Plaxico's New Home -- Stark Reality

9/23/2009 1:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We've learned Plaxico Burress has arrived at his new temporary home -- the medium-security Ulster Correctional Facility in Napanoch, NY.

This isn't his final destination -- he'll stay at Ulster until processing is completed -- anywhere from a couple of days to a few weeks.

Plax got standard clothing issue, a department ID card and he'll get a standard haircut and shave. He will also be strip searched and fingerprinted. He can make only one 10-minute phone call today.

Plax will be separated from the general population ... confined to a single cell. He gets to leave his cell for an hour in the morning and two hours at night.

For now, it's three meals a day and lights out at 11:00 PM.

This guy accidentally shot himself. Chris Brown beat the hell out of Rihanna and he gets a slap on the wrist. WTF is going on? Let Plaxico go! He is NOT a criminal and he in NOT evil. Chris Brown is evil and he is a criminal! BTW Kanye West shot himself in the foot verbally send him to prison too.

UH SO. He shouldn't be in prison for 2 years for this, but he is now. Why is this newsworthy that he is in a jail somewhere that is not Riker's Island. Again I say SO. I'm a Giants fan by the way.

Yeah, he accidentally shot himself but COULD HAVE KILLED SOMEONE ELSE with his ILLEGAL handgun! What is so hard to understand here? He should feel fortunate that he didn't hurt anyone else & isn't facing a big-ass civil suit for doing it! He'd be out MILLIONS for that. Could have had a plea deal & gotten 6 months but like so many other pampered celebrities who think they are going to get away with their BS, he opted for a trial & crapped out! People are sick to death of gun violence so I say; get in line, get your little duffle bag with your toothbrush, comb, soap, & your prison jammy's & suck it up!!!! Hope to see more sentences like this for these little pr$ck's in the future!!

Dam, it doesn't pay to shoot yourself in the foot. I wonder how many people are behind bars for doing this? Excessive time I think.

Plax was sentenced to prison for a relatively minor crime because he is black.

Chris Brown got a slap on the wrist for a violent crime because he's ... wait a minute! Is it possible that (gasp!) maybe race DOESN'T have anything to do with the sentencing of black people???

Can we please stop glorifying these criminals? Following them like they're on a rock star tour? Chris Brown, Plaxico. He carries his baby yesterday so people get photos of him. Should have been thinking of that baby when he decided to carry that gun into the club.

someone should get him a zip gun asap.

oh wait. imagine how much more TMZ will run with this stupid story if he shot himself in jail too. Cancel the zip gun.

EVERYONE knows hes going to jail and being bounced around until a suitable cell is found is part of the process.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING!

Who me    

Once and for all:

HE IS NOT IN JAIL FOR SHOOTING HIMSELF, HE IS IN JAIL FOR CARRYING A GUN WITHOUT A LICENSE.

SHOOTING HIMSELF IS JUST A BONUS!!!

Is he a criminal? Yes.
Did he deserve two years? Depended on what his record was like. If he had a long record, then yes, if not, then no.
Is there something wrong in a society where people cannot be armed to protect themselves and have to hide it if they are? Yes.
Could Plaxico have been a target? Yes.
Why? Because celebrities are the natural targets of loonies who want to be famous or are nuts. Look at the goofballs who shot Reagan, Lennon, and others.
Bottom Line? We need to know what his record was to see if he deserved it, and secondly, gun laws ought to be changed to make a free people free again.

After all, what do the politicians who make laws have to fear if they are doing good by us, eh?
