Free Lindsay Lohan!
California’s state and city budgets are broke. Its prisons and jails are jammed to overcrowding. But Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner just sentenced actress Lindsay Lohan to 120 days in jail for violating her drunk-driving probation.
That’s because courts nowadays consider themselves dictators. And if you don’t obey their absurd system to the letter, they throw you in jail.
She’s also accused stealing an $850 necklace from a jewelry store, which could land her in the klink for another year.
How many tens of thousands of dollars is L.A. County spending of the taxpayers’ dollars to prosecute Lindsay and imprison her? Couldn’t some way have been found for Lindsay to pay restitution to the jewelry store — say, $20,000?
Instead, the jewelry store, and all taxpayers of L.A. County, will be forced to fork over tax money to pay for this whole mess. So they will be robbed a second time, this time by their own “justice” system.
Here’s what the judge told Lohan, as reported by CNN:
Sautner suggested Lohan might behave better after seeing “how truly needy women and women who have fallen on real hard times have to live.”
It’s the judge who needs to behave better. In jail, Lindsay actually will see some hardened criminals, but also a lot of women who have been imprisoned for such non-crimes drug possession or trafficking. She’ll see why police-state America has the world’s highest incarceration rate — even higher than communist Cuba and China.
Lindsay seems to be non-political. But after going through the “justice” system meatgrinder, she might become an activist for reform.
Moreover, in civilized societies, pretty girls are given a lot of slack. Why? If you have to ask, no answer will suffice.
Lindsay here is the victim of a gross miscarriage of justice.
Free Lindsay Lohan!
