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.

And for the record, I am not saying Plaxico shouldn't be treated like everyone else, I just feel his punishment was way too harsh expecially when you see what Michael Vick got for his "crimes." Chris Brown is doing his time. I am not defending him nor would I ever defend anyone who beats on another person, but cut the kid a break. I think he has learned a valuable less from all of this. And weren't we all young once? Haven't we all made our fair share of mistakes? Some worst or deeper than others? Just saying...

He had a gun in a nightclub. How would you feel if he shot someone else instead of himself? NY has strict gun laws...he got a typical jail term...he could have gotten more. You don't bring guns out into a crowded public venue.

Donte Stallworth kills a man while driving drunk and gets off with only a 30 day sentence.......Plaxico Burress shoots himself in the leg and gets 2 years.......only in America!!! Burress has already made himself look like a fool and could have possibly ended his career in the NFL......isn't that punishment enough? Tell ya what...let him out of jail and make him wear a Jersey that says Cheddar Bob Burress on the back for the next two seasons.....justice served.

This just goes to show how screwed up America has become and the mindset of the legislature that write these insane laws to ""FIX"" what's wrong with America, it's making things worse.

I don't know the charges, but the gun was not discharged in the process of a crime, robbery etc, it was an accidental discharge of a weapon [ not too bright mind you ]

[ to the TMZ dude that said it could have done this or that....so, you're in favor of thought crimes, for what could have happened? You have no idea what you are standing up for! ]

At most community service and and a fine/as a misdemeanor, not a felony


if the same logic was applied across the board as was applied here, the whole country could end up getting locked up! Totally over the top.

The difference between Vick, Brown and Burress is they were all convicted in different states. Laws are different and so are the convictions. He broke a law and should serve the punishment as decided by the New York courts.
