Black Lives Matter activist Maya Echols threatened that Minneapolis will face mass riots and vandalism if former Police Officer Derek Chauvin is not convicted for the death of George Floyd.
“If George Floyd’s murderer is not sentenced, just know that all hell is gonna break loose,” Echols said in the video which she later removed. “Don’t be surprised when buildings are on fire. Just sayin’.”
Echols, who also happens to be a social media influncer and signed IMG Worldwide model, has roughly half a million followers on TikTok where she posted the video.
In another recent TikTok video from Echols, the so-called activist boasts of her “Black Lives Matter” face mask that she likes to wear at her grocery store in a “predominantly white” neighborhood.
Echols claims “conservatives” give her dirty looks for the mask and bragged that she stares them down and looks “down on them” since she’s usually taller and “they’re not gonna say anything to me.”
“My new favorite guilty pleasure is going to the grocery store with this mask on,” she starts the video, taking off her “Black Lives Matter” mask. “I live in a predominately white area …. and the looks I get from these conservatives are crazy, like y’all would be shocked. Like, the death stares I get. It’s so funny to me, though.”
“Like, I get so much pleasure out of seeing somebody upset because I’m saying my life matters,” Echols continues. “Like, it makes me laugh. And then I just look at them dead in their face, and usually I’m taller than them, so I just look down at them, and I look them in their eyes, ’cause they’re not gonna say anything to me.”
Last summer was plagued by riots as numerous cities were set ablaze and trashed by BLM and Antifa who claimed they were doing so to fight “racism” by police officers against black people.
Businesses were destroyed and more than a dozen people were killed during the chaos.
Some prominent Black Lives Matter activists have publicly excused and seemingly supported the destruction of cities, perhaps making the situation even more dangerous.
Chauvin is currently on trial for second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in relation to Floyd’s death. The former officer can be found guilty of all, some, or none of the charges since they are all separate.
Since he has no criminal history, Chauvin is likely looking at “serving about 12 1/2 years whether he is convicted of second or third-degree murder,” according to The Associated Press. The manslaughter charge, which has the lowest burden of proof, would bring a maximum of 10 years in prison.
After officers were notified that Floyd allegedly gave counterfeit money at a convenience store back in May, Chauvin and three other officers arrested and detained Floyd. Viral video shows that Chauvin kneeled on Floyd’s neck while detaining the Floyd.
Chauvin’s attorneys, however, have pointed out that that Floyd’s drug use was a crucial factor in his death. The Hennepin County medical examiner also reported after Floyd’s autopsy that the deceased had potentially lethal levels of drugs in his system.
