Cops to Democrat Party: Want to Censure Someone? Censure Rep. Cynthia McKinney

The Democrats seem hell-bent on censuring the President for alleged offenses. If they're so eager to censure someone, they should censure the cop-hating Congresswoman from Georgia, Cynthia McKinney.

Representative Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) assaulted a Capitol Hill police officer and instead of apologizing and putting the incident to rest, she and her supporters began a smear campaign against the officer and against law enforcement in general, according to Jim Kouri, Vice President of the National Association of Chiefs of Police.

"Rep. McKinney first issued a statement that she supports law enforcement and then she decided to go on the offensive backed by America-hating celebrities Harry Belefonte and Danny Glover. She decided to use the race-card and even accused the Capitol Hill Police Department of using 'racial profiling,'" claims Kouri.

According to a report from the National Association of Chiefs of Police, in 2005, the nationís law enforcement agencies reported that 59,373 officers were assaulted during the performance of their duties, and 16,563 of those officers suffered injuries as a result of these attacks. Personal weapons (hands, fists, feet, etc.) were used in 80.1 percent of the attacks. Firearms were used in 3.6 percent, knives or cutting instruments in 1.9 percent. Other dangerous weapons were used in 14.5 percent of the attacks on officers.

Rep. McKinney should have been arrested and handcuffed on the spot. She is not above the law. And her smearing and race-baiting is unconscionable.

Members of congress should be setting an example for the American people instead of punching police officers while they are performing their lawful duties. Rep. McKinney actions and comments should be condemned by all members of Congress including members of her own party.

"The Democrat Party seems hell-bent on censuring someone. Perhaps they should censure Rep. Cynthia McKinney or at least an investigation into her actions by the Ethics Committee is called for," says Kouri.

The National Association of Chiefs of Police is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, tax exempt, educational association of command law enforcement officers within the United States, its territories and military forces. Jim Kouri, CPP is currently fifth vice-president of the National Association of Chiefs of Police.
