Chris Brown

ABC Won't Press Charges

3/23/2011 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown has dodged a bullet after his alleged window-smashing meltdown at "Good Morning America" Tuesday -- because network sources tell TMZ .... ABC has decided NOT to press charges.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the NYPD will not investigate the matter because there is no complaining victim.

That's especially good news for CB -- because he's currently on probation for beating up Rihanna ...
and could have faced prison time if the judge violated his probation on grounds he committed vandalism.

We're told the judge will not violate Chris' probation unless New York prosecutes him ... and that's not going to happen.

No word if Chris will pay for the broken window.

That's why he keeps pulling this crap, because he never faces consequences. Shame on you ABC for not making him suffer the consequences.

Why are you people judging this guy? There are a lot of things out here in the world that's important to talk about and address, this is nothing compared to what's really going on. I support Chris Brown and will always support him. Rhianna is a ugly bitch that needed a good beating.

Robin Roberts was a turd to ask about the past situation. He paid his dues and wants to move on. He was there to promote a new CD and it did seem awkward for her to bring it up and then when it was obvious he didn't want to talk about it, she pushed again. That being said, what he did was outrageous and he is so lucky no one was walking under that window. They could have gotten a shard of glass to the jugular and been killed. ABC should most definitely be pressing charges. What kind of message does this send. I guess anyone should be able to trash a room and destroy property when you are mad and cannot control your temper. He definitely has a major anger problem and chip on his shoulder.

OMG!! GIVE IT A REST WILL YOU!!! Do you not have lives to get on with? He made a TERRIBLE mistake, paid for it with two years of his career and life, still paying for it but still not good enough for you"perfect people"!! The day of the pound of flesh is gone! Get over it. There's plenty of other s-it going ON OTHER THAN TWO year old news! I cannot believe the gaul as if he should CONTINUE to VALIDATE himself until you are satisfied!! WHO ARE YOU!! If he were your son,made a mistake,did penance for it,how would you feel to have him continuously brow beaten and for how long? COME ON NOW! However in the same instance i do agree,Chris Brown should seek anger management classes and stick to them. Where is the person in charge of coaching him on ethics,presentation ect? some money needs to be spent in this area. If you all saw the tape,you MUST agree he did well in answering Robins interrogative questioning well for a so called," CRAZY MAN". Chirs should simply learn to say," i am here today to soly promote my album. Ms Robin make an appointment":) The Problems arose after he answered the first question regarding the relationship. Perhaps learning a lil personal garbage about his interviewers before being interviewed wouldn't hurt.Chris should remember 15 minutes of fame is of the UPMOST importance to journalist,it's their career and sadly for most it's all that really matters!! Lets move on shall we!

I in no way condone what Chris Brown did, nor do I condone his behavior at ABC. However, when will people stop asking him about the incident and just let him be? Charlie Sheen has beaten all of his wives and openly snorted a gallon of coke yet people are buying Team Sheen shirts in droves! Mel Gibson's rants and behavior on tape were horrifying, yet TMZ polls show that people still love him, and hate his ex! Why won't people give Chris Brown the same forgive and forget attitude? Is Rhi Rhi really that loved? I mean seriously, she spends most of her time showing her vagina to everyone who will look at it both on and off stage, and we hold her is such high regard we just won't forgive him?! What a double standard! For the record, I do NOT advocate abuse in any way, shape or form (as i am sure some idiot will accuse me of supporting women being beaten), I am just saying let him be seen now for his merits and music, not his past! The day he came out with his new album, TMZ re-posted pictures of Rhihoho's face all over the website.....now how fair is that?

Hey, how about we start applying the same standard to Sheen & Gibson that is apparently being applied to Brown? Works for me. Why shouldn't all abusive celebrities be held accountable? Forgive & forget only works when the abuser truly owns up to their acts in full and deserves forgiveness. Otherwise, its simply turning your back on the abuse and asking to be abused again and again.

Shame On You.....and I don't mean Chris Brown I'm truly talking about the media who keeps harrassing the young man who is so desperaately trying to move on in his life but you unhappy haters just won't let it go. Chris admitted his mistakes, apologized, complied with all charges against him. But you guys that don't have anything else to do than to criticize, point fingers and try to continue to degrade the young man. Please for your own sake find something else to do and let Chris move on. Let the first person w/o wrong doing, ever in their life truly you can standup and badger this young man, otherwise go sit down. And for Harvey Levin, Yes, Chris Brown's fans will still love him and will continue to support him in inspite of what you,TMZ and other media personels are trying to do to certain persuasions. As long as the media continues to ignore the personal issues of celebrities like, Linzy Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Robert Downy, Jr. and sorry to say George Bush who has robbed this country blind, maybe we could use our enrgy for something more constructive together. Come on everybody let's stay focused on the real issues

of the world. Peace...
