Britney Spears’ release: Why, God? WHY?!

February 7th, 2008 // 88 Comments

Britney Spears’ release from UCLA Medical Center has many people scratching their heads. It turns out that a court-appointed lawyer stepped in and decided that Britney was no longer a danger to herself and others. People reports:

The procedure calls for a hearing at the hospital to find out whether the hold is justified. The rep for the court, called a “hearing referee” – who is usually a lawyer – interviews the patient and doctor to determine if there’s “just cause” for detainment.
“This is when law and medicine collide,” says attorney Terry K. Wasserman, who’s not involved in the Spears matter, “when a lawyer can override a doctor’s opinion.”

Britney Spears’ parents are obviously none-too-thrilled and issued the following statement last night to the media:

“As parents of an adult child in the throes of a mental health crisis, we were extremely disappointed this morning to learn that over the recommendation of her treating psychiatrist, our daughter Britney was released from the hospital that could best care for her and keep her safe.
“We are deeply concerned about our daughter’s safety and vulnerability and we believe her life is presently at risk. There are conservatorship orders in place created to protect our daughter that are being blatantly disregarded. We ask only that the court’s orders be enforced so that a tragedy may be averted.”

My sources tell me that, after releasing the statement, a concerned Lynne and Jamie Spears met with Pentagon officials, The Super Friends and that kid from Home Alone who, sadly, forgot his paint buckets. So much for devising a fully functional crisis response. Kevin, you’re such a disease.*

*My apologies to anyone whose never watched Home Alone and has no idea what I’m talking about. You also have my sympathy for living what must be a shallow, empty existence. Even if you’re a doctor that saves orphans.

    Tho I’m no fashion maven, I’m pretty sure she should be committed just on the basis of that dress, clearly a discount gas station purchase, and the hat-boots-lipstick ensemble.

    I love Britney tho. She can rehab at my house, with my promise not to steal any of her personal effects.

    Compassion for the crazy. A pox on Paris tho.

  12. Oprah's Gorilla Butthole

    The BOOTS!! Oh, THE HUMANITY!

    Maybe those boots are standard issue for all mental health patients.

    I’m sure the smell in those puppies could cure schizophrenia.

    And #8, you’re such a disease.

  13. D. Richards (Sadist.)

    #6? That was cute. One thing, you misspelled ‘need’.

    ‘Brain enema’. Not only would my brain purge it’s shit, but also Satan’s prick.

    This fucking bullshit blows. How does that lawyer live sleep at night? Hmm well I guess the way all scummy lawyers sleep at night in a solid gold bed with a machine that simmulates the sound of the ocean. What a fucking a-hole. How is he going to feel isf she hurts herself or someone else? I guess pretty fucking relaxed since he’ll get the news during his daily massage from 5 playboy bunnies on a solid gold massage table. Fuck this world. I’m done with all of this shit. No more, anything regarding Britney I am now completely ignoring. There are millions of people in her situation and I don’t hear about them everyday. It’s not funny anymore it’s just infuriating and it make me hate society, more than I already do. Everytime I hear about this heinous ongoing saga it makes me cranky and pissy well fuck why should I have to feel that way, I didn’yt whore out my oldest child for fame and riches, I’m not hillbilly white trash. ENOUGH of this shit, this is the last story I read about Brit. The 24/7 surveilance of this woman is insanity if they used all this crap to fin Bin Landin they’d find him tommorrow.

    Greetings from America! Here, if a citizen has not committed a crime, you can’t take away her freedom except under rare extreme circumstances.

    How often is a psychiatrist’s opinion at least partially incorrect? Most studies indicate that psychiatrists’ clinical judgments (about diagnosis, choice of treatments likely to be effective, short-term and long-term prognosis) rarely exceed 75% accuracy, and fall around 50% for most practicing clinicians. Their opinion alone is not sufficient to lock somebody up. The system worked the way it was supposed to.

  18. rusty trawler

    dude, it’s none too thrilled, not “non-too-thrilled”

  19. Anal Fistula

    wtf, fish….would you even have a website without Britney? there are other human disasters out there to cover…and why the lack of bikinis and nipple slips?

  20. Hey FRIST, Did you hear Britney was released from the looney bin yesterday??

  21. Snarf

    That’s not Britney Spears!

    That’s Boy George you cheeky flop!

  22. nipolian

    #16 – You have issues…….Seek help……They have meds that will make you better.

  23. The Laughing God

    America! FUCK YEAH!!!

  24. Yuni

    I would like for Britney to make her poopies in my mouth.

  25. Good. Maybe now she’ll kill herself and end this whole thing.

  26. lisa

    She is gorgeous.seems saw her before on a millionaire&celeb dating site Celeb Mingle . com
    ,but don’t know ih it is her.

  27. deaconjones

    my penis gave her wrist ringworm. I’m going to burn this thing off. It’s no fun anymore. Stupid limp ringworm giving penis. I hate myself.

  28. Mick

    #24 – just drop by her house, I’m guessing she’ll oblige. Just make sure you wait for the laxatives to kick in.

  29. Chauncey Gardner

    She is a walking, procreating horror.

  30. Britney

    I’M OUT MOTHERFUCKERS!!! WHOOOOO!!!

    Adderall and laxatives all around, I’m buyin’!

  31. matt

    Could whoever writes the content here start COLLATING the 9 million weekly Britney posts into just one, or maybe none at all?

    Nobody is interested in the microscopic developments of her rehabilitation. We only need a Britney post after:

    i) She exposes a nipple / breast / labium.

    ii) She dies.

