Ryan O'Neal
's 26-year-old son Redmond got one hell of a parting gift during his sentencing last week for a probation violation -- a state-of-the-art GPS monitoring bracelet.

Redmond's probation was revoked in September -- after he allegedly snuck out of rehab and ordered drugs on a payphone -- and last week, a judge sent him back to the treatment facility ... with the monitoring device around his ankle.

According to law enforcement sources, the device sends back detailed information about Redmond's whereabouts every five minutes -- and if he steps outside his assigned area, an alarm goes off.

Redmond -- who's had a long history battling drugs -- pled no contest to drug and weapons charges back in August ... and was sentenced to a year in rehab.

If Redmond screws up again, he faces up to six years in prison.

Rehab has done wonders for him. He looks healthy and filled out - a different looking kid. What he needs is direction in his life - get an education and a job out of show business and do it on your own Redmond - not with Daddy's help. You will feel proud of yourself.

You know, I really feel bad for Farrah now. To think, the last 10 or so years of her life must have been horrible, first with the misery of her son's addiction and then a fatal illness to battle. I can guarantee you her son's problems were more painful for her to bear than her illness. I only hope there were some joyful years she's had since his birth, the way it should be.

You go to court and get probation. The judge tells you if you break probation you will go to jail. Why isn't he in jail? Would an ordinary citizen get the same treatment? Why do these Hollywood morons get so many breaks?

How many chances does this kid get? If he didn't have money, this would be a different story. Maybe he needs prison to show him how stupid he's been all his life.

An addict is like a rat on cheese or peanut butter. And if you've ever seen them, they'll eat till they're dead. Dead. DEAD. Get that plot ready to fill and another one cause he's going to end up taking someone with him.

Drug addiction is not a matter of simple willpower. Usually there are underlying neurostransmitter imbalances,metabolic imbalances, trauma..whatever. All you heartless b*st*rds wishing him illwill, karma is putting on her shoes and sprinting in your direction.
