What the FUCK really?! The guy is 250lbs pummeling this woman in a drunken rage!! The judge refused to give a harsher sentence b/c he had a clean record, & went to rehab. WTF WTF WTF!?!?!?! In the era of Chrissy Two Fists the beaters are getting away w/a slap on the wrist!! Ladies we need some hammers!! The bullet taking kind!!

An off-duty Chicago police officer convicted of pummeling a female bartender half his size was sentenced Tuesday to two years probation and anger management classes for the videotaped attack that appeared worldwide on the Internet and cable news channels.

Cook County Circuit Judge John Fleming also gave Anthony Abbate, 40, a home curfew of 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. and ordered him to perform 130 hours of community service.

Prosecutors had asked for prison for Abbate — he could have been sentenced to up to five years behind bars — but the judge said he didn’t see aggravating factors to justify a prison term. The judge said Abbate had a clean record before the incident, did not seriously injure the bartender, and underwent alcohol rehab “and has not had a relapse.”

“If I believed sentencing Anthony Abbate to prison would stop people from getting drunk and hitting people, I’d give him the maximum sentence,” Fleming said. [HP]
