Paris Hilton has been let out of jail after five days; her sentence was changed to home confinement in light of an "unspecified medical condition." I know all VC readers join me in urging Governor Schwarzenegger to pardon Paris Hilton immediately. The case against Paris was terribly unfair: she was jailed on a mere technicality, namely violating the terms of her probation. Shockingly, the prosecutors never came forward with a single iota of evidence that Hilton actually harmed anyone. None. Nada. And yet the prosecutors ran amok, piling charges upon charges against her. Our commitment to the rule of law -- not to mention homage to Alexander Hamilton and Federalist No. 74 -- demands that Paris must be set free from her cruel home confinement immediately.
