It looks like a giant party at a mansion that ended with a fatal shooting has ruined it for the rest of Los Angeles. Now Mayor Eric Garcetti, as of Friday, is authorizing the city to shut off water and power to any house that hosts a party or large gathering. There’s no word on if indoor Black Lives Matter protests are still allowed, though.
BREAKING: L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti announces he is authorizing the city to shut off water and power to any houses or businesses that are hosting any parties or unauthorized large gatherings. It will begin Friday night, and LAPD will respond, then contact DWP to cut it off @FOXLA

The move comes after a massive mansion party took place in #BeverlyCrest on Monday night. It ended with a shooting that left one woman dead and two other critically injured. Police tell us the party on Mulholland Drive was gang related. The party was not broken up. @FOXLA pic.twitter.com/9mLJuwD8iB

This sounds like something Bill de Blasio would do … in Jewish neighborhoods.
Welcome to China.

You gotta fight for your right to party!
What a clown this guy is. Liberalism…it’s a mental disorder!

This is communist stuff. My Spanish teacher at the University of Miami was born and raised in Cuba, and they also send cops to your house when they think that you're having too many people over for company.

This is what an actual authoritarian government looks like but most of y’all will turn a blind eye.

I’m sure the motivated LAPD will get right on that for the guy stripping their benefits 😂

Does he realize that this blatantly violates fire code and insurance regulations?

These mayors and governors are having a BALL with all this power and it’s ridiculous to think this isn’t 100% about that.

“Unauthorized” would indicate that some will be authorized?

A government official denying access to public utilities?
This is quite the escalation, and may be illegal

I have to say the people on my community page in LA County would definitely think this is a good idea. They would probably agree to a mask patrol as well. They don't want their kids back in school and think you are an evil person if you disagree. No politics . Hate it

He clearly didn't think this all the way through.

They’ll shut off the water and power immediately?
The parties are in rented houses it seems …

Overstepping his authority

I believe a resident who is in good standing with their bills should be able to sue if they do cut off their water and power.

Wow… abuse of power on an epic scale.
No courage to call out protests but yeah… this.

What happened to 14 days wearing masks to flatten the curve?? Thought we did that in the 3-month shutdown of the country.

Eric Garcetti is a Democrat, for those playing at home.

Just how quickly does he think the water and electric crews will be able to pull this off? Or is the threat the point?
