Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Champions Legislation to Charge Criminal Rioters For Damages, Allow Victims to Sue Complicit Government Officials

This could be the strongest anti-riot legislation in the country.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced his support for new legislation penalizing those who engage in violent “protests” and criminal riots during a Monday press conference.

DeSantis spoke at the Polk County Sheriff’s Department headquarters on his support for new anti-riot legislation. He’s calling the package the Combating Violence, Disorder, and Looting Act, with another law called the Law Enforcement Protection Act.

The legislative package DeSantis revealed would enable felony charges to be filed against criminal rioters who carry out property damages against private or governmental property.

It would also allow for criminal charges to be filed against rioters who block public roadways under the guise of their stunt, a highly dangerous tactic favored by ANTIFA and BLM street criminals.

DeSantis’ proposal would make criminal rioters fully liable for property damages they create under the guise of political protest. Perhaps most significantly, it would allow those victimized by riots to sue government officials and obtain damages if they’re demonstrated to have failed in their duties to safeguard public safety. This provision would force Democratic officials who tacitly support BLM and ANTIFA mob action to enforce the laws against vandalism and destruction, even if they find it politically inconvenient.

It would make mob harassment-style action against private citizens a misdemeanor offense, with DeSantis citing video footage of BLM rioters aggressively berating restaurant patrons as an imperative for the law.

You see these videos of these innocent people eating dinner and you have these crazed lunatics just screaming at them and intimidating them,” DeSantis said. “You’re not going to do that in the state of Florida.

DeSantis’ proposal would also strip state funding from municipalities that defund their local police departments. It would require those who are arrested and charged with riot offenses to be held without bail until their initial court appearances, with DeSantis citing the instant catch-and-release of riot offenders in the dumpster fire of Portland as a rationale for the requirement.

This is almost certainly the strongest comprehensive anti-riot legislation advanced by a public official since the onset of BLM and ANTIFA’s wave of terror at the beginning of the summer. The Florida legislature should immediately move to pass the proposal, and other state governments should look to enact comparable legislation.

Man Who FIRED FIRST in Fatal Kenosha Shootout is Charged With Gun Crime by Wisconsin Prosecutors

Kyle Rittenhouse did not shoot first.

A man who shot a firearm at the fateful Kenosha, Wisconsin riot of August 25th has been charged with disorderly conduct and use of a dangerous weapon, according to new charging documents obtained by the Gateway Pundit.

Documents detailing charges against 35-year old Joshua Ziminski indicate that the man was seen on camera “holding a black handgun, which he was holding in his left hand, pointing downward. Detective Howard reports that in reviewing multiple other videos, he was able to see the defendant and Kelly Ziminski, in and around multiple other people on the streets, and the defendant was seen holding the handgun down at his side in said videos.

Kyle Rittenhouse, the militia-affiliated teenager since charged with multiple counts of murder, can be seen reacting to a gunshot- supposedly a “warning shot” moments before he was attacked by convicted child rapist Joseph Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse shot and killed Rosenbaum after a brief struggle over the AR-style rifle he was carrying. He shot two more leftist rioters who assailed him with guns and skateboards in the following moments.

Ziminski, who was present at the Jacob Blake race riot in Kenosha, would go on to admit to police investigating the Kenosha shootout that he had fired a “warning shot” that night. His actions appear to have been crucial in instigating violence during the criminal riot, and it’s entirely possible that Rosenbaum may not have attacked Rittenhouse if not for the sudden occurrence of a warning shot.

In another video, the defendant and Kelly are seen walking near a fire in the area of the Ultimate Gas Station lot. In later video, the defendant’s right arm is seen on the video, which is taken near 63rd Street and Sheridan Road, in the City and County of Kenosha, State of Wisconsin. Detective Howard reports the defendant’s arm pointing the gun upward towards the sky,” the charging document explains.

Detective Howard observed a muzzle flash emit from the handgun, and heard a gunshot at the same time. In another video, the defendant is clearly seen at that same location. The defendant is seen walking in the same area, holding his right arm upwards, and firing off one shot from his handgun. The defendant and his wife are then seen leaving the area. Several other people are in the nearby vicinity when the defendant fires the handgun.

Most (non-leftist) gun owners are broadly aware that firing a “warning shot” in a dangerous situation is a poor situation more likely to instigate violence than it is to prevent. This leftist thought he was going to coerce an armed teenager into behavior of one form or another by firing shots in the sky.
