Rep. Maxine Waters says Trayvon Martin killing may be hate crime
dailybreeze.com ^ | March 28, 2012

Posted on 03/28/2012 6:31:24 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

South Bay Rep. Maxine Waters on Wednesday characterized the shooting of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin as a "hate crime" during an appearance on CNN.

"There are too many unanswered questions and I really, personally, believe this is a hate crime," Waters said during a joint early morning television interview with Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo.

Martin, a 17-year-old African-American, was fatally shot last month by George Zimmerman, a Neighborhood Watch leader. Zimmerman, who was not charged with a crime, has said he acted in self-defense after Martin punched him. Zimmerman has a white father and Latino mother.

That Maxine. She’s always a step ahead.

My sympathies to her district. But, then, you get what you vote for.

Blacks can’t commit “hate-crimes” no matter how full-of-hate they are, can they Max?

Maybe it is a hate crime.

Maybe Mr. Zimmerman hated being beaten.

"There are too many unanswered questions and I really, personally, believe this is a hate crime,"

It must have been all those unanswered questions that convinced her.

A seat in Congress can’t be safer than Maxine’s. Except maybe Jackson-Lee in Houston. That’s pretty safe too.

I’ve heard on the news today that Zimmerman is being called a white Hispanic. Kind of “racey” don’t you think.

During the 911 calls Mr. Zimmerman never mentioned the race of Mr. Martin. I don’t understand how at night, from a considerable distance, Mr. Zimmerman could determine the race of a person wearing a hoodie. To him it would be “someone acting suspicious” of indeterminate race.

The only hate crime here is her hatred for white people. She is going to try to use this to squeeze everything she can out of it.

People like this should not hold office. I am going to get a trademark for a black bag with her face on it. It will say “My face is a hate crime”!

Maxine, what the hell happened with your ETHICS trial....

Ya bag of corrupt purified race baiting gene-pool reject.

Is there no dignified statesman left in this country.

Throw her, Miss where's the flag on Mars, and every traitor that voted for NDAA right into Gitmo. and ban their constituency from casting a vote until they can provide proof of "non stupid" or at least a brain wave graph (gosh that will cut down on Democrat voter fraud).

Maxine Waters is a "Hate Crime". Every time I hear her say something, I am offended. I'm offended that THAT is what a person who is in the Congress of the United States is the BEST we can do?

Of course, being from a Tribal area, she cannot lose an Election, unless ANOTHER Black candidate with even more vitriol against Whites comes forward to run against her.
