When viewing some of the so called representatives in Washington who act irrational, call for violence against their fellow Americans on the other side of the political spectrum, and overall act like blithering idiots, it is always a good idea to check out the districts they represent. The case and point here is Mad Maxine Waters who represents the 43rd Congressional District in California. Waters’ district includes the cities of Carson, Torrance, Hawthorne, Lawndale, Gardena, Inglewood, Lomita, and sections of Los Angeles proper.
Some statistics for cities in Waters’ district.
Unemployment rate, 4.2%, to as much as 6.7% depending on where you get the information.
Crime rate using 100 as safest, Carson comes in with a 16 at 32.38
So, we can safely see that the city of Carson is a town suffering from both a high crime rate and high unemployment.
Unemployment rate, this city comes in with a much better rate than Carson at 3.4%
Crime: Using the same method as above, the crime rate here is at a 25 with an actual percentage at 24.64%
While unemployment seems to be better here, the crime rate seems to be in the same general percentage range.

Virtually all cities included in District 43 have outrageously high crime rates which does not mesh with the official low unemployment numbers since usually when most of the population of a city is working, the crime rates tend to be much lower. The low unemployment rates in this area can be considered false based on both the crime rate as well as the number of jobs listed in local newspapers here. Most jobs listed in this area are for positions out of the area like beach cities, Orange County, and as far away as Riverside and San Bernardino.
The number of homeless people in the 43rd CD is also astronomical with perhaps as many as 20,000 living on the streets in this area. The city of Los Angeles proper has an estimated homeless population of over 50,000, but the actual number is much higher considering no one actually has a job of counting them. The same goes for the 43rd.
In the city of Hawthorne area alone, there are 29 homeless shelters, this is not counting the number of shelters in various cities within in this area.
Maxine Waters herself chooses not to live in the 43rd CD, among the gang violence, overall high crime, blight, and filthy streets, but instead lives in Hancock Park, a city in the Beverly Hills and West Hollywood area that is a ritzy area of mansions, golf courses, resorts, and is 70% white.
This tells us that Maxine Waters cares nothing about the people she supposedly represents in her district, but like so many of her fellow representatives in DC, only care about living large, having the notoriety, and the power that comes with the position.
In reality, Waters is nothing more than a figurehead who represents no one, but herself and her self interests while the people in her district suffer a living Hell 24/7/365.
