Morgenthau also disclosed that plea discussions broke down with prosecutors insisting on a two-year prison stay, and with Burress willing to do only one year behind bars.
Sorry Plexidouche - you aint calling the shots here pal.

You know... sometimes I just have to shake my head at the idiocy of players today.

But I have to wonder, 2 years for dogfighting, 2 years for carrying a concealed weapon...

Does that sound equable? Sure doesn't to me.

hard to say, Plax could have killed someone. I like the stern message sent. There is no rhyme or reason to our judges' judgment. Most of them don't use good judgment, I think their title should be changed. I am tired of people getting slaps on wrists for breaking the law.

Yep. It's been bothering me all along that someone can get three years just for HAVING a gun.

Three years for concealing an unregistered handgun, and I am sure there is probably something in there for not having a license to conceal.

Now if the gun was registered, and he had a license to carry a concealed handgun...the only two problems for Burress would be that he took the concealed weapon into an establishment that serves alcohol and he discharged the gun in city limits.

Everyone has the right to bare arms, but there is doing so legally and doing so illegally, and Plax chose to do so illegally and therefore is paying the consequences for that choice.

And before anyone starts calling me names, I am an advocate for the right to bare arms. I just prefer the people do so in the legal manner and not the illegal manner.

i think they should give him the option of shooting himself again , in the knee cap with a .357, or 2 years behind bars...
