This week, Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney struck a Capital Hill Police Officer after she was stopped from going metal detectors in a House office building that she did not work in. Yesterday, the Capital Hill Police planned to issue an arrest warrant for McKinney. McKinney then had a press conference where she claimed the police officer was a racist, a sexist, and an evil conservative.
McKinney should be thrown in jail to send the message that no one is above the law. One of the biggest problems we have in this country is that we have become a nation that is controlled by the Rule of Men, not the Rule of Law. The jailing of McKinney both for striking the police officer and for evading the metal detectors will be a small step to returning to the Rule of Law. Finally, perhaps Congress will think about the various security exceptions they give themselves and do away with them.
