    Chris Brown gets probation for beating Rihanna.

    Dante Stallworth (NFL football player) gets one month in jail for killing a man while drunk driving. There are people who serve more time for drunk driving without even getting into an accident.

    If you have celeb status and money, you can finesse your way out of things. People get away with murder. Look at George W. Bush. :eek:

    It's probably a good lawyer more than money, tho that money buys you a good lawyer.

    Of course it is. Anyone who thinks otherwise is sadly mistaken.

    You got that right. I went to Fayetteville, NC courthouse last week. A woman had fled the police in her Jaguar, and she was DUI. Her second DUI in as many years. The judge suspended all jail time and gave her a $225.00 fine. How's that for big money!

    What got me about the Chris Brown thing was when the judge said it was commendable that he took responsibility for his actions. A JUDGE! What the hell kind of message is that for a judge to be sending out?! 'Ah sure you beat a woman, but you're sorry. S'okay likkle Chris, that's vewwy gwown up of you!'

    Sick.
