no, he got total probation

and of course ANGER MANAGEMENT CLASSES. fuck that. the woman was brutally beaten by this thug. why? BECAUSE SHE WAS A BARTENDER AND SHE CUT HIM OFF. the evidence is as clear as a bell. see my original posting for the video (yes, it's ON VIDEO)


i wonder what it would have taken for abbate to do any time? murder? then what would he have gotten? 30 days?

and to judge fleming: in this case you shouldn't care about what or if OTHER PEOPLE drink or over drink. it's abbate that committed THIS particular crime. it's ABBATE THAT MUST PAY FOR THIS PARTICULAR CRIME. (NOT some other drunk sitting at home and not beating anyone up)

Cop taped beating Chicago bartender gets probation

CHICAGO (AP) -- An off-duty Chicago police officer convicted of pummeling a female bartender half his size was sentenced Tuesday to two years probation and anger management classes for the videotaped attack that appeared worldwide on the Internet and cable news channels.

Cook County Circuit Judge John Fleming also gave Anthony Abbate, 40, a home curfew of 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. and ordered him to perform 130 hours of community service.

"No one in recent memory ... has done more to tarnish the reputation of the Chicago Police Department than Anthony Abbate," Cook County Assistant State's Attorney LuAnn Snow said Tuesday.

Prosecutors had asked for prison for Abbate - he could have been sentenced to up to five years behind bars - but the judge said he didn't see aggravating factors to justify a prison term. The judge said Abbate had a clean record before the incident, did not seriously injure the bartender, and underwent alcohol rehab "and has not had a relapse."

"If I believed sentencing Anthony Abbate to prison would stop people from getting drunk and hitting people, I'd give him the maximum sentence," Fleming said...........

Don't you just want to beat your head into the wall some days? But then why hurt a perfectly innocent wall?

i've been following a ct case very closely. the sentencing was today. a friend of mine was in a horrible accident involving tens of vehicles. he was badly hurt as were many many others. four died. it was the fault of the owner of a company whose trucks should never have been on the road.

my friend is actually writing a book about this with ALL proceeds going to the victims and their families.

ok, once again i digress. THIS MAN, DAVID WILCOX actually DID get a sentence he MUST serve
