Lindsay Lohan Suddenly Becomes a Prisoners’ Rights Advocate
Perhaps reflective of the fact that she’s just been sentenced to 90 days in jail for violating her parole, LiLo took to her Twitter account Wednesday afternoon to let the world know that she’s been brushing up on international law as it relates to the prisoners of the world, writing,
“It is clearly stated in Article 5 of the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights that, ‘No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.'”
Then, for reasons unexplained, the Just My Luck actress quotes from an article about U.S. sentencing guidelines, lamenting the “[s]cores of federal defendants sentenced under a constitutionally perverted system that saps moral judgment through its mechanical rules.”
Lohan wraps up her reflections on prisoner abuse by linking to an article about Iranian woman Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, who’s scheduled to be stoned to death for adultery.
Is Lohan comparing her own plight to Ashtiani’s? Is it even possible for a person, even Lindsay, to have such a warped perspective on things?
Of course, this could all be a coincidence, right? Yeah, probably…
