44-year-old Anthony Scott Lloyd accused of threatening to kill Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) in a hateful, racist voicemail, remains free on bail.
He was upset with Waters’ criticism of President Trump. “If you continue to make threats toward the president, you’re going to wind up dead, Maxine, ’cause we’ll kill you,” Lloyd said in the voicemail.
According to the affidavit, Lloyd called Waters’ after he heard her condemn president Trump on a radio show—but the show wasn’t listed.
Lloyd was arrested on November 9th, but was released on a $20,000 bail.
A Judge heard someone threaten to murder a congresswoman—regardless of her political affiliation or the suspect’s—and decided it was okay for him to walk the streets in exchange for $20,000.
If Lloyd acts on these threats, if he attempts to harm Waters or any other person, representative or not, that judge needs to be held accountable.
