Los Angeles Mayor Shutting Off Water And Power For ‘Non-Essential’ Businesses That Haven’t Closed

(Gateway Pundit) – Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has announced that the city will be shutting off water and power to any non-essential businesses that defied orders and stayed open during the coronavirus crisis.

During his Tuesday press briefing Garcetti announced that the Department of Water and Power will be shutting off services for the businesses that don’t comply with the “safer at home” ordinance.

“This behavior is irresponsible and selfish,” Garcetti said of businesses that remained open.

KTLA reports that 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.

The mayor also noted that Los Angeles is “six to 12 days behind New York” for being hit with a wave of coronavirus cases. He said that he does not believe his city will be running as normal by Easter.

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

The grimness of his press conference did not end there. He also warned residents to be “prepared for some of the darkness that is ahead.”

“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,” he added.

  1. California used to be one helluva beautiful State, but it now serves as a bad example of what 50 years of democratic socialism and progressive politics will do to a place by way of the people who live there! It CAN BE beautiful again, but only by a purge of every Democrat and progressive socialist policy now in effect there! By the way, one can purge all the practitioners of said policies in order to guarantee the desired results!

  2. Is he related to Mussolini? Is he doing even to shop owners who are cleaning, doing
    repairs, other maintenance and/or remodeling while their shop is closed? Since this a good time to do things that were put off to another time.

  3. I’m soo glad I don’t live in LA!!!

    My sister lives in a canyon town SE of LA and she can’t wait to leave that area too. She is moving to the eastern area of CA but AWAY FROM LA and SF, two hellholes even She can’t stand.

    I love to visit my sister but would NOT reside in CA, that’s for sure.
