Should rich and famous people be treated differently?

January 28, 2008 7:50am CST
I'm a everyday person and find it unfair when famous or rich people get different treatment to the rest of us. I've heard stories of famous people telling people how they have the right to so much because of who they are and another example is that footballer who got done for attacking someone or something where is he now? in prison . . no, he is in some luxury place having treatment or whatever (he did a couple of weeks inside). If that was me I'd be banged up! The same with coppers who get away with speeding (when not on duty). It is wrong, not sure if this prblem is everywhere or just in England!

No it's not just in England it's all over the world where some people are treated better than others. I mean look at celebs. If you look at how much better celebs. are treated so much better than others, I don't see how anyone could say that its fair. I mean seriously aren't celebs humans just like you and me....we don't get special treatment whenever we go somewhere so why shold they? Just because we aren't as famous as some other people doesn't mean that we should be treated differently than them! As far as the cops thing, no it isn't fair that they can speed and get away with it while they are off duty. I mean if we speed down the road we will get stopped and get a ticket. Again everyone is equal!

I totally agree about celebs however i must admit I probaly would't recognise half of them if they passed me in the street! They are the same as us but just have more money so presume they have more power (well not all but a lot).

I don't think rich and famous people should be treated differently. Just because the have money doesn't mean they should buy their way in or out of any type of situation.

Exactly at the end of the day they are no better than me or you (have more money than me but thats it!)

we may say we want fair and equal treatment for everyone of us here. But sad and true it is not happening because whether we like it or not the rich has been treatead well compared to the poor ones. Everywhere in the world today it is happening and I think this notion will never changed. The rich people have an edge in life. That is why more people wants money. Money seems to be the center of everyones life. To earn to live comfortably!
