Ex-D.C. Mayor Barry Unharmed in Robbery
Jan 3rd - 9:09am

WASHINGTON -- Marion Barry says his life flashed before his eyes as he stared at the barrel of a pistol during a robbery in his home Monday night.

The former mayor and current D.C. council member was robbed at gunpoint at his apartment by some kids who had helped him carry his groceries.

He says young people often beg for money by his Southeast home, and he typically lets them earn it by carrying groceries. He says he feels hurt and betrayed by the teenage boys who knew who he was and called him "B" during the robbery.

Barry, 69, 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.

Barry vows not to move from his home in Ward Eight, which he represents in the council. But he says he will push for tougher gun control laws.

Police recovered Barry's wallet, credit card and license. Police asked Barry not to say how much cash was taken.

Barry is apparently going to ask that the kids not get any jail time. Of course, the gun made them do it!

What a moron.

Letting criminals go free and banning guns will solve all of our problems!

They stole his crack.



As one of my old sergeants used to always say: "That's the high price of low livin'!"

Just curious, but how is it possible to make gun control laws more strict in DC?

That man has done more damage to the black community in DC than any other man I can think of in history. He sees his constituents as victims, and encourages them to think the same. He has no concept of personal responsibility.

It leaves a bad taste in my mouth to read anything about him.

His name hasn't been in the news lately, he's probably just trolling for ink. I doubt anyone even bothered to look around for his wallet.

"Did you know if you were caught and you were smoking crack
McDonalds would'nt even wanna take you back?
You could always just run for mayor of D.C."

The man truley is a fool if he STILL hasn't learned.

The Bitch set me up...

Oh, sorry. A few years late.

Isn't it nice how he gets a press conference just for being robbed. How about the 100's of others who were probably robbed recently? When can they have a press conference.

Yup. What an ass! The fact that he got reelected - even after doing time for the crack/prostitute incident - is very instructive as to the quality of people living in DC. I'm wondering if that dipshit Nagin will be reelected in NO.
