    [quote user="dezzzR"] i dont see it that way. it was his first offense, he shouldnt have received any time. you know in the movies where the top cop or da is like " god dammit, i got the mayor up my *** about this!" lol i feel like that happened with this. whos to say the da was just going to offer him 1500 hours of community service. we dont know.

    You be Trollin?

    It's not a Movie Dez :P

    and the fact is (maybe) that Plax was offered a "Good Deal" seriously, I do know I looked it up, 2 months would be a good deal for a plea associated with what Plax was charged with, he didn't take it...that's on HIM and noone else...can't blame Bloomberg for plax's bad decision....maybe his lawyer...but not bloomberg.

    [quote user="DavenIII"][quote user="ny06"]NY has one of the strictest gun laws in the country.


    The state of NY wanted to make an example out of Plax. </P>


    People now have to think twice about carrying a firearm in the state of NY without alicense</P>

    That's what I thought too....until I found out he was offered 2 months...that's a good deal in NY...there wasn't a push to make an example out of Plax....he just decided not to take a good deal..maybe he got greedy thinking laws didn't apply tohim cause he was Plaxico Burress.
    [/quote]</P>


    Well I was not aware of that deal that was offered to Plax. </P>


    He really must be an idiot to turn that deal down, or his lawyer misinformed him about the plea offer. </P>

    [quote user="dezzzR"][quote user="DavenIII"][quote user="dezzzR"]like i said, being that he shot himself seems like punishment enough imo so 2 months for an expired license seems like a lot to me. say what you want but the mayor instigated on the issue without a doubt.
    [/quote]

    Sorry Dez, you are losing me on this one, if infact he was offered two months it pretty much proves Bloomberg had little to no effect on the DA, 2 months is the Average (even a bit below average) Plea Bargain offered for that specific charge, plax is just a moron for not accepting it...if I was his lawyer I wouldn't have let him not accept it, I would have dropped the case if he said no to that....

    I still don't like how Bloomberg actively talked about his opinion on the case...that's not his place...but I can say...pretty confidently, that if plax was offered 2 months bloombergs threats and grandstanding had little to no effect on the DA.

    [quote user="DavenIII"][quote user="Morehead State"]The guy discharged an unregistered handgun in a public place, with no permit to carry. Joe Schmo would have gotten 5 years.[/quote]

    This part is completely untrue Morehead, from what I can tell based on statistics from previous plea's under the same charge, Joe Schmo would have got anywhere from 3-6 months...."Rich" Schmo likely would have gotten off with no jail time at all.
    [/quote]</p>


    Not in NYC Daven.</p>


    [/quote]

    I'm talking about ONLY NYC Morehead, back when this happened I looked that up....Joe Schmo in NYC would most likely have gotten 3-6 Months in Plax's position, there is no doubt in my mind that he was treated differently because of his fame.
    [/quote]you are correct

    OK, are you guys telling me that a guy who stuffed his gun (registered in FL) in his glove box in Florida (his home) and then forgot it was there and drove to NYC is the same as a guy who lives in NY/NJ and stuffs an unregistered, loaded gun in his pants, goes to a crowded club and accidentally discharges it in that club?</p>


    Welcome to Fantasyland.</p>


    [/quote]no morehead. we(well i am anyway) are tellingyou that these gun laws are silly. if i wanted to shoot you, im not going to use my registered hand gun. why? cause police will just trace it back to me and i go to jail for murder even though it would totally be worth it. as long as you have a gun registered in any state in the us, you should be able to carry it anywhere. it was expired, and you cant charge plax for being a moron. people are acting like hes the first person to shoot a gun in a bar.

    [/quote]</p>


    I'm not saying the laws are or aren't silly. I'm saying that they are what they are and that Bloomberg's public statements about Plaxico didn't effect the result of the case.</p>


    Poor decisions by Plaxico and his attorney when they offered him a much more favorable deal than what he eventually got, was the reason.</p>


    [/quote]mayors a powerful man im sure he did.
    [/quote]</p>


    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...burress_2.html</p>


    According to Bob Papa, he was offered 2 months in jail and 1500 hours of community service. And turned it down!!!</p>


    If true, it blows your theory completely out of the water. (and by the way vindicates mine).</p>


    If the mayor's comments had an effect on this case, they would have never made that offer.The articleclaims that Plaxico was deathly afraid to go to prison.</p>


    [/quote]which is still pretty stiff offer for shooting yourself in the leg hahahaha. it doesnt mean anything. he still got 2 years. in his stupid mind he thought he was innocent.
    [/quote]</p>


    How could Bloomberg's position have effected the case if they offered him 2 months in jail?</p>[/quote]like i said, being that he shot himself seems like punishment enough imo so 2 months for an expired license seems like a lot to me. say what you want but the mayor instigated on the issue without a doubt.
    [/quote]Punishment enough, I dunno. Embarassing enough...hell yes!
