"This follows a very peaceful protest that we saw this afternoon. We saw hundreds of youth throughout Oakland marching throughout the streets. There was a rally at a local high school, then they came downtown," Simon said.The curfew went into effect at 8 p.m. local time -- about half an hour ago now. It will stay in place until 5 a.m. Tuesday morning.

The mayor on freedom of protest:Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf acknowledged earlier today that there is a painful history of curfews in America used as a form of government oppression -- but that this was about safety and security rather than censorship.“I want to be clear that this is in no way to quell what we are passionate about and that is free speech and protest,” she said.

It's not just Oakland:Further south along California, police in Los Angeles are also arresting dozens of protesters who are out after curfew. There is a small crowd being detained in Sunset Boulevard, in the middle of Hollywood, with their hands held by zip ties.

Police officers in squad cars are also shouting out their windows that it was a curfew, and that those still out would be arrested and have their cars impounded. Read more: CNN Breaking News »

Look up the definition of curfew. What we see on TV is the America of Biden, Pelosi, Schumer & the rest of the state & local Democratic Party corrupt ideology at work. The cop that killed Floyd worked for a city/state run top to bottom by Democrats. Democrats can't run from any of this, they own ALL of it.

Do you or don’t you? Arrest them for going to work, not wearing 😷 and then birthing for arrest for breaking curfew. CNN nothing makes you happy. Because they aren’t sure who’s behind these peaceful protesters. Please peaceful protesters turn on these looters and agitators and give them to the police. That way our point will be heard

That’s the whole point, isn’t it? There is a curfew set and they are violating the curfew, they are breaking the law. I guess it’s okay with you if they are following your agenda. Because of the..........curfew. GOOD ARREST THEM !!! Not protestors past curfew but criminals !!! Just like Fake News What about the media being on the street after curfew?

That's how curfews work, idiots! Trump is a tyrant! He is depriving the people of their freedom! Do you understand what “CURFEW” means?! It's a curfew. Protest before the curfew. If they don't enforce the curfew why have one. It's not rocket science. And? Did he hold the Bible upside down at the church. What a heathen....,

Peaceful. Lol I guess they shouldn’t be out past curfew. Curfew applies to all. If they don’t have a specific purpose for being out there then they are breaking the law. Just a couple weeks ago you guys were cheering about a woman in a park getting arrested for being in public pushing her kid on a swing bc she was risking lives.

deaths of George Floyd riots reached 710 Past Curfew, pretty simple. Peaceful or not, the curfew says GO HOME. Hey CNN quit stirring the pot whether it was peaceful or not they broke the law, do you think the people who vandalized your headquarters in Atlanta should be let go ? That’s because they were BREAKING the law.

So they are arresting people on the order of a Democrat who said be home by X time and they stayed out past that time.. seems obvious to me .. Democrats want to control your life... Black people think they could earn reputation by robbing looting and crying? Look at their community. They will lose in the next generation.

cur·few /ˈkərˌfyo͞o/ Learn to pronounce noun a regulation requiring people to remain indoors between specified hours, typically at night. Yup. That’s what curfew means. Why not , last week they were being detained for being on the beach. So they are breaking the law I guess the people on here that are watching cities burn and Antifa beating people up, just turn a blind eye when CNN says “peaceful protestors”. What good sheeple you are. You don’t even wonder why we think CNN and it’s followers are morons.

Good! Smh 🤦‍♂️ Ummm that’s why the set the curfew, they are breaking a law. Yes, they should be arrested because they are breaking the curfew and hindering police from controlling the looting Peaceful protesters aren’t being detained. Trump police impose curfew only on demonstrators and Trump supporters do not comply with curfew orders This is our time justice must be justice is a requirement

That’s what a curfew is.....too hard to understand? FakeNews Feeling very sad and ashamed. Humanity has gone to this extent of political games even at this critical time of COVID 19. Requesting to all society members....please let's be human and not come in to political traps of white..black..yellow...brown.

CNN is a dumpyard. The curfew needs to be enforced. It doesn’t matter if the protesters are civil. The police need to concentrate on the looting that comes later. Yeah good. Trump is full of contradictions. Send in the military in Washington but denounce China about Hong Kong. Isn’t he doing exactly what China are intending to do in Hong Kong?

I think the protestors are in the wrong on this one. If there’s a curfew, stay home. Peaceful or not isn’t the issue. I use to believe protesting is the right thing I did but once I saw my city getting looted by outsiders and people that live here it’s a disgrace I saw protestors beating up citizens that has nothing to do with the situation now it’s time to stop this protesting ASAP

Peaceful ppl doesn't destroy other ppl's property. But of course I have to watch CNN through truth glasses. Curfew giving the cops a reason to are East peaceful protestors. I guess we actually can’t excersize our 1st amendment right. So what? That is what a curfew is all about Curfew means go home! Maybe now that it’s being enforced people will listen!

