(Newser) – He avoided jail, but Chris Brown didn't exactly get off scot-free: A judge in LA ordered him yesterday to complete 1,000 hours of community service, reports E! Online. And this time it has to be in California, not his home state of Virginia. Brown nearly had his probation revoked because of a hit-and-run accident and allegations that he faked records of previous community service. (An example from TMZ: He once claimed to be picking up trash in Virginia when he was on a plane to Cancun.) Brown's service choices include beach cleanup or graffiti removal, and he has a year to put in the hours. All of this current probation trouble stems from his beating of Rihanna four years ago.

I wish every time one of these chicken shit mf's beats hell out of a woman, someone would go beat the hell out of his Mother and Father. And it should be someone bigger, younger, stronger than his mother and father, and they should beat them just as brutally as he beat that girl. And you know what, about 9 out of ten of those mfs would quit beating women. So the next time someone beats the hell out of your sister, your daughter, your best friend, go kick the shit out of that bastard's parents. Let HIM see how it feels for a change. And yes, I'm talking about kicking the shit out of Jerry Remy too. Then let's feel sorry for the parents of the abusers, but not one second sooner.
