It Was Probably Cruel and Unusual Punishment

What self respecting radio station would miss covering the big story of the day; Paris Hilton’s release from jail.  While working out this morning I learned that after being fitted with an ankle bracelet monitoring device Paris will be under house arrest for the remainder of her sentence.  An article on TMZ states:

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Paris Hilton’s medical condition was purely psychological and that she was in peril of having a nervous breakdown, and that’s why she was released early this morning.

Psychiatrist Charles Sophy visited Hilton in jail yesterday and the day before. We’re told after Sophy’s visit yesterday, word was passed to the Sheriff that Hilton’s mental state was fragile and she was at risk.

Was she psychologically balanced before this incident?  I don’t pay a whole lot of attention to the life and times of Paris Hilton, but she gets so much coverage it’s pretty hard to miss, and to me her head never appeared screwed on all that tightly in the first place.

Personally I think it was more a case of a little Paris can go a long way.  It was probably determined that any guards or other prison personnel having to deal with Ms. Hilton would be subjected to cruel and unusual punishment.  It reminded me of a classic O. Henry story, The Ransom Of Red Chief, where a young boy is kidnapped for a large ransom and is so obnoxious that the kidnappers end up paying the kid’s father to take him back.

  1. We are totally with you there! It seems to us that any person who would be subjected to the presence of Paris Hilton would be punished. The only worse punishment actually would be an hour with Georg W.
