As most people are aware at this point, former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of manslaughter, second-degree murder and third-degree murder Tuesday in the death of George Floyd. However, the judge who presided over the trial said the case might be far from over.
Throughout the whole proceedings, protesters and rioters were in the streets of Minneapolis demanding “justice” in the case. This not only was tolerated but in fact was encouraged by many on the left.
Most notably, Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California visited Minnesota and declared that protesters would need to turn up the heat if the trial didn’t go their way.
“We’ve got to stay on the street and we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business,” Waters said.
