[quote user="DavenIII"]It's a damn shame they couldn't treat him fairly and decided to make an example out of him because of his fame.
i highly agree. **** bloomburg.
Every american has a right to defend themselves regardless if its registered
if he shot someone trying to break into his home with the same gunhe still would of been charged. this country is *** backwards.
hes still an idiot for rocking a glock in his sweatpants and hes an idiot for not getting it registered, but still 2 years?!?
He didnt get harsher treatment because of his fame. He got time off because of his fame. His crime was real, and if me or you had committed it, it REQUIRES a 3.5 year minimum sentence. He has the right to defend himself and carry a pistol, but it is required by law to have it registred and not be toting it in a club in your sweatpants which can put others in dirrect physical harm.
Plax will be out in a year and a half if he has good behaviour. His next football year will be 2012, if he comes back which I doubt.
He gets what he deserves. Maybe it is a little harsh but that is the law. How different would everyones opinion be if that bullet hit and killed Pierce instead of wounding Plax. It was a matter of inches im sure.
