Everybody expected riots if Derek Chauvin were acquitted, but with him being convicted on all three counts, what will happen next?

  1. I’ll take riots of happiness for five hundred.

    …as opposed to riots of anger.

    The subsequent question, though, is to what extent will the (((media))) suppress the news?

  2. This is like New Year’s Eve for black lives matter and antifa. They have had plenty of time and money to plan for the big party. The verdict is a VICTORY. They earned this. It’s gunna be a big show.

    Don’t we get riots when a particular city’s b-ball team wins? I am going to predict the black community will be out and about, running amuck a af__k, making a joyful noise in the streets. Looking to carry on for the TV cameras.
    Then comes, in the after party there will be some looting, shooting, busting, burning.

    They can celebrate this year’s Vikings Super Bowl victory also!!!!!

    Don’t use twat, er, Twitter but put me down for at least one night of spontaneous “celebration” and liberating electronics and clothing.

  10. “Looting for Joy.”

    Let the fuckers burn. They voted for the Marxists, let the Marxists save them.

    Thank goodness I have ammo.

  11. @Colin Wright

    There will be no protesting or rioting.

    There was a just verdict

    I think you people are evil for wanting there to be protests so that people you hate look bad

    Once again I gaursntee no protests

  12. Yawrate says:

    I think a celebratory riot is in order.

  13. Hopefully, a whole lot.

    Those Minnesota cucks are gluttons for punishment…lol

    Like 9/11, these giant ops always have multiple beneficiaries and multiple goals. Minneapolis being the target of a Norm Eisen style color revolution has multiple goals. Real estate scam for both Minneapolis and Chicago, that’s one goal. But Minneapolis as of two years ago was a fairly safe city for its size. Safe city with lots of honest White people, the kind that vote Democrat but won’t go along with systemic voter fraud. I am sure many of these people have already moved to Mankato or Coon Rapids or Sioux Falls or whatever. Once those nice White people are gone, Minneapolis will be free to vote for the national Democrat candidate at 150% turn out.

    Think of these mini, city revolutions more like the Indian raids of old, gaining territory for the Fraud and Fuck Whitey party. Minneapolis was formerly neutral territory, voting Dem but wanting to keep the old fair and impartial system. That is gone now. Redraw the map.

    We don’t want them to look bad because we hate them. We hate them because they look bad, and because they are bad.

    Their political insanity is leading to the demise of this country. For some silly reason that bothers us. I’m sorry if that offends your delicate sensibilities.

  16. RVBlake says:

    Predict rioting that will be reported as joyous celebration.

  17. Wilkey says:

    It’s still daylight in Minneapolis, so place your bets now on how much rioting there will be

    There may or may not be rioting tonight. 100% chance, though, that there will be rioting either tonight and/or on the anniversary of the martyrdom of St. George the Prophet of Floyd (Peace, Methamphetamine, and Fentanyl Be Upon Him).

    Incidentally (and totally unrelated, I am certain) – a synopsis of the change in Minneapolis crime rates from 2019 to 2020:

    Carjackings: +300% (101 to 405)
    Gunshot victims: +105% (269 to 551)
    Murder victims: +70 % (48 to 82)

    In Minneapolis alone, St. George the Prophet of Floyd (Peace, Fentanyl, Etc., Etc., Upon Him) has saved negative 34 lives. I’m sure he’ll make up for it in volume, somehow.

  18. Just got an email from the company about this. It had this bit about racial justice and healing and shit, and then proceeded directly to telling us we shouldn’t talk politics at work. Wankers! Wait until I’m about to leave anyway… [Reply to All], damn straight.

    I never thought the riots would get that big. Remember, for all the whites last year, the riots were really just veiled anti-Trump riots. Well, now, Bad Orange Man is gone, so there’s no reason for them to virtue-signal.

    And while you might say that the white libs weren’t really that violent and destructive, what they did do was use up a lot of police resources standing in the streets and shouting at them, so they couldn’t deal with the real rioters.

    Like, they added a lot of “bulk” to the riots, which made it easier for them to hit critical mass.

  20. It’s 36 degrees in Minneapolis right now (7 mph wind) so if there are any riots they are unlikely to be much. I predict none.

