if in fact the following is true:

representative mckinney was NOT wearing her identification pin, an officer asked her THREE times to stop and she DID NOT, THEN he placed his hands upon her at which point she hit him


if that is NOT how it went down of course she should be vindicated..........(she claims she was ASSAULTED and feared for her life)

i have NO idea if the officer in question let WHITE MEN who were NOT wearing their identification pins into wherever ms mckinney was going. i have NO idea if he was racially profiling her OR simply doing his job. just because someone is a democrat doesn't make 'em right (look at the liebs for example)

She had little else to say, citing the ongoing investigation into her allegedly striking a police officer after he failed to recognize her at a security checkpoint and tried to stop her from passing.
One Republican congressman dismissed the star-studded news conference. "Rep. McKinney appearing with the star of "Lethal Weapon"? Not exactly the message you want to be sending," said Ron Bonjean, spokesman for House Speaker Dennis Hastert............
