Chris Brown Takes Anger Management Classes

Chris Brown Takes Anger Management Classes

Rihanna will head back to Los Angeles for Chris Brown’s March 5 court date.

A source tells the Daily News that she has to testify and that if Chris is convicted, he won’t face jail time because the Feb. 8 altercation was his first offense.

Meanwhile, per the suggestion of his crisis PR rep Michael Sitrick, Chris attended his first anger management class Monday afternoon in Glendale, Calif. The 19-year-old singer has not been ordered to go, but the effort might help him look better to the public and in court.

    It seems that he doesn’t think he needs to go, he’s just using it to help his case. His friends are as stupid as he is.

    No matter his reasons for doing it, I sincerely hope it helps him because he obviously needs it. Unfortunately for him, it’s going to take a very very long time for people to get over this offence.

    Too bad hardly anybody is gonna forgive him after this.
    But at least he’s getting the help he so desperately needs.
    You just don’t hit women, Chris.

    So Charles Barkley goes to jail for a DUI, and Michael Vicks goes to jail for dogs, but Chris Brown doesn’t go to jail for assault? Huh.

    BTW: Rihanna does not have to show up in court to testify against him for this hearing. This is a hearing to charge him. They have enough evidence. They don’t need her. She is represented by the D.A.

    IMO, chris brown belongs to the jail, not some anger management sessions.

    i don’t think even anger management classes will help save his image!

    It seems odd that he wouldn’t get jail time – first offense or not. What does it say to broader society, that we each get one chance to beat someone before really being punished. If true this seems really unjust.

    Chris Brown is an A-Hole? But why is he the only one being crucified? RIHANNA HIT HIM FIRST, she admitted to that.

    As much as it’s wrong for a man to hit a woman, a woman should never hit a man.

    Way to set an example to the world, People. Sympathy for someone who is also an abuser….

    Whatever, Rihanna isn’t represented by the DA. The DA decided to go forward with the case. Rihanna herself isn’t pressing charges and so doesn’t have to show up.

    Notice also, that it’s no longer classified as domestic violence, but as an “altercation”, which to me shows that Rihanna and Chris Brown got into a fight, in which both parties were at fault. The state decided to charge Brown because of Rihanna’s injuries, which haven’t yet been concluded the fault of Brown. Brown can present evidence that the injuries were not caused by him, but by something else, e.g., her forehead hitting the dashboard when he hit the breaks.

    Knots on your forehead are generally caused by one’s head hitting a hard surface, e.g., a dashboard. Most people when throwing a punch try to avoid a hard surface like a forward hit, because that sh*it hurts your own fist!!!!

    I say all this to say that Brown and Rihanna are both at fault for acting foolishly. Don’t forgive Brown if you don’t want to, but stop putting Rihanna on a pedastal as Domestic Violence victim of the damn year!

    joanna u r crazy. U need to go to some classes too. But you aren’t the only one. I don’t care if Rihanna did hit him. It is irrelevant. She was beaten. As in, hit many times. BEATEN. They have pictures. This was beyond the girl friend/boy friend spat.

    This as an assault. It was a crime. Wake up. Quit rationalizing. You need to get your head on straight. Some of you are fools. Too many people always blame the vicitm, as if there is something they can control. Some of you really need to go down to the police station and talk to someone. Better yet, go to one of the shelters for women who are domestic violence victims.

    This isn’t some high school B.S. This is assault. A crime. Please understand what happened here. All this nonsense about who started it, what caused it, it is all irrelevant. This wasn’t a smack, this was a beating. Chris Brown committed a crime. Get your head around it. Deal with it.

    Chris had no injuries. Except his knuckles were red from hitting her.

    He will not face jail time!!! isn’t this the same place which went out of its way to put Paris Hilton in jail? Where’s the anger of the LA Prosecutor who spared no expense in embarrassing Paris Hilton before the nation and the world to teach her the lesson that celebrities are not exempt? What sort of message is this sending? That an abuser can offer apologies and take anger-management classes, go before possibly the same idiot judge who sentenced Paris and get scolded?

    OK, its the law, now the question becomes, who will avenge Rihanna? Is there any Knight who will do the right thing and greet Chris with an applause of hands and feet? If Rihanna does or does not press charges, Chris Brown goes free? Women then cannot rely on the courts to defend them. Its almost as if she’s being punished again by TMZ and now the feeble law.

    Understand. These are the same people, who made it a prioriity to punish Paris Hilton. Like her or not she was victim of an illegal Inquisition by renegrade Catholics abusing US law. There was even a statement from The Vatican during her trial about ‘celebrity responsibility’ which is evidence of their hidden hand.

    However Chris Brown goes free for deliberately trying to ruin the beauty of Rihanna. This is typical of Misogynist law and don’t we dare accuse the Taliban of such without looking at ourselves.

    If the LA courts do not sentence Chris and there is no Knight who will defend Rihanna’s honour, then we as a people ain’t worth a she-it.

    And it s not about Rihanna alone, thus spells doom for all those who will now be victimised in anonymity because their fake thug hip-hop ‘boy’ friends have just been given the Green Light.

    these sources are sketchy. Rihanna isn’t required to show up to his court date. The DA is filing charges not Rihanna. Since his initial hearing hasn’t occurred, no one knows what he’ll be charged with aside from the DA and investigators therefore these sources can’t have a clue what his punishment would be. Sure, being a first time offender is helpful but that won’t eradicate jail time nor is it the only factor a judge will consider.
