Look he’s doing actual work.

Exclusive footage show Sarah Palin’s son Track doing community service at a Salvation Army thrift store.
The 29-year-old was sentenced to unpaid work after breaking into his childhood home and beating up his dad Todd, 54, so severely it left him bleeding from the head.
Police arrested Track – the son of the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin – following the attack last December.
But he was let off with a slap on the wrist after admitting misdemeanor criminal trespass for breaking into his childhood home as part of a plea deal.
Prosecutors dismissed a felony charge of burglary and misdemeanor charges of assault and criminal mischief.
It meant Palin, an Army veteran who served a year in Iraq, could take part in Alaska Veterans Court, a therapeutic rehab program.
A source revealed that as part of the program – which involves treatment and court monitoring – he worked three shifts at the Salvation Army goodwill store in Wasilla, Alaska, last month.
They said: ‘His community service was cleaning bathrooms, sweeping floors and picking up and hanging clothes.
‘He also has to go to classes several times a week and has court hearings.
‘I think people would be surprised. It’s almost incognito – it’s not picking up trash on the highway.’
Yeah, he is not only not picking up trash on the highway, but he is also not serving real jail time like any other Alaskan would who broke into a home and beat the homeowner while brandishing a firearm.
And keep in mind that this was an offense that took place while he was supposedly still on parole from beating the shit out of his pregnant fiancee.
No Track is still being treated like a naughty schoolboy when he is, in fact, a dangerous addict and serial abuser.
Track may find this humiliating but it is unlikely to be enough to actually change his behaviors in a significant manner.
And that means his family, future girlfriends, and the people of Wasilla remain in jeopardy simply because the Palins do not believe that the laws apply to them the same as they do to others.
