    I think the officer had a duty to stop her and find out who she was. Weather or not he should have known who she was, he didn't. If he hadn't have stopped her, and she wasn't a congress person and she then went into the building and shot someone, people would be asking why he didn't do his job and stop her. It's a no win situation for this guy. He's a racist if he stops her, he's not doing his job if he doesn't.

    I agree with Beltman 100% on this.

    I think all of the racist talk is getting to be a little far-reaching.... like the NAACP needs something to rally around, and they're making a mountain out of a molehill.

    She's been talking about "inappropriate touching" by the officer too; it was brought up Friday at the rally I saw on C-SPAN. I guess the video of the altercation will show the truth.

    I read she has a history of these types of things. Accusing people of racism when something didn't go her way.

    I think that's what the right want you to think. I honestly haven't looked too deeply into the PTB slandering someone who's helped the movement. Everyone in D.C. has skeletons in the closet. They wouldn't be human not to.

    Capital Hill aint no public park, its where our nations leaders are. So if a guard tells you to stop you stop or else things are bound to happen. If anything the guard was too easy on her because what if she had a bomb on her, she would have been in range to take people out.

    And it's cheap of her to play the race card like she's doing.


    And on a side note: I didn't know she got her job back. Good for her.

    How could you call it "slander" when there's a tape of it? It's not exactly "he-said-she-said". Of course, the right's gonna rag on it, but since when can anyone do anything without their opposition jumping on it?

    Arrest Warrant Sought for Rep. McKinney

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060403/...kinney_scuffle

    By LAURIE KELLMAN, Associated Press Writer 13 minutes ago

    WASHINGTON - U.S. Capitol Police on Monday sought an arrest warrant for Rep. Cynthia McKinney after she tangled with a uniformed officer last week. A spokesman for U.S. Attorney Kenneth L. Wainstein said he was reviewing the merits of the case.

    "We are working with Capitol Hill police to fully understand and appreciate the incident," principal assistant U.S. Attorney Channing Phillips told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.

    Neither Phillips nor the police department would say what charge was being sought against the six-term Democrat or when any warrant for her arrest might be issued.

    In a statement, Capitol Police said it "has referred its investigative findings to the U.S. attorney." Filing such an affidavit is the first step in obtaining an arrest warrant. Only if Wainstein approves the affidavit can Capitol Police officials ask a judge to issue the arrest warrant.

    McKinney spokesman Coz Carson acknowledged the investigation.

    "We're aware that the wheels are turning in Washington," Carson said. "We have no control over what they decide to do. We will make the appropriate statement and take the appropriate action once we know where they're going."

    For her part, McKinney said she expects to represent her suburban Atlanta district for many years.

    "Rest assured, I am doing the work they sent me to Washington to do. Nothing is going to keep me away from my responsibilities," McKinney told a crowd of supporters in Atlanta on Monday.

    McKinney, 51, scuffled with a police officer on March 29 when she entered a House office building without her identifying lapel pin and did not stop when asked. Several police sources said the officer, who was not identified, asked her three times to stop. When she kept going, he placed a hand somewhere on her and she hit him, according to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

    McKinney issued a statement of regret for the incident but no apology. She and her lawyers have repeatedly declared that she was a victim of inappropriate touching and racism and said they were considering pursuing civil action against the officer.

    Asked Monday why she didn't stop as the uniformed officer asked, McKinney framed the matter in terms of race.

    "The issue is racial profiling," she said on CNN's "The Situation Room."

    She and her attorneys have refused to say whether she hit the officer as alleged. James Myart Jr., her lawyer, suggested on the same program that McKinney acted in self-defense.

    Black clergy and lawmakers came to the defense of the firebrand congresswoman on Monday. McKinney smiled as her supporters heaped praise on her leadership and her new look — her trademark cornrows replaced earlier this year by a curly brown afro.

    Her supporters tried to minimize the incident — which they called political, not criminal — but they also suggested it was an example of racial profiling. They called publicity surrounding the episode a distraction that is being used by "her enemies" to keep the congresswoman from performing her elected duties.

    The Rev. Reverend Darrell D. Elligan, president of Concerned Black Clergy, called McKinney competent, courageous and committed.

    "She has our support unconditionally," Elligan said. "She is not a threat to the security of our country."
