Minneapolis was the first to impose curfews designed to prevent protests of police violence after Mayor Jacob Frey imposed a curfew on Friday.
On Saturday other cities followed suit, with Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan imposing a curfew set to start only 14 minutes after her announcement.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has issued a curfew for downtown LA.
We will always protect free speech and Angelenos’ right to live without fear of violence or vandalism. To increase safety for demonstrators, law enforcement and all citizens of Los Angeles, we are putting a curfew in place from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Louisville Police are enforcing a curfew tonight to stop protests. They are encouraging people to “stay home and stay safe.”
I wish Breonna Taylor was safe in her home.
