L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that he ordered the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power to cut off the water and electricity to any homes, venues, or businesses in violation of COVID-19 safety measures.
In April, Garcetti enacted a similar order that applied to any non-essential businesses that defied his Safer at Home mandate.
The announcement comes just days after Los Angeles police responded to a gang related shooting at a large house party in Beverly Crest. According to Garcetti, this order will help limit peoples right to assemble.
Weve been clear from the beginning that getting together in groups outside of your household is not permitted, is not allowed. Weve asked Angelenos not to gather or have parties, Garcetti began.
By turning off that power, shutting off that water we feel we can close these places down, which usually are not one-time offenders but multiple-offenders, he added.

It’s very interesting watching mayors and governors making up rules etc and exerting their powers throughout this covid virus.......I’ve never seen so many acting on their own and often having little to do with the virus itself.
Leftist Nazi pr!#k.
The authority he has always possessed.
The Authority of Several Thousand Police Officer's Gun Barrels
Go ahead...try it. You will be creating a health, fire and safety hazard.
The mayor has no authority to cutoff utilities to individuals. Furthermore, in order to cutoff power to a single home, you have to visit the home and shut off power at the meter. Ditto with the water. It’s not like cable television where all someone has to do is type a few keystrokes into a computer to turn off service.
Which means that officers have to accompany utility workers to the home that is causing the trouble. So why not just have the officers deal directly with the unruly homeowners?
Solar Power, Pool Water, .....party on!
The greatest things to come of COVID it that it revealed all the closeted tyrants currently in elected office. We now know they can not be trusted to support liberty and freedom.
They will need more social workers, soon to be Gulag Recruiters.
“So why not just have the officers deal directly with the unruly homeowners?”
Because it’s none of their Fing business.
Are you okay with police showing up at people’s houses because they aren’t wearing masks?
As a matter of law, the Mayor of Los Angeles has no power to shut down anything, something he has admitted in the past.
(And throughout all of this the elected officials in the federal government, sworn by their individual oaths to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution" (I still presume -- though my confidence is waning -- this statement includes the rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights) remain mute, passive and, clearly, disinterested in how American citizens are being abused and harmed by politicians and unelected bureaucrats.
Even worse, many Americans -- Right and Left; women and former "men" -- comfortably go along with each new command issued by their "new daddies".
I fear that I’m destined for a Liberal Woke Re-education Camp myself.
March on his house - toss him out.
