This Way, She Can Report Herself...

McKinney’s New Cause: Police Brutality
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Former Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, who gained national renown as the African American woman who hit a white Capitol Hill cop, has found a new cause: Leading “a crusade against police brutality in the African American Community.”

No one can dispute that the cause is a serious one. The 5-day national protest, dubbed “Cease Fire: Stop Police Brutality,” begins Nov. 21, the anniversary of last year’s killing of 92-year-old Kathryn Johnson by Atlanta police. But we just can’t resist the twist of an accused cop-hitter leading the charge against cops hitting.

The officer involved in the altercation in April 2006 tried to stop McKinney, a Dekalb Democrat, from going around a security checkpoint because he did not recognize her as a member of Congress. McKinney said he did it because she is “a female black congresswoman.”

The uproar was immediate within the Capitol and around the country and while a grand jury decided not to indict McKinney for hitting a police officer, the incident cost her her congressional seat for a second time in 2006.

McKinney is now a Green Party candidate for president.


"No one can dispute that the cause is a serious one." WHY can't I dispute that the cause is a serious one? I see much more black-on-black crime--and serious acting-out from black people like McKinney herself--than I ever have true white-cop on black-blameless-perp.

Before the Atlanta J-C can so blithely make a claim like that myth which has infested our society and is thus taken as a given, it needs to back it up with objective statistics. (And while we're getting those stats, let's all remember cops are Hispanic, Asian, AND black, too.)

This malignat, viciously racist woman is the epitome of all she claims to be foghting against. If this stupid woman had any concern for the "African American community she would be calling attention and outrage to the holocaust of black on bklack crime and murder. J'Mac.

How about a crusade against African Americans who don't respect police officers!

J'Mac, you are right. McKinney is not really concerned about inproving the lives of blacks.

Cynthia McKinney for president...president of what? I wouldn't vote for her, not because she is black, not because she is a woman...but because she is a nasty, foul-mouthed, mean-spirited, venomous person.
