WASHINGTON (AP) - Former District of Columbia Mayor Marion Barry was robbed at gunpoint at his apartment by some youths who had helped him carry his groceries.


Barry, who wasn't injured in the Monday night robbery, said he gave the youths a couple of dollars for helping unload groceries from his car and they left. They returned, however, and after Barry let them into his Southeast apartment, they pointed a gun at his head and took his wallet, which contained cash and credit cards, Barry told WRC-TV.


"Obviously, I'm traumatized. To have a pistol cocked in your face is not something you cannot feel emotional about," Barry said.


Barry, 69, is a member of the City Council and served four terms as mayor. In his third term, he was videotaped in 1990 in a hotel room smoking crack cocaine in an FBI sting. The following year, he served a six-month prison sentence.


He is awaiting sentencing later this month in federal court on his guilty plea to two misdemeanor counts stemming from his failure to file income tax returns in 2000.

A lie.

Everyone knows that a) there are no guns in DC, and b) Marion Barry is worshipped by the kinds of people who would do this sort of thing.

Someone search Snopes.

that's because they don't have enough gun control.

Guns are illegal in DC

I hope they didn't get his stash of crack cocaine. It is important that government officials are the only ones who smoke crack rock.

Why did he let them in after he went into his place?

I'd say this was a drug score that went down bad.

I about fell over when I heard that this morning. What kind of idiot lets complete strangers help him into his house with groceries in the dark of night and then gives them "a few dollars"??? That is what sensible people call being "cased".



They were sucking that glass dick together.



Given his history and the bizarre nature of the story, that is a more likely story.

Glass dick refers to a crack stem.

I blame the NBA for having a team called the Bullets for so many years in DC...

No, no, no. He said it was groceries.

I was told be a cop when I lived in the area that there were still three legal, registered in '76 (I think that was the year) and grandfathered. He also told me all three were judges.

Of course, I also knew a DC cop that was on their anti-gun task force that thought that ALL guns were illegal in DC. And this was only a few months after the DC police had some sort of town meeting and showed people what types of guns were stull legal (some shotguns and some rifles).

Whatever it was, it WAS "poetic justice" or the "cat eatin the canary" or "no good deed goes unpunished" or some other truism about human nature.

They probaly wanted to see if they could take his rock

One thing's for sure, the NBA does not need to do the "Basketball without Borders". There's plenty to do right here. They could all become deputy sheriffs like Shaq.

What do you want to bet that Barry will add to the Bloomberg chorus that the "fight for gun control" has to be taken to other states? Maybe it happened in the way he said, maybe not: I wasn't there. But it sure is convenient, though. ANd, Barry as mayor is certainly a role model - oh, that's right, for criminals. The kids were just doing what they see....

OK, step right up, let's get those bets in....ok, you're faded...

This is nothing but a campain ad for this guy. He must be running for office in DC again, hooker and crack got in him the last time.

He is trying to get empathy from DC residences with the "They stole my crack" angle. Happens to everyone , right ?

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. I that is unfortunate. I used to work with this older guy ex-USMC WWII who always carries a gun with him even though he didn't have a Calif CCW. He was always concerned about getting mugged or robbed.

Any witnesses....? Of course not. If he's so damned special why doesn't he
1. live in a better neighborhood?
2. Have "bodyguards"?

I think this whole thing was either staged or completely fabricated to further the agenda.
