Looks like DeSantis is taking an easy path of pandering to make him look tough on crime that is fairly non-existent in his state.



You said ^^^

Context is everything; so crime and the potential for a WORLDWIDE televised trial (with insurrections of violence by democratic leaders) leading to riots is not a real threat to people in almost every major city ?????

Why are you running cover for those who are known forWhy are you running cover for those who are known for terrorizing innocent law abiding citizens??


They haven't been terrorizing innocent law abiding citizens in Florida.


And they won’t be

Does it upset you that terrorist organisations like aNtifa and bLM are not able to attack innocent women and children in Florida now?

You poor thing

Good,

I am glad someone in a position of Authority has a damned clue and has the will to actually address these riots and the rioters with consequences for their lawless actions and blatant crimes.

+ 1 for Governor DeSantis.

www.newsweek.com...



The bill cracks down on protesters accused of participating in riots, defacing historical monuments, as well as obstructing highways and streets. The bill also deems "mob intimidation"—defined as attempting to induce someone into doing an act or adopting a particular viewpoint—as unlawful.

Assaulting police officers "in furtherance of a riot" is punishable with a six-month minimum jail sentence.


www.clickorlando.com...



The law penalizes local governments who would look to defund their police departments and makes them liable for damage if elected leaders “tell law enforcement to stand down,” according to the governor.


“If you harm others, particularly if you harm, a law enforcement officer during one of these violent assemblies, you’re going to jail,” DeSantis said.

Interesting they put forth legal definitions and penalties against such.
Seems the proper way to go about such.
The state legislators had more to do with this than the governor.

Wait? What? Political orgs and movements like BLM and Antifa were attacking innocent women and children in Florida before this? How will this law stop anyone from attacking innocent women and children in Florida? Wasn't that already illegal?

Yes it was

Terrorist organisations like aNtifa and bLM are not allowed to commit terrorism or carry out insurrections

Which also seems to upset you

Why?

How do you figure? Are you ever not so cynical and confrontational? (double negative) for your countless double standards.
How do I figure what? I asked a question about what DeSantis said.

Was it legal to do harm to someone, including law enforcement officers, before this law was enacted?


Yes, Phage. Yes, it's still illegal. I realize that you live in a black and white world and you need clear signals and direction.
Yes, Phage, it is still wrong to hurt people outside of your run-of-the-mill riot. I'm sorry I had to be the one to tell you this. You have been warned.

Videos of violent confrontations between Black spring breakers and police officers circulated around Twitter over the weekend. In one video, officers were trying to disperse a crowd after a fight broke out.

As two men began to walk away, an officer grabbed one by the arm. When the spring breaker snatched his arm away, both of the men were tackled by several MBPD officers. While the men were being arrested, other officers shot pellets to disperse the crowd. The two men were later charged with resisting arrest without violence.


Sorry, but that is not a description of a riot. Student breakers getting drunk and fighting is not the same as a the kind of riot DeSantis is talking about here.

And, yes there is police brutality in Florida. But, it hasn't led to riots, yet. The last riot in Florida, that I can find, was over a Cuban refugee, who was a minor and his father wanted him to come back home to Cuba.

Just admit you’re wrong, and have only double standards to guide you.

Of course all those laws were in place already but this bill just signed into law does this:

The bill, which covers 61 pages, makes several changes to Florida criminal and administrative law, and will:

•Make it more difficult for cities and counties to reduce funding for law enforcement, allowing local elected officials to challenge those budget decisions, and giving the state power to approve or amend the local budget

•Allow those local governments to be sued if they fail to stop a riot

•Define “riot” as a violent public disturbance involving 3 or more people acting with common intent resulting in injury to others, damage to property, or the imminent danger of injury or damage

•Enhance penalties for people who commit crimes during a riot

•Create a new second-degree felony called an “aggravated riot,” which occurs when the riot has more than 25 participants, causes great bodily harm or more than $5,000 in property damage, uses or threatens to use a deadly weapon, or blocks roadways by force or threat of force

Now if anything sounds redundant, stop harassing us and call Florida.👍

So?

And now that terrorist groups like bLM are NOT allowed to riot there, it upsets you

Why is that? You openly support the ‘riot’ that occurred on the 6th of Jan and now your upset that states are legislating against them

There has not been a lynching for many many years

Do you oppose the anti lynching laws?

Well, I can't find a single riot, or "protest gone wild" in Florida since 2003, over Elian Gonzales.


Are your research skills weak, or are you just disingenuous? I spent 30-seconds looking up this topic and already found 1/2:

Tallahassee Man Arrested For Inciting Violence At The Florida Capitol Building

and this 2/2:

twitter.com...



#YourMBPD is working hard to keep our community safe. Since Friday, we have made over 50 arrests and confiscated 8 firearms. We’d like to thank all of our partner law enforcement agencies for their efforts and support. #MBPDprotecting #CollaborationIsKey

Enhanced penalties then. DeSantis could have expressed himself better.

I'm sure any potential rioters will think twice now. Good job.

Again, this is not a riot.
While some rioters do vandalize, not all vandalism is caused by riots.

It's disturbing how many of you think this new Florida riot law applies to drunkin brawls, vandalism and graffiti.
