Will Chris Brown get a plea deal? He's in court today!

Posted: 10:34 AM ET

We'll be monitoring the news on this story throughout the day – let us know your thoughts on a possible plea deal for Chris Brown!

From TMZ.com – Chris Brown's lawyer and the prosecutor in the Rihanna case have been engaged in "serious" plea bargain negotiations and according to one source, a "deal is close."

We know Brown will plead not guilty tomorrow, however the plea may just be a formality.

Sources say Rihanna has made it clear she does not want to testify in the case and wants Brown to cop a plea. We're told one of the reasons she's in Barbados right now is because "she wants to be as far away from this case as possible."

He shouldn't get any different treatment then the normal citizen charged with these crimes would get.


Dodie from Irvine, CA   April 6th, 2009 3:49 pm ET

Fame should not allow one to impede 'due process'. Rihanna and Chris will be back together, if not already done. Chris will beat her up again. Same story, different players. Personally, I do not see this newsworthy!

Ed Freeman
You're an 19 year old kid. You're critically wounded, and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley , 11-14-1965, LZ X-ray, Vietnam . Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8 – 1, and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.

You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know you're not getting out. Your family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.

Then, over the machine gun noise, you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter, and you look up to see an un-armed Huey, but it doesn't seem real, because no Medi-Vac markings are on it.

Ed Freeman is coming for you. He's not Medi-Vac, so it's not his job, but he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire, after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come.

He's coming anyway.

And he drops it in, and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board.

Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire, to the Doctors and Nurses.

And, he kept coming back.... 13 more times..... And took about 30 of you and your buddies out, who would never have gotten out.

Medal of Honor Recipient , Ed Freeman , died last Wednesday at the age of 80, in Boise , ID ......May God rest his soul.....

I bet you didn't hear about this hero's

passing, but we sure were told a whole

bunch about some Hip-Hop Coward

beating the crap out of his "girlfriend"

Medal of Honor Winner

Ed Freeman!

Shame on the American Media


Terry, TX   April 6th, 2009 6:00 pm ET

Greg.....that was a beautiful tribute to Ed Freeman....thanks for sharing.
Chris Brown....Coward....bum....jail.


Hi from NY   April 6th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

why do we care so much? they are 2 immature, irresponsable and uneducated people. More importance we give them, more we rinforce their EGOS ....thay are just too rich, too stupid, too full of alchool and drugs


frankie   April 6th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

I think they should both go to prison...chris for beating up a tiny defensive woman and Rhianna for being stupid enough to say do it again because i'm staying with you!!!


Floyd in Texas   April 6th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

Someone needs to tell Rhianna that when she looks in the mirror that she's looking at Nicole Brown Simpson..


SAM   April 6th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

I HAVE TO AGREE WITH THE GUEST DEFENSE ATTORNEY. IF THE PROSECUTION ONLY HAS A 911 TAPE THAT WAS FROM A FRIEND OF RHIANNA'S, IT'S NOT THE VOICE OF THE VICTIM. WHAT IF THAT FRIEND WAS SOMEONE WHO HATES CHRIS BROWN, AND WOULD LOVE TO SEE HIM GO TO JAIL? THE BRUISES ARE PICTURES OF A TRAGIC SITUATION. BUT I COULD HAVE DONE IT. IF RHIANNA DOES NOT COME FORWARD AND TESTIFY, SHE HAS NO CASE.


LV   April 6th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

The whole Chris Brown situations is sick. If you have money, you hire the best attorneys who allow you to slip out of your crime. It's a horrible example for the youth of this country and will only lead to more violence. Only way to stop this or curb this behavior is to mkake the criminal do time and educate them on ways to change.


Ms. Alice   April 6th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

Hello Larry King,

I think she's in danger. I think she might be killed by him sooner or later.


Tom   April 6th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

I hope she gets beat again. That's the only way to counter the bad message she sent young girls everywhere by going back to that punk.


Anita   April 6th, 2009 9:14 pm ET

Im on both sides, Although Chris did beat Rhianna, her response was not a smart one when she took him back. She is telling the public, mostly young girls that it is in fact okay to go back to a violent abuser.
Both have faults.


DL   April 6th, 2009 9:14 pm ET

It's a shame that someone that young girls may consider a role model should allow her boyfriend to go unpunished for a crime in which could have lead to her ultimate demise. Rhinana, by not showing up in court, is a coward. Chris Brown should be punished, with no plea, just like every other person in our society. Being a celebrity should not give him a way out of this horrible crime.


Ms. Alice   April 6th, 2009 9:14 pm ET

Hello Larry King,

I think she might be killed sooner or later. I think she's in danger.

Can a couple live a happy life together after experiencing domestic abuse?


Slim   April 6th, 2009 9:14 pm ET

Chris shoud be trouble for pimp slapping his girl. He shoud no better. Hope he go to jail.


Wilma Wilson   April 6th, 2009 9:14 pm ET

Hi Larry

I am the founder and Executive Director of one of the largest battered women and children shelter in Southern California. Looking at your program today ha convinced me that many people are not educated about domestic vioence. I see victims and their children everyday. This problem needs lots of education. We have to prevent this problem. Chris is a role model for young people. It is not ok for him to send a message that this is ok

Wilma Wilson, R.N., MFT, JD
Executive Director of Peace & Joy Care Center Domestic Violence Program


Cory   April 6th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

He should get the punishment to fullest extent of the law. I think that he feels he's above the law, and he'll just do it again, Like O.J.


Tina Panos   April 6th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

These men must be prosecuted or the cycle will not end. Where are Rihanna's parents and friends calling this Chris Brown out? She is young and needs guidance of those with more wisdom and experience.


darlene   April 6th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

while the topic of domestic violence is a serious subject, it puzzles me that attention seems only to be given when a black man commits the offense eg; james brown, o.j simpson, and now chris brown...yet when Farrah Faucett was abused by her husband there was never as extensive coverage as has been when the offender is of color. Its as if the media waits for the poster face to be again/and always a negative depiction of the black man.


