Firstly, anyone with a brain would know Chris doesn’t decide when to do the domestic violence classes, it is the court decision. Even if he has to perform an event of some sort, and he has domestic violence class that day, he still HAS to go. Secondly, Chris brown didn’t to get off easy, any American in his position, as first time offender would get a community service regardless, no jail time. And again he doesn’t get to choose how or when he does the community service. HE HAS NO COICE WHATSOEVER. Lastly, I read that Chris was enjoying himself after the attack. WRONG! It was just rumours otherwise he would have violated his probation. His probation is for the next five years, if he does any little thing, he will go to PRISON. So don’t underestimate the probation. T.I has violated his probation, and went to jail. Go probation is hardly easy to get through for 2 years let alone three years.
I actually do think Chris is remorseful but whether he changed or not, will it’s too early to tell. No one can say he change nor can anyone say he hasn’t. Only time will tell.

Only 7 classes completed? That is a bunch of crap. For the classes to be effective they must be done weekly. He still is in denial and will not accept responsibility. This should be a violation right there. Was he "partying" to much to go?

Uh, he was just sentenced in September, started a week or two after and has been going weekly. How many did you expect him to have?

Am sure he threw more than seven punches. My concern is the judge didn't catch the obvious.

Chris's judge seems a little dim. But so is the public as TMZ hasn't identified the judge who thinks seven classes so far is just fine. Remember, judges are *elected* but if the public isn't aware of the judicial record....then history keeps repeating itself.

Domestic violence is one that tends to escalate and can become fatal. This was escalating and Chris could man up and take the consequences or act like a spoiled child. Rhianna could not go out in public while her injuries healed, Chris was out having fun like nothing happened. Disgusting!

WAIT he has only done 100 hours of community serivce? that's less than 13 8 hour days since what aug/sept. guess he's not working as hard as he wants people to think. and he's only done 7 dv classes? i'm sure he's learned so much about himself. give me a break. he's more focused on people forgiving him to save his career than for what he really did.

You know what-he has done more to apologize and try and make things right than anyone else I have seen (celebrity wise). He said he is sorry, he is not making any excuses for himself and I think he is actually doing all the right things.

I applaud him for speaking out against domestic violence. He is a very young man who made a mistake and doing a great job at doing everything that has been asked of him and then some.

You go Chris! I think you are doing an excellent job!

If I had a talk show-I would let him on it to continue to speak out against what happened and let both young men and women know how to handle themselves more appropriately in situations. Oprah is a total joke!

I am not a fan of Chris Brown, however, I do wish him success in his rehabilitation. He does possess artistic talent; whether it is my taste or not isn't the issue, I do recognize his abilities. He's right on track with his work program and likely started his classes and kept up with same once they booked him in (they don't start immediately, there's usually a waiting period). I sincerely hope he benefits from all that is being done for him - I think being scrutinized by the public eye will be helpful.
