The Potential Impact Of So-Called Anti-Rioting Bills
March 29, 2021
The death of George Floyd last year spurred protests across the country and in Indiana in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Since then, some local governments have introduced what they call anti-rioting legislation. But some say these bills could be used to stifle the right to protest.
Today we talk about an Indiana bill about rioting that was introduced earlier this year. We also learn about protest-related legislation that already exists here, and similar bills that have been proposed in other states.
