RACINE, WI– Amidst demonstrations– serene and violent– over the death of George Floyd, the city is taking additional safety measures and will again set up a curfew.
Over the last 48 hours, some protesters started the COP House on Villa Street on fire and broken into 11 various businesses. But there have actually also been tranquil protests.
Mayor Cory Mason released an emergency statement Tuesday that extends the city-wide curfew that starts at 10 p.m. Tuesday, June 2 to 5 a.m. Wednesday, June 3, according to a news release by the city.
“Again, we are providing this curfew out of an abundance of care. Last night was calm, and I appreciate the cooperation of our citizens who have actually marched and shown quietly, and who have actually turned down the agitators from outside the community in doing so. The goal is to keep individuals off of the streets and walkways in the nighttime hours,” stated Mayor Cory Mason.
The constraint limits travel on streets and pathways from homeowners going to and from their house, workplace, or to attend to individual requirements like getting medication from a drug store. The order does not need companies to close. Numerous manufactures and other businesses operate 24 hours. Staff members are legally allowed to take a trip to and from work under this order.
