Frank Ocean

NOT Pressing Charges

Against Chris Brown

breaking news

0202_frank_ocean2Frank Ocean says he WILL NOT press charges against Chris Brown after last week's parking lot brawl.

Frank wrote a post on his Tumblr page to explain his decision, saying, "As a child I thought if someone jumped me it would result in me murdering or mutilating a man. But as a man I am not a killer."

He continued, "I’ll choose sanity. No criminal charges. No civil lawsuit. Forgiveness, albeit difficult, is wisdom. peace, albeit trite, is what I want in my short life. Peace.”

As TMZ first reported, Frank and CB got into a physical altercation last week outside a recording studio in L.A -- allegedly over a highly coveted parking spot.

You'll recall ... a witness on scene said CB threw the first punch and according to cops Chris was named as a suspect in the battery case. Sources close to Chris remained adamant Frank came at him.

Good Frankie -- because you started it!

Why argue over a parking space? Chris was parked there already. When arrived to gripe with your ego, HE REACHED OUT TO SHAKE YOUR HAND.

Why didn't you just shake his frickin hand Frank since you pretend to be so noble and profound in your songs? You WERE may favorite new artist and I was completely shocked at your behavior.

Even now on Tumblr, you're acting like you're being the bigger man by not pressing charges. Ego! Please! Why would you? You got a frickin hand scratch.

Get over yourself. Next time when someone is trying to quell a conflict with a handshake, just do it!

Chris is normally an azzhole, but this time the problem was you!

P.S. I think it's good tho that you finally came to your senses. I'm sure Chris can get himself sent to jail over something more substantial than that stupid, unnecessary fight.

Chris Brown needs to have a run in with those thugs that are looking for Rick Ross so we can finally be done with him.

Too bad Frank!.. You don't have to physically harm someone but you can do MORE damage by not holding others LEGALLY accountable for their actions. Sounds like Fist Brown's people got to you. Too bad.

Not pressing charges? What a fking wuss! Thats the problem, no one presses charges on this guy for his violent behavior and he thinks its perfectly ok to keep on doing it because everyone lets him get away with it.
