I wish I lived in DeKalb!

Cynthia McKinney has gone too far. This time she is not only incompetent but has struck a police officer and acted as though it’s HIS fault. I wish I lived in DeKalb so I could vote against her! I just saw her on the news at a bogus press conference where supporters cheered her on and told her story for her. I have lost all respect for Sen. Gloria Butler and think even less of Rev. Joseph Lowry. Why do people kiss up to her? Why does she act like an idiot and the NAACP runs to back her up? She gets nothing done in Congress. Has anyone else seen her resolution (HR 4210) to investigate the death of Tupac Shakur? Yea, that’s the business of Atlanta. What a waste of money and resources. If you have seen her recent press conferences you can see the how manufactured they look and how the new threats against the officer that she struck are outrageous! Her lawyer contends that she should have been recognized and because HE did not recognize her and prevented her from entering the building, he deserves to be slapped with a lawsuit! Unbelievable! On of the McKinney supporters said, “I hope his past is impeccable, we’re going to investigate him.” This is a complete farce and hopefully not representative of how the NAACP operates. Rainbow/PUSH, NAACP, Tyrone Brooks, McKinney supporters, you should be ashamed! Striking a police officer is a crime and I hope she gets arrested. If she does, her fans will like her more. I couldn’t dislike her and her supporters more.

Have you seen our glamour gal in the news today? Those "racist" interviewers expressed outright frustration over her obscurantism.

A great exchange:

Soledad O'brian: Can you tell me what actually happened?

Cynthia: What actually happened is that 250 black officers have filed claims against capitol Police.

Yes, Cynthia. And what also happened is that Caesar crossed the Rubicon, Judas betrayed Jesus and Lincoln was assassinated. But DID YOU HIT A COP WITH YOUR CELL PHONE?

You should be glad you...don't live in Dekalb...who do you think voted her into office? There is a whole group of people living there just like her! That is why I moved from there...but I think I should have kept going out of STATE! I blame the politicians here for pandering to her, and people like her. You have made your own problems by not standing up for yourselves. What she is claiming is sick, and if they don't put her in jail for what she did, I think I'll keep going to New Zealand!
Now just think back to 911..Part of the reason that happened was people like her screaming about their civil rights being violated to the point the gov was almost handicapped trying to investigate the 'would be highjackers'. Now her stupid ass is too lazy to display her pin that shows she's a senator or whatever she is. Wouldn't it have been cute if someone was trying to look like someone on capital hill and bullied their way through...and the whole place was in ashes today...then what would we have had to say about the cop? The man was doing his job and as a good citizen she should have co operated. This 'don't you know who I am!' is for the birds! You either co operate, or you don't, people like her ...ARE THE PROBLEM! Most good people would have co operated..but she wants to feel important. I retired from the airlines and I can tell you...we didn't care who you were...if you tried to screw security...you didn't fly...if she did that at the airport she would still be sitting there and we have a ...LOT.. of poiticians fly every day..it is the same for everyone! She is BS..down to her toes!

Serial sexual offenders get off scot free.

Why's that? One is the son of the Senate President (a Republican).

Submitted by oldsimon on Wed, 04/05/2006 - 12:12pm.

If you are speaking of the President of the State Senate, it is Mark Taylor, a well known DEMOCRAT who is also running for Governor. He is Lt. Gov now. Get your facts straight before making goofy comments. Are you saying his son is a sexual offender? Sounds like defamation to me. You ARE a scary liberal. But, then, most liberals are.

Submitted by dkinser on Wed, 04/05/2006 - 12:45pm.

Actually the article this person was referring to is about the Arizona Senate.

Our illustrious Democrat Lt. Governor is the father of the boy that killed his best friend in a car accident while driving intoxicated. His son has also previously been charged with drug trafficking, but those charges were dropped.

I take it this person, scaryliberal, has a vendetta against Republican's; but Democrats are not immune to scandal. I seem to remember when a certain Democrat, who happened to be the President of the United States; defiled the office by lying under oath about some sexual misconduct.

They conveniently forget issues such as that. Hmmmm

Nothing in the article says they are getting of scot free.

Where are you on the liberal states and judges letting pedophiles off with probation and such?

Sex offenders need to go down with hard punishment. All of them.

Now, what has this got to do with McKinney? How does it justify her getting off?

She has a history of doing such things. She needs to go down.

I am an independent. I dislike both parties for different reasons.

I am conservative. And I see liberals in both parties. Plus, I am not pro-business over the working guy.

Government is a mess.

By the way. Kennedy got away with murder.

Someone here had mentioned the incident with McKinney a couple of days ago. I just read the CNN story for the first time this morning:


She is considering civil action against the officer for racial profiling and for "touching her innapropriately." That has to be it: an on duty cop in a public building was so overtaken by her charm and natural good looks that he couldn't resist the urge to "cop" a feel right there and then. Must have been that new haircut. Of course, he only did it because of her race. Hmmmm.... McKinney. That's Scottish isn't it? Does she speak with a brogue?

