Chris Brown -- No Jail Time

Let's review briefly the system of justice that we have in America (all crimes involved famous black men, so the issue here is not race or ability to pay a lawyer):

1) Shoot yourself in the leg -- 2 years in prison.

2) Engage in a dog fighting operation -- 18 months in prison.

3) Run over and kill a pedestrian while you are drunk -- 24 days in jail.

4) Beat the living hell out of your girlfriend -- no jail time.

What a wonderful world we live in.

Now, those are selective anecdotes if I ever saw any. You know full well that Bryant McKinnie got no jail time for beating a bouncer over the head with a metal pole. We must, accordingly, conclude that: (a) similar crimes are being treated similarly; and (b) the justice system is functioning well. Right?

My understanding was that he swung and missed.

Well, in that case, he should have been cleared of all wrong-doing immediately.
