A man identifying himself as Ace Burns told Fox News on Saturday that if New York officials didn't provide a satisfactory response to protests, he and others would commit more acts of violence.

New York City is under an 8 pm to 5 am curfew in an effort to keep peace in the streets amid George Floyd unrest; Jacqui Heinirch reports

"But if they don't, then [the] next stop is the Diamond District," he said, referring to a block on Manhattan's 47th Street known for jewelry shops. "And gasoline, thanks to Trump, is awfully cheap. So we're giving them a chance right now to do the right thing."HUGE CROWD GATHERS FOR GEORGE FLOYD MEMORIAL IN NORTH CAROLINA

When asked when the protests would end, the man said that was the wrong question. "The question should be what policies are we going to enact to make people feel safe?" The NYPD, mayor's office, and governor's offices did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

Can you respect black ? Black kill black too , the riots get respect ? Protesters the riots not police , police in jail , but riots still free , to respect black the protesters may go teaching the black

Murderers are also sanctioned by law. This time the rioting black people went to the shop to grab things. Can this character be respected by others? Negroes should protest Negro’s own character, the bad behavior of the riots, and change oneself to be respected by everyone.

terrorists how is all this propaganda not considered terrorist groups recruiting and making treats to our good peope!? Why are we not charging these idiots with their own battle cry of crimes committed in the name of hate? REALhateCRIMES
