Where L.A. Justice is Swift and Effective
Uh oh. Paris Hilton was recently busted in Las Vegas with about a gram of cocaine in her Chanel bag.
Apparently, convicted criminals who are not subjected to punishment in Los Angeles have to travel to Vegas to get what's comin' to them.
Murderer O.J. Simpson got off Scot-free in L.A. for killing his ex-wife and her friend Ron Goldman, but he's now in a Vegas prison doing hard time for an armed robbery.
My hunch is, Paris Hilton also will end up serving some time in Vegas once she's tried and (likely) convicted for cocaine possession.
I'll bet rapper TI is relieved he was caught with drugs in L.A. rather than Vegas. He's on federal probation for weapons trafficking, so his drug bust does not look good, but being busted in LA probably will result in just another tiny slap on the wrist.
I'm not exactly a strict law and order conservative, but even I get sick of these celebutantes like Hilton getting busted all the time without any repercussions.
As I've said before, the kids of today have no idea how to do drugs without getting caught.
For example, if you're on probation and smoking weed in a moving vehicle with the windows down, it's probably best not to be holding cocaine in your purse.
I think perhaps it's time to put Paris Hilton in prison for 5 or 10 years.
Until these Hollywood chippies learn to be discreet with their dope habits, something has to happen to teach them what not to do.
It's just a shame that L.A. is too chickenshit to enforce their own laws.
