Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) is encouraging residents in his city to tattletale on their neighbors who defy his stay-at-home order. Specifically, he's targetting businesses that continue to remain open despite not being considered "essential" (at least by government standards).
If any non-essential businesses continue to operate in violation of the stay at home order, were going to act to enforce the safer at home order and ensure their compliance, Garcetti said. You know the old expression about snitches. Well, in this case, snitches get rewards.
We want to thank you for turning folks in and making sure we are all safe, the mayor said during a press conference Your decision to stay home may mean that theres one less person who needs a ventilator we do not have.
Garcettis office has already sent the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) to 144 of the more than 500 non-essential businesses that failed to follow his order. Of those, four have been sent to the city attorneys office for misdemeanor charges.
The mayors team encouraged residents to submit business violations here, on the city website. Its unclear what the so-called rewards will be (if anything).
The announcement comes after Garcetti formed his "Safer at Home" Business Ambassadors program last month. The program "deploys city workers and volunteers with the mayor's Crisis Response Team to businesses that appear to be out of compliance with the emergency order with a goal of securing voluntary compliance. If voluntary compliance is not achieved, the ambassadors will share information with the city attorney and LAPD for follow-up."
'Snitches Get Rewards': Garcetti Encourages Community To Report Businesses Violating Safer At Home
How Nazi of him.
The DOJ Barr better work on this communist.
What kind of reward? I may be tempted.
Nothing less than a brand new AR-15 plus > 1000 rounds, then we can talk.
How long before the children are encouraged to rat out their parents?
‘Rats gonna rat.
I wonder how he would react to ICE setting up a snitch line to report illegal aliens?
This is closer to the East German Stasi after the war.
There are places in LA where you can stand on one side of the street and be out of the city, in unincorporated county area under the jurisdiction of the Sheriff. Someone needs to organize a group and stand on that side.
It’s the socialist revolution.
Exactly who do we “rat out” Garcetti, to?
How quickly they RUSH headlong to become more fascist and to turn themselves into the gestapo.
He would have made officer rank in the Nazi military.
Probably at least a General.
Cuba was real big on Neighborhood Watch programs, too.
This is terrible.
How much is the reward.
But you’re not allowed to report or lock up illegal aliens, though they broke the law coming here, often commit identity theft and rarely pay taxes.
Somebody should photoshop him into a Gestapo uniform.
Commie run Third World Schiffhole.
Just my opinion but Garcetti even looks like an idiot who is only a sock-puppet for the Commies.
Garcetti: G F Y S repeatedly.
