In Atlanta, T.I, the rapper, is sentenced to one year and a day in prison after he pleaded guilty to federal weapons charges. T.I. was arrested in 2007 after trying to purchase unregistered machine guns to protect himself after his best friend had been killed. He wasn’t charged until today, because as part of his deal he had to fulfill his duties in performing his community service project which was shown on MTV. T.I will need to report to jail sometime after May 19. He has done over 1000 hours in community service, where he’s talked to young people about drugs, guns and violence. T.I said that “everything he learned was through trial and error.” We hope that he has truly learned one of life’s biggest lessons. Violence is never the way to go.
