On Saturday evening, Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California took to the streets of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota — 2,000 miles away from her southern Los Angeles County district — to proclaim that there would be violence on the streets if Derek Chauvin was not convicted on every count with which he was charged.

Speaking to reporters among a throng of people gathered to denounce the police over the death of Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old black man who was inadvertently but fatally shot by a police officer last week, Waters commented on the ongoing trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin.

“We’re looking for a guilty verdict,” Waters said. Referencing the three charges against Chauvin, she declared, “I hope that we’re going to get a verdict that will say guilty, guilty, guilty. And if we don’t, we cannot go away.”

When asked what protesters should do if the jury returned a verdict acquitting Chauvin of the murder counts, Waters added emphatically, “We have to stay on the street, and … get more confrontational, and we’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”
