Chris Brown is the one who needs to shut up

Acknowledged girlfriend-beater Chris Brown is criticizing his ex, Rihanna, for revealing graphic details of the beating he inflicted on her, according to People:

I maintain my position that all of the details should remain a private matter between us.

Wrong (and terribly self serving). When you commit a crime, the details of that crime are public. Your crime is not only against the victim — who has the right to speak about it or not speak as the victim, not the perpetrator, sees fit — but it is also against society.

Brown owes a debt not only to Rihanna but also to society. Remember, the crime to which Brown pleaded guilty is felony assault with the intent of doing great bodily injury. It’s not a minor technicality kind of crime. It’s a big deal.

Brown is essentially telling Rihanna to shut up. Sure sounds like an abuser to me, and it sure looks to me like that he’s still got a lot of work to do in that year-long domestic violence counseling class the judge sentenced him to take.

And every time Brown speaks about this subject except to say “I was wrong” or “I’m ashamed” or “I’m sorry” he shows us again how much of an ass he really is.
