Cynthia, Cynthia, Cynthia...

U.S. Representative, Cynthia McKinney, punched a police officer! Good news is that they are going to arrest her!

McKinney Punches Police Officer

In other good news, Cynthia McKinney is a GREAT source for humor!

Cynthia McKinney: They Put Up Her Picture with Silence, Cuz Her Identity By Itself Causes Violence - In August 1993, during her first term in office, a Capitol Hill police officer tried to prevent her from bypassing a metal detector, as members of Congress are allowed to do. For years afterward, The Hill reports, the Capitol Police pinned a picture of McKinney to an office wall, warning officers to learn her face because she refuses to wear her member's pin. (And because officers are innately suspicious of a black woman with braided hair and gold shoes.)

More McKinney: Punching Cops Apparently Illegal - Ok, so President Bush landed his guy in the hospital and got him off duty for 14 weeks. Pretty impressive, sure. And Silvio wins the total creep award, being completely flagrant and unashamed about his skeeziness. But you, so far, are the first one to have gotten the cop in question to decide to press charges (according to CNN). How awesome is that? We have even been told that the Capitol Police have issued a warrant for your arrest!
