Riots: DeSantis creates bold legislation targeting criminals who ‘participate in violent or disorderly’ assemblies

Florida Gov Ron DeSantis

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced bold legislation Tuesday to target people participating in violent and disorderly riots that endanger human lives and businesses.

“We will always stand with our men and women in uniform who keep our communities safe,” Gov. Ron DeSantis

The legislation comes after people have been killed and billions of dollars have been lost in cities across the country overrun by rioting and looting since the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer in XXXX.

“Today I announced bold legislation that creates new criminal offenses and increases penalties for those who target law enforcement and participate in violent or disorderly assemblies,” stated DeSantis on Twitter.

“We will always stand with our men and women in uniform who keep our communities safe,” he added.

The new criminal offenses to ‘combat rioting, looting and violence’ were listed in a post on the governor’s Twitter.

In my opinion, it’s a much needed law that should be adopted across the nation to combat the growing violence.

According to reports the legislation will be filed for the March 2021 session. It couldn’t come soon enough. The new DeSantis’ law will also criminalize any threats by rioters to drivers by giving drivers new liability protection if they kill or injure anyone while “fleeing for safety.”

Think about it. This is more than likely going to get rioters to think twice before jumping on moving vehicles or targeting persons driving vehicles in crowed places with weapons as we’ve seen happen over the past several months.

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
