Rev. Al:

Plaxico's Sentence

'Unusually Harsh'

9/23/2009 2:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Reverend Al Sharpton is coming out swinging against Plaxico Burress' 2-year prison sentence -- claiming Plax's punishment is "way out of proportion with the crime."

Rev. Al Sharpton -- Plaxico Burress
The Rev just sent us the following statement:

"I think it is an unusually harsh sentence for someone who was his own victim. He should be punished but his sentence is way out of proportion with the crime.

Celebrities should not be given special treatment but they should not be given exceptional punishments either."

I wonder if this man Sharpton ever knows when to shut his mouth, and just let things be. If Plaxico does his time, and he just keeps to his self, and he does not get into any trouble he can be out within a yr. or less, and he can go with his life. He mad a very
"STUPID" mistake, and he now has to pay the price. Just because he is a NFL player he thinks that he is above the law. No he is not, and that means he should do the time just like a normal man would have to do.

Nothing like having a racist, riot enticing, accessory to murder,
thug like Sharpton coming to your defense. Fat Al should be in jail
for life before this moron should.
