Perhaps annoyed that the conviction of a Minneapolis police officer took away their latest excuse to steal, burn and threaten with full media support, Black Lives Matter protesters fumed after the April 20 verdict and looked for a new fight.
Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted on all counts, manslaughter and murder, in the death of George Floyd, a drug-addicted man with a criminal record whom they were trying to subdue last May.
The jury took less than a day to reach a verdict, though many expected deliberations to take several days. Chauvin is to be sentenced in several weeks, and faces up to 75 years in prison.
After the verdict, journalist Drew Hernandez hit the streets of Minneapolis and recorded the reactions of far-left Black Lives Matter activists, as reported by The Daily Wire.
“Yes, we can defund the police,” one BLM supporter shouted. “And maybe one day we will abolish the police, but we ain’t gonna do s**t unless we have control over them. That is the number one thing right now. … We’re not gonna let these pigs in these buildings have any more control over our lives today. That s**t ends today.”
Another called for people to attack “the system” from “every single f***ing angle” and to “go way beyond voting at this point.”
“We need to go way beyond voting at this point,” the BLM supporter said. “We need to be coming out here every single day if that’s what it takes, until we get justice for the people that they murdered a week ago that they’ve already forgotten about. … The only reason once again, that we got this conviction, is because we showed up. And if we don’t keep showing up, and if we don’t change laws, and we don’t attack this system, from every single f***ing angle we can, we will be here again.”
Meanwhile, the nation anxiously waits for the next intoxicated black suspect to resist arrest.
