Riot Law Clears Hurdle

People attending a rally…who end up accused of violating an anti-riot law…could be targeted with a provision, normally used against terroristic activity…all this…under GOP legislation in the Ohio House. This comes in response to police brutality protests in summer 2020. The bill also would increase penalties for rioting, create the offenses of riot assault and riot vandalism. It will also make it illegal to harm someone, based on their status as a first responder. The bill passes along party lines.
