Hey! did anyone here see the Mel Gibson story and the divorce??
I think if MEL had borrowed Phil's wig it coulda saved his marriage? Cause he would have been smarter and funny!

Jusice for Lana at last !! Finally an LA jury with good sense.

His lawyer Doron Weinberg was slimy and oily - more so than most defense attorneys. And he acted like a spoiled brat when he lost.

Wonder how Phil's first night behind bars will be? Will he think of Lana Clarkson?

And oh, yes the prosecutor Alan Jackson is a hunk!

Does ANYOnE know if HE CAN or CANNOT wear the wig to jail?
Does anyone here even care?

Does anyone here own a wig or ever worn one? Then YOU will KNOW how poor Phil feels!
Did someone mention he owed a GUN? Did he own as many guns as he did wigs?

Spector has been terrorizing women since at least the early 1960's. So, that's almost 50 years of brutality. Its horrendous U.S. "Justice" system, took so long to finally give him what he deserves. No way should he ever get out of prison. His egomania cut short Lana Clarkson's life and he's lucky he wasn't given death penalty.

Finally, that little woman-hating weasel is going where he belongs, to the slammer. It's going to be culture shock without the wigs, shoe lifts, etc. No more "castle" for you, go straight to the dungeon, Spector! Guys in prison are going to look at YOU as if you're a woman now so the table turns, there is justice! May Lana Clarkson finally rest in peace.

This sick idiot has been out and enjoying total freedom ever since he murdered Lana. FINALLY he's been jailed. He really thought he was above it all, he's been waving guns at women for years. FINALLY his status has not saved him from being treated like just what he is... a moron abuser and murderer.
