Frank Ocean won’t press charges against Chris Brown

Despite the fact that it would feel just SO good to see Chris Brown actually be held accountable for his actions for once, Frank Ocean posted on his Tumblr that he’s decided to be a better person and show mercy by choosing not to press charges on Chris. While I can respect Frank for taking the high-road and showing compassion to a person for whom it’s hard to feel to compassionate, come on … we were *this* close to throwing his spoiled, violent ass in the slammer!

AS A CHILD I THOUGHT IF SOMEONE JUMPED ME IT WOULD RESULT IN ME MURDERING OR MUTILATING A MAN. BUT AS A MAN I AM NOT A KILLER. I’M AN ARTIST AND A MODERN PERSON. I’LL CHOOSE SANITY. NO CRIMINAL CHARGES. NO CIVIL LAWSUIT. FORGIVENESS, ALBEIT DIFFICULT, IS WISDOM. PEACE, ALBEIT TRITE, IS WHAT I WANT IN MY SHORT LIFE. PEACE.

The funny thing is, after the incident, Chris made a crappy painting and compared himself to Jesus, while Frank actually turned the other cheek and acted like a dignified, loving person. I guess what I’m trying to say is that if we’re picking out which one is acting like a better Christian, it’s probably not the guy who nearly beat Rihanna to death and then punched someone over a parking spot.
