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? :-)
Another Dem profile in courage. She has to bring reinforcements. And the best she could do is Glover? Snort. Where's Pelosi, who said what McKinney did was no big deal? Hiding under a desk somewhere with Russ Feingeld?
It was the new Don King hairdo that caused the probem.
What a gift. Pelosi had both fingers crossed yesterday saying the thing was no big deal.
Like clockwork, she had to go racial.
Everybody know where this is going?
Time for the popcorn and comfy couches as she gives away what the D's seemed to gain from the Dubai Ports Deal.
Security is important, but exceptions need to be made for black congresspeople.
Wow. Defeat from the jaws of victory.
Who slapped who again?
I can't believe Howard University wants to be associated with this.
This is the gift that keeps on giving. LOL...
Another victim who doesn't obey the rules. Wear the ID you are supposed to and if you are harrassed obeying the rules that is a headline story. As we're told when we're going through airport security, it's for your own good..!
Just checked the few threads at DUh about this. The mental patients are almost to the man defending her ONLY because she is a black liberal. Its so gross how racist these people are. If a white Republican man or woman did it, they would make it worse than the Holocuast. Its scary that people like this vote.
Another great example of an anti-truth, anti-freedom, anti-life Democratic Crime Syndicate member.
John Gibson just said she's about to do a news conference.
Of course. What else could they be?
She is what I will not type.

(It's good to be in the driver's seat)
Spoken like a true 'quota-filler' from day one. I wonder if she's sued her way to the top like a lot of people who otherwise couldn't make it on merit.
Really? What percentage of entrances to Congress of black Congressmen end up in altercations with the police?
Press conference live on Fox News.
CNN couldn't bother.
Hey dude, that link rocks! We're watching the room before it goes on television. Get to hear all the pre-press conference chatter.
Glad to oblige.
McKinney/Naomi Campbell '08
Somebody fill me in. I've been busy and don't have a TV. Did she get arrested?
Yeah, but at least it's Hugh Hewitt that is being interviewed on CNN....
Sounds like she's begging to be charged. It would be interesting to see the security video of this incident.
Danny Glover and Harry Belfonte to be at the presser.
He just announced that Harry Belafonte and Danny Glover are in the house!
