    This guy has a "rap" sheet as long as your arm, but his fan club doesn't understand that he is a career criminal with a history of felony assault, dealing in illegal weapons, lots of drugs, parole violations, and lots more. As long as a subculture has heroes like this guy, nobody is going to have much time or sympathy for that subculture. Lie down with dogs and you get up with fleas.

    Look bottom line is this. He went to jail. He is still on probation. I don't care if the whole police force was white and wearing hoods. He's should not have drugs anywhere near him. It doesn't matter if you are Black, White, Asian or anything in between. If he did have drugs in his car he'll go down for the drugs not his color. BTW i think Paris is going back to jail as well. It will be funny to see how this plays out and who gets off. White woman with a trail of smoke coming out of her car or Black man on probation with drugs in his car. Both with money. Let the case begin.

    I have read the comments and some of you have missed the mark. I blame everyone that is involved. That means the judges, prosecutors, defense attorney's and the police. This also means the defendants. I am ashamed of our legal system. It seems that they are being paid and not following the letter of the law. I live in the inner city and there is no way on God's green earth that someone from my neighborhood would be able to get away with this behavior. Johnny Cochran made a commericial about not getting felons off for carrying weapons. Apparently its the ones that don't have any money. One person said that it getting worse. Actors, actresses, athletes and people with money seem to be above the law. T.I if you are the smarted one in your crew you need a new crew. Everyone is grown but

    I agree with cici, so tired of people wanting to famous ppl 2 B there kids role model... Why and you know nothing about them except for the fact they play basketball, football, or a rapper. What about the rest of the person you had the kids you be the roll model. And if you want famous ppl to be your kids roll model let them model after the talent not what they do.

    The entertainment business(including professional sports) is full of drugs and lots of money to buy drugs. Everyone knows that most people in the "business" use. The only really sad thing is that TI did do that show where he was trying to help kids in trouble. Now those kids are seeing that TI didn't change, why should they. TI, get right man!!!!

    Don't jugde t.I but jugde yourself for we all have sinned and fell short of God's glory. If you want to do something pray for them. Not put them down it's easy to do that he's still God's child and we are no better. I wish the best for him and his family God bless them.

    First of do we go from T.I. subject to racism to Obama. All of this is a BIG MESS!! Nobody knows the real situation of this story. People need to grow up and get a life instead of being in other people business. Just because they're doing somethimg with thier self and maked some mistakes doesn't mean they are criminals.Everybody makes mistakes that we have to learn from them, no one but god can judge them. It takes some people longer to learn from their mistakes then others.
