Marion Barry is a Victim

Marion Barry, the drug using corrupt former Mayor of DC, was arrested recently and he says he was racially profiled. Barry was on his way to a holiday party on Saturday when the police pulled him over. Seems that Barry’s driver’s license was suspended, a fact that Barry claims is incorrect and it was an administrative error. The police however, have a different story and say there was no error. Barry has decided that he needs to play his race card so he said that he was racially profiled.

Barry said the officers asked him for his license and registration and then said that his license was suspended.

Barry told NBC4 the suspension was a clerical mistake, and he accused the U.S. Park police of racial profiling.

Park Police said Barry’s license was in fact suspended, and that’s why he was arrested.

Barry was cuffed and taken to a park police station for processing.

Barry said the incident took several hours to work out and he was humiliated and severely inconvenienced. He said he wasn’t able to drive all weekend due to a mistake by the D.C. government. NBC4

So Barry was inconvenienced by the DC government, a government he helped to make more corrupt when he was in office. Isn’t that just too bad? I understand Marion Barry and he might actually have some valid points except for a few little problems in his past:
