Waters thanked demonstrators for being there, and said if there is no guilty verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial "we cannot go away." Waters said, "we got to stay on the street, get more active, more confrontational."
"If nothing does happen, then we know that we've not only got to stay on the street but we have got to fight for justice," Waters said of the Derek Chauvin trial.
Conservative commentators said the threats from Waters are domestic terrorism.
"I hope we get a verdict that says guilty, guilty, guilty. And if we don't, we cannot go away. We've got to stay on the street. We get more active, we've got to get more confrontational. We've got to make sure that they know that we mean business," Waters warned.
