Paris Hilton dereassigned back to jail
'Mom, mom, it's not right', wails recaged heiress
Paris Hilton has been sent packing back to jail to complete her stint in chokey for violating probation on a drink-drive rap. The heiress was not initially in Los Angeles County Superior Court this morning to face Judge Sauer, having apparently decided to "appear by phone". Sauer, who originally handed down the sentence and ordered that Hilton do the full stretch, was having none of it, and demanded her presence in the courtroom.
Cue much pandemonium, with Hilton cuffed and led to an awaiting vehicle to carry her to her dateline with destiny amid shameless scenes of press frenzy as TV helicopters and paparazzi battled to record the historic moment for posterity.
According to Reuters, once she finally got herself before the beak, she was rapidly sent back to the can, exiting the court in cuffs shouting "Mom, mom, it's not right".
For those of you who may have missed the highly-entertaining rumpus, Hilton was released on Thursday from Century Regional Detention Centre in Lynwood, California, for unspecified "medical reasons", having completed just three days of her stretch. She was fitted with a GPS ankle bracelet and confined to within 2,000 to 3,000 feet of her West Hollywood home.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore explained : "After extensive consultation with medical personnel, it was decided this reassignment should be done." He added that Hilton would be confined to quarters for 40 days, after which she would have "fulfilled her debt to society".
However, the Los Angeles City Attorney was none too impressed with Hilton's release, and filed a petition "demanding LA's Superior Court to show why Sheriff Lee Baca should not be held in contempt of court for releasing Ms Hilton".
Jeffrey Isaacs, head of the office's Criminal Branch, said: "The decision whether or not Ms Hilton should be released early and placed on electronic monitoring should be made by Judge Sauer, and not the Sheriff's Department." Hilton was duly ordered back to court for Judge Sauer's verdict on her "reassignment". Sadly for the lachrymose socialite, Sauer decided to "dereassign" her back to the slammer. ®
RE: RE: Gaol: Pronounced Jay-ol
Two nations divided by a common language - Gaelic, be it scots gaelic or Irish Gaeilge, since the word gaol is an old Irish word still in use, it's reasonable to assume it probably traces back in scotland too?
When the Anglo Saxons invaded and stole land, they ended up stealing a lot of the indigenous language too. Oddly, brits tend not to credit Irish or Scoittish language sources, although they will reluctantly credit the germanic root of the language (see middle english, which is basically old german), or the effect of the repeated french invasions in adding new letter sto English during times of French rule.
Some examples: galore from ge leor to suffiency
car from carr, originally a cart
and obviously gaol, pronounced somewhere between jail and jay-ol. The spelling was changed in the staes to fit in with thhe english, hence jail.
Re: English evolves, idiot.
"- grammatically, the Americans speak a much purer version of English than Brits do"
Hmm, to my understanding the term English refers to the geographical region called England. Therefore, one could logically argue that if you are of English origin, ie born and raised in England, and received an English education, ie went to English speaking schools in England, then the language you speak is pure English (encompassing all local dialects).
While it may be true that Americans speak a purer form of an older version of English, it has been pointed out that English is constantly evolving.
The biggest bastardisation of English is the term "British (or UK) English".
