I’ve been saying we need a law like this for a LONG time!
After watching countless people literally drug out of their cars by an angry and violent ANTIFA and BLM mob, I’ve been saying this has to stop.
No American should be forced to stay in their car surrounded by a mob with no options for escape.
If a mob is swarming your car, you should 100% be allowed to put the PEDAL TO THE MEDAL and high tail it right out of there!
And before any bleeding heart lib tries to cry about “fascism” or some other nonsense, let me give you some really great advice….
There are no guarantees in life, they say, other than death and taxes.
But I have a THIRD guarantee you cana take to the bank!
I 100% GUAR-AN-TEE that you will never, and I mean EVVVVVVER, get run over by a car if you chooose not to join a mob, block traffic and attack people in their cars!
No one has ever been ran over while minding their own business peacefully in their house.
So I applaud Gov. DeSantis and I’d love to see this spread to all 50 states or a federal law or Executive Order passed by President Trump allowing the same thing!
Take a look:
From the Orlando Sentinel:
Florida leaders plan to crack down on protesters involved in what Gov. Ron DeSantis called “disorderly assemblies,” including making it a felony to block a road, topple monuments or gather in a small group where violence breaks out.
DeSantis on Monday proposed a tough new law, which opponents swiftly labeled unconstitutional, in response to demonstrations that erupted nationwide after the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer. The legislation will be filed for the next session that convenes in March.
The law would include minimum six-month jail terms for anyone found guilty of throwing an object at law enforcement officers. It would also define as felonies blocking roadways, taking down monuments, or harassing people in public, among other things.
Seven or more people “involved in an assembly [that causes] damage to property or injury to other persons" would be committing a felony, and city and counties that try to defund the police would lose their state funding.
Another provision would shield drivers from liability “for injury and death caused if fleeing for safety from a mob.”
“Our right to peacefully assemble is one of our most cherished as Americans, but throughout the country we’ve seen that right being taken advantage of by professional agitators, bent on sowing disorder and causing mayhem in our cities,” DeSantis said. “I will not allow this kind of violence to occur here in Florida.”
Stephanie Porta, executive director of the progressive group Organize Florida, called the proposal “an election stunt focused on tamping down current protests that are being planned around the Supreme Court, as well as people getting into the streets to demand that every ballot gets counted. … This is out there to absolutely scare people into not using their constitutional rights for freedom of speech.''
"We should be clear when we’re talking about this: this is not law, and it’s not going to be law,'' Porta added. "It’s not constitutional, and we’re going to stop it from passing in the Legislature.”
Protests over Floyd’s death and other police shootings went on for weeks in cities across Florida and the U.S., and some turned violent with looting, destruction of Confederate monuments and confrontations with authorities. In Portland, Oregon, federal law enforcement was sent in by the Trump administration to quell the violence.
Here's a Zoom In on the full proposal:
And from Newsweek:
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Monday introduced legislation that could remove legal repercussions for those "fleeing" from a "mob" by using their cars to run over protesters at demonstrations.
DeSantis included the provision as part of a new law dubbed the Combatting Violence, Disorder and Looting and Protecting Law Enforcement Act. One part of the law aims to criminalize certain protests occurring on roads, creating a third-degree felony for those who "obstruct traffic during an unpermitted protest, demonstration or violent or disorderly assembly,"
"[The law will] require a felony if you incapacitate any of the roadways," DeSantis said during a press conference. "We see people take over interstates. That is absolutely hazardous. It's not fair to motorists who get caught up in that, so that will be unacceptable."
While protesters blocking traffic would be potentially be committing a felony, the law would could also make it legal to commit what might otherwise be considered vehicular murder or manslaughter.
"Driver is NOT liable for injury or death caused if fleeing for safety from a mob," the proposal states.
The proposal does not include any definition of what constitutes a "mob." Andrew Gillum, the Democratic former mayor of Tallahassee who narrowly lost to DeSantis in the 2018 election, called for legal action to stop the governor while noting that the law could effectively legalize murder in some instances.
"This legislation would have legalized the murder of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville," Gillum tweeted, referring to the 2017 incident that saw a white supremacist drive his car into a crowd of counterprotesters during a Virginia "Unite the Right" rally.
The law would also introduce a third-degree felony for those who participate in a "violent or disorderly assembly" protest while causing property damage or injury to others. Protesters who try to "destroy or topple a monument" could be charged with a second-degree felony. RICO racketeering liability would be added for "anyone who organizes or funds a violent or disorderly assembly."
Striking or throwing an object at a law enforcement officer during a violent or disorderly protest would be subject to a 6-month mandatory minimum jail sentence. In addition, the law would prohibit local governments from attempting to "defund the police," with any area that "slashes the budget" of police being cut off from state funds.
