Gilbert Arenas Dodges Bullet in Sentencing

3/26/2010 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gilbert Arenas got a huge break today -- he won't be going to jail.

Arenas was just sentenced to 30 days in a halfway house for his gun-wielding locker room confrontation last year with one of his Washington Wizards teammates.

Arenas pled guilty on January 15 to one felony count of carrying a pistol without a license.

Prosecutors were gunning for three months in jail.

So you run around and point a gun at people and only get 30 days at a halfway house. Why don't you come down here to Florida and try that. Jack arse

oh yeah    

say it again can't give a black man a break. the big time criminals are the powerful white men wearing suits sitting in their office chair. they cultivate the environment for crime to happen. their would be no drug problems if they stop shipping the chemicals needed to produce cocaine.
by keeping the poor down they and their offspring will remain wealthy. they commit crime on a much grander scale while sentences the black man for small crime.

Rather be an Athiest    

THAT'S IT? He is stupid, arrogant, reckless and devoid of compassion for his fellow man enough to bring a gun to a public place and all he gets is a 30 day vacation? To me, he is worse than a drunk driver. Who in their right mind carries a gun?
