In the short video clip shared on Twitter, Waters is seen standing near her black SUV and telling a group of off-camera bystanders that officers had threatened her with a ticket.
“They say I’m in the wrong place,” Waters is heard saying. “They’re going to give me a ticket, but that’s okay, as long as I watch them.”
“You gotta do what you gotta do,” another woman is heard saying, off-camera.
“I will,” the congresswoman responds.
Waters’s office did not immediately return a request for comment on the video.”
Insider covers Maxine's pro-Defund The Police stance:
Waters has been a proponent of police reform in the wake of ongoing protests about police brutality that began at the end of May when police officers in Minneapolis killed 46-year-old George Floyd.
"Citizens are doing the best job that they can do by photographing it," she said of Americans recording police misconduct in an interview with TMZ Live following Floyd's death. "They're photographing. They're showing what is taking place, and what we're finding is that the justice system does not work. The justice system will find a way to protect those officers, in most cases."
She continued: "We've got to deal with the fact that we're in America with a justice system that does not work for everybody, and that when we have one of these killings, we cannot depend on this justice system to make the right conclusion about what has taken place."
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told Insider that their officers were not involved in the Friday incident. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office did not immediately return Insider's request for comment."
It is unclear what Maxine believes the Officer was doing wrong, other than pulling over a black man.
Just remember this is the same woman who said nothing as protestors were burning American flags outside her office in California.
This is just another attempt to villainize "White America" and create further racial tensions in the country.
