LA Mayor To Cut Off Water & Power Of “Irresponsible, Selfish” Stores That Remain Open

By Tyler Durden

Earlier, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva ordered all gun stores closed  (fearing that too many first-time gun-owners were getting access to weapons), and now LA Mayor Eric Garcetti lashed out at non-essential stores that refuse to close, making an ominous threat.

After reflecting on the first COVID-19 death of a teenager in L.A. County, he went on to announce actions against nonessential businesses that don’t 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 water and power 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.

“The easiest way to avoid a visit is to follow the rules,” he said.

This all seems to be accelerating down the extremely slippery slope towards full authoritarian control – something the politicians will be unwilling to easily give up once this crisis blows through.

Finally, 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… We need to be prepared for some of the darkness that is ahead.”

L.A. County had 669 confirmed coronavirus cases as of Tuesday, with 11 deaths. The state had 2,566 cases with 51 deaths.