Sam   April 6th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

Larry,
It's sad we can't help Rihanna, sometimes we learn the hard way. Spring Chris, and lets hope next time he don't kill her.

Some learn some don't, so sad.......

Sam


Marlene   April 6th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

I am so disgusted by the whole thing. I loved Chris Brown & Rhianna
but when I heard about what he did to her and saw the pictures of what he did to her; I was disgusted with him and when she went BACK to him; I WAS AND STILL AM DISGUSTED WITH THEM BOTH! HOW CAN SHE GO BACK TO HIM AFTER WHAT HE DID TO HER? DOES SHE REALLY THINK HE WON'T DO IT AGAIN? HE TOLD HER HE WAS GOING TO KILL HER; JUST LIKE OJ TOLD NICOLE HE WAS GOING TO KILL HER & GUESS WHAT? HE DID! CHRIS BROWN IS THE 21ST CENTURY VERSION OF AN OJ SIMPSON!! RHIANNA SHOULD RUN AS FAR AWAY FROM HIM AS SHE CAN GET AND 50 YEARS FROM NOW WHEN SHE IS ALIVE AND GREY SHE WILL BE GLAD SHE DID! RHIANNA HAS A CHANCE NICOLE NEVER HAD- SHE HAS A CHANCE TO ACTUALLY LIVE TO BE AN OLD WOMAN! CHRIS BROWN SHOULD GO TO JAIL!


Paula   April 6th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

I think you teach people how to treat you. Rhianna made a huge mistake by taking Chris Brown back. Not only is she setting an example for abuse victims everywhere, but it positively re-inforces Chris Browns actions. She will live to regret this in so many ways.


Frank   April 6th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

9 years ago I was arrested for domestic battery. It was my first and only ofense. During the litigation process it was clear that the prosecutor did not want to go to court. A deal was made so she could get her conviction and loosen her work load.
The deal was simple. Take a domestic violence class and keep my nose clean for 3 years and the conviction would be wiped clean from my record.
It is safe to say that Chris Brown will make a similar deal.


Renee, CT   April 6th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

Rihanna needs to stand up for herself ... there is no excuse for someone to raise a finger to you. Chris is a celebrity so he should get away with this??? He should pay the price like anyone else should if they do the same. It is so sad. Boycott Chris and Rihanna!!!!!


Carmen   April 6th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

Larry,
I understand the severity of what chris Brown has done
But no one sees that Rhianna has to take responsibily for
This as well.


Helen Edebiri   April 6th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

Hello Larry,


Phil R   April 6th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

PEOPLE JUDGE TOO MUCH. THIS YOUNG MAN DOES NOT HAVE A RECORD OF BEATING WOMEN AND SHOULD NOT BE BRANDED AS AN ABUSER. LET THEM GET COUNSELLING, RECOVER THEIR RELATIONSHIP AND MOVE ON.


g   April 6th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

RHIANA AND CHRIS HAVE NO TALENT AND ARE USING THIS FOR ATTENTION . PEOPLE WILL FORGET ABOUT THEM SOON.WHO ARE THEY ANY WAY.NEVER HEARD OF THEM.LARRY MOVE ON FROM IT


Kayla   April 6th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

I PERSONALLY FEEL THAT YES HE IS WRONG BUT HE NEEDS TO BE HELPED INSTEAD OF JAIL TIME..

I ALSO FEEL LIKE IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO..I FEEL LIKE THE MEDIA SHOULD ALSO LOOK AT RIHANNAS PART..

HE IS NOT PROVEN GUILTY SO STOP MAKING HIM GUILTY..

I WILL STILL SUPPORT HIM AND RIHANNA IN THEIR MUSIC EVEN AFTER THIS IS DONE.

THEY HAVE MY PRAYER AND INSTEAD OF CONTANTLY TALKING BAD ABOUT THEM..YA'LL SHOULD PRAY FOR THEM TOO..


bilal morris   April 6th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

there is no need for chris brown to explain his self he just wouldn't get up and beat rihanna for nothinq in my opinion he was provoked in bruitaly beating her like that if she knew she was the main woman why would she become insecure about if her man is cheating. I'm not saying it was right but it was only fair to me I think she is crazy because she took him evidentally she must love so if she like it I lovee


kpdiego408   April 6th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

I believe that it is extremely important in Chris Brown's Case that the court system treat him just like any other citizen. He is a role model and people are watching. The courts need to show others the consequences of their crimes, especially when famous people commit them. This probably is not going to happen since Chris has money and will influence the court system. As for his innocence will be left to the jury to decide. Rihanna has her reasons for going back to him, but I believe she also needs to truly think about how her actions and how they may appear to young girls. Rihanna would benefit greatly if she went public and spoke to the young girls directly, as well as Chris going public. I do not think they will do that. We all want her and Chris to be those role models that would disencourage their behavior, but they first must have reflected on their own choices first and learned from them before they can teach others – i do not believe they have learned anything given how they are handling the situation.


Joan   April 6th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

I don't know why this guy is getting so much publicity, his going to get away with it he have money.


Mr. T   April 6th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

sometimes women fake scars and abuse turning over tables, scatching themselves, etc. So, I think that first time offenders should be shown some leaniency. Taking a plea sometimes for a man to end it all can ruin the rest of your life. Jobs barred etc...


Rodney   April 6th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

Hey Larry,

No one knows what really happened that night between Chris Brown and Rihanna. Everyone is saying he's wrong and guilty because of the end result to Rihanna. No one ever asked if Rihanna started the fight by hitting Chris Brown first! And if that was the case then he was just defending himself especially if she was hitting him while he was driving?
Their relationship has been abusive and from what's been put out in the media she's herself!


Kayla   April 6th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

CHRIS BROWN IS NOT A RAPPER SIR ON TV..HE IS A R&B ARTIST..HE SINGS NOT RAP...OMG!..GET YOU INFO STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU SAY SOMETHING ON TV..


Rick & Caroline   April 6th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

He needs to do time. Prevention is education. We are teaching women that it' is ok to be beaten and we are teaching our men that it is okay to beat women NO, it's not okay, this is how women end up dead and it is our responsibility as a society to stop it.... Strait to Jail...

