"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

McKinney Grand Jury Still Active

The U.S. Attorney's Office said Monday that no action was expected today (4/25). According to the paper, Paul McKenna, the officer involved has already testified.

"In addition to McKenna, at least two Congressional staffers have also been subpoenaed by the grand jury. A week after the March 29 incident occurred, an aide for Rep. Sam Farr (D-Calif.) and another for Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mich.) each received subpoenas from the Superior Court of the District of Columbia to testify in the case."

According to Chuck Canterbury, the national president of the Grand Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police, "we're very concerned about this case and we just can't figure out why [the grand jury investigation] is taking so long. This is an extraordinary amount of time for an investigation into a situation that wasn't a drawn-out event or ongoing situation. It was an incident that occurred in a very short amount of time. We're following it on a daily basis."

This may be because McKinney is such an explosive individual and they are likely trying to make sure there is nothing that can be jumped on by her. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done; she will find something regardless of how thorough they are. When an individual apologizes like she did, "there should not have been any physical contact in this incident (cops fault) . I have always supported law enforcement. ... I am sorry that this misunderstanding happened at all, (sorry cop didn't recognize her and that he physically molested her) and I regret its escalation (regret that I saw it for what it was, police abuse and racism). And I apologize (for what this officer did)."
