Documents have now been revealed that show Rep. Maxine Waters, on the day she participated in a rally in which she openly advocated for resistance to law enforcement if former police officer Derek Chauvin, the man who was accused of murdering George Floyd, was found not guilty, seemingly requested a police escort to the event.
According to Disrn, Waters actually told protesters that “we’ve got to stay in the streets.”
“We are looking for a guilty verdict,” the congresswoman went on to say. “If nothing does not happen (sic) then we have to not only stay in the streets but we have to fight for justice. I am very hopeful and I hope that we are going to get a verdict that is guilty, guilty, guilty and if we don’t, we cannot go away.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a Republican, called the remarks dangerous and inciting.
Here’s the actual documentation of the request made by Waters:
If you look up the definition of “hypocrite,” you’ll find a photograph of Waters’s face, along with a ton of other Democrats.
It is time for law enforcement to deny these requests. Just say that, “lack of funding has forced us to end non essential services like escorts for politicians.”
