Everyone knows what happened. If you don't because you live under a rock, here's a run down. Plaxico Burress went into a nightclub with a loaded gun with the safety off in his pants. It slipped at some point, fell to the ground, went off and the bullet hit him in the leg. He then went to a hospital claiming to be Harris Smith and said he was shot at Applebee's. After turning himself in, he said there were extenuating circumstances. He said he was afraid for his life. Now the big question is: What should his punishment be?
I personally think he should be gone from the NFL for the rest of the year, sorry Giants fans. He should also face jail time. There was a campaign recently that if you're caught with a firearm, you go to jail. Just because he won a super bowl shouldn't make him any different.
If you're worried about your safety, you're in the wrong night club. If you're worried about getting robbed, don't take your million dollars in bling out with you. I think this is such an irresponsible and blatantly stupid decision by Burress. Your team is geared up to be in the super bowl again and THIS is what you do?
