LAPD Using Threats, Citations & Arrests to Keep Performers off Hollywood
LAPD has issued a verbal ban on all characters and street performers. Although there is no official law on the books to enforce it. Because of a few bad apples, the LAPD and the city have wiped out all performers on Hollywood Blvd. To enforce the ban, the LAPD has used threats, bogus citations of loitering and arrests to get their point across. City Councilman Eric Garcetti who is responsible for Hollywood & Highland has denied numerous attempts to open a dialogue or to speak on the matter. Needless to say, I will not be voting for him in any capacity again.
