Skip to comments.Grand Jury to Hear McKinney Case (tomorrow)
Posted on 04/05/2006 3:46:35 PM PDT by mhking
MSNBC reported late Wednesday afternoon that a grand jury would hear evidence against Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-4th Ga.) on Thursday.
No word is available on how soon a warrant may be issued against McKinney.
The Washington Post reports Capitol police want McKinney prosecuted on a misdemeanor charge of assaulting a police officer. The fourth district congresswoman has said she's a victim of racial profiling and insists she struck the officer after he touched her inappropriately.

A DC grand Jury?...Nothing will happen to her.
I'll fall off my chair if she was indicted.
I'll bet that her mug shot doesn't come off as good as Delay's.
Woould yoou liiike a glaaass of waater?
They're just trying to avoid responsibility. Give it to someone else to decide. Not my fault how it comes out.
If you hit a cop where I live, it's a felony.....If there's anything left of you to prosecute.
Nice little game of hot potatoe we've got going on here. The cops toss it to the DA, the DA throws it to a grand jury, the grand jury...?
This screams (if you'll pardon the phrase) whitewash.
They're afraid of the controversy, so they kick it to a DC Grand Jury, probably made up of 85% black women, and let them refuse to indict.
However, she's a baloney, sharp tongue and head cheese combo, so she's gonna get off scot free.
LOL. Yep, and you are right, she will get off, whereas you and I would not. Then again, we are not given to striking law officers doing their jobs.
I am surprised hitting a cop in a misdemeanor. Maybe she was just having a bad hair day.
From her pictures, it would appear that every day is a bad hair day.
Security should have tasered her... it looked like she was tasered from her picture with her hair like that.. hahaha
I can't imagine them actually indicting her, let alone punishing her. Perhaps they'll surprise me.
It really depends upon the prosecutor.
A DC jury will nominate her for sainthood.
Buckwheat needs to be thrown out of the house.
Unfortunately, I'm 99% sure you're right.
It is jury nulification and the playing of the race card to avoid personal responsibility.
Bingo! She certainly will be judged by a jury of her peers. LOL
The picture looks like he used a taser on her??
Pray for W and Our Freedom Fighters
The current law of the rights of elites.
You are right. They all look like her and are at about her same I.Q. level.
Like O.J., McKinney's next agenda will be to begin a quest to find the real perpetrator of the assault on the police officer.
I don't think there was any choice. If a DC grand jury indictes her, she can't say she was run over by de white folks.
"The fourth district congresswoman has said she's a victim of racial profiling and insists she struck the officer after he touched her inappropriately."
Officer says "slow down, I need to see your badge" but defendant walks on, ignoring officer.
Officer places hand on defendants shoulder and says "stop."
Defendant turns and strikes officer, and later concocts claim of racism and inappropriate touching, once defendant realizes the depth of the caca.
Definition of racism: "a tool to be used, when advantage seems possible. Excuse for one's behavior."
I hope you understand why I might be confused.
You mean, he wasn't double-gloved & face-masked?
You mean, he used his hand, instead of a billy club?
You mean, he only caught your arm, rather than doing a full take-down?
Well, maybe those can be arranged, if it will really make you happy, Sin-D.
Nah he's too busy playing golf and getting into trouble down here in ol' fla.
You get this weeks Buckwheat journalism award.
Exactly.....this ain't worth the effort. She'll wear a misdemeanor charge for smacking a LEO as a badge of honor and use it to campaign for re-election in that zoo she calls a district.
Felony assault is the norm for hitting a cop here too......drop the charge IMO unless congress will do something to remove her after a conviction .
Ain't woth the money to keep the lights on in the court that panders to such a shit'n shineola show she'll use for free face time to keep the hate alive !
Doom on that cunning runts stunts.....
IF Buckwheat gets off, then WHICH Democrat wil take the blame when a KILLER goes around the magnometer and KILLS Congressmen???? Wow......blood on their hands because the police will be AFRAID to stop anyone!! What if a killer looks like a Congressman and skates thru because the cops are afraid to ask for ID......Wow.
Agree.....I can find 2000 reasons to dislike, discriminate or distance myself from a person before I get to race, sex or age.....
She is a racist keep the hate alive POS that's costs this nation the ability to progress, prosper and perform as our republic should.
Doom on her and her handlers that keep her on the end of a rope like the circus freak she is.
Black conservative ping
If you want on (or off) of my black conservative ping list, please let me know via FREEPmail. (And no, you don't have to be black to be on the list!)
Extra warning: this is a high-volume ping list.
I like the way you think, sir.
a hopeful ping
How do you rate the odds of a DC grand jury indicting McKinney?
She's made enemies on both sides of the aisle -- notice that Democrats outside of her personal friends here in Georgia and the Congressional Black (Liberal) Caucus are noticably quiet on this one.
She's truly shot herself in the foot.
That said, If she is indicted I will be surprised. Every day we see stories about the privileged in our society getting off with a slap on the wrist while first time offenders are given the MAX.
Americans, of ALL races, should band together and take a stand to say the days of manipulating white guilt to deflect from one's own bad behavior is over.
She'll walk for sure
No wonder I have zero faith in government or our ability to be a self governing people anymore.
no matter how cynical I get, I can never keep up.
Then again, maybe a pig will fly.
