Tank-you for the jail time

Chicago Bears defensive lineman Tank Johnson was sentenced last week to four months in jail for violating probation in a 2005 gun case. Johnson was arrested on misdemeanor weapons charges Dec. 14 after police raided his home in the Lake County town of Gurnee, about 40 miles northwest of Chicago, and found six unregistered firearms. Before he was sentenced Johnson pleaded with Cook County Circuit Judge John Moran for leniency. "Your honor, I don't believe I'm a man who belongs in jail," he said.

Tank is 100% correct. Prison isn’t meant for parole violators who hoard weapons like they belong to the Michigan Militia. Afterall, packing heat is his constitutional right. Taking away a brother’s gat is like castrating Ron Mexico. A brother ain’t a brother if he doesn’t have a potent 8 inches in his pocket, ready to kill.
