The Rev Tells The Sheriff: Paris Exposed "Unfairness"

6/11/2007 8:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rev. Al Sharpton met with Sheriff Lee Baca today to discuss recent events surrounding Paris Hilton and how they relate to other prisoners in the jail system. Sheriff Baca is the guy who reassigned Paris from a Lynwood jail to house arrest, under a s**tstorm of controversy.

Sharpton, founder and president of the National Action Network, met with reporters after the meeting, saying, "I told him what prompted this is the feeling that ... there is an unfairness in how reassignment and early releases have been meted out."

One reporter asked Sharpton the burning question everyone wonders about whenever the Reverend intervenes in a story: Why are you here? To which he replied, "If I lead a national organization, and citizens in the county who are members of the organization call for us to get involved, the question is, 'Why wouldn't I get involved?'" Touché.

I usually, only like Sharpton, when I compare him to the hypocrisy of Jesse Jackson. In this instance Sharpton has a point, and since he's good at being a thorn he may be able to do good.

I rarely agree with anything Rev. Al says;however, he's right on these issues. Dog him Rev.

To tell ya the truth, I'd comment on most anybody who might be able to bump Paris Hilton's picture and stories - ad nauseum - totally outta the media. Hey maybe being locked up for awhile will break her addiction to the media and stop her from thinking the world she's created is real. It is not and serious business professionals in the show biz industry know that and for the most part and behave accordingly. Unfortunately, Paris, for whatever reasons, does not.

I usually do not support Al Sharpton but on this one I am behind him 100%. Paris Hilton should be treated just like everyone else. She should not be allowed access to her own personal Psychiatrist. The Sheriff Dept. needs to quit catering to her.

Al Sharpton is always trying to interject himself into any news event-If he is a reverend why doesn't he read the bible to himself about butting into everyone else's business. What an annoying little nobody. If Paris Hilton is famous for being famous and nothing else. Al Sharpton is famous for being nothing but a busy body. Go away Al Sharpton you are annoying, I don't care how much you flap your gums you will NEVER EVER be a Martin Luther King or anything close- GO AWAY. Go have coffee with Jesse Jackson another annoying person who thinks we care what his opinion is on any given subject.

Does anyone think that since Al-I'm a media whore-Sharpton has lost weight he strongly resembles the elephant man?

I'm sick of Al making black people look stupid and hateful. Why doesn't he try to be a peace-maker instead of stirring the pot all of the time? Sometimes these situations totally have nothing to do with race but he will find a way to play it! He needs to stop the drama!

#40. Crap- are you crazy? Or are you just saying what you honestly think? Because Rev. Al does provoke a lot of people, but to make a statement like that is totally unwarranted

PUBLIC SAFETY IS AT STAKE    

HARVEY, IF YOU NOTICE YOUR "HIT" NUMBERS DRASTICALLY DROPPING, IT IS BECAUSE MOST OF YOUR NOW-FADING FOLLOWING DOES NOT AGREE WITH YOUR NEW PRO-PARIS STANCE.

IF YOU ARE TRADING OFF FOR HILTON-FAMILY EXCLUSIVES, YOU HAD BETTER RE-WEIGH THE TRADE-OFF.

JUST A HEADS-UP ...

Al Sharpton is shining a light on the gross inequity that are a part
of Justice in a capitalist society. AS long as he does an
investigation before making any accusation he is doing what needs to
be done to insure that the phrase " and Justice for all' rings true.
Power to the People

3) Paris was never acting dumb...she is dumb;
4) Rick Hilton gave Lee Baca 1K in campaign money!!!!!!!!
