I hate Chris Brown. I need to make that clear. I know it has been a few weeks since I said it, and I think it is important to reiterate it as much as possible. That being said, I think that the convicted thug got a very appropriate sentence. He did plead guilty to felony assault so he can never own a gun which is a wonderful thing. Of course it wouldn't stop him from getting one if he needed one, but it is still a deterrent. He has to six months of community service which is a lot. It is actually better in my mind than jail. In jail we the people would be paying for him to stay there and he wouldn't be doing anything but watching television and hanging out with people. In community service, especially since he will have to do it in Virginia, he will be working hard 8 hours a day doing things for the community and the community won't be paying for it.
He gets five years of probation which is a very long time. I know he beat Rihanna to hell that night, but compare it with the Cleveland Browns wide receiver who killed a guy earlier this year while drunk driving and got sentenced to 30 days in jail. 30 days for killing someone while drunk. I am outraged by that. For Chris Brown? As a human I am outraged that he exists, but not so much by the sentence.
