Maxine Waters says protestors should 'get more confrontational'
"We're looking for a guilty verdict," the congresswoman said regarding Derek Chauvin' trial for the death of George Floyd.
Representative Maxine Waters expressed her solidarity with protestors in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota on the seventh night of demonstrations since the death of Daunte Wright, and said protestors should "get more confrontational."
"We're looking for a guilty verdict," the congresswoman said regarding the trial of Derek Chauvin in connection with the death of George Floyd last year, but if there is not a guilty verdict, "we cannot go away," she said.
When someone asked what protestors should do if that does not occur, the congresswoman first said she did not hear the question, but when asked what protestors should do, Waters responded.
"Well, we gotta stay on the street," Waters said. "And we've got to get more active. We've got to get more confrontational. We've got to make sure that they know that we mean business."
Waters, a California Democrat, has served in the U.S. House of Representatives for three decades.
