A man who identified himself as “Ace Burns” was interviewed live on Fox News and said that if the leaders don’t listen to the protesters, they’ll take gasoline and go to the Diamond District. He’s been arrested tonight for his threat.
“..but if they don’t the next stop is the Diamond District, and gasoline.. thanks to Trump is awfully cheap.”
Watch the video below where Eric Shawn denounces the man’s threat:
“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 Eric Shawn was not pleased and called him out…”
“Today, I’m giving a demonstration from Barclay’s Center at 6 p.m. to City Hall, and that’s the first stop…and we’re hoping Mayor De Blasio and Gov. Cuomo come out and talk to us and give the youth some direction.”
“But if they don’t, then next stop is the Diamond District. And gasoline, thanks to Trump, is awfully cheap. So we’re giving them a chance right now to do the right thing.”
