Halloween is officially canceled for the families of Los Angeles County.
On Tuesday the far-left county released a list of harsh coronavirus guidelines that prohibit everything that makes Halloween Halloween, including trick-or-treating and even “trunk or treating.”
“Door to door trick or treating is not allowed because it can be very difficult to maintain proper social distancing on porches and at front doors especially in neighborhoods that are popular with trick or treaters,” the guidelines read.
“‘Trunk or treating’ events where children go from car to car instead of door to door to receive treats are also not allowed.”
Families may also not hold parties “with non-household members,” even if the parties are conducted outdoors. Nor may they attend carnivals, festivals, live entertainment and even haunted house attractions.
View the guidelines below:
Local families aren’t completely out of luck, though …
Families may attend “online parties,” participate in drive-by “car parades,” watch a Halloween-themed film at a drive-in theater, eat a Halloween-themed meal in an outdoor restaurant and view Halloween-themed art at an outdoor museum.
And protest, of course. Families throughout Los Angeles County are reportedly still welcome to congregate in physically tight-knit clumps so long as they do so under the banner of the radical Black Lives Matter movement.
Some have suggested therefore that families should just switch from regular ol’ trick-or-treating to “protesting door to door”:
We’ll just say they are protesting door to door. Problem solved.

I suggest taking kids door to door protesting and demanding candy in impacted areas.

Just call Halloween a peaceful protest and it will be ok.

I’ll be hosting a protest of this “guideline”, bring your customes and we will stay in the streets where people are allowed to do what they want anyways. What a joke.

Maybe kids dress up and go to the mayors house for a protest? Instead of taking a knee maybe he could hand out candy and they’d all go away.

Just dress up like the protestors and as long as you’re not blocking an intersection, the cops won’t do anything.

What remains unclear is how county officials intend to enforce their draconian guidelines, given as some parents apparently have no intention of abiding by them.
I hope they are ready to arrest a whole lot of people. Protesting is okay but kids can’t Trick or Treat ? Over my cold, dead body. Don’t @ me with tour b.s. You will get no response.

Good luck with that one in the San Fernando Valley! My kids are going out and I’ll pay the fine.

The county’s announcement comes only days after hundreds of BLM extremists congregated on the streets to protest the fatal police shooting of a black suspect, Dijon Kizzee, who’d attacked officers after they’d tried to stop him.
“The encounter … began when two sheriff’s deputies from the South Los Angeles station spotted a man, later identified by the coroner as Kizzee, riding a bicycle in violation of vehicle codes, according to Lt. Brandon Dean,” the Los Angeles Times reported.
“Deputies attempted to contact Kizzee, but he dropped the bicycle and ran north on Budlong Avenue for a block, with deputies in pursuit, Dean said. Deputies again tried to make contact in the 1200 block of West 109th Place, and Dean said Kizzee punched one of them in the face.”
During the altercation, Kizzee’s jacket dropped to the ground, and a black handgun fell out. When he reportedly tried reaching for it, the officers opened fire, killing him.
Afterward, riots erupted:
Protests erupted in Los Angeles after Dijon Kizzee, a 29-year-old black man, was shot by police officers from the South Los Angeles Sheriff’s Station.

Notice how none of the videos showed officers arresting people. It’s not clear if they’ll respond similarly if and when they encounter trick-or-treating families on Halloween.