Regards Larry, we love your show!


Renee, CT   April 6th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

When are we ever going to learn and start to change things. What kind of comment is that from the defense atty that because Chris is a "rapper" that this would probably help his career. How sick!!!! Can we ever change people??????????


Kwame, St Louis MO   April 6th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

Larry, a lot of people want to Chris Brown go to jail which in my view would not reverse the the abuse that went. In my view he should be sentence into community service and intensive counselling.


allen   April 6th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

theres no way this young man should get out of this .
it saddens me that our judicial system allows it to happen.


Real_Talk   April 6th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

I am not saying Chris is right, but Rihanna isn't either.

Chris run run as fast as you can because if she hit you once, she will hit you again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rihanna run run as fast as you can because if he hit you once, he will hit you again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Women are abusers too!!!

Lets pray for them both and hope the BOTH get the help they need.


Helen Edebiri   April 6th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

Hello Larry,
I love your show, Personallu, I think Rhianna Show leave ChristBrown. Rhianna is a smart young woman, she needs to leave him. The about will only get worse. It is awful what Christ this to Rhianna. I hope Rhianna is smart enough to leave him. Chris will continue to about Rhianna if she stays with him. Once an abuser, always an abuser.


JP   April 6th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

He should not get any other treatment but he is entitled to the same protections that all U.S. citizens are guaranteed. Rhianna's statement/ testimony is not admissible unless she appears in court. Look at the confrontation clause of US const. and United States Supreme Court Case Crawford .v Washington. If Rhianna does not show up to testify this case will be dismissed.


Caroline /Montreal   April 6th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

Rhianna has a responsibility towards her fans as well as women throughout the world in regards to violence against women,she needs to make the right choice regarding this issue to set a precedence. I hope she finds the courage to do so if not for herself at least for all the girls and women that look up to her as a role model.


Rosr Marie   April 6th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

Larry King,

Just a quick comment on Chris Brown and Rhianna. In this season of Easter the greatest season of the churches year, I want to say that it is a season of forgivness. Rhianna I want to applaud you for showing Chris forgivness and going back to him. There is nothing wrong with forgivness.


Sharon   April 6th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

Chris Brown should be prosecuted like anyone else would be for assault. I am disappointed in Rhianna as a person/woman for not taking a stand; the abuse will not end. Sadly, I do not think Rhianna is a good spokesperson for Cover Girl.


Keith   April 6th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Larry first I must say that men shouldn't hit women, however, we humans are animals, intelligent animals of creation and the creator gave the man physical power over the woman but the woman continues to challenge that physical power and a lot of us men refuse to just walk away and we should. some times you cant. I was purposely inticed to hit this one girfriend but was smarter than she and she went to jail. that hardly ever happen. Some of these women should learn how to behave with a man... Why are Americans ie Judges always so quick to sue and punish? And didn't she start this phsycal altercation. I think that woman Judge is very unfair and probably a victim of domestic violence but she must understand that all cases aren't the same. some women earn a beat down. And it doesn't "alway" happen again and again. I'm a witness of that... some reform and some women talior their behavior towards men... they must remember that God made it physically possible for man to win... So ladies please, please stop challenging the physical prowess of man... When the woman gets so angry that she's in a mans face yelling and screaming and in some cases hitting, then she should take a walk or something until she can control her anger.


K   April 6th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

recent i was in a similar situation where i had to call the police and on my boyfriend of 7 years. my advice is that Chris and Rhianna has to do what is best for them. Rhianna must know if Chris is a man of his word and she has to know if he does it again can she walk away. but oprah does have point that it will happen again. as in my case i got fed up i thought that my boyfriend was making it a habit. however i never fear for my life and i stood up for myself. what i looked at was i own a house with this person and i invest 7 years of my life into this relationship and i had to take that into consideration when deciding to stay or leaving and we have no children.
k


Pepper Tee   April 6th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Sadly, domestic violence is still not taken seriously by our society. In this instance, the state can and should go forward to send a message that it should not and will not be pushed under the rug.


Al   April 6th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

No one should get away with delivering such brutality. A lesson should be taught out of this situation, chris brown is not going to change unless he goes to battery therapy out of his own accord.


Melvin P.   April 6th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

If Chris Brown is found not guilty for physically abusing a women then the younger generation, specially younger males, might think committing crimes like terroristic threatening, harassment and stalking can be easily gotten away with. Personally I think if Chris Brown had abused another women (not a celeb), no one would care....and that is sad.


Cervantes   April 6th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

Re-invented ?Yes how about from rapper to boxer? to have a taste of getting hamererd to a pulp. And about Rihanna ,So Sorry she will be in need of therapy for the rest of her life.!


Carole Castle   April 6th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

I hope that the prosecutor AND thejudge go for the maximum penalty on Chris Brown instead of settling for a plea agreement. Chris Brown committed an outrageous crime and has such an influence on young men (and old alike) who thinks it's okay to batter women. When my granddaughter came home from her high school upset because one of her friends' boyfriend told her that he would go "Chris Brown" on her, we both were livid and agreed that something has to be done to curb his negative influence. It's already becoming a part of the language. So to let him off with a slap on the wrist is unthinkable. It's been too long that women and some men have been battered behind closed doors and more recently, publicly, that there should be a mandate to negate plea bargaining for such ruthless acts of violence.


Doreen Giuliano   April 6th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

The prosecutors will just make a deal with the criminal, they always do.

" I HATE JEWS" is what a juror name Jason Allo said he also believed the defendant to be " He is a tall skinny Jewish kid with glasses" and more anti-semitic slurs

No indictment was brought upon this juror.


Angela Antoye   April 6th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

So sad, for both. But, he is guilty so I don't see why he shouldn't be appropriately punished, like any other joe. He beat her because he knew he could, he was the stronger party. I hope for his sake that he successfully reinvents himself, but punished – oh yes! As for Rihanna, regrettably, her career too will almost certainly take a hit of sorts, but more importantly, she too will need counseling especially as she seems to think that she has a future with this creep.


sandy   April 6th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

Though Chris Brown is African-American and a successful entertainer, your guests should be advised that he is not a rapper. In these times, it is very important to provide accurate information to vierwers. Particlulary when statements like "going to jail could be good for his [Chris Brown] career", are made about someone.

