Despite former officer Derek Chauvin being found guilty on all three charges in the death of George Floyd case, Black Lives Matter activists are still not satisfied and want white people to pay, even threatening a civil war.
Journalist Ami Horowitz was on the ground in Minneapolis as the jury announced their final verdict interviewing left-wing extremists.
“Burn the whole city down, what does it matter?” said one of the women interviewed. “I say burn the city down, y’know? So they can see that we’re here,” another woman said.
Another BLM extremist said that Chauvin didn’t deserve a trial in the first place: “There shouldn’t even be a trial, he should be convicted just as is.”
One woman falsely claimed that “thousands” of unarmed black men were killed last year in the United States by the police. The actual number is 18.
Horowitz asked a younger woman if a civil war was necessary and she said “if that’s what it takes, then we have to do it.”
Two other woman agreed.
The most extreme comment came from one BLM extremist who suggested that white people need to feel the pain.
“I don’t want to say we need to start killing all white folks, but it’s like…” one of the militant extremists said.
“But…?” Horowitz questioned.
“Maybe they need to feel the pain and the hurt,” she added.

On Tuesday afternoon, Chauvin was found guilty on all three charges brought against him in the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd.
Check out what CBS News reported:
Former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted Tuesday on all counts in the death of George Floyd, whose killing sparked worldwide protests and a reckoning on race in the U.S. After about a day of deliberations, the jury found Chauvin guilty of unintentional second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
Judge Peter Cahill read the verdict at the heavily secured Hennepin County Government Center in downtown Minneapolis, where the trial began last month. A cheer could be heard from the crowd of peaceful protesters that had gathered outside.
Chauvin showed little reaction after the verdict was announced. Judge Cahill announced his bail had been revoked and Chauvin was led away in handcuffs.
Cahill said sentencing will take place in about eight weeks.
The jury — made up of six White people, four Black people and two multiracial people — heard 13 days of sometimes emotional testimony. The jury was sequestered during deliberations, but was not sequestered during the earlier portion of the trial.
