Plaxico Arrives at Rikers Island

9/22/2009 2:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Plaxico BurressWe've learned Plaxico Burress arrived at Rikers Island jail in New York at 1:20 PM ET, this according to Deputy Commissioner for NYC Dept. of Corrections Steve Morello.

We're told Plax's stay will be a short one -- he'll be shipped off tomorrow to his next destination ... Fishkill Correctional Facility.

While Plax is behind bars at Rikers, we're told he'll be staying in an individual cell -- meaning no cell mate -- which includes a mattress, sheet and blanket, drinking cup, faucet, toilet, toilet paper and soap.

Also, we're told Plax will shower separately because of his celebrity status -- so he can drop the soap all he wants.

We're told Plax's meals will be delivered to his cell -- for dinner tonight he'll have hot dogs, beans, whole wheat bread and fruit. For breakfast tomorrow he'll get fruit, grits, whole wheat bread and his choice of coffee or tea.

Too bad your name isn't Tom Brady or Brett Farve. What the heck makes you think that you can do the same thing white people can do and get away with it? No matter how rich you or any other Black person get in this country, just remember one thing: At the end of the day the United States of America belongs to White people and White people only. The Indians found that out the hard way. You can't even find one at a Thanksgiving Parade. They made sure of that.

I must say this man is going to have one bad gansta street credit when he gets out. He won the superbowl, signed a huge contract, but he was sooo bad that he shot himself in the leg just to prove how gansta-bad he truly is.

What isn't being stated is why is going to jail for the two years. It's against the law to carry a concealed weapon in New York City. That law has been on the books for a few years to try and stop the killings. If the stupid ass hole thinks he is above the law, let him do the time. I think he got off with too light a sentence!

I struggle to apply logic to a millionaire carrying an illegal gun, stuffed down his pants, into a nightclub. He couldn't afford a holster? Too cheap to hire a bodyguard?
Did he think would get away with actually using the gun at the club? It's a good thing he didn't pull and fire the gun. He would end up facing the same charges plus brandishing and threatening offences. Plaxico did it all to himself. He doesn't deserve sympathy.

The man's sentence seems like overkill to me and yes, I'm white.
He accidentally shot HImself, good grief, no one else got hurt.
THIs sentence is clear out of reason.

TWO YEARS is CRAZY, I can see why he would own a gun, these guys are targets for robberies one NFL player was shot, robbed and will never walk again. Buying an illegal gun was wrong. Two years is just wrong.

justsaying - two things; neither Tom Brady or Brett Favre have ever been accused or convicted of weapons charges. And generally speaking, Native Americans don't celebrate or even recognize the Thanksgiving holiday. So much for your racist rants.

Our justice system is STUPID! Two years of our tax dollars going to pay for this stupid incident, when he should be paying us! Why didn't the courts just fine him? Aren't they overcrowded anyway? What a waste of a so-called criminal! There are far more serious criminals that need to be locked up than a talented man such as him (probably with no priors)! I hope he gets released early!

Send Jessica Simpson to Fishkill for 2 years to cure her of her gross stupidity!