He is in fact an R&B singer and actor. Things are bad enough for all involved..... so let's not add anything to the fire!


Kayla   April 6th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Everyone that is takin up for Rihanna..think about it people..she is takin up for herself..have you ever heard of you can't help anyone unless they want to be help..she must know that there is something else in the background that we all don't know about..so it maybe more to the situation then we all know..


Kevin   April 6th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I just want to go on the record and say that what Chris Brown did was inexcusable, and he should face his punishment like a man. A cowardly man that claims to love and respect women but then beats such a young, beautiful, and talented one so viciously. But there is one fact I would like to make clear, Chris Brown, despite what these uninformed pundits may assume, is NOT a RAPPER but a SINGER. One that made his living making kid friendly records, that I'm sure your kids bought, sang, and requested. It isn't until something as unfortunate as this happens that he becomes the villainous, drug abusing RAPPER. SMH.


Mom_of_4_Boys   April 6th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

It is amazing for me to watch. I am a mom with 4 boys, they are age 13 to 25 and we have spoke about this case several times. In the beginning, they felt that Chris Brown should be convicted, he had hit a women - somthing that was unspeakable and terribly wrong, but now they feel that they are just being dragged over the coal because they are celebrities.

As a note, Chris Brown and Rihanna are not my boys/young men role models - me and my husband are their role models. These young kids (both Rihanna and Chris) should be in counseling, but if we keep trying to dedicate their action, then they will both walk away from this and not receive the type of counseling they both (BOTH) need.


K   April 6th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Rhianna may have a responsibility to her fan and women but her first obligation is to herself and no one else. some people can change if they really want to, if they are a person of intergity. since this is a dosemitic abuse i do not beleive that chris borwn should get off easily yet at the same time jail time does not nesscarily mean prevention in the future. i don't believe that Rhianna is she setting a bad an example for abuse victims everywhere, i believe that she is doing what is right for her and her situation, we can skeptical but only Chris and Rhianna know what led up to the fight, no one knows who hit who first. but i have to same Black man, do not have the common sense to walk away, they always want to feel like the "man" Chris brown behaviors just goes to prove that . This behaviour now opens the door as did robin and mike tyson that domestic abuse is becoming a black thing and black man have no self-control.

iamforu   April 6th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

This is a very unacceptable incident!!!

But it's a sign of the toxic nature of fellow humans to want to condemn the goal of repentance, mercy and restoration that these two seem to have had in mind and spirit.

According to the law-as I've been told, all parties should be given the benefit of the doubt and have their day in court.

No man should beat, or intimidate any woman!!!!!!!!!!! And in some cases, women should not intimidate, or confront a man like she wants to fight!!!!

According to today's modern behavior, do SOME women act that way?

I repeat, no man should beat, or intimidate any woman!!!!!!

But, I honestly believe--that until we get to the point where we say-–No man, or woman should disturb, harm or violate ANY other man woman. Society will just unfortunately and regrettably will be chasing it's tail like a dog. It seems as though some gross, hypnotic lack of self-control that seems to have transpired in this set up.

It seems that every day, in every city, young people are being-and have been grossly violated and harmed withouth the same deserved frenzy and outcry. WHY? and it's been tolerated????

No man (or woman) should violate, disturb or harm ANY MAN!!!

Live and let live. Love and let love.


ebony   April 6th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

I am fans of them both, especially Rhianna. I was shcoked and saddened to hear what happened. I do believe he should be punished but I also believe they both need counseling and anger management because as someoen stated before it has been said she started hitting him first. I understand a man should never hit a woman but that doesnt give a woman the right to hit a man because a s a human being, a person can only take so much especially in the middle of a heated debate.

She is beautiful & intelligent and they are both extremely talented. It would be such a shame to see it all go to watse on both the parts. Being his first offense and what he's seen growing up i think some leniency should be shown but definately not a walk! NO one should walk for a beating like that regardless of what their status or position is.


Tyler   April 6th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

I think that this entire situation is very sad. While i'm very disappointed in Chris Brown I believe that there are two sides to every story and I don't feel that Rihanna is as innocent as she seems. I've heard that Rihanna is mentally abusive to Chris by being controlling, obsessive, and over-bearing in their relationship and I feel that her actions are partly responsible for Chris's violent outbreak. I do not condone Chris's actions and I feel that he should recieve his DESERVED punishment, but I don't think we should fight domestic violence and other crimes by giving stars and celebrities harsher punishment than truly deserved. Crime and abuse prevention should be taught by families with family morals and values.


K Jones   April 6th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

Let me start off by saying know one knows what happened in the car that night accept Chris and Rihanna. the public only knows what the media is telling us to make a good story. Secondly l have read the police report that they put out and all i can say is that it sounds really bad but, the report make it sound like they were driving down the street he gets a texted message, she reads it and then out of know where he starts pounding on her..............And i know that it did not happen like that..... it doesn't make since to me and if people will think....I mean i am not agreeing to what he did was right but......... I just want people to know that there are two sides to every story but i think people are not hearing his side. And another thing about the statements that he said about "wait til we get home" blah blah blah, how many times have u been in an argument and and u said so really bad things, or what about when u have kids and you til the "wait til we get home i'm going to give you something to cry about, lets think here people, when u are heated in a n argument u say pretty much anything to get under the other persons skin or to press there button. And what about those girls who get into guys faces i mean all up in there face and dare them to hit them or there are women out there who hit men knowing that the men will not hit the so is that fair should the get the same treatment as a male who beats a women?


Rhonda Griffin   April 6th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

Both Rhianna and Chris need professional help. It's just that simple.
Domestic violence is a form of terrorism. With no professional intervention, domestic terror continues to destroy lives.


ebony   April 6th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

AND IN RESPONSE TO K...

omg how racist can u be? domestic abuse is far from a "black thing" or someone wanting to be a man. it is an anger problem it effects all races everywhere. I am a social worker so i see it all the time and its FAR from a black thing especially seeing as most of my client are of caucasian orientation. Its all the media shows you or all that you want to see. The world isnt lilly white. Open your eyes and your mind before spewing such ignorance please.


