NBC Trying to gin up race riots ahead of November election

Activists and faith leaders are preparing for what could happen if defendant Jason Van Dyke, who is white, walks free.
Demonstrations are certain, they say, but they are also adamant about avoiding the kind of chaos and violence that have marked other race-related cases, from Los Angeles after the Rodney King beating in 1992 to Baltimore after Freddie Gray's death in 2015.
"This trial will be a powder keg," said activist Eric Russell, who is black. "There are people who are extremists — they believe in an eye for an eye, the 'Chicago way.' But that's something that we certainly don't want, no matter what happens."

Is this a self fulfilling prophecy? Is it just a coincidence they are hyping this trial right before the election? I bet if there are riots Donald Trump probably won't say anything about them and the media won't call him a white supremacist for the things he won't say, right?
