Do you believe that Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas received a fair ruling by the Court?

I feel as if he got off easy because if there was intent to cause harm to his teammate he should have gotten a harsher sentence.

I feel like he received special treatment because he had multiple guns in the vicinity. Plaxico Burress of the New York Giants got two-years in jail when he shot himself accidentally. In the District, it€s illegal to have a firearm without a license. He shouldn't be treated differently than anyone else in the community.

Since it wasn't his first offense the charge was a little lenient. I could understand if he didn't have any prior charges but he should have known better by now.

I think the ruling was very unfair considering that rappers Lil Wayne and T.I. are in jail right now for similar offenses. He was fortunate that he could pay a good lawyer to handle his case. No one else would have received such a light sentence.

I think Gilbert Arenas should be charged as I would be charged as a Black in America. He did the crime and he should do the time. I know that celebrities get special treatment, but any normal person who got caught with two guns would have spent five years in jail in the District.
