Chris Brown
will spend Sunday on tragically-hip Melrose Ave. in L.A. ... curious indeed, since he's supposedly in lockdown rehab.  But we've learned, the rehab joint gave him a day pass.

Chris won't be shopping in stores that sell overpriced, vintage gadgets.  He's a featured celeb at the XMAS toy drive, where people come with unwrapped toys for underprivileged kids.

We're told Brown and his girlfriend Karrueche Tran will be front and center to mingle with everyone.

As for why Chris got a pass ... 2 reasons.  It's a worthy event, and we're told the rehab folks actually think it will be good for Chris' treatment -- to show how satisfying it is to participate in non-violent activities.

whats wrong with him being around children? He loves them. Just because him and Rihanna had a clash which ended terribly doesnt mean he's gonna beat every woman he passes by dumbasses!!! he hit ONE woman. It was not and will never be okay but yall need to leave the dude alone.All the **** yall say to him is why he reacts the way he does. people telling him to "die" and what not is going over the top. LEAVE HIM ALONE and he's just as sweet. Watching his interviews you will see how goofy and chill he is. He really isnt a bad person at all and i wish some of you would just take the time and PAY ATTENTION and realize that. He made ONE mistake when he was a teenager and now he gets too much hate. Out of ALL the damn guy celebs like Charlie sheen etc who have beat multiple woman you guys wanna stay stuck on the youngin? I never see anyone call Charlie a woman beater. I'm not sitting here to say it was okay for Chris to hit Rihanna even if she did hit him with her stilettos and cluck him in the face before time cuz that was sooooo wrong for him to do either way. But I just dont feel like someone needs this much hate over something they did when they were younger. He admitted what he did was wrong, apologized, and did what he had to do. BUILD A BRIDGE AND GET OVER IT. Y'all act like he beat you...Rihanna forgave him and even admitted How much of a sweetheart he is so you all can leave him alone too. BYE.

This s not about Rihanna. It is about California law which is not respected nor followed by those who were voted to protect the state and its citizens against what is sampled, here.
