Protesters surround truck, chant slurs at police and military in wake of Chauvin verdict: Reports

Not all protesters were deterred from their demonstrations after former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of murder for the death of 46-year-old George Floyd during an arrest last year.

After hearing the verdict, some outside the courthouse wept and cheered, but others chanted slurs against the military and police and even surrounded a tractor-trailer as their pent-up anger apparently had nowhere to go, the Washington Examiner reported.

“F*** the National Guard!” some protesters reportedly shouted. (Editor’s note: The video shown below contains language that may be offensive to some.)

Unspent anger

Activists also surrounded a semi truck trying to drive through the protest area and tried to break its windows, the Examiner said.

Still, not all protesters were bent on causing damage. Some hugged and locked arms, chanting, “All three counts!”

Floyd’s girlfriend, Courtney Ross, also prayed with protesters after the verdict, reports noted. She reacted to Chauvin’s conviction by thanking God, saying, “God is good” and “proved that today.”

Chauvin sentencing

Chauvin was taken into custody after the verdict and now awaits sentencing in about eight weeks. For his part in killing Floyd, Chauvin could get up to 40 years in prison, the Associated Press notes.

The judge in the case has acknowledged that Chauvin could have grounds for appeal after Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) effectively tried to intimidate the jury by telling protesters to “stay on the street” until they get justice.

“I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned,” Judge Peter Cahill declared while ruling against a mistrial, according to Politico.

“This goes back to what I’ve been saying from the beginning. I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch and our function,” Cahill added.

  1. I fully believe that the national guard should have rolled outtanks to quel these protesters and that some us attorney should step forwardthat MaxzineWalters beindited and bound over for trial since the Democratsfailed to expell her from congress.

    1. The protesters will keep going. They use that so they can loot business. It should be legal to stop anyone trying to destroy some one’s property.

  2. No,isn’t screw the National Guard or Police, it’s screw all you Terrorist Protesters. Now it’s time to start arresting protest in the street’s.p

  4. So this country is now at a time where bunk antifa and MLM can bully the police and military with FULL immunity anytime and anywhere. This is now the new norm…violence, looting, burning etc.

  5. These outlaws will not stop till they ARE met with the ANGER of the law abiding American people. THEY are trash and the cesspool dwellers of our nation and only want what they can have for free. I say when they start burning/destroying other people property–STOP them then and keep law and order WHAT EVER IT TAKES! They are trash and will never change, they will remain leaches on society. We need as a nation to be RID of this trash and right now I see few options to stop them. Our government is corrupt and tries every chance it can to tie the hands of the Police and Guard! We need this corrupt government GONE and bring back SANITY in office. Biden is the WORSE President EVER and STOLE OUR election to get in office. Every state needs to AUDIT the results of the 2020 election and if FRAUD is found we need a REDO to get RID of the criminals in office now!! This country cannot stand much more of this lawlessness and 4 years is TOO LONG to have to wait. Get rid of Biden/Harris NOW and heal our country!!!

  6. I knew that after the verdict was handed down that the rioting would not stop, as I’m sure many believe the same. If they think that they stopped the National Guard they are in for a rude awakening. There are many resources available to the NG. Your days are numbered antifa, blm and any others involved with the rioting.

  7. God does not have to prove He is good. The left, and the right have to prove they are trying to do good by turning to God. America needs to read and obey Acts 2:38, starting with Joe Biden. What a shame that he would make any comment at all about a verdict. Shows the lowest of IQ.

  8. These are not protestors in any way, shape or form. They are terrorists, and should be treated as such. They need to be taken down!

  9. The Oscumites should be proud of their nasty and hateful agenda That is what they stand for and promote They drank the Oscumas brain wash propaganda No tribute here for conniving Bathhouse Barry and his ex linebacker husband, Big Mike

  10. Turn the firemen loose and hose’m down. Spray over the top and if that cool them down ,just start washing them down the street, down the drainage pipes.