Great! Obey the Laws! Peacefully they loot stores; peacefully they brake businesses windows; peacefully they destroy years of sweat and hard working dreams and source of food; peacefully they destroyed, vandalized and set o fire monuments, churches, and government buildings. That is peace for CNN. Sad

YES, cuz curfew. That’s what it means. Stay out. It’s a crime. You get arrested. End of story. That will never change. CNN is trash. Please keep protesting! We need scientific results about spreading the Covid-19 virus! Sorry, no payment like before. Thanks for your help Fk cnn IT’S PAST CURFEW! And just to be clear that’s a dem gov and dem mayor directing these police, not realDonaldTrump

Curfew means OFF THE STREETS. PERIOD! That’s the whole point of a curfew CNN, racist news network. this is not the problem between 2 races, but this is the problem between different classes. Protests need leader, need a theory, need a book. If you want, I can send you ((Selected works of Mao Zedong)). CNN has ceased to be a legitimate, unbiased news organization. “If it bleeds it leads”. CNN wants to provoke confrontations so you tune in to their channel. They want you to turn on your fellow Americans. They thrive on it. They profit from it.

There is plenty of time to protest in hours between curfew. What is so hard for CNN to understand? Good!!!! They’re breaking a law!! Go the heck home! Good they should be arrested. Follow the rules. A curfew is a curfew. A advise from South Africa, leadership doesn't work when country is divided, either people aligned for the same path or country is full of salvages and USA is a developed country? CNN doing a worst help as incentivating for looting and anarchy, shame , 😂

I love that it’s a peaceful protest, but there’s a curfew, so abide by it and respect the law! HEY! Did anyone CHECK ON THE AMERICAN CONGRESS? HOUSE OR SENATE? Are they being detained somewhere? The organized protestors ruined it for others! Oh Fucking well! 😫😫😫 CNN Who imposed the curfew huh?! Isn’t it the state governors or mayors! All democrats, law enforcement are just implementing the law. Why make it malicious.. they are within their legal duties to arrest violators

So they’re being arrested for breaking the law? Cnn. Did you really need us to explain how curfew works? Bunch of mouth breathers Oh, ok. Only peaceful protesters can break curfew? I will fix your shit story should I police arrest criminals who break the law and aren't abiding by the curfew there fixed if Ur going to write something tell the fucking truth

The picture says it all 😣😣😣😭😭😭 They need to follow the rules now! Go home Before curfew, no worries. LOCK THEM UP!!!! Those “peaceful” protesters killed a black man. Killed a business owner too. How many need to die? Feed the fire CNN. Keep feeding it. Sooner or later this will catch up with you. This is not the order but the tyranny. The death of what makes America America. Geez. Where had the Great America gone?

Any updates on coronavirus? Well is a curfew!! Why u r outside!!!! The law is clear !!!!! POTUS USArmy WHLive WhiteHouse VP protests GeorgeFloyd AllLifesMatter ...... cnni CNNPolitics stop with the fake news and the propaganda, just make things worst !!!! usa Where’s the breaking news on the destruction of NYC? You f’ing hacks.

TOTALITARIANISM is NOT dead Why is CNN not mentioning that trump hasnt used the word racism, or mentioned racism to any real capacity yet... it that not what this is about?... he is 100% avoiding the real conversation... call him out on it ffs The disrespect... Don’t bring up San Francisco to talk about the town. THE WORLD KNOWS OAKLAND.

This how you turn peaceful protesters into an angry mob They are demanding for Justice nd they should given Justice.. If you were at the place of him then you would have also been here a knee caused all this....just a knee The message is clear to the Fat Orange Agent of Evil👹 You can arrest us, you can threaten us, You won't defeat us. Our spirit is stronger, Our diversity is unified, We are America!!

The curfew is in effect. It doesn’t matter now if they are peaceful. The president/ dictator of the US took that right. Were they wearing masks? And why no reports about how the Rona suddenly disappeared and never to be mentioned again? Good! Lock them up! Where is the government of UK, EU, Australia, Canada? it is time to condemn on the violation of human rights, freedom of protest.

What the F did you think curfew meant... Why is this breaking news? The police are doing their jobs. Why don't you make the headline 'Police arrest protestors violating the curfew' It is now illegal to protest when the goverment has said so.mjust like Iran and Venezuela. But why are the US the loudest screaming at other countries for banning protests? 🤷🏻‍♂️ most hypocrite country on earth. Yes some people are looting, but banning all protests is dictatorship
