A Senator from the US state of Minnesota has introduced legislation that prevents people convicted of crimes in connection with a protest from being eligible for government benefits such as grocery stamps, unemployment benefits, and student loans.
Senator David Osmek, a Republican, unveiled the bill amid months of unrest in and around Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd in 2020 and, more recently, Daunte Wright last week.
NBC reports that anyone convicted under the law would not be able to:
“Any type of government loan, grant, or assistance, including, but not limited to, student loans and grants, rental and mortgage assistance, supplemental nutritional assistance, unemployment benefits and other employment assistance, Minnesota assistance programs, corporate grants, medical assistance, general assistance, and energy assistance. “
A Minnesota GOP legislature proposed a law to ban anyone convicted of crimes in protesting against relief items such as food stamps and student loans.

Minnesota law has almost no chance of getting passed since the governor is a Democrat and Democrats control the state assembly.
But it is not the first bill that Republicans have introduced after ongoing unrest in various parts of the country.

Florida governor signs anti-riot law
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) signed the bill on Monday, calling it “the strongest counterinsurgency and law enforcement measure in the country”.
The bill to combat public disorder, as Governor DeSantis said, “puts an end to the bullying and intimidation tactics of the radical left”. The law increases penalties for those who commit crimes during a riot.
When Governor DeSantis signed the bill, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd didn’t chop up words about how Floridians think of their state and how they intend to keep it as it is.
“Watch out, we have a new law and we will apply it if you get us to. We will protect the people. “The sheriff wasn’t done yet:
“That’s what we enjoy in Florida,” he said. “This is the Florida we know and love.”
“Welcome to Florida! But don’t register to vote and vote like you did in the north, you will get what they have! “

Other states after complaint
Citizens of other countries also seem to have had enough of illegal protests and unrest.
According to the International Center for Nonprofit Law, 29 states have passed some sort of anti-riot legislation with Florida.
In Arkansas, hindering or disturbing first responders is a Class A misdemeanor. Oklahoma has penalties for protests against private property, Tennessee fines protesters who block traffic, and West Virginia police are not liable for deaths while riots and illegal gatherings are dispersed.
The bottom line is that the demonstrators may want to familiarize themselves with the law they are protesting against.

Incitement to unrest, which even members of Congress will not tolerate
The Liberal Democratic flamethrower Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) may have more problems than usual.
Waters made controversial statements after joining the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd.
Waters urged protesters to “become more confrontational” if Chauvin was found not guilty. “We have to make sure they know we mean business. We’re looking for a guilty verdict. “
Several Republicans, including House minority leader Kevin McCarthy, and four House members from Minnesota, have called for their criticism and even their expulsion from the House of Representatives.
MP Marjorie Taylor Greene has tabled a resolution to expel Waters from the House.
Democrats stood by Waters and insisted she did not incite or encourage violence.
