Eminem sentenced to probation

Rap star Eminem, who has long been criticized for his violent and misogynist lyrics, has been sentenced to one year of probation and 21 days of community service for a weapons charge by a Michigan Circuit judge, according to The Associated Press. Eminem was accused of carrying a concealed weapon and brandishing a 9mm gun at members of the rap group Insane Clown Posse during an argument in a Detroit parking lot. “Poor judgment is an understatement for what you did,” intoned Judge Denise Langford Morris. Eminem pleaded not guilty to the charges, asserting that he pointed the gun at no one and that it was not loaded.
