Frank Ocean Takes High Road, Won't Press Charges Against Chris Brown

Frank Ocean was initially pumped about pressing charges against Chris Brown over the parking space brawl they had earlier this week, but upon further review, heís apparently decided to take the high road. The singer announced today that he will neither sue nor testify against his alleged attacker for the sake of forgiveness and peace.
Hereís a look at the entire explanation Ocean posted on his personal websiteÖ
Ēas a child i thought if someone jumped me it would result in me murdering or mutilating a man. but as a man i am not a killer. iím an artist and a modern person. iíll choose sanity. no criminal charges. no civil lawsuit. forgiveness, albeit difficult, is wisdom. peace, albeit trite, is what i want in my short life. peace.Ē
With no long-term injuries, itís understandable and even admirable that Ocean would rather simply move on from this situation than waste months in a court room either trying to gain money or justice. That being said, thereís still a possibility this wonít be the last we hear about this case. The skirmish reportedly broke plenty of nice things inside the record studio, and someone is going to need to pay for the damage done. Given Ocean and Brown both have money, however, hopefully, theyíll take care of that amongst themselves and put this whole mess behind them.
Pop Blendís sincerest well-wishes go out to Ocean for choosing civility over vengeance. Fingers crossed Brown decides the same thing.