K Jones   April 6th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

And another thing is that people are acting like these two people are so much in age, Chris is i think 19 and Rihanna just turned 21, these are young people not that they don't both do grown up things but i think we need to stop and think about that. I have a question why is it that BeBe Winans seems to pass on by about his situation, there hasn't been any media coverage about that has there!!!!


Angela Antoye   April 6th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

Why is it so difficult for people to understand and accept that there are consequences for actions like Chris Brown's? Innocent my foot. He himself has indicated as much that he is guilty and Rihanna did make a statement to that effect. Leave the lawyers to work out the legalese related to the most appropriate punishment. But they are both parading as public figures so the public has a right to an opinion on this matter.

I understand the actions of rilhanna for not wanting to speak, but my main focus is why does chris brown & rilhanna deserve all of the media attention bascially rilhnaa is just saying is allright for (regular women) to get abuse and keep quiet, she did not stand up for herself in this case and it makes people like brown just keep getting away with abuseing women. secondly the way the media looks at at the situation between brown & fentley but what about normal women who go through this everyday? PSA arent helping fentley should have have just told the media her self what happen is she so ashame for what happen to her that she unwilling to help out other women make a change? She just shown me that if you been hit shake it off and go clubbing I'm sorry but every women cant afford a 15 million dollar glass of wine or wear the last clothes to heal themselves her actions could have been better in a time like this, she wants to make music like rehab and everything else for a man who will only hit her again she couldnt even take the simple advice from oprah out all the pepole she in her own little world and it just shows bad judgement. I believe is more this to this case then brown & fentley are telling us . Is it not only an assumption but possable chris could have been under the influence or had some type of drug-related object in his system? I'm just stateing clear facts that the media isn't asking fentley, after looking back at the photos of brown & fentley i see that had to be brown first time-ever striking fentley they had love in their eyes and they seemed a happy couple men like brown dont hit women like fentley who are goofy and just want a women. no matter how hard brown wants to be a t-pain or ludcris he'll never be one. He more of a usher/Neyo type and doesnt have a thug bone in little scrawny body. i also think we sterotype ourselves of who the people are if this situation would have occured between some of the dark-skined holloywood ladies from fanastia to gabriel union would this even have made this many headlines? Basically the only thing i have learned from fentley that is i was woman and i got hit in the face is to fly off to the beach with him the next day. and last but not least why did puff dadddy or diddy whoever even decide to insert himself in a situation like this it was something he could have prevented he could have told fentley to make a change and stand up but what doers he do ? give brown and fentley a beach house a mere toy is not going to solve this problem.

Chris Brown is not a Hip-Hop artist. He is a pop artist such as Justin Timberlake so this is not going to be good for his image. Just because he's black doesn't mean he's a rapper. To be classified as a hip-hop artist you have to rap in some capacity such as Jay-Z, Eminem and Lil Wayne. His image will be hurt because his appeal ranges to so many kids and teenagers alike. He's been on the Disney channel, Nickelodeon and MTV which has a huge age range. He's seen as a wholesome kid but now he'll be seen as a bad guy that didn't just beat up his girlfriend but a worldwide pop star alike. So things are going to be bad but remember, HE'S NOT A HIP-HOP ARTIST.


Jetchie Smith   April 7th, 2009 12:13 am ET

Chris Brown should absolutely be prosecuted and the DA's office should use him as an example. This society should have a zero tolerance policy of domestic violence. Its harm permeates not only the family, but society in general. I am a prosecutor and have handled hundreds of similar cases, even prosecuting police officers. These men (and sometimes women) MUST be held accountable, each and every one of them. Do not blame the victims for staying in abusive relationships, especially when there are children involved. It is easy to judge another person, but if you have never been in a violent relationship, you cannot relate to what these women (and sometimes men) usually experience. The bottom line is this: Hold each and every batterer accountable; punish them and people PLEASE GET INVOLVED- do not sit idly by as violence is occurring in your neighbors' homes. This is NOT a "private family issue!"


David   April 7th, 2009 12:14 am ET

I'm not on either side. But Cris Brown saying he wouldn't do that after his own mother is of 'domestic violence.' This is betrayel. I think Cris Brown is full of betrayel. And yes... I do agree with Oprah. He'd do it again.


MARY   April 7th, 2009 12:14 am ET

I'M SORRY BUT WHEN I WAS HIT BY MY BOYFRIEND AND DIDN;T WANT TO PRESS CHARGES IT DIDN'T MATTER CAUSE THEY HAD THE PROOF.AND I'M GLAD THEY DID.I DON'T THINK HE WILL GET OFF THAT EASY WITH ALL THE PROOF.


David Barney   April 7th, 2009 12:15 am ET

What a coward, in every sense of the word. The cycle of control and abuse has to be broken. Jail time, counseling and prevent crisis management has to be a part of his punishment. And believe me, if you think this was the first incident you are dead wrong; it's only the first time it was made public. Why don't these cowards hit men?


JohnaLee   April 7th, 2009 12:15 am ET

As a young woman I am extremely dissapointed in the way Rihanna has behaved in this matter. If she was beat by her boyfriend it is her responsibility as a role model for young women to fight Chris Brown.


lbj   April 7th, 2009 12:16 am ET

EVERYONE NEEDS TO MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS
THE JUDGE IS GOING TO HAND DOWN PROGRAMS FOR BOTH OF THEM.

I THINK WHITE PEOPLE NEED TO MIND THER OWN BUSNINESS AND FIND ALL THE $$$bILLION YOU STOLE FROM BLACKS AND MAYBE THEY WONT HAVE SUCH PROBLEMS TO DEAL WITH IN THE FIRST PLACE.

