Should Chris Brown, aka "Breezy," face hate crime charges for his recent fight with Frank Ocean? It's common knowledge by now that the R&B singer has violent anger issues, and he's one that can't seem to change his image as a tantrum-throwing brat. What makes things worse is that Rihanna apparently isn't done being smacked around by the guy, or she has amnesia stemming from the last time he broke her face rendering her to the appearance of a domestic violence poster girl.
Jane Velez-Mitchell revealed on Feb. 01, 2013 that "Breezy" may escape responsibility for this recent snafu -- and that's downright disappointing. Nonetheless,Velez-Mitchell is a trusted figure in crime reporting and analysis and if she doesn't think Brown will face responsibility for these actions she might be right. Hell, he never got in trouble for aggressively taking a young lady's iPhone after she snapped a photo of him in public. So why would he be made to take his lumps like a man?
Chris Brown still has two years left of probation stemming from the brutal beating Rihanna suffered at his hands. And while she is perfectly comfortable going back to her abuser, the U.S. Criminal Justice System needs to make an example of this criminal -- and they should be in the form of hate crime charges. It's reported that before the fight broke out between he and Frank Ocean, Chris allegedly called the other entertainer an anti-gay slur. It's well known that Frank Ocean is an out homosexual. Anyway, Ocean is reported to have responded to Chris that he was also a homosexual -- making a reference to the many rumors about him. This sent Chris into one of his toddler-like rages and ended in Frank Ocean being assaulted.
Ever since he brutalized Rihanna's face he has been on a downward spiral of violence, aggression and bad behavior in general. Now he's going to be known as a homophobic attacker. Does he not deserve to even face charges on violation of his probation? Had this crime been committed by an average non-famous American on probation, he or she would already be sitting in jail awaiting sentencing for violating probation and committing another violent crime.
