Reader: Chris Brown shouldn't still be defined by attack on Rihanna two years later

Chris & Evrod.
This week, CBS4 removed a photo from its website featuring new anchor Evrod Cassimy arm-in-arm with Chris Brown, the singer convicted of assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. Our post on the subject has generated a wide variety of comments, including many defenses of Brown. Here's one example that focuses on redemption.

Shell517nj writes:

How petty can you get? Hear that, young people? You don't have a chance in society if you do something wrong. Something you regret everyday. There is no redeeming yourself whatsoever. As for Chris Brown, I believe in this young man. I believe everyone can do better than their worst day. I wish Chris all the best!

Lock me in a Lamborghini with Chris Brown and see what happens.

Once a woman beater, always a woman beater.

He's NOT still defined by said attack. The article in question was so outdated and late to the party it was embarrassing.

Most people, when they think of Chris Brown, think of a douchebag, cry-baby, insecure, woman-beater.  I'll bet that you have all of his albums and beat off to his photographs every night.

So the message, young people, is this:  You can do whatever you want, including beat the shit out of someone smaller and weaker than you, all you have to do is say you're sorry and appear to mean it.

How about this lesson instead?:  There are those men who hit women, and those men who don't.  You will forever be known as one or the other.

Chris Brown hits women.
