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.

Wonderful, send these 2 morons to Camp David to settle a dispute over parking space. Both of these guys will continue to run into others with similar issues ending in bleak future for everyone involved.

It fascinates me that Chris Brown does things like break windows at TV station, beat women unconscious and jump guys and NO ONE wants to press charges against him. Conclusion? Chris Brown is a damn wizard.

Wonder if Frank Ocean would have not pressed charges and said the same thing if it was a rich, white celeb who assaulted him, like, for example, Mel Gibson.
