As if police officers don’t have enough to worry about these days, in Los Angeles they now have to deal with despicable, attention-seeking Democratic lawmakers interfering with their efforts to do their job.
Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., the woman who launched a wave of incidents where Republican officials were accosted in the public by unhinged activists, was captured on video over the weekend pulling her SUV over to monitor a traffic stop by LA police.
Her reasoning being clear — because the driver being stopped was a black man.
“They stopped a brother, so I stopped to see what they were doing,” the lawmaker tells some admirers.
Waters was praised online for her actions.

The use of the term “brother” used to indicate that the driver was black. The remark suggests that had the driver been white, Watters would have cruised by unconcerned about any potential mistreatment by police.
At the same time, the controversial 81-year-old Democrat was clear about her disdain for law enforcement.
“They say I’m in the wrong place and they’re going to give me a ticket,” she continued. “That’s okay, as long as I watch them.”
However, it appears that Waters was more intent on harassing the police officers as they carry out their duty, according to the Daily Mail.
The British tabloid reported that a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Office said the motorist was stopped as part of a burglary investigation early Friday.
The department said Waters initially pulled her luxury SUV up to the traffic stop and began “yelling at the deputies.”
The congresswoman was told she was obstructing traffic and asked to pull over — the video above begins after she did so and was exiting the vehicle. After Waters finished jawing with her admirers, as the Democrat stood in a traffic lane, she is seen heading toward a deputy engaged in the stop.
The LASO spokesperson said Waters was given a warning after she refused to sign a citation for the possible violation of obstructing traffic.
The disdain Democrats like Waters — and their media allies — show toward cops is all but certain to result in another rash of assassinations, as was seen in 2014, when Black Lives Matter first exploded on the political scene after the death of Michael Brown.
Despite the media’s “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative — which was found to be untrue by Eric Holder’s Justice Department — the 18-year-old died after he violently attacked a police officer he outweighed by a hundred pounds.
The police officer, who saw his life destroyed by the left, was forced to defend his life by shooting the charging Brown.
Remarkably, the phrase “hands up, don’t shoot” is still used today by race activists.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story that offers some hope, as there are still a few who recognize the ruse that is Maxine Waters.
obstruction of justice and impeding and investigation, they should have cited her

She is impeding a police investigation. The police have enough to worry about being injured just by a traffic stop. They dont need ANYONE else stopping and impeding their investigation and potentially causing injury to themself or the officers.

Most work Maxine has ever done in her 25+ year political career.

That would be the lawyers job regarding their rights. Great way for her to get injured or worse. She had no idea why the police performed the traffic stop (to my knowledge) and this could have ended tragically. I see her “intentions” however please let police do their job!

The best part is she doesn’t even live in her district lol.

This was overkill. If she was really concern she would be addressing all the violence and poverty in the community she’s taken millions from over the years. She was to concern she stopped to address the person holding the camera
