LA curfew, Santa Monica, LBC, Valley next

NBC 4 News, Los Angeles; Editors, Wisdom Quarterly

Ignoring the LA County curfew during unrest
Watch Live: Los Angeles County has announced a curfew will goes into effect at 6:00 pm (4:00 pm in burning, looted, riot-torn Santa Monica and Long Beach) rather than the previously announced 8:00 pm National Guard after looting and some destruction continues through  Sunday. Newschopper4 Alpha is over the scene. 

Where's the Valley? Behind the Hollywood sign.
Protests, demonstrations, and likely some looting is scheduled for the San Fernando Valley area on Monday. Covid-19 alarmism is no concern. This is now about taking the pent up unrest caused by police to every part of the county and country. "Los Angeles" has 88 cities and more than 10 million residents. But there are over 70 locations across the U.S. dealing with the aftermath of police racism and abuse. Officer Derek Chauvin and his gang started the fire, but they did not provide the fuel. Other police and corrupt officials did that. Even Trump is getting a taste of his racist antagonism, as he and family are forced into the underground bunker beneath the White House when protesters start fires and approach the presidential palace in Washington, DC.

National Guard patrols L.A. after night of violence and police clashes with protesters
(KTLA 5 Weekend Morning News/AP, May 31, 2020, 07:27 AM PDT edited and corrected by WQ)
"We can't breathe" in L.A. (
Heavily armed militant National Guard soldiers patrol the streets of Los Angeles early Sunday as the city begins cleaning up after another night of violence that saw police clash repeatedly with demonstrators, who then torched police vehicles and pillaged some businesses.

A rare citywide curfew expired as dawn revealed broken shop windows, demolished security gates, and graffiti along entire blocks.

Garcetti, what have you done calling soldiers!?!
A remorseful Mayor Garcetti had to go back on his solemn word to the city as he admitted Saturday he requisitioned California Gov. Newsom for 500 to 800 National Guard troops (with the Sheriff getting 500 in addition to that) to assist his 10,000 LAPD officers [many of them detectives and other nonuniformed staff told to suit up, get their guns, and get their asses out on the streets to help abuse the population daring to act up].

The mayor said the Guard militants who arrived early Sunday were summoned “to support our local response to maintain peace and safety [and shoot on sight anyone they think needs shooting] on the streets of our city.”

I commit crime, that's right - Derek Chauvin.
Firefighters responded to dozens of fires, and scores of businesses were damaged. One of the hardest-hit areas was the area around The Grove, a popular high-end outdoor mall west of downtown where hundreds of protesters swarmed the area, showering police with empty water bottles, branches, pebbles, hurtful words, and other objects even rocks and vandalizing shops in reaction to official aggression and state-sponsored attacks like being fired at with bone shattering rubber projectiles, cannon bags, flash-bang concussive grenades, live rounds, batons, and brutal individual attacks.

One officer allegedly suffered a small fracture in his skull, and countless demonstrators were injured and stripped of their rights, terrified, kettled, arrested, and tormented], Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore said.

When the curfew took effect at 8:00 pm, police moved aggressively to get people in custody and off the streets -- even arresting motorists and impounding their vehicles as they got stuck in traffic -- and there was no repeat of the late-night rampage that occurred downtown Friday night and led to more than 500 arrests.

Four officers join in a gang killing of Floyd.
Community leaders denounced the violence that has accompanied protests over the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who was murdered by his co-worker, Officer Derek Chauvin (a fellow security guard at a local establishment), after three Minneapolis police officers pressed their knees into Floyd’s body and neck, while a fourth looked on and kept anyone who might intervene at bay.

Protests also roiled the east San Diego suburb of La Mesa, where two banks next door to each other burned to the ground and windows and people smashed windows at many businesses including a real estate office and a popular bar.

San Diego police officers, aided by other law enforcement agencies, walked shoulder to shoulder through the streets after 2:00 am Sunday, telling hundreds of protesters and observers that they would be arrested for "unlawful assembly" or worse if they didn’t disperse, some kettled (trapped in an enclosed area) when told this.

The suburb of 60,000 people borders El Cajon, where a police officer fatally shot an unarmed black man, triggering days of major unrest in 2016.

“I think people are hurting and they’re angry and they’re trying to be heard because there’s no other way to get anyone’s attention,” Ally Kaiahua said of the property damage in La Mesa, near San Diego. “It’s unfortunate but this has been part of our history and how things get done because they don’t listen any other way.” More

Derek Chauvin protests: Why police use grenades, batons, tear gas, rubber bullets, fists, and ammo with impunity
About five hours into San Jose protests over the death of George Floyd, police went to extreme measures in an attempt to clear the hundreds of people still in the streets. Full details at
  • #georgefloyd #blacklivesmatter #california #protest #abc7news
"I'll kill you, motherfather! Freeze!!"
If anyone fails to believe that it is police that instigate riots, engage in undue aggression, fire deadly rounds and less than fully lethal but often crippling and quite capable of being lethal projectiles (bullets, cannons, grenades, lassos, flying electric chairs, chemical gases and irritants, deafening sound weapons, and more), go out and observe peaceful demonstrations first hand.

