I am a bit disturbed by this. Sure Burress broke the law and deserves to be punished and honestly, his sentence may be appropriate for his transgression. My issue is that Burress only hurt himself (sure that is not the reason for his arrest) and yet he is to serve 2 years in jail. Yet...Donte Stallworth KILLS a man and thanks to the miracle of money, barely gets a slap on the wrist. Please don't throw out 'intent' as a reason either. If you choose to drive after drinking, there is intent there as well. It's these inequities in our legal system that drive me nuts. The judges and courts that subjectively interpret the law and allow things like money, status and celebrity to skew our legal system. I know that every day thousands of proceedings take place, thousands of judges and courts and even one or two lawyers ( :twisted: ) do the right thing, but it is the corrupt/compromised few that ruin my perception of the U.S. legal system.

Yep but he plead guilty and will pay the price. Just because some other knucklehead got lucky, doesn't mean he should too.
