"Don't Get Caught In South Central, While Drinking Your Juice in Da Hood" - TI Ordered Back to Prison

Rapper, T.I., has been ordered back to prison for eleven months following his arrest in Los Angeles last month.

Seriously, our criminal justice system is flawed. Clearly, what T.I. (real name Clifford Harris) needs is rehabilitation for his addictions. More jail time is not the answer.

Please let me know your thoughts. I'd love to hear from you.

I couldn't agree more. It is clear that this young man has unaddressed issues. It is my hope that some mature entertainment-industry African-American sister or brother will reach out to this young person who is struggling with a real trick of Satan, the enemy, who is seeking to destroy. I pray that even while in prison, there will be a mature man in there who can reach him and plead with him to get in a good Bible-based program.

man r u saying that this man needs to be locked up for not getting a head in life but for being a rapper

Nope. I'm not saying either. I am saying that he should not be locked up at all for what he's locked up for. I am saying that he should be offered some type of substance abuse deterent program. I am saying that far too many young entertainers are being "locked up" for self-destructive, substance abuse-related issues, which, I believe, can only be successfully overcome through a solid Bible-based program.
