I made an iReport on CNN. It's not the best and CNN can take hours or never to verify it, but the commun ity is large enough so that it can still get views. This is just astounding to me. iReport on Betty McCray

More than twenty armed police officers in the St. Louis County city of Kinloch are preventing the newly-elected mayor from entering her office. The police officers were accompanied by political opponents who wrongfully told Mayor Betty McCray had been impeached. Mayor McCray won the April 7th election, and the election results were certified by the St. Louis County Board of Elections. The city attorney, a political opponent, told Mayor McCray she was impeached, but county law requires that the impeachment hearings cannot take place until 30 days after articles were served.
Police Coup Prevents Newly-Elected St. Louis Area Mayor From Taking Office
Local Fox 2 reports that “after election results were certified earlier this week by the St. Louis County Board of Elections, Kinloch’s outgoing administration refused to allow the city clerk to give McCray the oath of office, claiming voter fraud.”
But in spite of these claims, there has been no evidence whatsoever to back it up. Kinloch was elected. The St. Louis County Board of Elections certified the results. But the police are enforcing an illegal “coup” of sorts.
This is a developing story -- more as it becomes available.
Attempted coup? Good question.

Doesn't a coup need to have someone else taking over after kicking someone else out?
I don't see that happening here, just someone not being allowed to take office.
So, by definition, is this a coup? I need to look into the meaning....

Perhaps this will shake the crib of the sleeping sheeple, and the MSM will provide blanket coverage exposing the corruption that is rotting out our country.
Oh wait, the NWO controls the media and will lull the sheeple back to sleep with more episodes of Dancing with the Stars and the Kardasheons (puke). And in the end, it will be Bush's fault.

The police didn't want her as Mayor anyway. Some resigned over her election.
On April 7, McCray defeated Mayor Darren Small with 63 votes to his 18.
They could make a TV show out that place. Instead of "Crime and Punishment" they can call it "Crime in Government".
