SITREP: Penalties for several riot-related crimes have been proposed in Florida. RICO (Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organization act) considerations are in place for riot organizers, among other penalties.

RECOMMENDATION: Be careful in Florida attending or participating in protests that are likely to devolve into violence. Be sure to maintain a strong sense of law and order if engaging in protests or activism.
