Florida Governor Moves to Allow Citizens to Shoot ‘Looters’

Florida Governor Moves to Allow Citizens to Shoot ‘Looters’. Florida governor Ron DeSantis has drafted new “anti-mob” legislation to expand the state’s Stand Your Ground law. According to the ‘Miami Herald,’ the proposal would allow armed citizens to shoot “looters.”. The draft defines looting as burglary within 500 feet of a “violent or disorderly assembly.”. The proposal also justifies the use of force against people engaged in “criminal mischief” that causes “interruption or impairment” of a business. . In addition, DeSantis’ proposal would make it a third-degree felony to block traffic during a protest. . Drivers who claim to unintentionally kill or injure protestors blocking traffic would also receive immunity. . Denise Georges, a former Miami-Dade County prosecutor, said the proposal would allow vigilantes to “justify their actions.”. It also allows for death to be the punishment for a property crime — and that is cruel and unusual punishment. We cannot live in a lawless society where taking a life is done so casually and recklessly, Denise Georges, via ‘Miami Herald’
