TI's Surprise Visit to Atlanta-area Middle School Upsets Parents

Fresh out of prison after serving time for gun charges, TI made a surprise visit to Woodland Middle School in Henry County, Ga. on March 5 to deliver a speech on the dangers of bullying, which was part of his post-jail community service. One parent was pissed off and called 11Alive News to vent because, according to him, if he knew the rapper was making an appearance, he would have kept his daughter at home. In an e-mail to the school's principal, Tom Myers wrote: "How about next time, let [TI] mow the grass or pick up the trash around the school grounds? If the kids see that they might understand that what he did was wrong." To which principal Dr. Terry Oatts responded: "I thought about asking a guy who snorted cocaine and got arrested for DUI when he was 30 to come and speak to our kids, but President George W. Bush was not available." Touchè, Dr Oatts, but next time let parents know when a convicted felon will be speaking to their kids.
