Oh….My…..God, Sarah Palin said, "... I do think there should be consequences for bad behavior." Well, then why doesn’t she report to the nearest prison here in Alaska. I am sure her ex-boyfriend that she appointed as director of the department of corrections, Joe Schmidt, can have a nice cozy cell arranged for her. How about one in the mental health unit at Hiland Mountain, where your psychopathy could be studied. If you protest about the abusive treatment they can chain you to the floor and make you beg for toilet paper.
Psychopaths, while often dabbling on the border of criminality, may never actually commit crimes for which they could be arrested, and many people who commit crimes are not psychopaths (although the majority of extremely violent criminals are).
BTW, they are often quite indignant about those who do get arrested for actual crimes because this is a way for them to differentiate their behavior and have themselves classified as non-criminal. This is one reason why Sarah Palin often portrays herself and family as victims. They very carefully study the law to make sure they fly under the radar or have a loop hole they can use to keep from getting charged with crimes. This means they are even more conscious of illegalities than many arrested for crimes. Often, they can be seen surrounded by sleazy lawyers who protect their every move. They have no conscience which directs them, they only seek to not be arrested and manipulate their public image. Right and wrong is not their guide, self gain is. Going after a kid who should have never been charged with a crime to begin with is part of Sarah Palin's publicity machine. David Kernell should not get anymore than community service and a tongue lashing from the judge.
Apparently these consequences for bad behavior only apply to non-Palins:
Track Palin: Cut brake lines on buses which could have resulted in injuring children and did result in a school being closed. He was addicted to Oxycontin. Sarah Palin sent him to another state and managed to cut a deal that he could just join the military rather than be sentenced to prison. Which higher up in the state of Alaska was responsible for that? No criminal charges for Track for a very seriously dangerous prank.
Bristol Palin: Who knows what trouble this party girl got into that her mother rescued her from, other than trying to cover her pregnancy?
Diana Palin(Todd's sister): Charged with multiple burglaries, thefts, and child endangerment due to addiction to narcotics. She spent five months in jail before her sentencing. The rest of her sentence is chemical dependency treatment and she received an SIS, Suspended Imposition of Sentence, the charges will drop from her record after probation. She used her child to gain entry to people’s homes by having the child ask to use the bathroom and going with her. But, when she got caught she was just breaking into a house and it was not the first time. Anyone else would have gotten years for the same crimes and would be very lucky to receive any kind of chemical dependency treatment from the DOC.
It is not that I disagree with this sentence. I believe Diana Palin should be given a chance at recovery as addiction is a disease that takes over and causes people to do things they would not normally do. Clearly Diana Palin was very sick person when she committed her crimes. What I disagree with is other people get very harsh sentences for the same crimes and no treatment. When released from prison they get dumped on the streets to be homeless without treatment, are denied any kind of public housing, and of course end up in trouble again. What else could possibly happen? They put people with mental health issues in the prisons and torture them making them sicker, destroying any self esteem they ever had, and denying them any treatment for their original problems. They also do not get the charges dropped after probation, especially since those who work for the department of probation rather than rehabilitation see their main goal as getting people re-incarcerated on technicalities.
Willow Palin: Sarah was on vacation in Hawaii and had to rush home due to Willow’s latest antics. See the blogs, Alaska WTF and The Immoral Minority for more details. Willow and friends wanted to have a party. Willow suggested a vacant house she knew about. They vandalized and took property to the tune of $20,000 to $30,000. Being ethically impaired, Sarah claimed Willow was out of town at the time. But, the funny thing is it is reported the other kids all remember her being present at the party. So, Sarah had a meeting with higher ups at the juvenile justice system and got them to only charge the boys. This is the worst kind of nepotism and corruption there is. In the words of a woman who quits when her lack of ethics catch up to her, “that’s not right, it’s not legal, it’s not fair or decent”, but, then we all know these standards only apply to those whose name is not Palin. The Palins have special permission from Jesus and the state of Alaska to commit crimes, lie, and manipulate, that is why they are so often excused from being prosecuted. Others who have had their children put into the state juvenile facilities for minor crimes and psychologically damaged for life are just inferior non-Palins whose well being is inconsequential. Justice should always be tempered with mercy, but why does all of the mercy go to the Palin’s and only punitive justice to everyone else?
Sarah Palin thinks there should be consequences for bad behavior, unless your name is Palin. She plays to the cameras like she is upset that she has to spend her time trying to teach someone that it is wrong to “do such a thing”, when the real goal here is to get more publicity and camera time. Why is it she thinks her kids should be exonerated of their charges while she clearly wants David Kernell aggressively prosecuted. What makes easily accessing email a worse crime than burglary, vandalism, underage drinking, having wild boozy sex parties, and illegal use of narcotics? What would bring worse consequences to a young person, unethically accessing email or getting pregnant? But, really the biggest crime of all was Sarah Palin getting nepotistic favors granted by the higher ups in Alaska to exclude her children and relatives(and who knows what all has been covered up) from having the same consequences as others. Why does Sarah think she should be excluded from consequences for her own bad behavior? She appointed people all over Alaska government and agencies to help shield her from those consequences. How many who have come under her ire were then prosecuted, fired, or harshly sentenced due to her influence?
Does anyone believe Sarah did not use state resources to dig up information on people? Remember all the people walking around with knives sticking out of their backs? Really, if it was so easy for David Kernell to access her email account others probably were accessing it also. Why would a vice-presidential candidate not know to have extra security on email and phones, especially when she has a history of doing some underhanded acts herself?
Betty Bower’s “Worse Mother in America” Award to Sarah Palin says it all. I have been trying to figure out a way to post it as it is a work of art:
