What a pity he was nabbed before the Coronation of the One, as I bet he had an invite.

Police say Washington has an extensive criminal history.

And will continue to add to it many, many times.
This is America after all, and the criminals are simply victims of society. - As taught in any College level Soc class.

If you google “Washington” and “Arrested” you get 850,000 pages of results.

I’m shocked to see the perp was a black man.
Who’d have thunk it.
I was betting a young Morman who hated fags and old folks.

One of DC’s unhanged villains. Beating and robbing an old fellow is a low act, even for a lowlife scroat.

If it wasn't for Bush, Cheney, and Rove Mr. Washington could have parlayed his 7th grade education into a career as a Community Organizer in the economic wasteland of Prince Georges County, or how about US Senator from the Peoples Republik of Maryland. Yeah! That's it.

NAH. Poor, oppressed Mr. Washington had very few other options than to drive 30 miles around the Beltway so he could ambush an old white guy after dark in the parking lot of a Church. Who's really the victim here?

There are still some parts of Southern P.G. County near Baden that are fit to live in.

I'm sorry, but what does this crime have to do with affirmative action? Rather, get career criminals off the streets and doing something productive, like digging holes or breaking rocks; discourage bastardy and encourage marriage; and make sure that there are jobs for people who don't like being in high school. That, and shoot more perps in the act.

You realize that includes most of congress, too.

What are the chances? That's exactly what was said to me at gunpoint when I was mugged in Philadelphia! Do the druggies have a playbook, like the Democrat media, for the entire East Coast?
