This morning on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" show after a previewing a clip for tonights show with Brown saying "it's a blur, I don't remember the incident." I thought it interesting that Chris Brown was wearing a trust me blue sweater, shirt and matching blue bow tie. The MSNBC panel asked the question how is it "that Chris Brown received no jail time? Who is the Judge? And how can foootball player Michael Vick receive serious prison time for killing dogs and Brown receives no jail time" says host Joe Scarborough. All excellent questions. The answer is simple, Chris Brown is immune because what he does for a living provides a cushy lifestyle for hundreds of influential people who won't make a dime if Brown served jail time.
The Los Angeles District Attorney's office in cutting a deal sends a clear message to victims: felony battery is not against the law, especially when the offender has deep green pockets or in this case likely several signed cases of autograph cd's and tickets for future concert events?
It looks like Wednesday CNN evening will host an hour of "Offender Television."