YOU PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS TRYING TO TELL OTHER WHAT TO DO OR NOT DO..MIND YOUR BZ's


Jetchie Smith   April 7th, 2009 12:17 am ET

To those who are saying that the DA's office cannot go forward without Rihanna's testimony, you are wrong. The rules of evidence in California do allow prosecutors to proceed in cases where victims are uncooperative or even absent. The statement that Rihanna made to the person who called 911, if Rihanna was still under the stress of the alleged beating, is what is known as a spontaneous statement, and is admissible in California for the truth of the matter asserted. It is not considered hearsay. It is more difficult, but wholly worth it. Myself, I have gone forward on attempted murder cases where there is no victim who ever got on the stand to testify...and convicted the dirtbags! It can and SHOULD be done!


Dick, CA   April 7th, 2009 12:18 am ET

We need to teach all men that there is no reason to hit a woman.


Ryan   April 7th, 2009 12:20 am ET

This guy is guilty as sin. The fact that he pled not guilty is testament to his lack of maturity, morals and overall character. Just another punk that thinks he's above the law. I sure hope that Brown does some time, but then again, I suppose that with the stigma that hip-hop music carries, he might actually gain audience by going to jail. Rhiana shouldn't have gone back to him, but I think that now, after having seen the outcome of this, she should take a hard look in the mirror and re-asses who she thinks she is.


Ramon Gonzalez   April 7th, 2009 12:21 am ET

I do not feel sorry for women like her if she end up deid. He need to go to jail. What are we show are childern. I will never buy any of their music.


Robert F   April 7th, 2009 12:21 am ET

I think that Chris Brown is a cowardly kid, and is hiding behind every excuse he can find in hopes this will all go away But. like Judge Jeanine Pirro said...."He didn't assault a police officer, or another man, he assaulted a woman." What kind of "real man" does such a thing? As for Rhianna, she's a beautiful woman who will never have a hard time finding a man to be with, and will be far more successful than Chris Brown. So if she allows him to ride her coattails, and continues to have a relationship with this coward, she has noone to blame but herself when it happens again, which we all know it will. Rhianna, WAKE UP!!!


Jetchie Smith   April 7th, 2009 12:22 am ET

MARY- you are the kind of victim that makes DDAs such as myself happy to do our job. You may not appreciate what we're doing when it's happening to you, but if you realize that it may have saved your life, all of the distaste you have for us at the time the case is pending is all worth it. Congratulations for moving on!


joanne duran   April 7th, 2009 12:22 am ET

Rhianna should come back to this country and face the truth in court and in public. I will not buy any products that she endorses until she does this. She is hurting all of her young fans as well as herself by running from the truth about what Chris Brown did to her. She can only run so long, and he Chris Brown will never forget and will make her pay forhis bad behavior in oh so many ways.


bailey   April 7th, 2009 12:27 am ET

I don't think we'll really know the details of the fight they had. The emotion behind the history of domestic violence is dominating this case but thats not to say that Chris Brown is not guilty of his actions. It seems they've been violent toward each other. Their relationship is toxic, considering the amount of rumors of infidelity and jealousy. I also don't believe Rihanna is naive enough to go back to someone if he allegedly beat her. Theres got to be more to the story. Women are smarter, its 2009 not '79.


bill   April 7th, 2009 12:27 am ET

why are your guests always refering to a man hitting a women. There are plenty of women who hit and beat on men. And if the man complains, he's mocked, laughed at or thought of as a joke or a whimp. Abuse is a two way street in this country Either way it's not right


Margaret E.   April 7th, 2009 12:30 am ET

It is 6 in 1 hand and 6 in another If she doesn't want to testify against him there maybe more to the incident that meets the eye. It is unfortunate that he has ruined his life by responding to her by disfiguring her face altho he had the right to defend himself he took it for by letting his anger get the best of him causing him to do that much damage. You really should know what you are doing when you strike someone else you are taking all kind of chances. I really think they should leave each other alone. Life is to short to be testing love in a fighting manner. He should find him/her someone that their yoke is equally matched that may make him/her happy without fighting.


Diana   April 7th, 2009 12:36 am ET

Chris Brown is not a rapper. He is an R&B artist. and it is a shame that the moment this young man decides to make some bad choices the media labels him a rapper and sensationalize this story. I believe this situation is very unfortunate for both of these young people and the media's depiction of Rhiana and Chris Brown does not help this situation.


kp from AZ   April 7th, 2009 1:11 am ET

I'am so mad about this thing between Chris and Rhianna. Everyone is own on Chris Brown, but I know for a fact that he is not a woman beater. Most men who beat their partner usally alienate them from family and friends. They have to have total control . I was beaten by daughter's father. He didn't want me to have friends or family members around me. He would take my car and phone away from me so that i had no one to talk to or be with. He didn't respect his mother because she stayed in a relationship that was bad. So he thought that was the way a women should be treated. I had a son when we got together. He saw this man beat me for nothing. I finally got away from him only by the grace of god. I'am truely lucky because my best friend's sister was murdered by her husband. My son did not become a women beater because of what he saw. Instead he is just the opposite. 2 years ago he got married . His wife had two children from a previous relationship. He tryed to be a father to her children but she wouldn't let him.She would pick a fight with him each time he tryed to discipline them. She would hit him with things . Then she would call the police and tell them that he hit her. So my son was taken to jail. He now has to do 152 weeks of D.V. classes. She knew that all she had to do was say that he hit her for the police to believe her. May be Rhianna knew that too. Maybe she attacked him because of the e-mail he received. We don't know what took place because we where not there. I've read many accounts about how she was very controling. Why would he beat her over a e-mail he received from someone else. I believe she saw that e-mail and got pissed , began to hit him . Who ever this person was , they had e-mailed him before. They had a fight about her before. He tryed to reasure about his feelings. But seeing the womens name on this e-mail made her attack him. So he tryed to get her not hit him , but she would'nt listen. Now she wants to cut him some slick by allowing the D.A. to give him a plea deal.


