Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who refuses to allow any COVID-19 safety rules, has drafted an “anti-mob” bill that would allow Floridians to shoot suspected looters and kill protesters who block traffic, if the vehicular killing is deemed unintentional, notes WOFL.
Denise Georges, a former Miami-Dade County prosecutor, told the Miami Herald how dangerous this idea is:
It allows for 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.
