When I read the unending accolades about this guy by other Talk Back posters, disappointment sets in.

What don't you people understand?

A Convicted Felon, trying to obtain Machine Guns/Silencers (a serious crime, regardless) gets snagged and now it's "Oh gee, he just made a mistake"?

Folks, this is a FEDERAL crime and needless to say, Federal Judges don't have the luxury and cannot OVERRULE the minimum prison time associated with this statute.

If you or I were found guilty of this and we weren't of "Celebrity Status" (a totally misused term in our society), we'd be gone and unfortunately, as much as he's "loved" by his fans, he'll be going to a Federal Lockup for a long time. No one is above the law!

Sorry to burst your bubble and/or skew your misguided loyalty, but that's how it works.

Please get around the smoke and mirrors and understand that TI is NOT a role model for anyone and by his actions, promotes the culture of violence that is and will continue to be "RAP", a growing cancer (amongst many other issues) on our civility towards each other.

TI is just another example of what not to do just because you are famous. Don't get me wrong i love TI but every crime has its punishment, he knew he was not suppose to carry a firearm, he did make a mistake everyone does but life goes on. All I can say is Keep Your Head UP TI. you have a lot of fans that look up to you so try to do the right thing.
I Love you and Your lyrics 2. my kids love u 2.
Keep the faith

A brilliant adolescent nonsensical reply, which should be nominated for some sort of mindless MTV award. I couldn't have said it any better in my native Pig Latin.

Are you on any medication or perhaps, need a prescription refill?
