  • Plaxico Burress

    http://sports.espn.go.com/new-york/n...ory?id=5517027

    Former New York Giants Super Bowl star Plaxico Burress has come up short in his bid for work release during his two-year prison sentence in a gun case, a denial that could keep him behind bars until at least next spring, prison officials said Tuesday.
    Anyone else feel like he is getting a raw deal?

    He broke the law I understand that but I think the message has been sent loud and clear by now.

    I think its important to have strong gun laws and if he followed them he wouldn't be in jail.

    He didn't break a law maliciously, but he still did break a law. I was for the sentence, but at this point I would support a work release for Burress, who will likely never start another game at this point.

      Others have done much worse then him and gotten off way easier. Its a poor penal system.

          How long did Jerramy Stevens (anal rapist and drunk driver), Leonard Little (drunk driving killer), or Donte Stallworth (drunk driving killer) spend in jail? A total of 37 days.

          Yet Plaxico Burress shoots himself and is still in prison, away from his wife and children, because some asshat politician in NY wants to make an example of him. I don't think Burress should've been given a slap on the wrist but his punishment in this case is not at all consistent with that given to other athletes. His biggest mistake was being an idiot in New York City.

          Who is benefiting from his continued imprisonment? Are violent crimes down? Is society better because Plaxico Burress is behind bars? It's ridiculous.

            what should have happened is he should have been sentenced to 2000 hours community service with a focus on gun safety and gun violence prevention and a probationary sentence of 2 years if he ****** up.....no good has come of him going to jail. The state of NY could of capitalized on his popularity by leverage his experience and name but no they do the politically smart thing, which results in no true gains

              This is exactly how I feel.

              It's a joke.

                Not that it has much to do with Burress, but after the stricter gun laws were put in place, gun crimes are down in New York City.

                I completely agree that the system needs fixed, but stricter gun laws have helped NYC, and not enforcing them would hurt any progress they've made.

                  The law could've been enforced without seeking the max penalty.

                      Feel bad for him. I thought he would have gotten out earlier. He is doing around the same amount of time as Mike Vick and Vick killed a bunch of dogs and ran a dog fighting business while he has a gun illegally on him in a club for protection and accidently shoots himself.

                        At least hes got a ring. I mean i agree hes done his time. But i just dont see him ever being the play maker that he was again. So no real point to care anymore.

                            Yeah but he's gunna have to sell his ring when he has to income and his wife leaves him and he needs to make child support payments.

                            I agree with the sentiment in this thread, the guy got a raw deal, especially in comparison to other players we've seen mess up. I mean, he shot himself. Isn't that a painful and embarrassing enough punishment in itself?

                              Well it would have been more embarrassing had he shot his dick off... Just saying.
