Representative Cynthia McKinney (R) (D-GA) speaks at a news conference with actor Danny Glover (L) and singer Harry Belafonte after she had an altercation with a Capitol Hill police officer earlier in the week in Washington March 31, 2006. McKinney is waiting to learn if she will be charged for apparently striking an officer after she entered a House office building earlier this week unrecognized and did not stop when asked.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: McKinney accuses Capitol Hill cop of racism

Rep. Cynthia McKinney on Friday declared herself the victim of a racist Capitol Hill police officer who her supporters said used excessive force when he stopped her from skirting a security checkpoint earlier this week.

“The whole incident was instigated by the inappropriate touching and stopping of me — a female, black congresswoman,” McKinney said at a news conference, abandoning the apologetic tone she struck earlier in the week.


This bitch should be charged with assault and prosecuted. And her colleague, Representative Juanita Millender-McDonald should be prosecuted for obstruction of justice.

AllahPundit over at M/M has MCKINNEY PLAYS THE RACE CARD

Capitol police are considering filing assault charges against the DeKalb County Democrat next week. But her lawyers said she was acting in self-defense when she struck the officer who tried to stop her.

“Cynthia McKinney, like thousands of average Americans across this country, is … a victim of the excessive use of force by law enforcement officials because of how she looks and the color of her skin,” said one of McKinney’s lawyers, James Myart Jr.

The Capitol police should file the charges and allow this MORON tell it to the judge.

And playing the “RACE CARD” is ludicrous.

But, then again, like Nancy Pelosi said, “It is NO BIG DEAL.”

But police union officials from across the country denounced McKinney’s tactics and said the officer involved — not McKinney — was the true victim.

“There was no excessive force here,” said Lou Cannon, president of the Washington, D.C., chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police, which represents Capitol officers. “If she’s trying to turn this into a racial issue, people should ask, ‘Why is she doing this?’ This is an insult to all police officers.”

This is an insult……

McKinney should RESIGN her seat in Congress or the House should throw her ASS out.

Stay tuned…..

A video grab shows French President Jacques Chirac as he addresses the nation from the Elysee Palace in Paris, March 31, 2006, to explain how he aims to end weeks of strikes and huge demonstrations against the CPE First Job Contract, which critics say undermines job security for young workers. Chirac said on Friday he would sign a controversial youth job law despite weeks of protest against it, but promised amendments that would weaken two of its most disputed reforms.

ASSociated Press: Chirac Makes Some Concessions on Jobs Law

President Jacques Chirac said Friday he would press ahead with a contentious labor law making it easier to fire workers, but he offered some concessions in hopes of calming furious protests that led to nationwide strikes.

Chirac said he would reduce a trial period during which employees could be summarily dismissed from two years to one, and he would require employers to offer reasons for the dismissal.

So, Chirac capitulates and hangs Prime Minister Villepin out to dry. How typical of him. Ask Colin Powell.

Bordeaux II university students react in Bordeaux, southwest France, as French President Jacques Chirac delivers his speech on TV March 31, 2006. The students are protesting against a youth job plan based on a new employment contract which they say will increase job insecurity for the young and will not reduce unemployment. The new job contract, known as the CPE, would allow firms to hire people aged under 26 for a two-year trial period before offering them a permanent job.
And the changes, well, they pretty much gut the law into meaningless bloviation to the French business community.

In preserving the principle that workers under 26 would face a lack of job security, Chirac came down on the side of his prime minister, Dominique de Villepin, who has argued that businesses will welcome the added flexibility, encouraging hirings that will bring down France’s chronic youth unemployment rates.

The contested jobs law “can be an effective tool for employment,” Chirac said.

What a joke. The CPE is now worthless and do you think the socialists will be appeased?

The concessions appeared to anger, not appease, opponents of the law, who wanted it scrapped altogether.

“We don’t want to negotiate … we don’t want it at all,” Bruno Julliard, head of the largest students’ union, said on TF1 television. “The president had the chance to give a clear answer, which he didn’t do.”

The head of the Worker’s Force union, Jean-Claude Mailly, said strikes already planned for next Tuesday should go ahead.

A modified law “is not what was asked for,” he said.

Stay tuned for more bloody street demonstrations/protests…..
