Eight is Enough for The Game

3/10/2008 10:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The GameThe Game is out of jail after serving just eight days out of a possible 60, TMZ has just learned.

The rapper -- real name Jayceon Taylor -- walked out of Twin Towers Correctional Facility, according to his lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley, after serving less than a fifth of his sentence for pleading no contest to a felony charge of possession of a firearm in a school zone.

Steve Whitmore, L.A. County Sheriff's Department spokesperson, tells us The Game was released early due to overcrowding.

This is BS.
I do not care how crowded the system is, carrying a weapon on school grounds is UNEXCUSEABLE, period.
He should have had to do 60 months . This is a prime example of why the crime in this nation is so bad.
It's not because we are overpopulating too quickly, it's because they let the real freaking criminals go.
In Texas, this wouldn't happen. No 1/6 of sentences because of over-crowding.

What is up with celebrities doing a small fraction of their sentences? I can deal with the cops and the DA deciding not to bring charges because either no crime was committed or there isn't enough evidence but when they have someone dead to rights, convicted and charged, (and pleading no contest is the same thing as being convicted it just saved the courts time and money) they should do their time. What ever happened to don't do the crime if you can't do the time. Seems like celebrities don't have to worry about that.

That sounds about right for Hollyweird. Had he served much more I would have been yelling discrimination. Now get you butt back in the studio and give us that Cali fiyah!

how dumb    

Gee, funny how I don't hear ONE WORD about "favortism" regarding the Game's early release... when thats ALL I READ when Nicole Richie or Lindsay or whomever was released early.

I guess its only ok if the person released early is of color. Then no one seems to have any complaints.

It would be so unfair to complain about him when Lindsey Lohan ran over someone's foot, drunk with drugs in her pockets and jacking a car then chasing her assistant and her mom down. She could have killed so many people that night. Where do you draw the line. I believe one day one of these stars will run over and killed someone or them self. The legal system is not doing these stars any favor by letter them get away with this stuff.
