Held to a Higher Standard

We all know that movie stars, athletes, and musicians are given special treatment on a daily basis. They receive free gifts when they can afford to buy it themselves, roads and intersections are sometimes shut down for their arrival and much more. Even when it comes to the justice system these superstars are given special treatment. This is one place where we should be treated equally just.

These famous athletes, and reality t.v. show stars are the ones influencing future generations and young leaders now. I’m not saying famous people don’t or shouldn’t make mistakes or don’t experience the same ill temptations us normal citizens do, but I am saying if and when they do, justice should be served. Sometimes a slap on the wrist won’t teach us a lesson.

It’s unfair when petty crimes are committed by normal citizens, harsh reprecussions follow, but when a star assaults someone, hardly anything is done. And yes, these superstars can afford some of the best lawyers and definitely put their money where their mouth is, but it does not justify their wrongdoing.

Let us not forget about Alec Baldwin, and Chris Brown. Baldwin is openly homophobic, in a rude, and condescending way. He goes around cursing people out, and always acting outrageously. More examples of what he has done are “roughing up shutterbugs, disobeying flight attendants and raging into his then-11-year-old daughter’s voicemail, “You are a rude, thoughtless little pig.” (According to a blog post on NY Post). As far as we know Baldwin hasn’t been punished for his outlandish behavior besides MSNBC cancelling two episodes of his show.

Chris Brown is probably the most popular, known for beating his girlfriend at the time, Rhianna. Of course he had to live with the turmoil of life, fans, and family afterwards, but in a legal sense he didn’t recieve much punishment. Probation and community service. That’s all. But in contrast, someone attempting to cash a stolen check or having in your possession a single crack rock, this could land you in jail for life without parole.

This is unacceptable. This is the example our kids have to look up to. They must learn that actions come with consequences. Some consequences worse than others. It is okay to make mistakes as long as we learn from them. Our legal system needs to do a better job at providing fair treatment to everyone, and not granting certain people special privileges over others. This leads to a bad view of the government and makes everyday normal people see the government as corrupt and crooked.

I realize there is more that goes into the law, such as number of offenses and so much more.I can’t even begin to scratch the surface of it. But unfair is unfair. Something needs to be done to make a change in the system.
