BRADENTON, Fla. (WWSB) - Gov. Ron DeSantis spoke to reporters in Bradenton and took the opportunity to denounce the violence in the nation’s Capitol.

“it doesn’t matter whose banner you’re flying under, the violence is wrong,” DeSantis told the crowd.

The governor pointed out that his administration had created legislation to enforce stiff penalties against violent mobs following riots earlier in the year following the death of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.

DeSantis’ suggested “Combatting Violence, Disorder and Looting and Law Enforcement Protection Act” will be considered this legislative session in Tallahassee.
