Dozens of angry protesters targeted diners in the Big Apple Tuesday night; chanting “stay the f*** out of New York” just hours after Derek Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree murder in Minneapolis.
“Stay the f— out of New York! … We don’t want you here! … We don’t want you here! … We don’t want your f—ing money!” yelled one demonstrator.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz weighed-in Wednesday on President Biden’s comments surrounding the guilty verdict of Derek Chauvin; saying the Commander-in-Chief’s rhetoric could be “grounds for a mistrial.”
“I waited until the jury was sequestered and I called the Floyd Family,” said the President.
“I’m praying the verdict is the right verdict. I think it’s overwhelming, in my view. I wouldn’t say that unless the jury was sequestered, now that they can’t hear me say that,” he added.

“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,” Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill said earlier this week “If they want to give their opinions, they should do so … in a manner that is consistent with their oath to the Constitution.”
