Were I Burress, I don't know that I could let this incident go without a lawsuit against the bar for not checking his weapon at the door.
agree with this... also a 2 year jail sentence? why? i understand he most likely won't serve all 2 years, but looking at the 'big three' of the bad boys in the past 2 years...
Vick - Served around 2 years for dog fighting + + +
Burress - now 'serving' 2 years for shooting himself, not shooting someone else or attempting or thinking about attempting any harm on anyone else
then there is this one:
Stallworth - what was it 2 months in jail? he killed a man while driving drunk, wether or not 'the pedestrian stepped into the road'. its still the principal of the fact that the 2 before him did wrong, but didn't kill another human being (vick in ways was just as morally bad) but he basically gets a slap on the wrists compared to the other to?
where does the law stand, and what does that say about the judicial system? trying to make statements about the other 2 because they were bigger name players at the time of their incidences or what?
