Why weren’t SOS Cuba protesters in Miami arrested under Florida’s new anti-riot law?

“I think people understand the difference between going out and peacefully assembling, which is obviously people’s constitutional right,” DeSantis said on a day when South Floridians stood in solidarity with Cuban citizens’ protests by taking to the Palmetto Expressway and closing it down for hours.

What’s happening here is politics colliding with practice.

The anti-riot law was one of several championed by DeSantis appealing to his conservative base in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests — a law now being broken by the governor’s own supporters, and on roads under state jurisdiction.
