SHOCKING: Anti-War Minister's Leg Broken by Capitol Hill Police at Petraeus Hearing


Rev. Lennox Yearwood of the HipHop Caucus wanted to attend the Petraeus Hearings yesterday. He stood on line waiting his turn to enter the room. This is what happened to him.

Capitol Hill Police “football tackled” Hip Hop Activist who was in line to enter hearing room for General Petreus’ testimony on Capitol Hill

Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Jr., president of the Hip Hop Caucus, was attacked by six capitol police today, when he was stopped from entering the Cannon Caucus Room on Capitol Hill, where General Petreaus gave testimony today to a joint hearing for the House Arms Services Committee and Foreign Relations Committee on the war in Iraq.

After waiting in line throughout the morning for the hearing that was scheduled to start at 12:30pm, Rev. Yearwood was stopped from entering the room, while others behind him were allowed to enter. He told the officers blocking his ability to enter the room, that he was waiting in line with everyone else and had the right to enter as well. When they threatened him with arrest he responded with “I will not be arrested today.” According to witnesses, six capitol police, without warning, “football tackled him. He was carried off in a wheel chair by DC Fire and Emergency to George Washington Hospital.

Rev. Yearwood was examined for possible head and leg injuries then transferred to Central Processing. He has been charged with “assaulting a police officer.”

Rev. Yearwood said as he was being released from the hospital to be taken to central booking, “The officers decided I was not going to get in Gen. Petreaus’ hearing when they saw my button, which says ‘I LOVE THE PEOPLE OF IRAQ.’”

At least statements like this are going to help us separate the good from the bad.

Bad people ar getting more open about their position, and this has been helping good people to separate themselves from them.

This is the only good thing about responses like this.

Too bad you don't live in North Korea. You'd like it there. Here in America the government isn't supposed to break people's legs for exercising their (now former) right to free speech.

hey.. break a leg..! Maybe protesters should go ready prepared next time in plaster.. I've watched London police attack a mother & child in Hyde Park, breaking her back & severely injuring the toddler in his pushchair, then they beat up the camera man who taped it, breaking his nose & jaw, and destroying his £40k broadcast camera. Welcome to the 'free' world eh..

Are you all blind or under hypnosis? The rev moved first and the cops responded. I would have done the same if I were a cop there.

They grabbed him and started pulling him. He resisted, but he didn't assault anyone.

Besides, they had no right to keep him from attending that meeting. They should have kept their greasy paws off him.

"Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace." Bill Hicks (1961-1994)
