From Miley Cyrus to Amanda Bynes, it seems as though all young celebrities in the past year have been overtaking the media. Many have been arrested, but it seems as though they are not taking the right punishment for their actions. Are these young celebrities receiving special treatment for something much larger than a rehab sentence?

The latest of the craziest was Justin Bieber’s run-in with the police in the past week. Rumors have lurked whether or not he was to be deported, but it seems as though the nineteen year old has just run off to Panama. Lian Tumas, ’14, said, “Justin Bieber has had a bad reputation for acting out lately, but the media can really change someone’s state of mind in a negative way. He’s so much more talented than people give him credit for and works extremely hard for everything he has.” The biggest question on people’s minds are do celebrities receive special treatment when they are faced with the police?

It seems as though many of these child stars who run in with the cops spend more time in rehabilitation centers rather than actual imprisonment. Other celebrities like Bynes and Lindsay Lohan have gone through this. Cara Quigley, ’14, said, “Everyone gets upset when celebrities seem to be given special treatment when it comes to them getting in trouble with the law. Some celebrities like Bynes, deserve the special treatment because they are just so fabulous.”  Lohan has had many run ins, but yet again she seems to head out to where she may not belong. Ben Goodman, ’15, said, “Special treatment of celebrities is a sign of corruption and incompetence in parts of our judicial and justice system, and should be addressed quickly to preserve our founding fathers principle of equal rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

Some have taken it to the extreme, while others have some minor charges. Either way the debate continues to whether celebrities are receiving special treatment and sliding past the judicial system.
