Lindsay Lohan Thinks Amanda Bynes Is Getting Off Easy

Lindsay Lohan, my generations example of what can go wrong with child stars, recently took to Twitter to question the fairness of punishment for Amanda Bynes, who has now been charged with two misdemeanor counts of hit-and-run.

Poor Miss Lohan would like to know "Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far? +"

I'll save the fancy lawyer talk for you professionals, but what I think Miss Lohan seems to forget is that we have a judiciary process in America and that one has the right to a trial. She seems to forget that she herself went through several trials before being sentenced to serve jail time.

Like Miss Lohan, Miss Bynes has been arrested (for DUI) and she even gave us this beautiful mugshot to document the occasion:

Rest assured, Miss Lohan, Bynes' day in court will come and, just as you did, she will get an opportunity to fight the charges. Don't start hating on her or screaming "injustice!" until the judge has ruled.

With role models like Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes, I can't believe I don't have a drinking problem and criminal rap sheet. These women are the same age as me, I adored them as a child and teenager (I even cut school one day with some friends to go to a live filming of The Amanda Show), so it is rather upsetting to watch this downward spiral, again.

Same disaster, different young woman.

"Sources" are now claiming that Bynes might have some mental health issues. TMZ scoured the WeHo gym Bynes frequents for professional personal opinions of her mental state. TMZ notes that "One person says Amanda came to the gym Thursday looking dazed and began speaking with herself -- making comments and then answering back."

TMZ reports that a second gym member explained "when Amanda was on the elliptical, she would stop suddenly and start 'laughing hysterically for no reason.' She did this periodically throughout her workout. This person says he's seen her dozens of times in the last few months, and says it's apparent her condition is "deteriorating."

Let us leave diagnosis of mental health issues to the professionals. Being a member of Equinox gym in West Hollywood does not make you a mental health professional.
