Looks like ex-Mayor Marion Barry got a little taste of DC's home town hospitality, more or less a product of his own inept government from years ago... Hope he liked it.

Ex-D.C. Mayor Barry Unharmed in Robbery
By DERRILL HOLLY
Associated Press Writer

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.

Quoting StevenUhl777 (Reply 3):

come on guys, it might be karma, but it isn't justice ...

justice is upholding the law, not relishing in the fact when two armed thugs hold up a senior citizen at gunpoint when he was going about his law-abiding business

to advocate one law being broken to satisfy another (when he did do his court-appointed time in prison) just isn't right

ANC, this is just another statistic for gun controllers to use in their cause

true, berry is/was scum, totally wrong to have done the things he did, and never should have been mayor to start with, much less get another term

but, if you believe in true justice, then you know he went before a jury of his peers and was sentenced and carried out his sentence. is he still a d*ck; i'd imagine so, but does he deserve to have the crap scared out of him, with a presumingly loaded gun held to his head? no.

he planted bad seeds, and maybe some have some back to bite his wrinkled ass

but this isn't justice, its just another crime having been committed in washington

...

i will place bets, however, that the good mayor pissed his drawers ...

...

I don't see how that can be since DC has the toughest gun control laws in the nation.

If anything, this is proof that gun control laws don't work.

What's the likelihood that he was doing more business with those kids than simply grocery transportation? Just guessing.

Quick question.
Would people's perception of Marion Berry be different if he was busted sniffing white powder cocaine?

Comparing a rumor about youthful indiscretions (never proven to my knowledge, even though taken as gospel by many in the crowd) to a criminal act while serving as an elected official is slightly disengenuous....would you not agree?

I don't care if it's hash or heroin......the dude was drugging up in a cheap hotel with a crack whore and got busted.......why would you defend this....or deflect criticism by playing the unnecessary race card here?

No, I didn't miss a thing.

Your post was centered around useing only a definition of the word justice based upon it's legal context as pertaining to modern western legal systems and ignoreing the more traditional meaning of the word. It's not a debate worth entering into unless you are willing to conceed that there is such a concept as justice other than that delivered by a court of law.

It's no secret that Barry is crooked, corrupt, and a destructive force upon his city. In a non-legal use of the word, it certainly is justice that he recieved what he helped promote.

Until the age of 40?
You and I are both under 40 and we can't get away with any "youthful indiscretions" if we commit a crime.

Also, a DUI (which IS documented) is bad whether you're an elected official or an unemployed spoiled brat of an elected official.

Hey wait... you're right.

You were responding to someone else on a public forum that has an opinion that I agree with.

How dare I respond.

I mean, surely.. I shouldn't ever think about entering an ongoing public debate... who do I think I am after all?

OK...so you are not trying to make some point on racism by insinuating there is a difference between crack and cocaine? Because most of the people who bring that point up are saying that it's a racial issue.

OK...so you are saying that not only do you have definitive proof that President Bush snorted cocaine, but you personally know that he did this until age 40? You are HOOKED UP!!! You got all the info! Man, that's stronger than a garlic milkshake!

It's more of a class issue than a race issue. I've seen plenty of White crackheads too.
Stop being so hypersensetive to the race issue.


Dubya never held a full-time job until the age of 40 and that IS documented. His DUI at the age of 36 IS documented.
So it's easy to assume that the dumbass was just jacking off until he found JAYZUSS at the age of 40.

Lots of things are easy to assume....you make it a point to treat as fact what are only accusations when you discuss things, which appears to some to be an effort to make something accepted by constant use in spite of the facts.

Not very accurate.
