Don’t Drop The Soap : Plaxico gets an earful from Rikers Island inmates
What did you think they were gonna do? Welcome him with open arms?
He deserves no special treatment for trying to be a wannabe thug in a club with a gun. Next time hire security and concentrate on being a superstar wide receiver.
Plaxico Burress got a zero’s welcome behind bars at Rikers Island, including taunts of “a – - hole!” and “The Giants suck!” according to jail guards.
“He was depressed,” said one guard from Rikers, where the former Giants superstar spent his first-ever night behind bars. “He was trying to keep to himself, but everyone was yelling at him.”
“These people got nothing,” a second guard explained of the taunts. “What else are they gonna do?”
Burress began serving a two-year sentence yesterday for accidentally shooting himself in the thigh with his own Glock while drinking in the crowded VIP vestibule of the Latin Quarter nightclub in Midtown last November.
