Wait a minute, how did the mugger get a gun?? Doesn't Washington DC have strict gun control laws??



I like it when liberals get mugged.

Walking around DC in the middle of the night? Was he suicidal? Or looking for a prostitute?

It is actually noble of him to take a pay-cut and work for the Obama administration. As for the gun-toting, tiny bulged, tea baggers on the board, I find it humorous to hear how many of you are frightened of walking around in Washington DC at 1:20 AM. Bars in DC are open until 4 AM so it's not that irregular to walk around at that time of hour. As for Penn, I'm sure he's ok. All of you right-wingers would be urinating yourselves just seeing a black person late at night. You guys are jokes hiding behind tough talk on the internet.

He is free to walk around whenever, where ever he likes. If he was also free to bear arms in DC, he might still have his stuff, too.

bars in DC are not open until 4AM, and definitely not open till 4AM on a weeknight. 130 is still a reasonable time to come home from a bar though.
