1015_TILeavesCourt_AP101015025865_AP_BN
T.I. was busted last month on felony possession of a controlled substance ... while he was on probation for a 2009 federal gun possession conviction.

T.I. told the judge he needed help for drug addiction and begged not to be sent back to prison.

We're told one of the officers from Wednesday's jumper incident testified on T.I.'s behalf.

He has two weeks to turn himself in.

Felony Probation...you dont mess around with that. Racism??? The whites are the minority these days. The whites get jobs and work hard and pay taxes to feed the welfare recepients and when they run out of their welfare money....they break into white peoples houses and cars and steal from them. The economy is so screwed up...white people are losing jobs and get denied benefits. Cant get jobs because they have to hire so many others races to keep it fair.....what is fair about all that. Gonna get s**t for saying it, but most people agree and just don't say anything.

Stop with the black man BS. There is a huge difference between a guy who got thrown in jail already for a weapons charge and a girl who gets caught with personal possession or driving stupid while stoned.

So this is what we call injustice in the system, Why is it, when any famous african american figure or celebrity gets involved in the law..they throw the book at them, giving them hard sentences..eg..Micheal Vick,Palexco burress,Mike Tyson, Lil Wayan,...list goes on, but when the Paris Hiltons, lindsay Lohans and other spoiled lil crack hoars get in trouble, they give them a slap of the wrist and tell them to behave next time. That is B.S and that is major prejudice in the american Judicial system. it goes to show you boys and girls, thatif your white and have rich parents..you too are above the law

I am amused at this double standard.
Lindsay and Paris, keep gettin' these "do-overs". Oh, just a hot looking girl with coke in her purse. We don't want to send HER to jail.
The public doesn't know even half of the drugs, that Lindsay has done, or that have been in her position. The details of which, have been conveniently redacted from public information.

Whole other set of rules, if a woman is abusing prescription drugs. Highly addictive drugs, that were obtained fraudulently; by doctor shopping, or buying stolen prescriptions.


But let a black man or woman do the same, and I see whole different set of rules applied.
And for the record, I am a white girl. And I say, this is compete b.s.

This separate and unequal dispensation of law, probation terms, etc. is disguisting.

The question i'm asking is how the hell could he do this to his kids? When you've got three kids to look after, you don't do stupid sh*t like this! T.I. clearly knows nothing about being a father, his wife isn't much better, T.I. and Tiny are starting to rival Dina and Michael Lohan in the bad parenting department.

Because crimes likely to be committed by blacks have stiffer penalties than those likely to be commited by whites. Look at crack and cocaine. Being caught with an ounce of crack carries stiffer penalties than being caught with an ounce of cocaine. Why? Look at who does crack and who does cocaine. Harry Connick Jr. was caught with a gun at an airport, which is federal, and they let him walk on the argument that he wasn't trying to hide it. Whatever!