    That’s it, really.

    #16. Um in this case the psychiatrist’s is right on the money. The woman is fucking batshit crazy and a threat to herself and others. Her parents believe this, it has been HEAVILY documented and everyone with a brain and access to the internet, a television, radio or grocery store knows it.

    Psychiatrist’s are usually idiots who require far more help then the people they are attempting to help. There is no definitive word on how to treat mental ilness or why it even happens and most of the time psychiatry is as useful as scientology, it is a VERY loose science almost as lose as Paris Hilton but, as we all know nothing on earth is as loose as that whore.

    However with all that being TRUE I still believe that this chick is better off in the care of “professionals” than out wandering free buying lattes, befriending and screwing people who clearly do not have her best interest at heart (if they had a human heart that is). This woman should not be on the road or with her children until she gets help and STICKS to some sort of treatment program.
    Unfortunately with her out again she’ll likely get her kids back soon and then well it won’t be pretty. I hope those kids and other children and people stay safe because they shouldn’t have to pay for this woman’s mistakes and personal problems and the sickening failure that is the legal system. The same legal system that won’t prosecute some fuckface caught on tape snorting crack because well there is no proof that it is crack when everyone and their crack sniffing dog knows it ain’t fucking icing sugar.

    So don’t give us any of this freedom bullshit, this is NOT about someone ‘s rights being taken away this is about giving someone the help they desperately need because they are too fucking looney to know they need it. This is in her BEST interest, it’s in everybody’s best interest. Because society as a whole and most of all her kids have the RIGHT to NOT have to deal with and suffer the consequences of this fucking bullshit. If something is not done to deal with this shit once and for all she will hurt someone else or herself in the end. I sicerely hope I’m wrong about that but, I’m not.

    I wonder what branch of the Church of Scientology ‘John Q. Public’ (#17) belongs to? Anyway, with luck, Adnan Ghalib will discard his wife, Muslim-style, Britney will find happiness in the arms of her favorite Pakistani paparazzo, Sharia law will prevail, and she’ll be stoned to death in the lobby of the Beverly Hills Hotel.

    If there’s nothing missing in my life, then why do these tears come at night?

    *pardon my spelling but I don’t spell check or edit for shit like this.

    I know I’ve been tough on the girl recently, but I think it’s time to put the signal up in the sky for her superhero to come and rescue her…

    na-na na-na na-na na-na ADNAN!
    na-na na-na na-na na-na ADNAN!

    I think my insane 89 yr-old aunt wore that exact ensemble to my graduation party. She’s dead now. Probably not because of the outfit.

  38. Andrew

    look what you did, you little jerk!

  39. Chauncey Gardner

    Oh, and I love the HOME ALONE reference.

    Whenever I see that movie, it’s tough to ignore Kevin’s potential as a black ops operative for any number of government intelligence and security agencies. Can you imagine what kind of damage he could do with a silenced M4, a ballistic knife, and fourty pounds of Semtex A?

  40. John Q. Public

    Yeah, no. I’m not quoting Scientology. Here’s something from a recent article in one of the top journals in medicine.

    New England Journal of Medicine, 2007:
    http://content.nejm.org/cgi/content/full/357/18/1834

    “Notwithstanding the importance of the assessment of patients’ competence by physicians and the incidence of impaired capacity among patients, data suggest that the performance of capacity assessments is often suboptimal. Physicians are frequently unaware of a patient’s incapacity for decision making. When incapacity is suspected, physicians may not know which standard to apply, and, as a result, their evaluations may omit mention of the relevant criteria or may not apply them specifically to decisions about treatment. The assignment of diagnostic categories may be confused with the determination of capacity. For example, a diagnosis of dementia or a psychotic disorder may be presumed incorrectly to indicate incompetence. Hence, the reliability of unstructured judgments of competence by physicians has been poor. In one study, five physicians reviewing videotapes of capacity assessments and rating the competence of patients achieved a rate of agreement that was no better than chance.”

    If you don’t like this site’s content………stay the fuck off it! Google celebrity gossip….you will find that there are many other sites on the internet that are very similar to this one. Quit fucking bitching. Go Fish!!!!

  44. my comment

    The boots. Now with wet disgusting sweat stains.

  45. Salesman Terry

    Beautiful Miss Britney, you don’t need hospitals, you don’t need drugs, all you need is the support, protection, and unconditional love of a good man. If I were your man, I’d keep the jackals away from you. I’d hold you gently in my arms and kiss away your tears and your pain. I’d caress you and assure you that you’re the most important woman in the world to me and the most beautiful. Don’t let the losers and haters get you down. You are perfection. Don’t you forget it!

  46. panty magnet

    #40. So then what do you suggest should be done?

  47. oishii

    you’re what the french call “les incompetents”

  48. Vince Lombardi

    Two points:

    1) I’m quite relieved that a lawyer (not a medically certified psychiatrist who spent years and years studying and treating clinically mentally ill patients) proclaimed Miss Spears is not nuts. Now I can start bagging on her again.

    2) Someone should check the Bing Crosby display at the Wax Museum. I think the mannequin is missing its hat.

  49. #1 hater

    John Q Pubic………did you just arrive in this country…??? have you missed two years of of extreme batshite behaviour out of this mess…??? just use your superhuman powers of observation and tell me you see a sane person when you look at brit…..seriously……check it out…she’s nuts…..she’ll yell at you with a british accent, for Christ’s sake………where you been, man….????

  50. LL

    That hat and those boots (if that’s a fairly recent picture) should be proof enough that she’s not ready to be released.
