Second 6 P.M. Los Angeles County Curfew In Place Countywide Monday

A second 6 p.m. Los Angeles County curfew has been put into place, including Santa Clarita, on Monday following looting in several cities across Southern California, officials said.

The Monday L.A. County curfew has been set for the entire Los Angeles County area from 6 p.m. Monday, June 1 to 6 a.m. Tuesday, June 2 after the first curfew was put into place the day before.

To ensure a “timely departure” of all residents before the 6 p.m. curfew, all Los Angeles County golf courses, trails, community gardens, community and regional parks are set to close at 4 p.m. Monday.

The curfew in Los Angeles County does not apply to individuals going to or from work, those experiencing homelessness and without a viable shelter and those seeking medical treatment, according to the action.

The Los Angeles County curfew also does not apply to peace officers, firefighters, the National Guard or any other military personnel, according to the order.

Anyone found in violation of the L.A. County curfew is subject to a misdemeanor charge, punishable by a $1,000 fine, imprisonment not exceeding six months, or both, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

Supervisor Kathryn Barger, who represents the fifth district including Santa Clarita, has declared a state of emergency after looting and other crimes have been reported throughout the county.

“This emergency comes as we are in the midst of battling another emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This taxes our resources, but not our resolve,” Barger said. “We will do everything in our power to keep our communities safe and protect lives and property. I continue to call on our residents to maintain calm and seek solutions productively, not destructively.”

Hundreds of demonstrators in Santa Clarita gathered to protest Saturday.

At the time, the Watch Commander on duty at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, Lt. Ethan Marquez, addressed the crowd of protesters outside the station just before noon, stating that there were “peaceful” protesters.

The L.A. County state of emergency would allow the County to “mobilize local resources, coordinate interagency response, accelerate procurement of vital supplies, use of mutual aid, and allow for future reimbursement by the state and federal governments will be critical in successfully responding to this emergency.”

The state of emergency is set to last up to seven days, but it can be extended if ratified by the full County Board of Supervisors.

“This is a time for us to come together to stand against injustice in ways that will make us stronger as a County and as a nation,” Barger said. “If you are assembling to protest, please do so peacefully and with respect for all those who are suffering.

  1. Being homeless and sheltering in place is the best option! I’ll get a free room at the Super 8 on Sierra Hwy., and collect points and earn Diamond status with Wyndham Rewards!
    I’m dreaming of Hawaii with all the points that I earned – free!

    From my comfy king-size bed, I’ll be able to watch the looters on tv tonight – what city is next on the list?
    Then in the morning – I’ll get a free breakfast – even though due to Coronavirus – it’s “grab and go” – no eggs, sausage or waffles. I’ll have to eat fruit, yogurt and a granola bar…yuck!!…lol

    Thank you Santa Clarita taxpayers for the free room – I love sheltering in place.

    • I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. Pretty radical thinking there, huh?

      Here’s another- Don’t look down on anyone unless you are offering them a hand up.

      Your white privilege is showing.

  2. Enough is enough! I’m going to have to agree with the President on this one, the governors need to stop cowering down to these thugs it’s time to break out the fire hoses and rubber bullets. This has gone on long enough the message is lost. The blm needs to be labeled a hate group now for setting this up. Yes it started out as a group to protest police violence but now it is no different than the crazy white power people. we don’t need any hate for anyone spread here in America.

  3. Oh please this has nothing to do with any rage it’s just young thug’s with no developed frontal lobes yet having a good time destroying and stealing ,nothing more.

    • Will, you still have not answered my question. You said ‘my hate for white people is showing’ when I quoted Jesus and Reverend Jesse Jackson and also mentioned white privilege which is a real thing I’ve suggested you look up and educate yourself on so you don’t look like such a goddamn fool.

      Knowing you have a short span of attention I repeat- How does that show any hate towards anyone?

      And don’t change the subject or do your stupid lol bs. Own your statement or shut the hell up. You are like a tagger or a looter that runs when challenged.

      btw- I’ve been white my entire life. I’ve also looked beyond my own race… and LEARNED.

      • So your brainwashed by your own self doing ,you convinced yourself that your race treats people different because of something you read. Those theories are all opinions by someone,not facts if you can’t make your own decisions by the stuff you read you are ignorant and not willing to learn. as for this white privilege theory I would have to say it is a dangerous theory to put out there. If you tell a young black kid he might get treated differently because of this so called white privilege he will grow up always thinking he can never be as good as a white. If you tell a white kid he will get treated better because of the white privilege theory he will grow up thinking he is better. What do you not understand about that ? It’s a destructive message plain and simple. If we want to talk about privilege, woman are less likely to get tickets, women are more likely to get the standard job over men, is there a woman privilege?

        • No sale. WP is not a theory, it’s a fact that has brought us to where we are now as a society. You remain blind and unwilling to learn on your own.

  4. Love LA But this need to end

    Seriously im getting sick and tired of the curfew ..at least before we could at least go out to buy anything Essentials our kids or even is as adults might need bit now if my kids get hungry … I have to tell them sorry but you have to wait till 6am …smh

  5. White Privilege is a construct of some radical leftists who want to bring on socialism when anyone knows a damn about history knows that it fails when it runs out of other peoples money. Get a haircut, get a job and get a life.
