"Blowhan" Gets Off!! Big Surprise!! Not!!

Yes, I'm going to bitch about the rich and famous for a minute. Lindsay "Blowhan" Lohan is essentially getting off with nothing more than a slap on the wrist. Big Surprise!! Not!!

D.A. to Lindsay -- You're Not a Felon

TMZ was at the Beverly Hills Courthouse this morning when the L.A. County District Attorney filed criminal charges against Lindsay Lohan. The charges are seven misdemeanors -- NO FELONIES. And, there may be a plea bargain today at 1:30 PM PDT.

Lohan, who was busted twice since Memorial Day weekend, was charged with two counts of driving under the influence. If convicted of both, she'd face a minimum of four days in jail. If a felony were filed, Lohan could have faced several years in state prison.

As to why no felony charges were filed, the DA says Lohan's cocaine traces "were below the .05 grams required by office policy for felony filing."

Sources tell us there were also problems even proving she was in possession of the drug.

As for the second case, a law enforcement source tells us the manner in which the cocaine was seized was questionable. In addition, the source says the amount of cocaine "didn't meet the threshold for filing."

But there's more to the story: In deciding whether to file felony cocaine charges, the D.A. always looks at the person and the circumstances. In Lohan's case, the fact that she was busted twice in a short period of time actually helped her. It shows someone is struggling with an addiction problem. The fact that each time she was busted, she immediately checked into a rehab facility also helped her case. Also, her age -- 21 -- and the fact that her upbringing was extremely unstable -- also worked in her favor.

One law enforcement source put it this way: "Prosecutors in this county see a lot of kids in crisis. There are lots of kids struggling with addiction. The first sign of trouble usually involves a car. We're not going to throw every one of them in prison. It doesn't make sense."

It must be nice having millions upon millions of dollars at your disposal. It must be nice being able to throw that money around to get out of legal trouble.

Let's break this down. She wasn't charged with any felonies because she is:

1) A kid!! Wrong there!! She's a 21 year old ADULT. And quite frankly, I'm getting pretty fucking tired of hearing these people called kids when they're not.

2) She has an addiction. Plus, her two drunk and drug fueled driving incidents and subsequent rehab stints actually helped her to avoid a felony charge. Huh? I thought that if you broke the law, you're charged with a crime. I didn't know that your CRIMES actually could help you. But hey, let's blame her addiction for her crimes and all is right with the world. I knew she would get off easy by shouting ADDICTION.

3) She had a disfunctional childhood. Again, this brings me back to the point that I was making a few seconds ago. She's an ADULT. Her childhood has got absolutely nothing to do with the fact that she drove drunk and high twice. What, was she trying to make a statement to her parents by doing this? Has she ever heard of picking up the damn telephone if she had something to say? And when in the hell is she going to grow up? She's not a child anymore. Her childhood is not an excuse for what she did. If that's the excuse they're going with, that's rather pathetic. The average Joe wouldn't get away with that shit!!

4) Her age. Yes, let's talk about her age for a minute. Again, she's an ADULT. With adulthood comes responsibilities. She chose to drive drunk. She chose to drive with cocaine in her system. She CHOSE!! Her age has absolutely nothing to do with this either. There are actual KIDS that do the same shit she did, and they've faced far worse punishment then she ever will.

5) The manner in which the cocaine was seized was questionable, and there would be problems proving that she was in possession of it? Um, how about the fact that it was in her fucking pants pocket? Doesn't that count for something? That says POSSESSION to me. And, let's not forget that she had cocaine in her system. If she had cocaine in her system, she can be charged with being under the influence of DRUGS. It's that simple.

Now let's talk about what they're not saying. She wasn't charged with felonies because:

1) She's Lindsay Lohan. Clearly, she has enough money at her disposal so that she will never have to face a minute behind bars.

2) She's white. I guarantee you that if this had been someone of another race, she would be facing felony charges. Yes, oh hell yes!! I'm going to pull out the race card people. It happens all the time, and will continue to happen until the end of time. It's a known fact that a person that isn't white is more likely to face harsher penalties for their crimes than a white person is.

3) She's rich. If this had been a poor person, they would be locked up for a long time. But since she's rich and famous, she's not going to see a day behind bars.

What message does this send to people? Well, it says to me that if you're rich, pretty, famous, and have an addiction, you can do whatever the hell you want and get away with it. All you have to do is cry UNSTABLE CHILDHOOD, and I'M AN ADDICT!! It says to me that if you have enough money to buy your way out of a situation, you should do that. Am I saying that she flashed the cash at the D.A.? No!! But with her money, she could hold up this situation until the D.A. decides that it's not worth pursuing.

I can't wait to see what happens the next time she drives drunk and high. Trust me, there will be a next time!! If she kills someone the next time she's driving drunk and high, is she going to get off because of her unstable childhood, age, and addiction? No doubt!!

Let this be a warning to anyone that lives, works, or travels in or around the area in which Lindsay "Blowhan" Lohan lives, works, or travels!! Don't step foot outside!! You may be her next victim!!
