Frown At Brown In Town

This critique of Chris Brown's return to the Grammy awards last night gives the impression that the entertainment industry, which is generally pretty proud of its superior enlightenment, may be soft on violence against women:
I want to say this to anyone who is listening: This is not okay with me. A man hitting a woman in anger is unacceptable and is not easily forgotten or forgiven. A man who hits a woman in anger deserves to be reported to the authorities and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, regardless of who might be inconvenienced in the process. A man who hits a woman in anger may eventually be permitted to go on with his own life, but he is not permitted back in my life, even if it’s been three whole years.
