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.

You know ........ I was thinking (seldom)......... if it weren't for dear Cynthia's recent unpleasant altercation with the D.C. police, here's betting her pudgy *ss would be down there in Durham with Jesse Jackasson making a stink about those nasty white/Duke Lacrosse players.

I bet you CAN imagine the difference in Media reporting, if McKinney was a Republican!
Remember how much fuss the idiot press made when Cheny told some senator to "flake" off?

"in his chest with (a) closed fist."

If I had done that to a federal police officer, I would be posting from a federal pen.

This woman has been treated with kid's gloves, to put it mildly.

OPEN-handed fist

A karate chop?

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

Open fist is a slap, a closed fist is a punch.

Who's saying there's video?

The cops. This happened at a security checkpoint, all of which are equipped with video cameras. In fact, there's probably not a public square inch of the Capitol that doesn't have a camera trained on it.

The Democrats have, since the 1960's made a SHOW at being for Civil Rights. It was the Republicans who made it happen.

Listen to Condi Rice's story of how her granddaddy was denied the right to vote by the Democrats, and the Republicans registered him, and he became a lifelong Republican as a result.

The Democrat party is replete with overt and covert racism, Jeremy, but that's not finally the point.

It is conservativism that sees people as Martin Luther King Jr desired that they be seen........not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Don't be fooled by the appearances of the left into thinking they care about African-American progress. They want just the opposite. They want life for black Americans to be a dead end.

Conservatives want you to be..........as the Army says..........ALL that you can be.
