08:35 AM ET 09.19 | Plaxico Burress sits down at a little square table. He looks straight ahead at the three brown gates, razor-wired walkway and two metal doors that separate Oneida's 955 inmates from the outside world. "You can't go any lower than being here, other than being in the ground," Burress says. "It's about as tough as it gets, on a personal level. You learn a lot about yourself. You try to think about the bigger picture, about life outside these walls. You just try to find a way to get through."

Donte Stallworth runs a guy over while he's drunk and gets 30 days, and Plaxico shoots himself and gets a couple years. Hmm. . . Plaxico, I guess you should have hopped in your car after you shot yourself and run someone down.

Amazingly sad but true statement.

In all honesty, I do feel a little bit sorry for the guy. Yeah, he did something dumb to get himself put in to the clink, but if you look at the local newspaper, you'll see child predators get less time.

The whole legal system in this country is corrupt. Makes the mob look like a bunch of girl scouts.

Never heard of child predators getting less time than Plax. Many of them don't survive prison, even violent criminals have standards.

His only mistake was playing for the Giants. If he played for the Cowboys and shot himself in Texas they'd have probably made him a sheriff. :-)

If he lived in Texas, this would not have happened. People in Texas know how to handle guns. New Yorkers........well, the facts speak for themselves.

He was scr##ed the minute local politicians decided to show they were tough on crime and use him as proof.

Morning CD. You're right of course and Texans don't carry their guns in sweatpants.

Bloomberg should have been arrested for obstruction of justice. That probably doesn't apply, but it was a low class move. Loved the "story" told by Bloomberg about eating a hamburger with his g/f when a serviceman came up and complimented him about his stance on the Ground Zero mosque. Said he had a hamburger and a potato chip or something.

I completely agree CD. I learned as a young boy not to put anything in my pants that could harm the naughty bits.

You could also make a case with Reggie Bush vs OJ Simpson, not a fan of Bush (or Plex) but he should have kept Heisman, unless hes guilty lol How many days does Plexico have about a years worth? If he was on good behavior after one year, they should let him go, costing tax payers
