Last weekend on MSNBC’s The Sunday Show, unhinged anti-Trump Rep. Maxine Waters said she wants qualified immunity for police offers to be removed so they can be held responsible for the continued “killings of black unarmed men, in particular.”
On the ongoing Senate negations of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, Waters said, “Our negotiators are fighting as hard as they can and should continue to fight, but I’m not giving up on qualified immunity. I do not want to send any message to anybody that I’m willing to support legislation that does not have it in it. I think we’ve got to be tough. We’ve got to be consistent. Understand that we’ve got to hold police officers accountable. Even since the death of George Floyd, we continued to have killings of black unarmed men, in particular.”
One would never know from listening to Mad Max that the number of unarmed black men killed by cops is utterly eclipsed by the number of unarmed black men killed by other black men — an issue Democrats never address.
She went on to ramble about how mayors have been intimidated for far too long by powerful police unions, and thus “the police don’t believe they’re going to be held accountable. That’s why even after George Floyd, they continue to kill, and so I want qualified immunity out.”
George Floyd was a small-time thug who was not murdered by the police, but the race-mongering left like Maxine Waters has fabricated an almost religious icon out of him and a statistically insignificant few others to weaponize against law enforcement. Meanwhile, black criminals wipe out unarmed black males with literal impunity because the Democrats who run nearly every inner city in America can’t weaponize those murders politically.
