An important correction to the Bobby Brown story which appeared on Classic Whitney on 13 June as well as on what is being reported in various news reports:
The state of Florida DISMISSED the charge of cocaine in Bobby's system. They did not merely "let it slide". It was dismissed because it could not be proven and if they did not dismiss it and Bobby chose not to plead, the state of Florida may well have lost their entire case against him. Good grounds for a lawsuit from Bobby Brown.
Bobby has served more active jail time than anyone can recall for a 1st time D.U.I. charge. He was held to a higher standard than any other 'average person', while he was never given preferential treatment by the court system, completely contradicting the legal process.
During his time at Broward County Jail, Bobby has been a model inmate, never complaining or asking for special treatment.
Internet media organisations should be challenged on their unfair reporting citing specifics for them to research - for example, how many of Bobby's critics have someone in their family or group of friends that has had one violation for D.U.I and served 75 days in jail? Internet sleuths, please research Florida's legal system, especially Broward county where several judges have been removed from the bench recently for ethics and criminal violations, as opposed to digging up allegations and innuendo on celebrities who can't possibly defend themselves from endless and baseless allegations on a global basis - nor should they, because any defence lends a small amount of credibility to the charge in some peoples eyes.
Please use the text of this report to post on Whitney Houston websites, bulletin boards, mailing lists, as well as mailing it to internet media organisations and ask them to at least consider what is being said here and ask that these organisations - as well as fans - take up the challenge of doing their own research. The reporting can at least be fair and accurate.
