D.C. Cops Break Minister’s Leg

  • Rev. Lennox Yearwood of the Hip Hop Caucus waits in line like everyone else to attend the Petraeus hearings, but when he passes D.C. Capitol cops, they stop him from entering. His only possible offense, wearing a button proclaiming “I LOVE THE PEOPLE OF IRAQ” (and, arguably, being black). A scuffle ensues. Cops take him down, football-style, break his leg. Someone captures the whole thing on video. [Alternet]
