I don’t know how to feel about this, but Clifford “TI” Harris is going back to jail, again and again and again. There is no way I can justify him not going to jail, but I do have a soft spot for a man that talked a suicide victim off a ledge just days before his court hearing. T.I. couldn’t couldn’t justify why he shouldn’t go to jail, either. He told the just and I quote:
I screwed up. I screwed up big-time, and I’m sorry. I’m truly and sincerely sorry. I don’t want and I don’t need to use drugs anymore. I want them out of my life.
He didn’t start off with “what had happened was,” so he knew throwing himself on the mercy of the court was his only legal defense. The judge was unmoved by the apology, as clearly shown by his use of ebonics (I’m sorry Ebonics, it’s now an official dialect):
I think Mr. Harris has had about the limit of second chances. You certainly dumped a lot of smut on the whole experiment.
Does anyone believe T.I. shouldn’t go to jail at this point?
