Florida Governor Ron DeSantis won’t abide looters in the Sunshine State —and he’s issued a stern warning to anyone thinking about taking advantage of people affected by Hurricane Ian.
“The other thing that we are concerned about, particularly in those areas that were really hard hit is that we want to make sure that we are maintaining law and order,” the governor explained. Looting has been a common occurrence in disaster-ridden areas following hurricanes.
“Don’t even think about looting, don’t even think about taking advantage of people in this vulnerable situation,” DeSantis explained, adding, “So local law enforcement is involved and monitoring that.”
“If the state needs to help as well because you can have people bring in boats in some of these islands and try to ransack people’s homes,” he emphasized. “I can tell you, in the state of Florida you may never know what is lurking behind somebody’s home and I wouldn’t want to chance that if I were you given that we are a Second Amendment state.”
