Update on the McKinney squabble

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,190523,00.html

Lordy, lordy, lordy.

House Republicans are seeking to pass a resolution commending Capitol Police for their professionalism.

While interesting, and probably a sorely needed pat on the back, the REALLY interesting part of the whole thing is in the last paragraph.

Allow me to quote:

"[Patrick] McHenry, who at 30 is the youngest member of Congress, said he is routinely stopped by Capitol Police and asked for identification.
"When I'm not wearing my pin, I am always stopped," McHenry said in a telephone interview. "I accept that as a due course of security."


A smoking gun! We now have proof positive of the racism of the Capitol Police! We have independant verification of their racist policies! "Always stopped", by God.

Here at the LawDog Files we are sure and certain that the NAACP, Danny Glover and the rest will firmly and proudly step forward and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with this other victim of the profiling policies of the Capitol Police.

<---- Congressman Patrick McHenry

*snort*

Right. Sure they will. About two hours before my legions of flying monkeys complete my quest for world domination.

Actually, McHenry is stopped due to the LEO inclination to "Age-ism."

...see, picking on kids...

yada, yada, yada.

Off-topic: the kids using Ali Cheep-Cheep came in third (statewide) in their category--and the team, overall, picked up its 4th first-place trophy in the last 5 years.

Thanks again!

I'd be stopping Congressman Scooter McFly there myself. if for nothing else, then just to slap the books outta his hands and stuff him in a locker.

""Always stopped", by God."

Must be nice for that to happen to a good Irish(possibly Catholic) like Patrick McHenry.

Last night I caught some of the Congress critter's apology on the radio. Apparently the Caucus of her peers wouldn't even support her. I heard her say she would be voting in favor of the police support resolution.

Good.
