Earl Simmons aka DMXIn May Earl Simmons aka DMX, was arrested and charged with seven misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty and four felony counts of drug possession after three dead dogs, many emaciated dogs, drugs and guns were found at his Arizona home.  Earlier that same week he was booked on charges of racing on a highway, reckless driving, two counts of endangerment and three counts of criminal speed and driving on a suspended license.

Well looks like Simmons is going to be getting quite a break some some reason and cut quite the deal. On Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of animal cruelty, one felony count of theft, and one count each of felony possession of marijuana and a narcotic drug. When he is sentenced on January 30 he is expected to receive a 90 day minimum jail sentence and all the other charges will be dismissed.

Oh, he also can’t own any animals or firearms and will be required to attend an animal-offender treatment program.

This guy has a background of criminal behavior: In 1999 he pleaded guilty to animal cruelty, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia after police found pipes for smoking crack cocaine, a pistol and 13 pit bulls at his home in Teaneck, N.J. There’s also been weapons charges, parole violations and fraud charges.

Can someone explain to me how he can do this, over and over again, and cut a sweet deal where he will be back on the streets pretty quick.  He’s shown he has little regard for the law, isn’t it time to teach him a serious lesson?

This just disgusts me!  It’s beyond pathetic and so is this waste of human life and you wonder why our youth of today does some of the things they do, look at the icons they follow.  They see sports figures, celebrities, etc. doing the crime and as for doing the time, what a joke!  Yeah, we’re teaching our children really good lessons. 🙁