I picked this [blank] special out of the crowd.
See the collective punishment of lawfully assembled crowds deemed "unlawful" at the whim of a commanding officer responding to undercover police (agent provocateur) pretending to provoke uniformed officers and troops.

That pretext serves to turn the tables on the crowd, begin aggressive tactics to kettle, arrest, injure, shoot at, and brutalize citizens for daring to exercise their right to assemble and express their grievances with government and policing practices.

There is nothing fair about it, but a cowardly portion of the population will judge demonstrators in ignorance and side with the "very reasonable" police simply trying to "do their job," which apparently involves being as abusive as they like to get that "job" done.

Don't live in ignorance. Don't automatically side with criminals in uniform. See for yourself. Attend and watch from a distance.

LA imposes overnight curfew for entire city

Sareen Habeshian,, 5/30/20, Updated 9:53 PM PDT; Editors, Wisdom Quarterly

Los Angeles imposes overnight curfew for entire city as protests continue over killing of George Floyd
Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that there is a curfew in place throughout the City of Los Angeles starting at 8:00 pm Saturday until 5:30 am Sunday as demonstrations, protests, riots, lootings, arsons, and unrest against the killing of George Floyd continue.

“I’m asking all of Los Angeles to take a deep breath and to step back for a moment to allow our firefighters to put out the flames, to allow our peace officers to reestablish some order,” the mayor said, “and for us to let them protect your rights to be out there for as many days as we need to [for future protests].”

Previously, the curfew was only for the downtown L.A. (DTLA) area between the 110 Freeway on the west, Alameda on the east, the 10 Freeway on the south, and the 101 Freeway on the north. However, the mayor said hours later that he changed his mind and it would be extended to the entire city.

The curfew, which requires people within the city [and county] to stay indoors, is in place for one night and Mayor Garcetti said he hopes that will be enough. Those traveling to and from work and those seeking or giving emergency care are exempt [if they are the right race and class and police believe them], the mayor said. More

LA martial law, Nat'l Guard, curfew (video)

AR-15 armed militants are common OC cops
Martial law is a de facto condition not only an official de jure proclamation.

Parts of Los Angeles are now forcibly on lockdown with a curfew that extends to the media.

We are being coerced by a thousand military troops from the National Guard rushing in to join the FBI, CIA, SS, "Alphabet Agencies" (like the NSC, NSA, DHS, IRS, and other secret agents from LAPD's spying wing).

Who will be in control, the military or uniformed LAPD militants and surrounding departments they called on to help with mass arrests. That's martial law by any name.
A whimpering Mayor Eric Garcetti declared it in the weakest terms possible, pretending it was for the good of peaceful demonstrators. The abused weren't buying it.

Who is Derek Chauvin?
Ofc. Chauvin's "Make Whites Great Again" cap
Officer Derek Chauvin, 44, is a 19-year veteran with the Minneapolis Police Department. [His wife has just filed for divorce from the ignominious racist murder suspect.]

According to police department records, Officer Chauvin has been involved in multiple police-involved shootings during his career.
  • [NOTE: Officer Chauvin had 18 complaints lodged against him in his 19 years but was "punished" with only two written reprimands for one of those incidents.]
Officer Chauvin was placed on leave in 2011 following the shooting of a Native American man, according to The Daily Beast.
I love being a cop! I get to kill, I get raises.
In 2008 Officer Chauvin shot and wounded Ira Latrell Toles after responding to a domestic assault call. Toles is said to have reached for an officer’s gun [a common cover story police use to justify their criminal, out-of-policy actions] when Officer Chauvin shot him in the abdomen.

Officer Chauvin and five other officers shot and killed Wayne Reyes, 42, in 2006, when he allegedly pulled a shotgun on responding officers [which is good to say to avoid discipline when you murder an innocent suspect].

Who is Officer Tou Thao?
Racist Asian Officer Thao engaged in police brutality and now murder (

I'm a brutal cop. I'm Officer Thao (
Officer Thao also featured in footage of George Floyd’s excessive force arrest and killing by three police. Officer Thao could be seen blocking bystanders who might have stopped Officer Chauvin from kneeling on and killing Mr. Floyd.

Officer Thao is a ten-year veteran of the force who was sued by a man, Lamar Ferguson, in 2014 alleging that Officer Thao “punch[ed], kick[ed], and kn[eed]” the plaintiff in the “face and body” resulting in “broken teeth as well as other bruising and trauma.”

