I think I maybe came in my pants a little while reading this story.
An Atlanta City Council member and mayoral candidate who voted to defund the local police department, had his car stolen by a group of youths this week, Fox5 Atlanta reported.
Antonio Brown suggested that “generational poverty” was the root cause of the crime, and lamented that the kids should have been in school.
The Democrat is currently under indictment on charges of wire fraud, mail fraud, bank fraud involving the purchase of a Mercedes C300, as well as a Range Rover.
Brown told Fox5 that four boys, ages 7 to 11-years-old, jumped into his white Mercedes while he was standing outside of it, talking to Ben Norman, another community leader.
“We tried to go there and maybe try to get the kid out of the car. So, I’m like, what do you do to a kid, right?” said Norman. “He had already starting figuring out…I mean they had plans, they knew what they were going to do. He hit the gas and he pulled out, peeled out, and took off.”
“One kid was in the driver’s seat,” Brown told the outlet. “Ben attempted to open the door to get him out of the car. He fought with Ben. I then engaged and tried to get him out of the car. The three other kids were trying to figure out how to get in the car or stay out of the car. He started to hit on the gas. Ben let go.”
“As he started to speed up, and I knew that if I had not let go, I knew I probably could have killed myself because he was going so fast, I would have started to tumble,” he added. “And I would have hurt him.”
Police said they found his car a few hours later, but did not say if any arrests were made. Brown said he filed a report with the Atlanta Police Department, but that he didn’t want to press charges, according to the report.
Another report I saw earlier today said that the dipshit was dragged a full block before letting go, which I found disappointing. I mean, come on, didn’t any of these carjacker thugs-in-training have the gumption to get a firm grip on Brown’s arm and prolong the enjoyment by dragging him for a half-mile or so? Guess not. But the rich, buttery goodness doesn’t stop there, oh no.
The effects of his efforts to hamper law enforcement are being felt all across the city. Brown experienced some of it first hand as he was forced to wait on hold for five minutes before speaking to an operator. Once his report was filed, he had to wait another 45 minutes for police to arrive.
Any bets on whether the po-po were well aware of Brown’s identity—it isn’t any great imaginative leap to assume the asshole did what these Superior Beings always do and indignantly hectored the 911 operator with a lot of “Do you know who I am?” obnoxiousness—and slow-walked their response?
