Los Angeles Makes Face Masks Mandatory – Services Refused for Non-Compliant Citizens…

Comrades, the Los Angeles Ministry of Coronavirus Compliance has raised the standard, be prepared…. First they released 1,700 inmates.  Then the LA Sheriff shut down all the gun stores, saying they were not essential services. Then Mayor Garcetti announced he was shutting down water & electricity for anyone who attempts to defy the stay at home edicts.

Today it is announced…. Beginning April 10th, and extending until the directive is lifted, covering your face is mandatory in the Los Angeles, California Directorate.  Any citizen refusing to comply will be denied services:

Mercury News – Cloth face coverings will need to be worn at grocery and drug stores, construction sites, taxis and other essential businesses under a new order going into effect Friday, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said.

“If you’re shopping for groceries, if you’re picking up your prescription or if you’re visiting any other essential business you will need to cover your face,” Garcetti said during a daily briefing on Tuesday, April 7.

“And if you’re not covering your face by Friday morning,” the mayor said, “an essential business can refuse you service.”

The order goes into effect Friday, April 10, at midnight. (read more)

At first you are denied services.

Next you are fined for failing to comply.

Then comes the arrests.

All of it, soon coming to a city and state near you.

Comrade, your cooperation is appreciated….

      surprisingly, no a mask doesn’t reduce the sensitivity of the high end FCS tech….in fact, this was demonstrated in hong kong and bewildered many protestors who wore masks thinking this would help avoid detection…a very high number were in fact arrested and called out by name in the warrants issued!

      you can thank western technology groups here in the US for making that available to the chinese overlords….(thanks google for the geo-lo data too that helped match that up nicely…and thanks apple too! for the unique secure enclave features that are anchored to a specific unique user…)

      last year a few “radicals” in london decided to test the city wide surveillance apparatus…see if they could obfuscate identities…nope. they though donning a mask would do the trick…nope.

      same result. the technology used to determine a human profil with exactness is extraordinary and not well recognized by the ordinary folk…but it does exist and it’s been used in many cities right here in the US for quite some time.

      It’s all about BIG data. Everyone of us (most anyway) have certain digital histories …when we move about..that’s geo…and it can from from cell, bluetooth, NFC, or just the ordinary way, like cashier receipts and ATM’s and other purchases.

      if one really thinks they can defeat facial recognition…they don’t really understand how all sorts of data are used…automatically in real time, not requiring a human to intervene, …that it’s being done all the time…

      pretty soon, a new kind of black market is going to explode…it’s already there, but few really can afford it. basically, it’s a person spoofing system…think burner phone for imagery. how to “jam” surveillance goes one more step into the abyss.

      The “death rate” is completely fake anyway! The CDC changed the guidelines on March 24th so that almost any death, other than an obvious trauma type of accident, could be classified as “COVID related” because that way they could keep everyone cowering in their homes AND the states can then demand millions from the Feds via the CARES act.

      Then we will confiscate all the guns,

      We’ll outlaw those things, too. Actually, they all probably already are illegal. Our next step is a total lock-down, 24/7. Then you won’t be able to go anywhere at all. Except for the robbers. They’ll still be roaming around with weapons. They’ll come to you, wearing masks. And if anything happens, the cops will always have guns and they will arrest YOU for not wearing a mask.

    Civil rights are important, but there is another thing to think about: wearing a face mask (doesn’t have to be elaborate) will not do much to protect YOU, but it will contain most if not all of the spread of virus particles from YOU to OTHERS. My son the Doctor requires all patients and his staff to wear masks when in his office. He tells his patients: “Your mask protects *me* from *you*, and my mask protects *you* from *me*”. It’s annoying that our “leaders” feel empowered to make such pronouncements, but it makes good Public Health sense. I can do without the threats and penalties, however. It might be a better approach to appeal to the our tendency to care for others through educating the actual benefits of a mask.

    Here is a video from a group on Czechoslovakia that talks about the success they are having in combating the virus through a policy of “everyone outside wears a mask”.

      I am not great at sewing, and our fabric stores are all closed (the local Walmart’s stopped selling fabric years ago).

    If this fascist mayor gets reelected, it means either the citizens are morons (they are) or he has pleased the party leaders with his willingness to go full authoritarian and they are rewarding him for it. Remember, there are no more free and fair elections in this corrupt, one party state with ballot harvesting. He has no fear of the people, he knows he can never be held accountable.

    Hello, 911, we’ve just been robbed.

    Do you have a description of the robber?

    Yes, he’s tall, has a gun, and he’s wearing a mask.

      “HE?” How do you know it was a man?

      It’s politically incorrect to assume genders. We will be reassigning you until you graduate from the academy of re-education for sensitivity training. Of course you will still be receiving your salary as usual during your re-education. We care about staff development in our administration and in our department.
