‘We’ve got to get more confrontational!’ Rep. Maxine Waters shows up in Brooklyn Center, slams curfew & leaves before it kicks in

Hundreds of protesters rallied outside Brooklyn Center, Minnesota police station for the seventh day in a row on Saturday, when US Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) showed up around 10:30pm to address the crowd with a brief and emotional speech.

With less than 30 minutes before yet another emergency curfew was due to go into effect, journalists at the scene asked Maxine about the restrictions.

“I don’t think anything about curfew, I don’t know what curfew means,” she said. “Curfew means that: ‘I want you all to stop talking, I want you to stop meeting, I want you to stop gathering.’ I don’t agree with that.”

In addition to the Daunte Wright protests, law enforcement in Minnesota is bracing for a verdict in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin, the former police officer accused of killing George Floyd last year in nearby Minneapolis. Maxine also shared her view on what protesters should do, if Chauvin is acquitted next week.