Mike Chernick   April 7th, 2009 1:46 am ET

Ameican culture in its infancy does not clearly offer youth lessons on how to get along. Chris and Rihanna are evidence; yet, by some chance if the right person(s) introduces them to meditation, diet change and the strength and weakness of men and women, the love thay hve for each other will win over the infantile, instinctive energy which Rick Warren calls their World View.
The Naysayers, including Oprah, are not well versed in alternatives to the abandonment they suggest; but by saying the politically correct thing which they think is a safe bet, they are not taking responsibility. Do they want Chris and Rihanna to magically heal without each other, or provoke and beat up other people. Lets get real and deal with it; twelve step is not the only way, but it is a good supplement to Anger management Classes if they cannot learn the yogas of ancient teachings.


Kaitlyn   April 7th, 2009 2:50 am ET

I was very upset that the man on the panel referred to Chris Brown as a rapper. If he knew anything about Chris Brown, he would have know he is not a rapper. By the way, how could he speak for a race about being in prison is glorified, when he can't tell the difference between a rapper and singer?


Kaitlyn   April 7th, 2009 2:56 am ET

In no way am I excusing what Chris Brown did. My only question is what if she attacked him first, does he have the right to defend himself? What if she would have jumped on him and he had bruises because he didn't want to hit her because she is a woman? Would we be having this discussion?

In my opinion, the media is making it worst. This just goes to show that they are ordinary people and most women in that situation would have also went back, why are so many people attacking her? We show our youth on a daily basis "wrong", but why aren't we correcting all these things in society that is setting them up for failure?


joey   April 7th, 2009 3:01 am ET

chris brown must and should absolutely spend some time in jail he and other like him should be punished. the problem is our legal system makes it too easy for these guys to get way with this kind of brutal attack. he gets a slap on the wrist and sent home as he laughs in the face of the victim. when is this country ever going to get tough on people who commit such violent crimes. as we all know counciling and early release dose not work all the time in fact the abuser becomes more violent and possibly murder.


Eliseo C.   April 7th, 2009 3:16 am ET

he should be treated like any other citizen period. The money factor is keeping him outta jail, which is a bad example for change in society. WE HAVE A BLACK PRESIDENT DANG IT!!! this is a well known quote "you do the crime you do the time".


Bobby Jones   April 7th, 2009 3:18 am ET

Chris Brown is a typical woman beater... he knows he did it and so does she... but unfortunately this justice system is so messed up it would be luck for him to serve a day in jail.. the courts need to be reasonable and look at the evidence and send him to jail.. all the justice system is today is a big joke.. the courts need to take this case and make an example to woman beaters all over.. there is no excuse for a man to place his hands on a woman.. this is teaching the american children that it is ok for a man to beat a woman.. celebrities always get off of everything easy.. O.J. killed his wife and got away with it and thats just what is going to happen here... chris brown is going to get off these charges wit barely a slap on the wrists.. celebrities need to realize that they arent above the law and they need to realize that they can be treated like the normal american public... unfortunately they have too much money and can hire the best attorneys.. they need to send him to prison and see if he tries to pick a fight with a real man.. if he even stays alive that long.. i'm sure many men are wanting to show him what it's like to be beat and to be helpless..


rene   April 7th, 2009 3:19 am ET

I am a male and i was always thought never to hit a woman so far im 38 and never done so, have learn in a heat of discussion is better to get out and cool off. Bad thing about cris brown and rihana is that because they are celebrity im 100% Cris Brown is gonna come out ok but if it was a regular citizen we would be sent to jail. I dont think its fair that he will not be tought a lessson because he is celebrity. The court should show that every person is the same when it comes to paying for what we have done wrong. For Rihana i feel sorry for her if she things he is gonna change, open your eyes little lady he will not if he done it once he will do it again im sorry thats the way i see. But once again i think the court is not gonna do nothing because he is a celebrity but again if it was a regular citizen we would be in jail in a heart bit. I guess justice is blind sometimes


ann   April 7th, 2009 3:21 am ET

think he should be punish... also i think she needs to go to counseling too..... what example that both of them are sending to young people........ both parties need help..... him for beating a woman and for her who thinks its ok...


Mary Boyer   April 7th, 2009 3:21 am ET

I realize most people don't understand Rhianna going back to Chris Brown but nobody understands it until they've been there. I've been in her shoes before. I put up with beatings for 6 years and finally got smart enough to get away after I thought he was going to kill me.

Please don't criticize Rhianna too much. She is madly in love and it is hard to break away. If Chris Brown ends up going to Prison over this he will probably blame Rhianna and maybe his family will blame her also. This is what happened to me.

I don't have any quick solutions. I just get tired of hearing people criticizing the women in these cases. They are always considered stupid because they won't leave. The people that call these women stupid should not criticize when they don't know what it is like. They these men sometimes threaten to harm family members. There might be a very good reason why she won't leave.

Like what happened to me it may take her a few times to wizen up.
PI


Eliseo C.   April 7th, 2009 3:25 am ET

He was raised in the hood. All this violent is learned crap is bull, he knows better. He thought about all the consequences before he did it; living in the hood well prepares you to think of all before you act. He thought about he's money and her weaknesses and knew that he would get away


Tanya   April 7th, 2009 3:26 am ET

I think they were both at fault for putting their hands on each other. If you think about it Rhianna had marks on the the right side of her face and she was sitting on the passenger side of the car. So, that tells me if Chris was driving and puching her she would have to have been facing him. Which makes me think she was punching him too. He would only have one hand to hit her and if she wasn't hitting him back she would only have marks on the left side of her body. Everyone keeps saying he beat her but I've also been in a conflict with a man before when I slapped him or hit him, I was just lucky enough to be with a man that didn't hit me back. Now that I'm older I know I was wrong and when I think back on it he could have hit me back and hurt me. I was wrong but people some kind of way think it's okay for women to hit men as much as you like and they are not to hit you back. Well, I am now a mom of a teenage son, and he's broken up with girls and because he has some of them would tell him that they would hit him if they see him again or scratch his face up. I raised him it's not right to hit a girl or a woman but you don't just sit there and let them beat you or scratch you up, try to leave or lock yourself in a room. I understand why people feel they way they do about what Chris Brown has done, but it really blows me away that no one thinks Rhianna was also wrong for hitting him also. I thought my child not to put his hands on anyone and I don't want anyone putting their hands on him.


penelope brace   April 7th, 2009 3:28 am ET

s a retired police sergeant I am appaled at the actions of Chris Brown and his paramour Rainnna. By law,the the victim of this offence is the commonwealth ofwhere the crime took place. Rainna isnthe spokespewrson for a major cosmetic firm and she does not and never will represent my interests as a female and an officer who has delt with this problem all of my long career, I urfe upon all parents of chilkdren, both male and female, to discuss this issue with their chidren and stop the cycle of violence.


