this situation is
definitely justification for considering suicide.
Just imagine her surprise, thinking she has avoided justice once again and
looking forward to partying that night, but instead she finds herself alone
staring at concrete walls and bars while the party goes on without her. Welcome
to the real world, little girl. I hope you’ll learn something about it over the
next few weeks. You have only yourself and your parents to blame for your
Judge Sauer is being called "an aggressive judge" by TMZ.com.
Los Angeles needs more "aggressive" judges like Michael T. Sauer.
On Saturday, Hilton issued a statement saying that the latest ruling
will not be appealed.
