Chris Brown has been on the news numerous times because of his bad behavior but somehow he stays out of jail. At some point his fame needs to be put aside and he needs to be held accountable for his actions. The poor example his preferential treatment sets for the youth of America is a travesty.
Inter-relationship can be a complex matter, but the bruises on Rihanna after partner Chris Brown's assault go beyond the usual relationship tension. Brown should have received charges, paid his dues, and undergone anger management therapy. Celebrity 'status' must not be allowed as a get out of jail free card, particularly when Brown and Rihanna are seen as role models for many.
Chris Brown should have charges filed against him. Anytime that a man assaults a woman he should be charged. In fact, assaulting anyone is a crime, no matter how famous you are. There is never an excuse for a man to hit a woman unless it is in self defense, and how often does that happen?
Chris Brown needs the book thrown at him. How much trouble does this star have to get into before he is charged for his crimes. And the media just feeds on it. Instead of shunning criminals the media gets involved in promoting them because they think people want to see them.
Rihanna is a self-centered, superficial, and shallow human being. I can't imagine that Chris Brown is any better mind you, but I don't really think that there should be any dispute with hitting the likes of a decadent person like Rihanna. Dare I say, it might have been the only good thing he's ever done in his life. Chris Brown has plenty of things that he needs to be held accountable, but hitting Rihanna just isn't one of them.
