Have to agree with the guy #18 who says this seems to be a PR stunt.
Fresh off the Obama train,this guy is trying to get the media to be there with cameras when he steps back into his mediocre acting spotlight.
As for these so called ranting racists here, enough already! the shyte is boring. These sites are for BS'ing, not for you to constantly complain about some negro that got his Harvard degree and became President before you did.

"Doesn't he work for Obama? If so, then I am glad this happened. If not, then I am sad."

Well if that's the case Me and my brothers work for Prez Obama. You know we train, and deploy protecting the freedoms you enjoy. I guess if anyone took you at full value we deserve to be robbed also or maybe killed if that would suit you. God bless America and all my brothers and sisters protecting this nation.

How is that whole gun ban working out for you in D.C.? The cops have a saying. It is better to be judged by 12 than carried by six.

That is not possible. He is not telling the truth. DC is a GUN FREE ZONE.

Kal Penn was Obama's boytoy... thrown out of the Whitehouse and out of a job becuase Barry's turned his affections to "bodyman" Reggie Love. The robbery was a message to keep quite.

@ Khalid AlMansour (haha), no truer words have been said. One of these days someone will have unrefutible proof. Not that that will do any good. The media will not acknowledge it and the psyco liberals will say that only proves he's human.
