Why Is The FBI Cocaining Marion Barry To Death?

crack killsIf former DC Mayor and current DC Councilman Marion Barry had ever bothered to watch Bob Roberts, he would know not to do crack, it’s a ghetto drug. Sadly, he did not, and now comes his revelation that when the FBI gave him that crack to smoke, it had more on its mind than just netting itself a mayor. Some (Barry) might call it muuuurrrderrrrr! How did the FBI try to kill you, Marion Barry?

“The FBI had a mind to entrap me, also the FBI tried to kill me by having some substance that wasn’t proven to be crack,” Barry told U.S. News in a phone interview.

“They had an EMT on the spot, which is not only unusual but rare in history of the FBI,” Barry noted as he offered evidence to support his claim that the FBI attempted to kill him. “Why would they have an EMT on the scene if they weren’t trying?”

Why would they have someone trained to save lives on the scene if they did not want Marion Barry dead! Why indeed!

Fine, Mr. Killjoy FBI guy:

“The purpose of the medical standby was to provide potential medical attention to Marion Barry should his criminal activities require it. We had to let him inhale because that was one of the charges.”

As if that makes any sense at all.
