    Good stuff. Makes me look at the T.I. situation a little differently. Perhaps he isn’t a complete idiot. Or if he is, it isn’t entirely his fault.

    Note the story on PMD a few days ago where an African American man was sodomized with a screwdriver by two Chicago police officers. I pose the question again if we can’t rely on the government to protect us then what makes TI wrong for wanting to protect himself?

    T.I. was definitely wrong. You can’t take the 4-5 crazy police encounters that you hear about in a given year, and make it into an epidemic that requires you to carry a terrorist arsenal in your crib. Most of us live in some of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the U.S., yet we can count on one hand how many bad things have happened to us as we INNOCENTLY strolled to & from work/school/etc. Some of us have dealt with more or less but the point is that if we are both sane & still breathing, and we are dealing with the worse that this country has to offer. As a result, I can’t understand anyones need for anybody else to start acting like they need to protect themself with a gun arsenal. T.I. lives in a huge house with a huge gate, with money for security and a SCARFACE-style camera system.

    Fuck that, TI was wrong by the hypocritical government’s standards. The same government that says marijuana is illegal while alcoholic beverages aren’t. They both provide no benefit to society so why aren’t they both illegal? Because a white man can make money off one and not the other. The one he can’t make money off of is illegal. With that said, who has the right to decide what is right or wrong? Oh yeah white people with money!

    Regarding the bad things that may or may not happen to the majority of good folks in bad neighborhoods, your a fool to not want to defend yourself no matter your level of wealth. These bad things that may or may not happen can lead to your death. So yeah, responsibly pack your pistols to the best of your ability.
