justice for all OR the whole system's corrupt

now mind you i went to school to become a lawyer that's what i wanted to do, make a difference in society by making sure that we achieved the GREAT "Justice for ALL" thing...
well as i went off to college and realized that, that wasn't going to happen, and graduated and started working 10-12 hour days at a law firm, i realized that wasn't what i really wanted to do...but really it is stuff like the crap i read this morning that really makes me sick to my stomach and glad that i work in the non-profit would to make the world a better place...

sure as you go through life, its expected that your goals and aspirations would change, but a lot of times, you may wonder if you were right in your shift or your change...

well CRAP like this,

Paris Hilton is released from jail after only serving 3 of her 23 day sentence...

you mean to tell me this heifer couldn't even do a REDUCED sentence and now gets to chill at home for 40 days and make money off of her "terrifying experience" in jail...
...this mess makes me sick!

reaffirms my determination that the system does not work for the betterment of ALL individuals but works "better" for those who have that cream, the almighty green, the dollar....UNLESS you would be a "good example" to make people know that certain folks aren't above the law, ie Lil Kim.....

this might also be hitting home for me because the dude that broke into my house, remember that, is up for sentencing tomorrow and will more than likely get a fairly liberal sentence because he will be in front of a fairly liberal judge...

now don't get me wrong, I think that we don't spend enough money in crime prevention (such as after school programs and education) and rehabilitation (i believe that we should have never stopped letting criminals be rehabilitated-how about we could really stop the revolving prison door if we really wanted to)

so i guess that's what pisses me off even more, star's like this brat get a brake, and everyday citizens don't....she could give a flying fart in space, she is going to keep right on drinking and acting a fool because she feels like she is untouchable, and why shouldn't she...she basically got off....

and its not just her, if you got money, you get off...that's the message we are sending to the American public, our young people...

I know that this was a rant and it doesn't really go into detail and is all over the place, but i was pissed and needed to vent...so there...

this is the second post i've read today that expressed your same sentiment. all this has done was to slap the regular folk that much harder in the face. it's beyond sickening how the injustice system works and that's why i try to keep my ass on the straight n narrow.

stay up sis!

This did nothing but piss me off in true negro fashion. This only reaffirms everything that black people believe. Then for Don King to say he is glad Paris is out of jail. WTH???

So sad...

I am beyond through with America and its freaking double standards. As long as you’re rich and fabulous you can do whatever u damn well please.

I am so OVER Paris (not that I ever liked her). But as a woman she needs to grow the fuck up and act like an adult with some values. (She can even buy some)

This is what happens when you have too much money and time on your hands.
