Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed an anti-riot bill into law on Monday morning that protects police budgets from being cut and stiffens penalties against those arrested during a “riot.”

The new law also prevents “rioters” from being bailed out of jail before their first court appearance and grants immunity from civil legal action for people who drive through protesters blocking a road.
