Bill Conroy continues to report in The Narcosphere on the controversy surrounding the Cynthia McKinney "assault" incident. Congresswoman McKinney has continually been one of the few true voices of dissent and truth-seeking on Capitol Hill. In addition to her work for her own constituents, McKinney has taken bold stands against Plan Colombia and U.S. policy toward Latin America, and supported Narco News in many of our most difficult times.
"All the Cynthia McKinney bashers now feasting on the blood of scandal, including a wide swath of the mainstream media, may soon find themselves choking on that blood.
"That's just a prediction based on my seat in the peanut gallery, but I'm prepared at this point to throw a few more shells into the fray.
"In an interview on CNN Wednesday night, McKinney's lawyer confirmed that representatives of the Capitol Police actually met with the Congresswoman in the wake of the 'assault' incident to apologize to the Congresswoman. That sure doesn't sound like the action of a police department that believes one of its own was the victim of an assault – but rather, it seems to me, indicates they were concerned the police officer acted inappropriately.
"McKinney's attorney, James Myart, also raised an interesting point during the broadcast. If a crime truly was committed by McKinney, he asked, then why wasn't she arrested on the spot? When's the last time you heard of someone 'assaulting' a cop and being allowed to walk away?
"It doesn't add up."
Conroy also shows how the pending discrimination lawsuit he uncovered, filed by more that 250 black Capitol Police officers against the department, has become a factor, though CNN and other mainstream media outlets have failed to look into the issue at all. The coverage of this case in the Commercial Media, not to mention the lack of support McKinney has received from fellow Democratic lawmakers, has been deplorable.
