Violence is NEVER the answer!
The day is finally here!
Today, the preliminary hearing for douchebag Chris Brown's assault trial will be underway and a star witness will be in attendance: Miss Rihanna herself!
Though RiRi was subpoenaed to appear in court, it is still uncertain if she will testify. DO IT!
She has the right to refuse, which may result in some minor fines if she does, but experts expect that a judge would be reluctant to fine her since this is a domestic violence case. If she does take the stand, it is expected she will be grilled and questioned for no less than 2 hours between both sides and it is unclear to how the testimony will go, though it is pivotal to the case.
If Rihanna testifies and seems believable and genuine, then it would be presumed that the case will go to trial or force Chris to accept a plea bargain. If not, Chris' lawyers will be seeking two lesser charges, or have the case completely dismissed.
In other words, her testimony makes or breaks the whole damn thing.
We hope she gives him hell! We hope she stands up for herself and all women (or men) who have ever been subject to this kind of abuse. Because, honestly, it isn't just about her anymore. If she takes a stand and does what's right, others will follow her example.
So be brave, girl! We're all rooting for you!
