Armored car robbed in G'town

Paul Duggan

Four masked men robbed an armored car outside a Georgetown bank Thursday and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash, D.C. police said.

The armed holdup occurred shortly before 2:30 p.m. in front of a BB&T Bank branch at Wisconsin and O streets NW, police said. They said the robbers fled in a black Dodge Magnum with shiny wheel covers and tinted windows.

No one was injured, police said.

We can confirm that the robbers were not Asian, Caucasian nor Hispanic due to the politically correct media's refusal to provide suspect descriptions.

They must've gone to see the movie "Takers" this past weekend. Thank God that no one was hurt.

Maybe they really mean 2:30AM. 2:30PM? No way, they'd still be there stuck in traffic.

@thecanimalshusband, did you not read the part where they described them as "four masked men", or do you believe witnesses should assume all robbers are black because you do?

@CrimeRiddenDC, what a way to stand up for your race! I can only assume you are.. nevermind ;)

Which part of "masked" and "tinted windows" was unclear to you?

If these guys wore suits and left in a Cadillac with boring wheels and sensible windows, this would be an article about bankers getting a bailout.

How the hell do you get away in traffic in Georgetown at 2:30 p.m. on a rainy day? They must have switched cars around the corner!

We can confirm that there are some people with nothing better to do with their time than to speculate on the demographic and racial characteristics of the robbers in order to validate their paranoid and racist stereotypical outlook on society.

I'm glad they didn't see the movie "Heat." If they had a robber like Waynegrow, it would've been trouble because he "just had to get it on."

@vztownes! You are so right! Why is race even an issue here!?! Come on guys! It does not matter what race you are, we are ALL EQUAL in the eyes of God. Glad no one got hurt.

Special_one40..you have the right name "special"..to write something so ignorant. Go put your helmet on and wait on the yellow bus you moron. You all are who are talking about race. Keep your ignorance to yourself!

Why does the media need to tell the race of perps? So you will know which group to insult racially. I am glad they dont feed into the same silly race baiting that bloggers like you delight in. You are actually angry that the story did not say they were black or hispanic or white. If you want to be racist join the KKK if you havent already. Dont expect the Washington post to assist your on your agenda. I am glad they are politically correct. The world could use a little political correctness these days. Lord knows we have enough politically incorrect clowns out here.

White people are really hung up on black people. Its like they sit on web blogs all day keeping score racially. When will whites stop obsessing over black people? Is that a guilt thing or something? Its as if whites are trying to justify their history of mistreatment towards blacks by keeping score of anything negative they can find about black people. Why do whites have a race complex on these blogs? If the criminal is white they ignore posting then they read the next article to see if the criminal is black and thats the one they post on. Its as if whites need to prove to themselves that they are better than black people. But in the end who cares?

You are envious of black people and obsess over them all the time. Its pathetic to see whites, especially white men obsessing over black people like insecure bullies who need someone to pick on to avoid looking at themselves and their own shortcomings. It must be difficult to see black people through your eyes. They constantly make you feel insecure.

I guess when they are masked men its the job of the media to speculate how they may look or be accused of being to politically correct. What is scary is that there are members of law enforcement who think just like you.

When it's all said an done, the robbers had help. It's was an inside job!

I don't believe this story. There is NO WAY these crooks got out of GTown traffic in the middle of a rainy day.

Sensible people should learn to ignore the idiots that post the obvious racist comments. They do it to get attention. Many were not hugged as youngster and are still longing for someone to care. If you ignore and not let them bait you, eventually they will migrate to FOX News.

Right, there were never any robberies prior to Obama coming in to office. You are an idiot.

Read cnn's justice section for a week. You'll see that most criminals in America are white.
