Representative "Pop-a-Cop" Apologizes as Jury Meets

Cynthia McKinney apologizes for smacking the cop at the Capital last week,

But, what kind of message is she sending her constituents who rallied for their right to pop-a-cop earlier in the week?

What are they supposed to think of this double-talk?
What is she recommending they do when questioned by officers of the law, now?

Sadly, her apology does not stop a grand jury from meeting today to hear evidence about the McKinney scuffle with the Capital Police Officer:

A federal grand jury arrived Thursday at the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., to hear from two House staff aides about a scuffle last Wednesday involving a Capitol Police officer and Democratic Rep. Cynthia McKinney.

Meanwhile, McKinney, made a formal apology on the House floor for the incident, saying “there should not have been any physical contact.”

“I am sorry that this misunderstanding happened at all, and I regret this escalation, and I apologize,” she said to applause. McKinney also said she would support a House resolution introduced by Republicans to express appreciation for the work done by Capitol Police.

Is it any wonder that Republican Michael Steele is making inroads with black voters when Cynthia McKinney stands out as a typical representative of the modern day black Democrat?
