Social Orb

What is going on in the world of social interaction

Hilton Ordered Back to Jail! – TMZ.com

Hilton Ordered Back to Jail! – TMZ.com

This has clearly taken over the web. The comments on stories related to this are in the 200+ range on popular blog sites. TMZ got 1500+ comments on the situation.

And on Digg, in the comments I find out that the sheriff is a what???

Well looky here: Sheriff Baca is a scientologist.

FTA:
“Baca even videotaped a birthday message for the dead founder of Scientology L. Ron Hubbard”

(Not sure how this fits in to Paris…) Interesting no??? The comment above got 206 positive votes.

On TMZ, you had some well wishers. A few get well and God will be with you sort of comments. Those were actually some of the few first comments on the blog post.

Other comments were not to favorable of Paris, including one comment that broke the page format saying, “Yes!!!” continuously in one line with no spacing.

One commenter has given you a way to write to Paris… not sure if that will work considering she went to medical probably as soon as she got there. Here is the link:

Yes… someone is trying to cash in. And yes there is more:

Is comment spam going to a new level, or is it just me?

If you are wondering what she did, here it is:

She pleaded no contest to reckless driving and was sentenced to 36 months’ probation, alcohol education and $1,500 in fines. In the months that followed she was stopped twice while driving on a suspended license. The second stop landed her in Sauer’s courtroom.

Is it something that many people from all walks of life get off for, or does Paris Hilton get special treatment because she never had to live in an environment like that in her entire life?

I have no answer to that. I haven’t seen any posts that speak to that issue either.

I another sentencing related event, digg posted about a 17 year old getting  a mandetory sentencing for consented oral sex… with a 15 year old. So this was obviouslt brought up against that in one comment:

Like the Georgia guy who is serving a mandatory TEN YEARS for consensual oral sex with a 15 year old when he was 17??? And prosecutors/judges/governor are refusing to lessen his sentence, even though he has already served over 2 years in jail and the law has since been changed to a MAXIMUM one-year sentence because of his case…

If you wish to read through a few hundred comments on Digg (some of them are very explicit while others reallt go into detail about what is going on and where you can find more info) just give a click here.

Overall, I think in the world of the social net, this seemed to really hit a cord with people in a big way. I do wonder what the aftermath of this will be. Will my questions of “is this something that usually happens to inmates” be answered? What about what has been brought up by others that if it was a minority, they would have served the whole 45 days.

What does MADD think about this? How is this effecting other starlets?

Hmmmm…..
