Marion Barry Arrested

The best thing I like about this country is no matter how big or small you are, if you are in public and create a nuisance, you can readily be arrested.

This is unlike a lot of countries in the world where people of power, especially those in politics, are head and shoulders above regular folks when it comes to law enforcement.

The example I would like to quote to reinforce my case is that of Marion Berry. Marion is a D.C council member and he was arrested recently for stalking a women. The women was driving a car and Marion Berry, according to preliminary details made public, was tailing her in his car.

The woman got annoyed with this and reported the incident to a trooper who stopped Marion, interviewed him, and then booked him on charges of stalking.

The fact that law is not only paramount for all, but is seen to be paramount with such examples makes it very good. The perception is sometimes more or less equally important than the reality.

If you recall some time back there was a senator who was arrested for soliciting a cop in a public restroom. I am not sure what are Marion Berry’s political inclinations but the fact of the matter is, bad apples exists in both sides of the American political spectrum.

What do you think of this incident? If you would like to add your thoughts and opinions on this matter, use the form below.

      This is ludicrous! Anyone can travel the same way, for goodness sake! It a shame now that you cant even travel with in city, without somebody thinking that you are staking. Since this lady thinks, that every car is following her, well she should use public transportation or don’t travel at all.

      If he was looking in her window, and physically had some type of contact with her, I can see the charge, but no injury, as done to her, and she makes this “angry outburst” over nothing. This would not hold in court. Trying to set him up again, for what? Money.
      Be real. Dumbnut!!!

      The “lady” in question is a former girlfriend. He did not just happen to be driving down the street. He was tailing her. He is a crack-head!

      • Ella B. says:

        Dear Johnny Cakes,

        You seem to be very angry and judgmental. How do you know what really was going on? Were you there? And as far as your “Crack-Head statement, why don’t you tell us what your drug of choice is!

    4. Msmensa says:

      Pleeze! Women can tell the difference between being stalked and coincidently being followed. Being stalked is a terrifying situation. The aggressor WANTS you to be terrified. It’s a CONTROL issue. How DARE you try to break up with HIM! The entire time you’re driving, you fear a bullet’s going to fly into your head. The writers above who find the charge ludicrous have never been involved with one of these arrogant nutcases. The victim doesn’t want money…she wants this dangerous man out-of-her-life!

      • Ella B. says:

        Dear Msmensa ,

        We can not judge everyone by our own experiences. I really hope that you are getting the help you need. Because you can not hate the world for your trauma. Everyones cases are not the same and sometimes we do not know all the facts.

    5. Ella B. says:

      It is always so easy to judge people as if we are so perfect. The truth be told the only people who really know what and why is the female and Marion. Everyone else is just giving their oppinions. We all need to check ourselves before we start judging and name calling. When we find the ourselves focussing on other people we should really check our motives. It is usually our simularity in the person that we focus on and find ourselves the most upset about.

      He’s a lot like his former brother-in-law, the Rev/Mayor Thomas Masters of Riviera Beach, Florida. His former, maybe current wife, Cora Masters Berry, is controversial, too. These folks may have done a few good things in their lives but their character overshadows it. Rev. Thomas Masters, Riviera Beach was tried and convicted of child molestation. The conviction was overturned due to a technicality and the church insurance company settled for $600,000 rather than go back to court…What does that tell you about him?…To top that off, the citizens of Riviera Beach elected him mayor, albeit by a narrow margin, for a second term…What does that tell you about half of the residents of Riviera Beach?

      Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
