Plaxico Burress Released From Prison

6/6/2011 6:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Plaxico Burress is a free man, 22 months after he began serving a prison sentence for weapons violations.

Plaxico Burress Released From Jail

The NFL star left the Oneida Correctional Facility in central New York, hugging sports agent/guru Drew Rosenhaus on his way out.

Burress pled guilty in August, 2009 to attempted criminal possession of a weapon after accidentally shooting himself in an NYC nightclub.

Burress -- who played for the New York Giants --- wants to play again if an NFL team is willing to roll the dice. 

Can you say Michael Vick?

Burreess exercised his second amendment rights, he just did it in the gulag NYC. Vick is a dispicable piece of crap with some deep character flaws.

Since the NFL decided to give Michael Vick a second chance, they pretty much have to give Palxico a second chance. Michael Vick's crimes were way worse. I don't Plaxico long before he shoots himself in the leg again...hopefully metaphorically this time.

Anyone who is stupid enough to carry a load gun with the safety off in the wasteband of his pants was lucky he just shot himself in the ass. I hope he can still play football because he may not be smart enough to do anything else.

Imagine you were at the club that night and got hit by that bullet - you can't pretend if you got hit and died. Or imagine someone you care about got hit and/or died.

It's good he is out and this is how a black man can easily get demonized in our society in such a way that is just like back in slavery days - just plain ol racism. He has done his time, which was a waste of taxpayer's dollars.

"Imagine you were at the club that night and got hit by that bullet - you can't pretend if you got hit and died. Or imagine someone you care about got hit and/or died."

Imagine if that discharged bullet ricocheted and killed everyone in the club! Imagine if Space Aliens finally decided to make first contact and chose the club as the location, and then right at that historic moment his gun went off and killed the little green man ambassador, and sparked off an intergalactic response with them blowing up Earth and all of it's 6 billion inhabitants, all because Plaxico Burress chose to carry that evil instrument of death! LOL Gotta get that paranoid schizophrenia under control, buddy. Just deal with the facts and reality, the guy didn't hurt anyone but himself and lost 2 years of his life over an unconstitutional law.
