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.

48. 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 they are fading it's because of morons like you and babbs who clutter up the boards .

Go to the smoking gun, look at the pictures of Paris and then
read the
letter their dad wrote to her and Nicky about the perfume line that
was to "earn them more respect." The letter is cold and business like
and he told basically was telling them to go to mommy. Very
telling.Daddy isn't happy!

#52 - isn't Harvey and TMZ a PROMTION site for specific PAYING customers? If TMS is only promotional and not factual - doesn't TMZ have to promote paying celebrities - right?

Jesse and his posse must be in the wings waiting. You see Sharpton, Jesse is tagging along. Frick & Frack, the media whores.

Where is Sharpton's outrage when Foxy Brown is in & out of the courts for hitting & spitting on people BUT never did one day in jail or when Naomi Campbell did only 5 days community service for beating up several of her employees with cell phones and her fist. Come on man, Im not a Paris fan but Sharton is always waving that dam race flag and in this case celebrity justice is nothing new, whether your black or white. O.J., Robert Blake, Kobe, the list goes on and on.

The problem with it being Sharpton or Jackson, nobody respects them. They overplayed their 'race' cards to where there were no more cards in the deck. They've lost all credibility.

Why the media keeps courting them and putting them in front of cameras, I have no idea. As soon as one of them show up, I turn the station.

I have never agreed with Al S but I do on this Justice is Blonde...... The inmates should all get togetehr hire a couple of lawyers to petition teh court for the same thinsg she is saying and lets see how many get treated the same as PAris.. She needs to have her ass in the other jail where it belongs... She can not learn anything unless she gets punished not coddled...

Sharpton, I am not black, but I have been dealt a horrible injustice! Will you defend me?

My own race will not. This is the absolute truth! We need a white fighter like sharpton, exposing the injustice in this miserable land.... it does affect everyone.

This Biatch is a complete waste of Oxygen & space; what a useless POS. Rev Sharpton is trying to do some good outta all this BS she, her dumazz handlers (Sophy gives Osteopathic medicine a bad name), & Baca have pulled. Same w/Gloria Allread.

Did Paris-site think she was gonna get off w/o repercussions in a town that craves the spotlight? And w/a jail full of minorities, underprivileged & illegals?

Best thing that could happen is if some MS-13's showed her what they're all about, now they know where on Kings Road to find her azz. That'd be sweeeet justice...but such are dreams.

Usually I hate this guy and am never on his side, but I have to side with him on this one and hope this is just a start for what will come down on sheriff Bacca's bald head.
