Plaxico Burress just got two years for shooting himself with a gun last year in a New York night club. If he had kill himself, he would have probably gotten life.

Yes, Plaxico Burress is lucky he didn't kill someone.

He could have been even luckier if he wasn't dumber than a box of rocks. From what I understand, his lawyer had worked out several plea bargains early in the ordeal that would have netted him less than 6 months of jail time.

He, apparently, thought he shouldn't have to serve any jail time, and so because of his stupidity he's facing 2 years instead of what I read could have been 2 months.

Life is funny. Delonte West of the Cleveland Cavalier's was arrested in Maryland for being in possession of three firearms. I believe that the most he faces is a misdemeanor charge.
Yet if the had kill somebody, he would be facing the death penalty. Plaxico Burress would have gotten a similar sentence in Maryland for the gun charge, but a life sentence in New York for killing someone.

If he killed himself he would have gotten life??? :confused:

Also, how is it that you thought this was for the Laughter Is The Best Medicine sub forum? I guess I missed the joke.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

The fact that he kill himself and got life was the joke. Since when does a joke have to make sense.
