Chris Brown, the singer who seems to have an ever-growing criminal history, is now behind bars.
It looks like Chris Brown could possibly get out of jail as soon as April 23, but the judge ruling on Brown’s case should really lay the hammer down on him and keep him locked up for a significant length of time — maybe even his maximum sentence of four years.
One month in jail simply wouldn’t be enough for Brown, and it would frankly be doing a disservice to justice.
People may think locking up Chris Brown for four years would be excessive, but it’s really not at all.
Having a beautiful voice and making tons of dough with songs like “Forever,” and “Look at Me Now” may be cool and all, but it doesn’t entitle Brown to receiving a “Get out of Jail Free” card from the judge.
Here are two reasons why it is important Chris Brown stay locked up for a significant amount of time:
He’s a repeat, repeat, repeat offender
Remember how Chris Brown famously beat the tar out of poor Rihanna not too long ago? The photos of that incident were brutal.
Well, because of that incident, Brown was put on probation. Since then, he’s violated his terms of probation, which is why he’s in such hot water.
To make a long story short, after already being on a tight leash because of the Rihanna incident, Brown has been under the court’s watch even more since he allegedly punched a guy outside of a hotel in November.
Since he jacked the guy in the face, the court ordered he go to rehab, and he basically continually misbehaved and more or less told the judge “No, no, no,” to quote the late Amy Winehouse.
Since that time, he’s already been kicked out of two rehab facilities, according to CNN, and he just got kicked out of a third.
Brown was most recently kicked out of this third rehab program because he was accused of touching another female patient in the facility, which was against the probation terms he has as a result of whooping Rihanna so severely. His probation said he had to stay at least two feet away from all women.
He also allegedly said negative things about rehab during group therapy meetings and refused a random drug check, before eventually changing his mind, according to TMZ.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that Brown just can’t seem to learn his lesson. To quote a Taylor Swift song, Brown keeps getting in “Trouble, trouble, trouble…”
Spending some time in a jail cell will do him some good. It will give him a chance to reflect and think about his crimes.
He’s had enough chances, and now he needs to do some time. If you do the crime, you need to be ready to do the time.
He shouldn’t get any special treatment
Do you really think an average guy off the street would get this many chances? Heck no!
There is no way your typical guy would get to go to three separate rehab facilities before finally facing some jail time.
The only reason Brown got so many chances is because he’s a celebrity. To be honest, that’s really, really not fair, and everyone knows this.
Celebrities always seem to get off the hook much easier than their fans, and this needs to stop.
So to quote a few of Chris Brown’s song titles, he should stop saying “Don’t Judge Me” to the courts, decide that he just needs to “Say Goodbye,” and hope he doesn’t have to stay in jail “Forever.”
Chris will probably yell “Don’t Wake Me Up!” but spending some time in jail will be just the wake-up call he needs.
