Claiming people are being paid to riot, Republican state senators voted Wednesday to give police new power to arrest anyone who is involved in a peaceful demonstration that may turn bad — even before anything actually happened.
SB1142 expands the state’s racketeering laws, now aimed at organized crime, to also include rioting. 
And it redefines what constitutes rioting to include actions that result in damage to the property of others.

    Nobody in this country seems to protest worthwhile causes now, it seems that all the protestors are criminals who are protesting laws and their right to not be subject to them.

    I wish it was legal for cops, in a riot situation, to shoot to kill anyone who brandishes a weapon, breaks a window, snatches someone elses property, sets a fire, or commits an assault.
