T.I. Talks Down A Potential Jumper And Saves His Life!

| Filed under: InspirationT.I.


What an unbelievably brave and compassionate thing to do.

Rapper T.I. was in Atlanta, on his way to shoot a music video yesterday, when he heard that a young man was threatening to jump to his death from the roof of a 22-story building, so he rushed to the scene and helped authorities get him down!

Officer James Polite explains:

"He came to the scene and offered to talk to him, we told the young man that, and he came down. He didn’t have to stop. He could’ve kept on going about his business. We’re happy it ended the way it did, and we thank him."

The rapper reportedly convinced the man to come down by filming a quick video message and then sending it up to him!

He says:

“Something in me just said, ‘man you gotta try and help. You gotta do whatever you can.' "


And we think everyone is glad that you did stop!

A man still has his life because of it!

    Sounds fishy!!! Tryn to get ur sentenced knocked down?

  2. 2

    I thought he was a DANGEROUS CRIMINAL needing to be locked up to protect society….That's what the Gobermunt says.

  3. 3

    The only reason T.I. talked him down is because the jumper was his meth dealer. Good ones are so hard to find, you know.

  4. 4

    yea this sounds like something douchey T.I. would do for publicity to try to impress the judge…

  5. 5

    I wouldn't be one bit surprised if this was some sort of publicity stunt.

  6. 6

    maybe he offered him some ecstasy pills or sizzurp…………just sayin……..

    Re: Scooter – T.I.'s the dealer, not the user.

    Yeh, sorry…way too much of a coincidence for this to NOT be a set up. T.I. is going to court on Friday and just HAPPENS to swing by when there's a jumper….on the roof of a building where a Hip Hop radio show is broadcasting? Puh-leeze….show what a true hero you are T.I. and straighten up. You have no reason NOT to. Thug life is for losers.

    this sounds so fishy… and why the heck would that guy be so impressed if T.I came by. Is he really that famous, I bet practically no one you would stop on the street would be able to name one of his song and I cannot imagine why his message would carry any weight

    i think this was honest…. and btw have you looked at his wife? i'm positive the meth was her's……… the weed on the other hand.

    Re: Gina Moore-Castilleja – what the fuck you sinical retard so him helping someone is to reduce a sentence just believe people CAN do good things sometimes or are you soo bored at home that you want people to talk to you by replying to this message perfetic

    "You're Honor, my client is not a criminal and does not pose a threat to society. Just the other day he risked his own life to talk a troubled person from a suicide jump…is this a person that needs to be incarcerated?"
    Later in the hallway of the Federal Court T.I.'s attorney is overheard, " I got you off didn't I? That's why it's five grand for today and an additional two thousand to pay that actor that I got to play the jumper…"

    What's wrong with most people? Someone does bad and they're condemned, someone does good and they're accused of being fake. Are you people this judgmental towards your own family and friends?
