Former New York Giants wide reciever Plaxico Buress was sentenced to a 2 year jail term on Tuesday.  he was sentenced for carrying a fire arm that wasn't registered into a nightclub, where he shot himself in the leg.

Let me state that again. Plaxico, late last year, went to a nightclub in New York, with a gun, which he had in his sweats, the gun went off and he shot himself in the leg. He did not shoot anyone else.  It was not reported to police but they found out. He shot himself...and got 2 years jail time.  Wow.

Let's see...Michael Vick kills dogs....gets 2 years and then is allowed back into the NFL. Dont'e Stallworth runs someone over and kills him, makes a settlement with the family for manslaughter charges, gets a few days jail time and a 1 year suspension from the NFL. Is something wrong here?

Straight up, he was stupid for bringing the gun to the club. But think about this, one bad night, we all have them, maybe not with a loaded gun in our sweats, but one bad night and the guy gets 2 years in jail and his career is pretty much over.  That is some messed up crap.

What do you think? Did the punishment fit the crime?-Dr.FB
