Report: McKinney struck officer with 'closed fist'
AJC.COM/METRO ^ | april 109 2006 | BOB KEMPER

The official police report on Rep. Cynthia McKinney's clash with a Capitol Hill police officer three weeks ago says the DeKalb County congresswoman struck the officer "in his chest with (a) closed fist."

The "event report" — obtained Tuesday by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution — describes the altercation as an assault on a police officer. The officer involved in the incident, identified as Paul McKenna, filed the report with his supervisors immediately after the incident occurred at 8:55 a.m. March 29.

The report for the first time provides specific details of what happened when McKenna tried to stop McKinney from going around a security checkpoint at a House office building.

Time to hold her accountable!

They have video & direct witnesses to this assault....and she's still free as a bird.

These two Duke students have no witnesses to the alleged incident, and no DNA evidence, but they just had to pay a 400,000 bail bond!

Uneven playing field here!!

What? All she was doing was making the "Black Power" sign, an expression of her "freedom of expression". It's not her fault that WonderBread Dudley Do Right got in the way of that.

Is striking a law enforcement officer a felony?

I bet she does not get so much as a reprimand.

I'm trying to imagine a white Republican punching that guy in the chest for not being recognized and not being imprisoned and forced to resign.

Can't imagine it.

As opposed to an OPEN-handed fist? A fist is, by definition, closed.

You're right, no Republican could get away with such outrageous misconduct at the US Capitol (or anywhere else), and the MSM would have quickly lynched any R. in such a case. The double-standards and hypocrisy of the MSM and the Demagogues continue to stagger and nauseate me.
