Alltop, confirmation that I kick ass

When Julia starts dating, one of the first things I’m going to tell her is that UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS IT OKAY FOR A GUY TO HURT YOU! Sound obvious? Apparently a lot of YOUNG WOMEN don’t know it’s a bad thing.  In fact, according to statistics 1 in 3 teen girls experience violence at the hands of their boyfriends. And guess what? Some of them think this is normal and a sign of love.

Apparently singer RIHANNA did, because after her boyfriend CHRIS BROWN beat the CRAP out of her, she not only hooked up with him again, she did her darnedest to help him avoid legal punishment. Oh yeah. And did I mention it wasn’t the first time? Her friends reported that she’d sported bruises many times after Chris would get angry or jealous and beat her. She shrugged them off.

Well, sorry Rihanna. It’s NOT OKAY. A guy doesn’t do THAT (see photo right) to a girl, while choking and threatening to kill her, and get away with it. No siree bob. We’ve got laws against that in this country! That’s right.

 

In fact, CHRIS BROWN had his day in court yesterday and is officially GONNA PAY. How, you ask? Let’s see:

 

1) 5 years probation for felony assault (to which he pleaded guilty).

2)  He’ll have to come back to court every three months.

3) He must enroll in a domestic violence counseling program.

4) A five year order to stay at least 50 yards away from Rihanna.

5) Oh, and some community service.

 

Hmmm. Let’s see. NO jail time, 15 minutes out of his life 4 times a year, some online classes about how it’s naughty to beat up women (probably hosted by some Comedy Club veterans to make them more “enjoyable”) and picking up soda cans at the side of the road.  

WOW! Did he get grounded from SPONGEBOB and treats too? Uh, maybe a guy DOES do that to a girl and gets away with it!

Oh but wait. There’s MORE PUNISHMENT. I mean, as a convicted felon you lose some of your rights. For example:

1) To own a gun. (You know he’s pissed about that. A guy who beats a girl probably NEEDS a gun to make him feel powerful, bitch!)

2) Subject to search and seizure without a warrant. (Ooo. Better have his bodyguard carry his stash for him from now on. Oh wait. He already does that!)

3) To sit on a jury. (WHAT?! Hey! NO FAIR! I have to do jury duty in July and I can’t find a sitter! Hmmm. Maybe sometimes it IS okay to beat up a girl.)

 

So, what did the L.A. DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE have to say about this “punishment”?

“The punishment is consistent with punishment meted out to other first time offenders with no prior criminal record.”

 

Wow. I don’t know about you. But THAT makes me feel better. Knowing he’s getting the same fair treatment as all those other felonious assaulters who BEAT THE CRAP out of women.

Well. I’m sure CHRIS BROWN has learned his lesson and will NEVER, EVER raise his hand to another woman (not unless he’s planning to finish the job so there are no witnesses).  Right, O.J.?

 

TRUTHFULLY, YA’LL. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS A SERIOUS MATTER.

If you or someone you know is the victim of domestic violence, seek help. Here is a link to the NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOTLINE.

INFURIATING UPDATE: The guy who stole Lance Armstrong’s bike is looking at THREE YEARS IN PRISON! CHRIS BROWN for beating a woman. ZERO PRISON TIME! Where is the justice?

  1. This one just baffles me from all sides. I know celebrities have their own justice system, but come on…

  2. I looked into the legalities a little further. Seems stealing a bike is akin to grand theft auto for which the penalities are quite severe. I can only imagine that this goes back to the Old West when, if you stole a man’s horse, it was an offense punishable by hanging. Because, hey, a man needed his horse to survive on the trail. Same with a car. A guy needs his wheels to, you know, drive to the 7-Eleven for his Slurpee. Beating a girl. How does that affect your ability to survive on the trail? Or get a Slurpee?