I would be tempted to write a satirical news story about her, but she is already so far out there that it would wind up being too close to the reality. The woman is a walking satire.

While I am no fan of Cynthia McKinney, I view her complaint of inappropriate touching by a police officer with some sympathy.

Watching real cops in real-life scenes on TV, I notice how many of them seem to like to lay their hands on prisoners, pretending in some cases to lead them to where they're supposed to walk. Many of us hate having people lay their hands on us for any reason, as we respond readily to clear verbal instructions and are not merchandise.

I notice how Fulton County DA Paul Howard is now accused of having caused a (female) deputy to have suffered a dislocated shoulder when she was trying to handcuff him. This man is a distinguished lawyer and the top law enforcement person in Fulton, so I don't see how he should be treated like scum by deputies eager to lay a hand on him.

Keep your hands to yourself is my message to all law enforcement officers. You have a voice and know about voice command. Use it first. (Some of these cases end up before juries, and if I am ever on a jury with a case like this, I won't necessarily side with the cops. I'll look at all the facts, knowing that the cops are capable of using poor judgment in their handling of people.)

I think a couple of things need to be pointed out in response to your post eyinvest:

A) Police don't put their hands on everyone, just those who believe they can circumvent the law (ie breaking the law) or those like McKinney who really believe they are above the law.

B) If you are looking to McKinney presenting the REAL facts of what happened that day you will be sadly misled. McKinney has a LONG history of misrepresenting the facts or truth about any event she is a part of.

There is a tape of the events of that day and because of security reasons, we probably will never see it. However their were others who saw what happened and that will eventually come out. I challenge McKinney to come up with even 1 person who was present that day who would be able to give any credibility to her "version" of what happened. McKinney's record speaks for itself, her morals, her ethics and her personal life; they all bespeak of someone who rides the gravy wagon of racism to get what she wants no matter who she has to beat down to get it. Majet (I hope I spelled that right) should have kept her elected position after defeating McKinney because she at least did work of importance while in office.

Right on wildfire !!! You said it so well, and with honesty. McKinney is accustomed to making up the story as she goes along to suit her purposes. She is a pompous a**, and actually thinks she is much more important than she really is. My opinion...she is a disgrace to her position. I can only assume that ignorance of the voters are the only reason she holds office. Hopefully, they will wake up one day...real soon. Lawdawga

I might consider this explanation but for two things: 1. The news story includes the officer's claim that she was unresponsive to verbal commands and just kept going into a secure area. What else could he have done? 2. The cops' side of the story just fits this character's arrogant style.

She whipped out every card she has. It's because I'm black. It's because I'm female. It's because the officer doesn't like my politics.

No, Cynthia. It's because diva that you perceive yourself to be, you arrogantly assumed that you need not obey the law as your constituents must. And it's because you were miffed by the fact that the officer initially failed to recognize you for the celebrity that you are in your own estimation.

As for what else he could have done? I would have loved to see him use a Taser on her. Hands free.

This woman has and always will be a trouble maker who would sell our contry out in a blink of an eye. She has proven in the past and even now that she is a racist and is not afraid to use the race card to further her agenda. I've always been told that you are judged by the fruit you bare and company you keep. McKinney will one day go too far and it will have it's own sweet revenge. Who knows, maybe this incident will be the straw that breaks the camels back! In any case anyone who believes that McKinney has any sense of decency or goodwill is a blind fool.

Cynthia and her dad, Billy McKinney, have gotten by with a lot of misconduct through the years. Remember when they invaded the polls in DeKalb and caused a large ruckus, even filming voters which is certainly against the law. They broke the law by being inside the polls, too. But, our womderful Secretary of State, Cathy Cox -Democrat, swept it under the rug. They both should have gone to jail. We even had a similar incident here in Fayette County with Roberta Abdul-Salaam who did the same thing and the Secretary of State has done nothing about her, too.

Billy McKinney pulled his switchblade on another legislator at the Capitol a few years ago. The apple doesn't fall from the tree.

I really like the expression "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree," and its cousin "the fruit of the poisonous tree."

The other legislator involved in the switchblade incident was our own ineffable (and humorless) Dan Lakly, who had gone out of the House chambers for a smoke. He and Billy McKinney had words, and McKinney (who knew the irrational fear that some white folks have of black people) got his pocket knife out to scrape his nails and scare Lakly a little bit. Lakly took the bait big time, and ended up filing an application for an arrest warrant against McKinney. The matter went to Magistrate Court, in Fulton County, and the judge, after hearing Lakly's testimony and considering the evidence, dismissed the charge. That was the end of it.

What did McKinney and Lakly have words about?, you wonder. As best as I recall, Lakly voted to have a landfill in McKinney's district, and needless to say McKinney didn't want people dumping their garbage where he lived. Who can blame him? (Danny is not exactly sensitive to other people's feelings.)

Cynthia, of course, does not carry a switchblade as her weapon of choice is a cell phone. (I wonder if she cleans her nails with it, too?) Smiling