Is it "murder" if I just helped them kill him?
Officer Thao and fellow responding police are said to have stopped and searched the plaintiff and his pregnant wife without cause or legal justification.

Officer Thao and the other officers took Mr. Ferguson to the hospital for medical treatment before dragging him to jail wearing only his underwear and t-shirt, despite pleas from hospital staff. The case was settled out of court. More

Famous Hollywood actor Denzel Washington (who will soon play Barry Obama) risked his life and reputation to step in using his superstar status for good.

He saved a homeless man being harassed and rousted by aggressive Los Angeles/West Hollywood police eager to put another notch on their Sam Browne (gun holster duty belt).

Is Denzel an angry Everyman? (Paul Rudman)

"Man, so if you're poor, you're dead."
Unless he had been as famous and recognizable as he is, he would have been taken down, feloniously assaulted, and charged with assault on a peace officer.

That's the racist world we live in in the United States ever since about 1492, according to Jimmy Dore. What happened to our world (in the USA)?

Actually, it's always been like this. Only thing is the Hollywood propaganda machines shows us something different, and white-owned newspapers spin the story differently along with the history book publishers hoping to sell to public schools.

The "Posse Comitatus Act" is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385, original at 20 Stat. 152) signed on June 18, 1878, by Pres. Rutherford B. Hayes. The purpose of the act – in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807 – is to limit the powers of the federal government in using federal military personnel to enforce domestic policies within the United States. It was passed as an amendment to an Army appropriation bill following the end of Reconstruction and was updated in 1956 and 1981. More

The Insurrection Act of 1807 is a U.S. federal law (10 U.S.C. §§ 251–255...Chapter 13, §§ 251–255) that governs the ability of the president of the U.S. to deploy military troops within the U.S. to put down lawlessness, insurrection, and rebellion. The general purpose is to limit presidential power, relying on state and local governments for initial response in the event of insurrection. Coupled with the Posse Comitatus Act, presidential powers for federal military law enforcement on U.S. soil and unincorporated territories are limited and delayed. More

LA joins protests of police brutality (video)

The more "woke" the population the more angry
LOS ANGELES, California (CBSLA) ⁠— Groups of peaceful demonstators interested in protesting police brutality following the police killing of George Floyd, a helpless black man who was purposely kneeled on to punish him for "resisting" (not wanting to be thrown into a claustrophobic enclosure) while already cuffed and in the custody of Minneapolis police, took to the streets Thursday for the second night in a row.

A large group of protesters gathered in Fontana, the same day a Fontana police officer murdered a man accused of assaulting a disabled person, officer, and a K9, outside of police headquarters.

Officers were out in force, though they said no arrests had been made.

Another group of largely peaceful protesters gathered outside of the Los Angeles Police Department headquarters in downtown Los Angeles around 5 p.m.

(CNN) Even Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey calls this police action "murder" as anyone can see.
SIGN: "Pussies hide behind guns" (WCCO).
The Minneapolis police officer seen [illegally] kneeling on the neck of an unarmed black man heard saying "I can't breathe" multiple times [and "my dick hurts," suggesting he was sexually brutalized while handcuffed] before [he was killed or murdered] he was a 19-year department veteran who was the subject of at least a dozen police [18 by some accounts] conduct complaints that resulted in no disciplinary action and one that led to a "letter of reprimand."

The officer, who was praised for valor during his career, also once fired his weapon during an encounter with a suspect, records show.

The officer, Derek Chauvin, and three fellow officers were fired Tuesday from the Minneapolis Police Department, one day after the incident involving George Floyd, whose cries of physical pain were recorded on a cellphone video and whose death led to a wave of violent protests Wednesday night in Minnesota's largest city.

Minneapolis police identified the other officers as Thomas Lane, Tou Thao, and J. Alexander Kueng. More + VIDEO

Floyd worked with Officer Chauvin as a security guard. Did he know Floyd had white fiancé?
Video shows lead up to murder of George Floyd, as he is not resisting but being put in car. Then it seems at some point he is pulled out, accused of resisting, and murdered on street. The killing was done with THREE knees on him holding him down for at least eight minutes and 46 seconds. Two minutes and 53 seconds of that time he was unresponsive and presumably dead.

Floyd's white fiancé. Killer-cop Derek Chauvin in red cap with racist slogan (SG).
One officer said to Chauvin that that was enough, and Chauvin ordered them to stay in place, apparently wanting to make sure he was dead or stopping only because paramedics arrived.

Conclusion: There are three murderers and one officer complicit in the murder. They all lied about it, presumably in written reports, all of which is contradicted by video evidence now surfacing. New video released 5/29/20 shows the murder from another angle as the three pin him down with their knees until he is a lifeless corpse. While they were all fired the next day for these illegal activities outside of policy, they have not all been charged.
