ATLien, I showed my boyfriend your post about T.I. saving the guy from committing suicide yesterday and he swore me up and down that the whole thing is a publicity stunt. He says that in the movie “Talk to Me,” Don Cheadle played Petey Green a Radio One talk show host who was a ex-con.
Petey Green had a radio show in prison and convinced another convict to go to the top of the prison and pretend to want to jump. The “suicidal” convict told the warden that he would only talk to Petey Green. So Petey Green made a deal with the warden that he could talk him down. I’m rambling but in the movie Petey Green said that it took him months to talk the guy into doing it for him. The whole plot was that that Petey Green wanted to decrease his prison time and the good deed worked. The Warden cut his time and he got out.
When he told me that movie it struck me that maybe it wasn’t a coincidence that T.I. was in the area after all. I’m just sayin. It’s something to think about.
