Because they can get away with it. They are more important than non-celebrities. This means that celebrities should not get arrested as they're always busy. It should be illegal to arrest celebrities away. And there should be no laws too, the world would be a better place without any laws.
Look at Lindsay Lohan, she has gotten away with so many crimes. She stole a $2,500 necklace when she could have paid for it. Then after continuing to break probation, she was under house arrest for two weeks!!!!!! If any person who isn't famous committed the crimes she did, they would be jailed for sure! This is just one out of the many examples where the famous get special treatment. In order to stop these actions, people need to act. We want equality and fairness. We don't want to be treated like we are lower than everyone else.
I'm a 16 year old kid who is sick and tired of how this world is spewing out crap for morals. I was at my local high school as a freshman, and I saw 7 kids sitting in the lot smoking weed. Its definitely not legal where I live, and their reason was "Lindsay Lohan did it, brah." Now I get my 10 year old little brother coming home crying about how kids are smoking on the playground, and I want to go up there and kick their faces inside-out. On top of it all, they have been legalizing this stuff in some states for "medical purposes." Medical purposes my ass; do you all know how easy it is to fool a doctor? My crack-addicted uncle does it all the time. Do you all know what they typically coat weed with? LSD. When these celebrities go around doing this, it makes it look cool and safe, when its probably the worst thing you can do to your bodies.
Celebrities don't get half of what a regular guy down the street would. Why? Because they are famous, and have a lot more money. Sadly that is what this world has come to. Justin Bieber DUI didn't get him enough of a punishment as it would have to me or you.
Because they are rich and could buy there way just about everything. But they need to learn one way or the other that that's not the way it goes, they need to learn a lesson. Also the little kids are going to think that they could buy their way out but they cant because they are just to poor.(maybe)
Many celebrities appear to get only a slap on the wrist where the average person may get years in prison for the same crime. Sometimes they only get a small fine and time served and no time was ever served because it was reduced to community service. If the average person committed the same crime, they most likely would get jail time and a hefty fine.
Over the years many celebrities work their way into the dark side of the spot light. For the most part many get away with crimes that an average person typically would not. They have become a major part in many people's lives and the responsibilities are lessened because of their popularity and wealth as well.
Celebrities like Justin Bieber get away with pretty much EVERYTHING. Taking drugs, DUIs, speeding, you name it, and there is probably at least ONE celebrity, current or past, that has been arrested for that, and not been properly convicted, due to their publicity and popularity. The idea that these people can get away with anything is so stupid. Celebrities shouldn't be punished with strikes like 3 year olds, they should be punished like the adults they are.
Vince Neil crashed car while drunk into another car, crippled the people in the other car for life and killed the passenger in his car, Razzle (The drummer from Hanoi Rocks). Instead of going to jail, his lawyers sued the city of Miami for not having adequate roads. So pretty much, for driving drunk, killing somebody, and crippling two people for life, he got money. All because he was famous and had better lawyers.
Of course they do. The most frequent and supported argument I have heard is people who bring in money for states and the country do not typically get in as much trouble as lower "classed" people. People like Bieber who need the intervention and the wake-up call aren't given it because the governments of the states and such like the attention and money they bring in. There is an article titled "A Sickening Case of 'Affluenza'" that illustrates how some very rich people have been getting away with things for years.
Celebrities do not get away with more things than regular people. They always pay their bail if they do need to go to jail. Or they pay people off to get them to vote innocent. Either way it's all because of the money they get. Charlie Sheen was caught so many times and got his license taken away. He was also put under house arrest.
They are watched more. Celebrities are watched more and don't get away with more crime. They may not have to pay as much or get punished but they don't get away with it, the press with always know.
While the court of law might have much more legal power there is an undefined incredible amount of power the court of society has. What everyone thinks of you can make or break your reputation. Celebrities deal with harsh judgements everyday when you dont know what positon they were in. Just because there in the public eye they are not people?
Through all the factors such as technology, the paparazzi, and the advancement of the law enforcement, it is nearly impossible for anyone (even celebrities) to get away with anything nowadays. The other aspect you can look at is the religious view on it, we all pay someday, whether lawyers help lessen punishment here on earth, we are always being watched by our creator. ;)