    The pictures of those boarded up stores look inviting though. I wonder how much grit is required to steal a pickup truck and punch right on through?

  21. @Wilkey

    They look bad because you treat them poorly because you hate them

    Your white supremacy is nauseating

    Maybe if you quit you have a female show interest in you

    Minnesotans have nothing on Michiganders when it comes to masochism.

    Look at the abuse from Whitmer those cucks in the Mitten have put up with for the past year!

    Mostly peaceful celebration.

    I’ll take looting for 500 Alec, but it may be spread out. Like winning the super bowl or NBA championship

    Suit yourself.

    As far as I can figure, all the fear talk surrounding day trading, options, and forex comes from bankers and brokers that want to lock your money up and make 30 or 40 years of fees and interest from it.

    Ramping on pretty good

    Protesters in NYC demand full police abolition, harass diners after jury finds Chauvin guilty for Floyd murder

    At one point, the abolitionist group made a stop to hold a so-called “teach-in” for New Yorkers dining outdoors at local eateries, where one megaphoned activist shouted “Get the f**k out of New York! We don’t want you here!” also alleging the restaurants were “owned by f**king white men.”

    Biden’s “Giant Stop Forward” indeed.

  32. As much rioting as it takes to make what’s left of the CBD real estate a bargain for oligarch investors.

  33. @The Wild Geese Howard

    That may be the case, Mr. Howard, but no, I mean, I am not in the any stock or any other market of any sort. I am so far from being any kind of finance dude.

    I’ve got a fear of, or at least a problem with, the whole damn thing the way it’s propped up by FED near-zero interest rate policy. No doubt I’ve been a decade or more early on this, but what can’t go on, won’t go on.

  34. Hibernian says:
    @El Dato

    There’s certainly going to be at least some of that because at least some of those mobilized for a potential acquittal won’t go home quietly.

  35. There won’t be many riots at all.

    The virtual lynching achieved its goals.

    It’s not an election year.

    Soros is trying to control salary costs.

    Portland is allowed to continue so the pros can stay sharp and the hardcore LARPers can blow off steam.

  36. Tex says:

    Like, they added a lot of “bulk” to the riots, which made it easier for them to hit critical mass.

    In Austin the leftist organizers openly talked about being on the street with the intent of using up police resources. We had comparatively little violence after the Foster shooting, but not for want of trying.

  37. Phil says:

    Appears the high yesterday was 39 in Minneapolis,

    My mental model of how these things work says that these things get significantly crazier the more pleasant it is to spend extended amounts of time outside, especially how pleasant it is to spend significant amounts of time outside after the sun goes down.

  38. res says:

    Thanks. Those are some dramatic numbers. More on the 2020 crime rates in Minneapolis at

    Some relevant quotes.

    Although violent crime was trending upward through the first half of the 2020, it really took off after May 25, when Floyd died, MPD data show. Experts said that other cities experienced similar surges in violent crime in the wake of a controversial police killing, including Baltimore after the in-custody death of Freddie Gray in 2015. Protests also consumed that city; its embattled police force went under federal investigation, and the city ended that year with 342 homicides.

    In Minneapolis, the number of arrests and traffic stops fell in 2020, continuing a yearslong decline.

    The depleted force is also down dozens of officers, with about roughly 155 cops out on personal leave, many due to post-traumatic stress disorder. Scores retired, left for jobs at other agencies, or taken a voluntary buyout.

    Last week, department officials announced that the city’s police force, which had 877 officers at the start of last year, was down to 638.

    The big question in my mind is whether that 638 number includes the 155 on personal leave or not. I would guess not, but who knows?

    ‘Well, cities might burn, but at least the jurors will not be doxxed and harassed…’

    I suspect that consideration entered into the cerebrations of at least some of them.

  40. @res

    ‘…Experts said that other cities experienced similar surges in violent crime in the wake of a controversial police killing…’

    I assume DC in the wake of the Ashli Babbitt killing would prove to be something of an outlier.

  41. Tom Grey says: • Website

    And what are/were Steve’s odd?
    Is it so hard to claim similar beliefs?
    Trumpers riot 5%, None, 22%, One night with looting, 35%, Multi-nights with arson, 38%
    Or different: 1%, 10%, 40$, 49% (mine, when feeling bad).
