This is almost the exact same thing Plaxico Burress is going to be serving two years in prison for. Black Man in New York: 2 years in prison. Small Town White Girl: I'd guess some community service and probation.

I don't normally throw race out in these cases, but there's a bigtime double standard on the horizon.

I sort of agree with you.
One main difference is:
in NYC, you need a license to OWN a gun, which Plaxico did not have.
In Wi, you can own a gun, but not carry it or fire it off.(except for under certian circumstances)
Her having the gun in her vehicle was only a violation because it was loaded.

So, while I agree that she will most likely get off way to easy, there were a few crucial differences in the 2 cases.

Oh I bet you normally throw race whenever possible. You are comparing two different states, and what sort of record does your hero Plaxico Burress have? There are circumstances that you clearly omit to spew your race baiting comment.

I tis two different states. Therefore, In NY: 2 years in prison. In WI: unknown at this time.

Yes you were trying to make a statement about race or was it about pro athletes. either way you failed.

Where is the outrage? Well I guess its perfectly normal for a whitey to do these things. Only interesting when its a colored person.
