Sometimes, those ‘man on the street’ interviews net you more than you expected and sometimes lead to a whole new story. This is one such time.
A protester was stopped in New York to answer some questions. The answers he gave Jacqui Heinrich included an explicit threat of violence.
See for yourself. If policy changes don’t meet his demands, he’s said his plan is to go down to the Diamond District and burn it down.
A protester in New York made a threat *on live tv* to go down to the ‘Diamond District’ in New York with gasoline if they don’t get want they want from state and local officials. Fox News @EricShawnTV was not pleased and called him out… pic.twitter.com/dgt7p4buzG

Live on Fox, a BLM leader just threatened to burn down New York’s Diamond District. If Blas and Cuo don’t engage with us, he said, we will head to the Diamond District, “and thanks to President Trump, gasoline is cheap.”
This is dead-serious. It’s time for a decisive crackdown.

Mark Levin has some thoughts…
While Sharpton is busy riding the coattails of Floyd’s untimely demise, this incident brings his disreputable history back into the conversation.
A BLM organizer just went on Fox News and said he would lead a march to the "Diamond District." Anyone with even 1/2 a brain knows that is an attack on Jews.

Cops caught up with him…
Earlier tonight, a man wearing this mask threatened, in a live @FoxNews interview, to burn Manhattan’s diamond district down. Within hours, we identified the man & took him in to be interviewed. pic.twitter.com/NHggPloCAv

One tip says this is the same guy:
A little bird has unmasked the protester who threatened to burn down the Diamond District with details of his IG and Twitter, where he posted this video to “start a revolution.” pic.twitter.com/G7Oi0k8zcN
