I’m fed up.

First was Paris Hilton. She went to jail, she cried, she went home, she was escorted back. And its all a little fuzzy to me as to whether or not she actually served her entire sentence.

I think everyone can see what a disaster Britney Spears has become. ‘Nuff said.

Then theres the whole mess of Lindsay Lohan. How tragic is this girl? I had no idea she was 20 years old until I noticed a story that said a Vodka label wanted to sponsor her 21st birthday party. She’s in rehab, she’s out, she’s in again … it makes me wonder if she was only using it for spa treatments and exercise and then it’ll be summarized in yet another book before long. Barring probation time and community service, this girl is going to spend one day in jail for pleading no contest to seven misdemeanour drunk-driving and cocaine charges for two arrests in the last four months.

Now we’re looking at Nicole Richie. She drove the wrong way down the highway either while high or after some drinks and spent a whopping 82 minutes in jail for it before being released yesterday. Not only that, but the driving incident happened last December. Why is there a 9 month delay on this? I really don’t get it.

Does money or fame allow them to be treated differently? I can’t help but think that if someone had been hurt or worse yet killed, they wouldn’t get a fair sentence for that either. I’m more afraid of what kind of message this all sends out to the general public and especially impressionable ‘young people’ still figuring it all out. I would have thought some of this stuff had more consequence than a slap on the wrist and a day in jail. Maybe I’m just an old fashioned girl.

  1. I’m just about fed up with it all too! I’ve been watching the T.V. about it and I think these celebs need more than a slap on the wrist if your asking my opinion in the matter. It’s going to take an innocent person to get hurt or killed before people start waking up and taking these minor offenses seriously, however – I don’t think any of it is minor, I think these celebs should know that with their fame comes little ones looking up to them to be the role model… I can ramble so I better stop now, 🙂

  2. There’s really nothing I can say that you didn’t alrady put down. But I don’t think killing someone else while you are DUI gets you anything more severe than a slap on the wrist and maybe a law suit that won’t really impact your millions already in the bank. Because didn’t that singer Brandy have an accident in the last year or so where she killed several people in the other car and I’m sure she was DUI. But I’m pretty sure she never served any long term jail time and I think even the law suit from the family of the victims wasn’t anything big. It’s a sad sad world out there….

  3. Yes, it is a sad world out there, but it is the world. Those of us who are believers in Christ answer to and live for someone higher than ourselves. We should not be suprised at all when someone outside of Christ lives irresposnibly. Sure, they should have some sense of responsibility and shame for what they are doing. But, the Bible is clear that this world will become increasingly debase as those outside of Christ get caught up in living for themselves.

  4. I thought I’d pass this link along. It’s an article I read on a Christian News webpage regarding formoer KORN rocker and how finding Christ helped his rehabilitation.

  5. I’m not saying anything about their lifestyle…I’m saying the consequence for their actions seems minimal, and THATs what makes me mad.

  6. True. I undestand. Although even the court system will be flawed when not opperating under God’s law.
