Skip to comments.McKinney: "In Congress While Black" (Lawyer sez she's a victim)(Abstract)
Posted on 03/31/2006 2:11:45 PM PST by mhking
Representative Cynthia McKinneys lawyer says that she is simply a victim of being in Congress while black.
McKinney planned a late-afternoon news conference in Washington to discuss the altercation she had with a Capitol police officer on Wednesday. Her lawyer, James W. Myart Jr. says that her problems with police are racial in nature.
Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, like thousands of average Americans across this country, is, too, a victim of the excessive use of force by law enforcement officials because of how she looks and the color of her skin, Myart said. Ms. McKinney is just a victim of being in Congress while black.
Can be said of all the DemonRATS!! Victims of GWB and the Bushies - Impeach, Impeach, I say Impeach!! /sarcasm
Anyone know why was this morning's presser was deep-sixed? Was this going to be the strategy all along, or were they going to try something else this morning and decided against it?
An embarrasment to humanity.
As comedian Ron White says, "You can't fix stupid"
Does her lawyer think the police are profiling black terrorists?
What's your take on this. I think she should be prosecuted and set as an example of how the self appointed ruling class is not above the law. I couldn't care what color the hag is, I want her charged. No one should be above the law.
These lefties are the dumbest shits in the world!
Being in Congress while being an idiot, is she going to skate next election?
So the lawyer comes out swinging. Hope this means an arrest is imminent.
Presser coming up at 5:30 WITH Danny Glover.
Well...that didn't take long.
Funny how other black members of Congress manage to avoid these scrapes.
McKinney is no victim. She's an embarrassment to Georgia's fine citizens, regardless of their ethnicity. McKinney should be indicted and prosecuted for attacking a police officer, just as any one of us would be. Let McKinney tell her race-baiting tale of woe to a judge and jury.
This evening(5:30), McKinney and radical actor Danny Glover will conduct a press conference at Howard University. Can anyone send us a link to video or audio of the press conference?

This is outrageously stupid its funny.
Did anyone not see this defense coming 5 hours ago?
It was plain as day what it was going to be.
Throw the female dog in jail, she's a disgrace to the institution she belittles with such charges.
"This thing won't quiet down...and I'm as busy as a one-armed paperhanger here in the newsroom..."
Busier than a one legged man in a butt kickin' contest
Busier than a one eyed dog in a smoke house...
Is that some kind of slur against one-armed paper hangers? :-)
