According to reports, Washington, DC's Clown Prince of Crackiness and current Ward 8 Councilman Marion Barry was robbed at gunpoint last night by "some youths."
Barry had apparently been approached by a group of kids who offered to help the councilman carry his groceries into his apartment. Barry offered them some money for their trouble, but the youths, apparently feeling that Barry had not offered them a significant enough opportunity, returned to his stoop and held up Hizzoner, making off with his wallet and credit cards.
Despite the fact that it was a "traumatic experience" for Barry, this is the man who once insisted, "If you take out the killings, Washington actually has a very very low crime rate." First, given Barry's current level of indebtedness, those credit cards are probably maxed out and their use will probably only bring a swarm of heavily armed creditors swooping down on anyone who tries to use them. But mainly, the robbers didn't get their hands on Barry's gasification machine, so the joke is clearly on them. A Barry first.— DCEIVER
