After the conviction of Derek Chauvin in the murder of George Floyd brought some sense of justice to people who worked hard in protesting against police brutality. While one would think that this nation has left the hate behind, this video of a man trying to ax down the George Floyd’s Memorial site might make you think otherwise.

The man at first goes to the site in his pickup truck and starts rampaging his way through. The site, which is located a block away from where George Floyd had actually died, in Minneapolis, was unguarded at 2 AM, when the man decided to strike and thinking of going unchecked.

He removes the barricades, and then rips off the ‘Black Lives Matter’ sign. He continues pushing and tearing things about, until he gets to the wooden shed. He turns back, gets an ax, and starts chopping it down.

Luckily, his activity had caused enough noise in the neighborhood that people started to take notice. They told him to run away, and he had no choice but to comply. The man was so scared that he ended up leaving his ax behind.

TMZ reports with the camera footage of the incident that was captured. Despite the rampaging, the George Floyd Square’s Instagram account posted a photo of the shed fully well and unharmed in response to the man’s hateful act.

The police has been reported of this incident, and they’re working to find the culprit behind this hatred. Even though Derek Chauvin’s conviction is a massive win for the BLM community, hate crimes are their next biggest challenges to overcome.
