When someone does something wrong -- really wrong -- we still have to find it in our hearts to forgive them, possibly help them get the help they need, and everyone can heal. I was feeling that for Chris Brown even though I wanted to hate on him forevermore after what happened between him and Rihanna. But it seemed she forgave him, which is amazingly big of her (not to mention healing) and so the world tried to do the same. But it's clear Chris has some very deep issues that are unresolved because it happened again.
Chris Brown was arrested for felony assault in Washington D.C. in the wee hours of the morning. The incident occurred at 4:30 a.m. outside a swanky hotel.
I'm so disappointed. I wanted him to figure these anger issues out ... even though I don't know the guy and ... ahem ... hope to never piss him off. But it's just sad to see anyone so troubled and it seems every time we turn around there is another incident -- before this one there was that hit and run in May.
Brown is still on probation for the altercation with Rihanna in 2009. And he even recently said how he "learned from it" and that he had to stop acting like a "crazy, wild young guy." But something triggered his anger when he began punching a man outside the W hotel in D.C. earlier today. The cops were called. The man was rushed to the hospital. And Chris is now in custody of the police.
We can look at him and think he has everything -- money, success, talent -- but what does any of that mean when he can't find that inner peace? I also can't help for feel for Rihanna at a time like this. She no doubt will hear about his arrest and it may bring up some difficult emotions. It's not healthy to solve things with your fists. I really hope Brown learns that ... for real.
What do you think of Chris Brown being arrested for assault again? Expected? What do you think could be done to truly help him?
