Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis announced a law he is proposing where rioters will face harsh penalties and city leaders who encourage rioting will be liable for damages.
FOX News Reported yesterday:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday announced a new law to counter violent protests that have rocked the state and country since the police custody death of George Floyd in late May.
DeSantis’ announcement came during a press conference at the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Under the new law, anyone found guilty of throwing objects at police and law enforcement officers would be subject to a minimum six-month jail sentence. It also imposes felony penalties for protesters who block roadways, topple monuments or harass people.
“There’s going to be a ton of bricks raining down on you,” DeSantis said of protesters who break the law.
For those who can’t tell the difference between protests and riots, a Florida sheriff provided guidance:
