Why is everyone picking on Paris?

Paris Hilton is going to jail. She's to spend 45 days behind bars for driving with a suspended license. This, of course, is not the story. The real story are the fun quotes from those involved in the nonsensical circus.

During the prosecutor's closing argument, Paris' mother, Kathy Hilton, felt the need to interject with laughter and then blurted out for no particular reason:

"May I have your autograph?"

Moments before the judge read the verdict, Paris Hilton, who was ten minutes late for her court time, offered this sincere apology:

"I'm very sorry, and from now on I'm going to pay complete attention to everything. I'm sorry, and I did not do it on purpose at all."

Afterwards, Kathy Hilton's mood swung in the opposite direction as shockingly her and her daughter's flippant attitude resulted in a month and a half prison time for Paris:

"This is pathetic and disgusting, a waste of taxpayer money with all this nonsense. This is a joke."

The prison term is a joke since Paris had already pled no contest to reckless driving after failing a field sobriety test in September, a couple of other traffic tickets, not completing the alcohol education program made mandatory by the first boo boo, and in this most recent incident pleading ignorance to not realizing her license had been revoked. Not to mention the scene her mother caused and the "heartfelt" apology which was condescending to everyone involved in the legal system. Paris is lucky she didn't get a harsher sentence. Like say having to take a civics class.
