LA Mayor Garcetti Goes Full Dictator – Will Shut Down Water and Power For Those Who Defy “Stay At Home” Order…

First they released 1,700 inmates.  Then the LA Sheriff shut down all the gun stores, saying they were not essential services…. Now LA Mayor Garcetti announces he will shut down water and electricity for anyone who attempts to defy the stay at home edicts.

…”The easiest way to avoid a visit” from the LA storm-troopers “is to follow the rules”… “Your behavior can save a life” Garcetti said, “And that life could be yours.”…

The official “neighborhood prosecutors” have been assigned. The LA Directorate of Coronavirus Compliance has now been activated.  Choose carefully comrade citizen.  That’s a nice place you’ve got there, it’d be a shame if anything happened to it..

Los Angeles – […] He reminded young people that the virus can hit them too, urging them to stay at home and practice social distancing.

“Your behavior can save a life and take a life,” Garcetti said. “And that life could be yours.”

The mayor addressed President Trump’s remarks from earlier Tuesday about having the nation “opened up and just raring to go by Easter.” Garcetti said he didn’t think L.A. would be back to normal “in that short time.”

“We won’t extend it one day longer than we need to,” Garcetti said, but emphasized that the “safer at home” measure had to be followed through.

The mayor said L.A. is six to 12 days behind New York in being hit with a wave of positive cases.

“The peak is not here yet,” he said. “It will be bad.”

Garcetti emphasized the need for medical workers who can test, treat, heal and tend to coronavirus patients. He announced that together with L.A. County, the city has opened up a portal for medical personnel recruitment, with both paid and pro-bono positions.

“We need to be prepared for some of the darkness that is ahead,” the mayor said. “Each one of us can be a light. We can light a match of hope. We can navigate that tunnel with each other and not alone. And more importantly, what we do can ensure that more people exit that tunnel together… and that our city will rise again.”

The mayor went on to announce the “business ambassadors program” — an effort to get nonessential businesses to close.

“This behavior is irresponsible and selfish,” he said of those that remain open.

He said the Department of Water and Power will shut off services for the businesses that don’t comply with the “safer at home” ordinance.

Neighborhood prosecutors will implement safety measures and will contact the businesses before issuing further action, according to Garcetti.  (read more)

      I live in L.A., and the last thing we need is our leaders using language like “it will be bad” and “the darkness ahead.” All that does is scare people, and makes them continue to panic shop, and encourages social shaming because everyone’s convinced the apocalypse is coming. He’s being irresponsible. You can communicate the seriousness of something while also offering words of encouragement and hope. Trump’s been doing that, and these Democrats have everyone in our city scared to death. The situation really isn’t that bad. I may have to move back home to TN and get away from this nonsense.

    I’m generally one to think twice before getting on board globalist conspiracy stuff, but leave an open seat on that bus for me.

    It’s become clear that the democrat party is fully invested in creating an economic depression and using a virus as their vehicle. As another poster here stated, something like what is being done here has never been done before. No prior society has shut down their economy and ability of its citizens to move freely due to a virus that relative to other health crisis’ has done very little damage.

    And on the world stage, if I read correctly, New Zealand is shutting down their country despite not even one death due to the Wuhan virus. No sane nation does something like that unless there’s a bigger agenda working behind the scenes.

    This is a little bit off subject but it does show how badly some people are acting.

    Tuesday morning I went to the Winn Dixie supermarket in Callahan here in NE Florida. The butcher had just put out some two pound size packs of hamburger five minutes before. there was almost a stampede and there there were now only three packs left.

    A very elderly and frail little black lady was reaching for a pack when a big fat 300 plus pound pig of a woman about 35 years old walked up snatched all three packs and put them in her cart. This when she could obviously see the old lady reaching for one. The look on that little old ladies face almost made me cry.

    The fat pig turned back to the counter and was reaching for some Italian sausages. I saw my chance and picked up one of the packs from her cart and put it into the dear little old ladies cart. She gave me the biggest smile, turned around and got the Hell out of the meat isle as fast as she could as did I before fat ass discovered what had happened.

    I asked my wife when I got home how could any human being act that way? she answered, “The woman was likely a democrat,” Good answer !!!

    • It’s corny of me to make a “Matrix” reference, but these “Stay-at-Home/Work-From-Home” mandates bring us one step closer to becoming an entire population that is “Plugged-In and Productive” but is (in essence) a “cheap date” who no longer requires traditional, expensive, infrastructure. Why fill potholes if no one drives?

      But it is also a very blunt and brutally stark warning that California has gone dangerously too far with their progressive policy advocacy AND implementation.

      The current Marxist (they call themselves “progressive”) leaders – ELECTED by a truly unwitting and mal-educated electorate – have now deliberately detonated a torpedo in the ship of civility, law and order.

      Whether that ship will founder remains to be seen, but it is now taking on water.

        Not to be too cynical, but maybe the lefties started circulating a memo about how convenient some “gun violence” might be right now, something that’s always just around the corner in their minds. Why shut down sales? Full disclosure: I’m confident that there are a couple dozen powerful people, some employed at CNN, patting each other on the back right now for triggering the current retail food (and TP) crisis. So, for what it’s worth, yeah, I might be a bit paranoid.

      The Sheriff maintained that he believes gun stores should not be open to the general public right now because he feels there are too many first time buyers making panic purchases of guns they don’t know how to operate and they aren’t familiar with California’s strict laws.
      “You can’t shoot a virus,” Villanueva said.

      Typical leftists. They always think they know better than us.

      No, Sheriff Villanueva, you can’t shoot a virus, and you know damn well that’s NOT why people want to buy guns. They want to be able to scare away or, if that fails, to shoot any intruder who breaks into their home to steal their possessions and supplies and by so doing endangers the lives of them and their family. Police cannot protect the public because they NEVER (or rarely ever) get to a crime scene BEFORE the crime happens.

  25. Benjamin Franklin said that those who would give up liberty for safety deserve neither, and he is right. Public officials, having told us all that the sky is falling, are now testing the waters to see just how much tyranny the people will momentarily accept. They will continue to stoke the fears that this cold virus is somehow the Black Death, while continuing to grope the limits of their new-found power.

    And, they will continue to do so until the people finally and decisively push back. Hundreds of people on that cruise ship “tested positive,” had no symptoms then, and never did. Tom Hanks is still alive – he had a cold. It’s fairly obvious that the contagion first named in China was not what they thought it was, and was not as isolated as they thought it was. Sailors on an aircraft carrier that’s been at sea for months “tested positive.” It turns out that there’s a lot of junk epidemiology going on here … and a lot of actual actions by public officials which would fill the pages of a dystopian novel.

    We never reacted to the actual contagion. We reacted only to the fear of it. And, in response to those fears, our public officials did very fearful things.

    When our new power company got around to replacing the old gas lines, after they bought our old power company, they moved all the equipment outside of the house, for “safety”.
    Yes, there was a risk when utility workers could not get inside a building to shut off gas lines during a natural disaster.
    However, there were warnings that just such a scenario of being cut off for using too much or whatever, might occur.
    Also, in areas where the gas supply to the house is right next to the neighbor’s driveway, there are now new safety risks.
    This isn’t about the disease. This has been coming since well before 9/11.
