Riot Act 1714 (1 Geo.1 St.2 c.5) was an Act of the Parliament of Great Britain authorizing local authorities to declare unduly reunited and to disperse or impose sanctions. The long title of the law was “A Law to Prevent Riots and Agitated Gatherings and to Punish Rioters More Quickly and Effectively,” and it came into force on August 1, 1715.  It was repealed in England and Wales by Section 10(2) and Part III of Act 3 of the Criminal Law Act 1967. Laws similar to the Riot Act were incorporated into the laws of the British colonies in Australia, Canada and America, some of which still exist today. The law set up a mechanism for some local officials to make a proclamation that ordered the dispersal of a group of more than twelve people who were “illegally assembled, insurgent and tumultuous.” If the group failed to disperse within an hour, all those who remained gathered were guilty of a crime that benefited the clergy and was punished with death.

He cursed the police, talked about how to fight and kill them, and generally advocated violent means to achieve political goals. The court decided that a person who has agreed with others to organize a future insurrection and who commits an open act in accordance with the agreement is not guilty of sedition, but of conspiracy. The Riot Act caused confusion during the Gordon Riots of 1780, when authorities did not feel able to take steps to stop the riots without reading the Riot Act. .
