Did Maxine Waters’ incitement to violence cause this?

Firefighters responded to a church fire in northeast Minneapolis Monday evening after closing arguments in the Chauvin trial concluded.

Tensions are very high after Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters threatened Chauvin jurors and incited mob violence.

Rep. Waters told BLM protesters to “get more confrontational with authorities.”

The church is located on the 2200 block of 5th St. NE, about 10 minutes from the protest downtown.

Structure Fire – Crews have lines laid to a 2-story church with a large steeple on the 2200 block of 5th St. NE. They have heavy fire showing from the rear and in the cockloft of the building.
