Oh yeah...that's right, he beat the @$^!^!!!#@! out of a woman. Glad to know that's a minor community service offense these days!

Hi Fellow Bloggers,

Remember he has one of the BEST attorneys in L.A. Mark Gerragos(ms)does not come CHEAP! Still does not make it right, what Chris did OR what Rihanna did or did not do. Chris is still a little PUNK.

I am sure he is pating Gerragos out the "whazoo" to get a community
service in his little hometown. BIG DEAL!! If Rihanna goes back to him, she is still STUPID, too.

What's UP??    

Oh, but, I'm sure he "Didn't mean it"...he "Loves" her.... How could she not go back to someone who really is "sorry"... I mean...she probably "made him" do it anyway... right??? Bitching at him for texting some other bi**h and all... He just wanted to get laid, and she was cramping his style... seriousely???

She is definitely going back to him....and sadly...she deserves whatever she gets...this was just a pre-view...

I SAW HARVEY LEVIN STUTTERING THE OTHER DAY AS HE TALKED ABOUT CHRIS BROWN. WHAT IS IT ABOUT CHRIS HARVEY, THAT MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE HE'S BEING 'SMUG'. YOU AND ALL MAINSTREAM MEDIA CRUCIFIED THIS CHILD.YOU MADE HIM LOOK LIKE HE HAD KILLED THE WOMAN.THERE ARE TOO MANY OTHER MEN THAT BEAT THEIR MATES SERIOUSLY, EVEN KILLED THEM, BUT THEY DID NOT GET THE DEMONIZATION THAT CHRIS DID. WAS HE WRONG - YES, DEAD WRONG. DID HE DESERVE THE DEMONIZATION AND CONSTANT HARRASSMENT FROM THE MEDIA THAT YOU ALL GAVE HIM - NO - NOONE DOES. AND THE FACT THAT HE TURNED AROUND AND SAID HE LOVED YA'LL TO THE TMZ STAFF SHOULD GIVE YOU A PEAK INTO THE TYPE OF UPBRINGING HE'S HAD. A VERY SPIRITUAL AND DOWN TO EARTH MOTHER THAT ADORES HER SON AND HAS INSTILLED RESPECTFULLNESS AND DECENCY IN THIS KID.YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED HIM OVER HIS CAREER - I WAS VERY IMPRESSED FROM THE DAY HE WENT BACK TO HIGH SCHOOL AS A STAR AND SAID 'YES SIR' TO HIS PRINCIPAL, UP TO THE TIMES HE WAS HUMBLED BY RECEIVING 3 AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS - SCRATCHING HIS HEAD SAYING THAT HE THOUGHT LIL WAYNE DESERVED THE THIRD ONE. MAYBE YOU ARE SO USED TO THE USUAL HOLLYWOOD BRATS, HARVEY AND STAFF, THAT YOU DON'T KNOW DECENCY WHEN YOU SEE IT. I'M NOT SAYING HE DOES NOT HAVE ANGER ISSUES OR DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH THE PRESSURES OF SUPERSTARDOM AND A OBBESSIVE GIRLFRIEND AT THE SAME TIME, JUST SAYING THAT THE BASIC DECENCY IS IN THE KID - SO LEAVE HIM THE HELL ALONE AND TALK ABOUT ALL THE REAL CROOKS - THE GUY THAT JUST KILLED HIS MATE, AND OTHERS.

The great thing about community service is ... it is not hard to find people or groups to just sign off on your community sevice hours. You really don't have to do much of anything, and many times just show up, get signed off, and leave. Have fun Chris, I am sure you will be able to find a group like this!!!!

Yeah well, thats what I thought was going to happen. That little son of a bitch is getting away with it, community service or not. And, he WILL do it again to someone eles. Shoot, I've heard about him hitting his mom too. Oh well, what can you do.

Forget this Chris Brown crap...

Harvey, you need to make a post about whether or not this is Michael getting out of the Coroner van or not.

Debunk this for us Harvey. Why was this video leaked today, 2 months after MJ's disappearance?

WTF is going on???

What kind of world do we live in where beating our girlfriends and wives is not allowed? This is ridiculous. You go Chris Brown. Put that woman in her place.

You would think that with more positive BLACK MEN out there, that their communities would start to improve and that less crime would occur. But since the majority of black men are out looking for WHITE WOMEN, instead of their own women, and looking to break the law, abandoning their children and leaving them for black women to raise alone, their communities are in the toilet. I am shocked when I see a black married couple with children. You guys need to be men and step up to the plate. Stop acting like and dressing like little BOYS.

#28, GET REAL, THIS IS HOW THE ABUSE STARTS AND ESCULATES. YOU TALK ABOUT HIM BEING DECENT. NO DECENT PERSON IN HIS RIGHT MIND WOULD BE TALKING TO ANOTHER FEMALE UNLESS IT'S HIS MOM OR SISTER, WHILE HE HAS HIS GIRLFRIEND IN THE CAR. ME AS A GUT WOULD NOT WANT MY GIRL TALKING TO ANOTHER GUY WHILE I'M AROUND EITHER. SO IT WORKS BOTH WAYS, JUST COMMON SENSE.

@#32 - HE WAS NOT TALKING TO ANOTHER GIRL...RIHANNA PICKED UP HIS PHONE AND READ A TEXT THAT HAD BEEN SENT TO HIM BY ANOTHER GIRL. WHAT 19 YEAR OLD BOY WITH THAT KIND OF STARDOM DOESN'T HAVE WOMEN ALL OVER THEM. I DON'T SEE WHY EITHER OF THEM TRIED TO BE IN A COMMITTED RELATIONSHIP IF THEY WEREN'T READY. AND BY THE WAY, RUMORS HAD IT THAT THEY HAD BROKEN UP BEFORE THIS INCIDENT, BUT WENT TOGETHER TO THE GRAMMY PRE PARTY DUE TO THEIR MANAGERS INSISTING - FOR PR.