Clinton   April 7th, 2009 3:29 am ET

I think Chris Brown should plead guilty for abusive behavior.Chris should deal with the consequeses so he can with his demons.The issue with Chris Brown sound that he has had a history of dealing with abusive relationships.Chris Brown should get the help so won't continue this pattern of behavior.Rianna should be extra careful about the situation because only a victim once than become the volenteer.


Chris   April 7th, 2009 3:36 am ET

I think Judge Judy hit it right. It's not a domestic violence issue. They're not married, they're not living together. It's an assault charge. It should be treated as such, and he should be treated as any normal citizen.


Julie   April 7th, 2009 3:38 am ET

There is an interesting juxtaposition of events today. That is this first hearing for the Chris Brown/Rhianna case and the release of a video of the Taliban beating a 17 year old girl for leaving her home with someone other than her husband.

It's important to see the parallels in our world. Both Chris and Rhianna have an important opportunity to change patterns and advocate non-violence.

Hopefully, they will both be directed to counseling, rehabilitation, and a path to realize their higher selves.


Topsy   April 7th, 2009 5:26 am ET

It is not unexpected watching this female judges saying that Chris Brown should be prosecuted and sent to jail.I am a big fan of Rihanna and would always be but I think he should be giving a second chance.I do not not want to see a young and promising career destroyed by a domestic altercation.What I want to see talked about more is both physical and mental abuse against men by their spouses.


Kelvin from Cameroon   April 7th, 2009 6:32 am ET

Forgive Seventy Times Seven (Mt 18:21-35). We are in the last week of lent (Holy Week) and we Christians are called upon to pray, reconcile and to be charitable. Good Friday is close at hand, the day our lord and savior, Jesus Christ, died on the cross so that sins may be forgiven. God bless


Kelvin from Cameroon   April 7th, 2009 7:02 am ET

Education is imperative and parents shouldn't continue to adhere to a child's special desire. One doesn't need to go to a special school to be able to sing or act. With a bit of training and practice, one should be able to sing or act. There are already so many musicians and actors but the world is running short of oil, ice is melting and there are still conflicts allover the world. We need more creative thinkers and researchers instead of entertainers. In such a situation, Rhianna stance is indispensable, parents have to reconsider they way they bring up their children, activist have to do their jobs, the courts have to do their jobs and Religion has to prevail. God bless.


Kelvin from Cameroon   April 7th, 2009 7:13 am ET

If you Love someone, you won't raise your voice at him/her let alone brutalise her/him, you won't divorce him/her since true love never dies. One love.


JOE   April 8th, 2009 6:40 am ET

I think there's more than what is being presented. For one, those were pretty severe bruises on her face and i'm sure someone's knuckles would have been marked. She had a bloddy lip and nose. Which means that using a Luminol or forensic flashlight, the police would have detected blood stains on Brown's fist; even if he washed his hands. She was also bitten. HELLO?? TEETH DNA??? There are only one set of teeth as there are fingerprints.
I havent heard of one bit of this evidence presented. Her story sounds a bit strange also. She said that she threw his car keys out the window, he couldnt find them, got mad and all she can remember is that he had his hands around her neck and she woke up all messed up.
Now unless Chris Brown was once a heavy-weight champ, knocking someone out on the first punch while driving is unusal. She would have remembered at least being hit once. Also, if she was knocked out on the first punch, why would he bite her and continue beating her? AGAIN, WHILE DRIVING? When you get knocked out, your body leans over if your sitting and you hit the ground if you're standing. That doesn't even sound right for a career batterer.
THERE'S TOO MANY THINGS THAT THE POLICE COULD HAVE GOTTEN OUT OF BROWN AT THE STATIONHOUSE. I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THEY TOOK NO SAMPLES OF HIS DNA FROM HIS FISTS OR CHECK FOR BLOOD STAINS USING THE BLUE LIGHT. IF THE PROSECUTION HAD THIS, THEY WOULDN'T NEED RHIANNA'S TESTIMONY.
I TAKE NEITHER SIDE, I'M JUST EXPLAINING IT HOW I SEE IT. CHRIS BROWN IS GETTING TOO MUCH HATRED OUT OF THIS. AND SOMEONE MENTIONED EARLIER HOW MEN GET AWAY WITH THESE TYPES OF CRIMES, I WANT TO KNOW WHAT PLANET SHE'S FROM. MY BROTHER, A RETIRED POLICE OFFICER, ALMOST LOST HIS JOB BECAUSE HIS 16 YR OLD DAUGHTER TOLD THE DOCTOR THAT SHE WAS HIT IN THE HEAD BY HER FATHER TO AVOID BEING CHECKED FOR VIRGINITY. SHE WAS DATING A 21 YR OLD MAN AND HE WOULD HAVE BEEN ARRESTED FOR STATUTORY RAPE. SO SHE LIED ABOUT MY BROTHER HITTING HER AND MY BROTHER GOT DESK DUTY UNTIL THE MATTER WAWS CLOSED. SO I'M NOT TOO SURE ABOUT MEN GETTING AWAY WITH THESE THINGS. THE COURTS SEEM TO SHOW MORE LENIENCY TOWARDS THE WOMAN. BEDIDES MY BROTHER, MY WIFE GOT ME ARRESTED AFTER HER SON CAME AT ME WITH A BASEBALL BAT AND I SOCKED HIM IN HIS EYE. HER SON ADMITTED TO THE POLICE THAT HE HAD A BAT, AND I STILL GOT ARRESTED BECAUSE MY EX-WIFE PRESSED CHARGES OF ASSAULT. MEN DONT GET CRAP LENIENCY.
