    US Capitol LEO assaulted by Congresswomen

    HOR McKinney Allegedly Punches Cop
    Web Editor: Michael King
    Last Modified: 3/29/2006 8:36:27 PM


    According to sources on Capitol Hill, U.S. Representative Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) punched a Capitol police officer on Wednesday afternoon after he mistakenly pursued her for failing to pass through a metal detector.

    Members of Congress are not required to pass through metal detectors.

    Sources say that the officer was at a position in the Longworth House Office Building, and neither recognized McKinney, nor saw her credentials as she went around the metal detector.

    The officer called out, “Ma’am, Ma’am,” and walked after her in an attempt to stop her. When he caught McKinney, he grabbed her by the arm.

    Witnesses say McKinney pulled her arm away, and with her cell phone in hand, punched the officer in the chest.

    McKinney’s office has not responded to requests for comment.

    According to the Drudge Report, the entire incident is on tape.

    Drudge continues, "The cop is pressing charges, and the USCP (United States Capitol Police) are waiting until Congress adjurns to arrest her, a source claims."

    No charges have been filed. Capitol Police spokeswoman Sgt. Kimberly Schneider says that senior officials have been made aware of the incident and are investigating.

    A statement attributed to McKinney has been released on the Internet, where she allegedly claims to have been harassed by Capitol Hill Police.

    The statement's writer says that she has been harassed by white police officers she says do not recognize her due to her recently changed hairstyle.

    "Do I have to contact the police every time I change my hairstyle? How do we account for the fact that when I wore my braids every day for 11 years, I still faced this problem, primarily from certain white police officers," the statement says.

    The writer details the incident, saying, "I was rushing to my meeting when a white police officer yelled to me. He approached me, bodyblocked me, physically touching me. I used my arm to get him off of me. I told him not to touch me several times. He asked for my ID and I showed it to him. He then let me go and I proceeded to my meeting and I assume that the Police Officer resumed his duties. I have counseled with the Sergeant-at-Arms and Acting Assistant Chief Thompson several times before and counseled with them again on today's incident. I offered also to counsel with the offending police officer."

    Um, maybe if she didn't ASSUME every one knows who she is she wouldn't have a problem. I hate elitism. I'm sorry but there are so many freakin Rep's and Senators I'm sure they can't completely keep track of them all the damn time. They're not there all day every day.

    I'm sure if it was a random fake pregnant woman with a bomb under her coat she would be screaming because the officer didn't body block the offender from going further than they already had. Some PEOPLE! Urgh!

    I'm sure a "counseling" session with the Rep and the "offending white officer" would be very productive. She seems like a very open-minded, un-biased, understanding person.

    Figures she's try to bring race into it. Now if a white woman had been stopped by a black officer and she brought up his race in her defense.... well, you can imagine.

    And of course, I'm sure she has absolutely NO racial prejudices. (Made sure she referred to the "white Officer".)

    It always has to be about race; heaven forbid that people mistake this incident for a diligent cop doing his job.

    So the police officer saw somebody rush past security that he didn't recognize? And he stopped her? This isn't the America I grew up in.

    Is this the same fat bitch that created an incident on the airplane last month because they told her she needed two seats?

    Just asking because both turned out to be race issues instead of not showing ID or overflowing the seats

    I run into the same thing, ask a white doctor for ID and get ID, ask a black doctor for ID and get the race card and a bunch of hassle. When a black officer shows up, they get fully cooperative with him and show ID. The whole problem revolves around me trying to keep the black folks down and not on requesting ID from an unrecognized person entering into a federal building.
    Insert witty comment and disclaimer here.

    I thought you couldn't comment on it

    But Cap-Stun sounds good - Anything that generates pain.
