Michael Douglas & Ex-Wife

Sorry, Your Son's No One Special

Michael Douglas and his ex-wife, Diandra have just been derailed in their effort to see their imprisoned son -- ironically derailed by a group that fights for prison reform ... TMZ has learned.

Cameron Douglas is currently serving time on drug charges and prison officials are not letting visitors see him -- including his parents.

Diandra has been enlisting Hollywood celebs to sign a petition posted on Change.org -- a petition urging prison officials to let them see their son. 

Her campaign was picking up steam but suddenly it disappeared from the website with no explanation.

We did some digging, and contacted the Drug Policy Alliance, which actually spearheaded the petition drive.  DPA officials told us they had a change of heart ... the sentiment was that it was unfair to help individuals and not focus on the big picture of prison abuses.  It seems there was also a feeling that it didn't look good to help famous people and not everyone else.

So Diandra and Michael are back to square one.

It was all that "SPECIAL-NESS" that got this kid in trouble in the first place.

Because, you see, when MY son breaks the law, MY son goes to jail. MY son has to sit there, because we have no money to get him out. MY son gets to see the judge in the morning, and if the judge sends him back to jail?? Guess what - MY son has to go back to jail.

And because that happened one time to MY son, it's NEVER HAPPENED AGAIN to MY son. He learned. He got it. He's not "special". And after spending five days in jail, he got out, got a job, paid his fines, and learned how to obey the law.

I highly recommend this strategy to ANY of you parents with "special" kids.

Try it sometime - your kid won't be "special" anymore, but he might be something even better - he might stay ALIVE.

Rules are rules, they better get over it. There is a reason why he is not allowed visitors, perhaps he didn't behave himself and acted like a spoiled celebrity son. Do him and them some good
