New York City mayor wants Plaxico Burress prosecuted

New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg said that he wants New York Giants’ wide receiver Plaxico Burress behind bars for shooting himself with an unlicensed handgun.

“It’s pretty hard to argue the guy didn’t have a gun and that it wasn’t loaded,” Bloomberg said, lashing out at the man who caught the winning touchdown in the 2008 Super Bowl.

“You’ve got bullet holes in and out to show that it was there.”

Burress had a loaded Glock semiautomatic in his waistband at the Latin Quarter nightclub early Saturday, when it slipped down his pant leg and went off when he tried to grab it, police said.
New York law requires a minimum of 3-1/2 years in jail for a conviction of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, the charge Burress faces.

“I don’t think that anybody should be exempt from that,” Bloomberg said. “It would be an outrage if we don’t prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.”
