Tucker Carlson, in his own inimitable way, expressed what took place at the Chauvin trial (via RedState):
The jury in the Derek Chauvin trial came to a unanimous and unequivocal verdict Tuesday afternoon: “Please don’t hurt us.” The jurors spoke for many in this country; everyone understood perfectly well the consequences of an acquittal in this case.
After nearly a year of burning, looting, and murder by BLM, that was never in doubt. Last night, 2,000 miles from Minneapolis, police in Los Angeles preemptively blocked roads. Why? They knew what would happen if Derek Chauvin got off.
But here’s what we can’t debate: no mob has the right to destroy our cities. Not under any circumstances, not for any reason. No politician or media figure has the right to intimidate a jury, and no political party has the right to impose a different standard of justice on its own supporters.
Those things are unacceptable in America, but all of them are happening now. If they continue to happen, decent, productive people will leave. The country as we knew it will be over. So we must stop this current insanity. It’s an attack on civilization.
Here's the full segment:
Law professor Jonathan Turley has an article on Chauvin's prospects on appeal, with extra focus exactly those issues that Tucker was addressing:

However, these introductory paragraphs give a good idea of what the issues on appeal will be. Follow the link for more discussion:
Thomas Lifson--editor at American Thinker, but I found this article at LifeSite--discusses the Left's tactics going forward:
Once the organized rioters spread to affluent neighborhoods, fear will grip a much wider swath of society than before.
The entire article is worth your time. Here's the conclusion which, if true, is fraught with consequences for this country:
Once the organized rioters spread to affluent neighborhoods, fear will grip a much wider swath of society than before. My guess is that it will trigger a backlash. But so pervasive is the propaganda urging white people to feel guilt that I cannot be confident that this will be the net effect.
The summer, AKA riot season, threatens to be even worse than last year.
I found this graphic below particularly telling. White supremacy seems very much in evidence on the Left--due especially to what appears to be a total absence of Hispanics and Asians:
