Marion Barry Robbed At Gunpoint

WASHINGTON, Jan. 3, 2005 (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.

Right about what? That anyone can be the victim of a crime? CF, don't care about Marion Barry, he is a liberal politiian, CF, might say Marion being robbed was pay back for his robbing the people while in office.

There will be those who question the validity of his story and see it as an attempt to get sympathy before he is sentenced later this Month...

Is this funny?

Get it right. It is the SAMBOs who are advancing the "Stop Snitching" policy upon poor communities.

The Black Quasi-Socialist Fundamentalist are the one's who DON'T WANT THE BLACK COMMUNITY TO CHANGE but who figure that when the Country/White Community changes the Black community will benefit in large measure because our #1 adversary has agreed to play nice.
Of course I expect MBM to follow up with a reply to the effect that "I am right" that Black people are savages or thugs or something foolish such as this.

To the people of Washington DC who have defended Marion Barry, seeing him as a victim of a conspiracy by Whites who don't want him in power, working on behalf of the poor in DC this must be tantamount to Rosa Parks getting robbed in her home despite asking the thug "Do you know who I am" and he not caring.

Things are NOT going to change in these communities by:

1) Blaming Black conservatives for everything
2) Pointing to how the police have beaten Blacks as well
3) Lobbying to insure that the Democrats increase their Black vote to 95% up from 90%
4) Telling us that these boys were damaged due to Slavery's legacy

The mound of dirt that so many of you have swept under the carpet is now becoming so high that you can no longer walk around it. It must be dealt with.

You all are so used to ATTACKING a problem rather than MANAGING a problem toward a fix. Now that the problem is WITHIN - what are you going to do (besides blaming the outsiders for FAILING these "insiders")?

I was at a bar right after "Katrina" and I saw a girl wearing a t-shirt that said on the front "F.... George Bush". On the back it said "We all we got".

You all make heavy use of the FRONT OF THE SHIRT.

WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO START APPLYING THE MESSAGE ON THE BACK?

There will be no less than 100 people who suffer the same fate that Marion Barry did somewhere in the USA today. Their lack of noteriety will prevent their story from being told.

You're right. We should do what your boy Bill Bennett said and just abort all black babies. That'll get the crime rate down. Roll Eyes

Apparantly Marion Barry has not been taught the no snitchin rule...He was robbed to see if he would snitch, and now that he snitched it proves he deserved to be robbed, snitchin is what caused him to be robbed. ek

The fact that Bennet and his wive are virulent anti-Abortion activists is not enough to have you to admit how unlikely such an event is likely to happen under him as you said little about the ABORTION DOCTOR in Arkansas who offered to abort Black babies for free.
The Black people coming out of New Orleans had enough to deal with - why deal with a kid? Too much of a hasle. Right?

So...will things change as a result of your strategy....which is:

1) Blame everything on black liberals
2) Ignore incidents of police brutality and racism against blacks
3) Lobbying to increase the number of blacks who don't vote democratic.
4) Ignoring that the present is the summation and creation of the past.

5) being an UNCLE TOM or a white man pretending to be black


how does that strategy HELP?

So what you are saying then that IF BENNET or any other enemy conservative DID advocate mass abortion for Black babies - paying Black women to have them - YOU WOULDN'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT because it is legal?

What ARE YOU SAYING MBM?

It seems that you just presented "Manufactured Outrage" about Bennett's comments.

If in fact hundreds of thousands of Black women CHOOSE to have an abortion and this IN FACT does reduce the level of crime THE FACT THAT THEY "CHOSE" to abort the child is the OPERATIVE point NOT the resulting impact that closely parallel's Bennett's supposition?

I GOTCHA NOW DUDE.

The bigger offense is that HE DARED TO SAY IT.
MBM,

It is UNDERSTOOD those black babies would have been criminals...which really implies that criminal behavior is inherent to black people.......don't you get it? I wonder why i've never done time....maybe i'm white and do not know it.....because we know those white babies wouldn't have been criminals....they're not predisposed to it like the black ones (end sarcasm)..........
The sad part about it is TWO PARTS:

1) So many of us PROVE THEM WRONG - per the incidents in Milwaukee, DC and where the beatdown took place

and worst of all

2) Black people like YOU will go out of their way to DEFEND them. They will begin to understand how things work. They do whatever and then count on the "Slavery Did It" crowd like you to defend their actions.

The SAMBO music that put forth certain messages only reinforces this.

Kevin - Let me ask you - which FORCE do you think plays a larger part in the relatively low number of Black people who enter college each year:

a) The Proposition 209 type policies that elimate AA

b) The CULTURE that these students grow up in which is so often allowed to stray off course and snatch up an increasing number of Black people with the baseline intelligence to do otherwise but for the conditioning that they face?

TIME TO STEP UP PUNK.

CF - I'm being real patient and kind here. Now listen (read) carefully. There is a big difference between the state killing black children and women exercising their Constitutionally protected right to choice. I hope that even you can understand that.

women exercising their Constitutionally protected right to choice


At the end of either process the Black baby is................?

1) Alive because "We know not the womb that holds the king"?

or

2) Disposed of? Problem solved.

NICK CANNON LYRICS

"Can I Live"
(feat. Anthony Hamilton)

[Talking]
Talking Ma
I know the Situation is Personal
But it something that has to be told
As I was making this beat
You was all I could think about you heard my voice

[Verse 1]
Yeah Just think Just Think
What if you could Just
Just blink your self away..
Just Just wait just pause for a second
Let me plead my case
It's the late 70's Huh
You Seventeen huh
And having me that will ruin everything huh
It's alot of angels waiting on their wings
You see me in your sleep so you cant kill your dreams
300 Dollars thats the price of living what?
Mommy I dont like this clinic
Hopefully you'll make the right decision
And dont go through with the Knife incision
But it's hard to make the right move
When you in high school
How you have to work all day and take night school
Hopping off da bus when the rain is pouring
What you want morning sickness or the sickness of mourning

[Chorus]
I'll Always Be a part of you
Trust Your Soul Know it's always true
If I Could Talk I'd Say To You
CAN I LIVE
CAN I LIVE
I'll Always Be a part of you
Trust Your Soul Know it's always true
If I Could Talk I'd Say To You
CAN I LIVE
CAN I LIVE

[Verse 2]
I am a child of the king
Ain't no need to go fear me
And I see the flowing tears so know that you hear me
When I move in your womb that's me being scary
Cause who knows what my future holds
Yo the truth be told you ain't told a soul
Yo you ain't even showing I'm just 2 months old
Through your clothes try to hide me deny me
Went up 3 sizes
Your pride got you lying saying ain't nothing but a migraine
It ain't surprising you not trying to be in Wic food lines
Your friends will look at you funny but look at you mommy
That's a life inside you look at your tummy
What is becoming ma I am Oprah bound
You can tell he's a star from the Ultrasound
Our Sprits Connected Doors Open Now
Nothing But Love And Respect Thanks For Holding Me Down She Let Me Live...

[Chorus]
I'll Always Be a part of you
Trust Your Soul Know it's always true
If I Could Talk I'd Say To You
CAN I LIVE
CAN I LIVE
I'll Always Be apart of you
Trust Your Soul Know it's always true
If I Could Talk I'd Say To You
CAN I LIVE
CAN I LIVE
[Repeat 2]

[Nick Talking]

It's uplifting foreal yall
I ain't passing no judgement
Ain't making no decisions
I am just telling ya'll my story
I love life
I love my mother for giving me life
We all need to appreciate life
A strong woman that had to make a sacrifice
Thanks for listening
Thanks for listening
Mama thanks for listening
