Re: Plaxico Burress sentenced to 2 years in prison on weapons charge
I'm torn here. Part of me feels bad for him, because this is obviously a case of one-size-fits-all justice spitting out a result that doesn't fit the crime.
The other part of me lacks sympathy, because they offered him a plea deal of 60 days in jail and he turned it down like a dumbass.
Actually, he's a dumbass three times over -- once for the plea deal, once for not transferring over his carry permit (which would've made the whole thing legal), and a third time for being the epitome of gun un-safety. When you f*** up that many times in a row, it's hard to feel too sorry for the guy.
