Bully Cop Who Beat Up Woman Gets “Sentenced”

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.

His sentence? A home curfew and anger management classes. The Judge actually said (hold on): “If I believed sentencing Anthony Abbate to prison would stop people from getting drunk and hitting people, I’d give him the maximum sentence.” Since the same logic could apply to all crimes, can we apply that logic to non-crime crimes like drunk driving and selling/using drugs? Also note that the scumbag claimed “self-defense,” even in light of the video play-by-play of the beating.
