Yes , I agree. Celebrities who break the law should face stricter penalties. Reasons being children are growing up to do the same things that they are doing and they think is okay . It is not . Celebrities are role models for children and adults themselves so they say. Well, if that is so why do they do the things that they do ? If they so called " Do it for the fans " ? Why are they showing the fans to do what i do . Drink . Smoke . Abuse. Rape and etc. People now-a-days take things like that and do it . Just to be like Mila J or Drake or even Chris Brown. Fans watch just like children watch their older brothers and sister. They do as them. Lessons will be learned after Chris Brown is locked up for hitting on Rihanna . Chris will noticed that he cant be hitting on woman. People will notice that he notice that and stop the madness. Follow the leader is bad . Well Follow Jay Z is bad . If Jay Z jumps on Beyonce other people will start to think it is okay to jump on their wives and girlfriend . Maybe even children. Leading the path needs to work its way up to these minds of people.

- No. If Jay-Z assaults Beyonce the majority of his fans will think less of him. The public liked Chris Brown until he hit Rihanna, since then he has seen a major decline in record sales. His first two albums went double platinum , since the incident in 2009 he has released 4 albums, all have to date failed to reach the platinum mark.

- If you want to talk Jay-Z and Beyonc" let's talk about Beyonce's female sister assaulting him. Jay-Z stood there and took the beating, legally he could have thrown a punch at the female.. but he chose not to because he is a role model. Jay-Z is a perfect example of the American Dream.. rising from poverty to a net worth of over 500 Million.

- No celebrity forces an individual to pay any attention to them and has no control over the viewers future actions. To penalize them further because people focus on their life is an ill-logical notion.

Think of the power that could be gained from what you're suggesting..
-If Martin Luther King was caught littering in the heat of protest he could have been jailed for 5+ years because all the little negro boys and girls will think it's okay to throw trash on the ground.

Media creates celebrities - What you're suggesting is corporate media could selectively create celebrities that are on trial. You have now given them the power to push their agenda and lock people up for a much longer time.

Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, OJ Simpson, Lindsey Lohan, and Charlie Sheen have not gained support from their illegal actions, they have lost it.
