Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday announced a tough, new take on handling “violent and disorderly” protests in the state with the “Combatting Violence Disorder and Looting and Law Enforcement Protection Act.”
Standing at a podium at Polk County Sheriff’s Office headquarters, DeSantis was flanked by about two dozen county sheriffs and police chiefs from throughout the state, including Polk Sheriff Grady Judd, Gilchrist County Sheriff Bobby Shultz, president of the Florida Sheriffs Association, and Satellite Beach Police Chief Jeff Pearson, president of the Florida Police Chiefs Association.
As usual for Grady Judd, who recently suggested residents had their firearms at the ready in case they were besieged, he made a good point with his visual aids demonstrating the differences between a Peaceful Protest and a Non-peaceful protest. He also points out that if you loot, the next thing you’ll steal will be off a food tray at the County Jail!!!
