According to the City it was not a “Sweep.” It was “Homeless Outreach” and the people arrested were being connected to services. This is preliminary information, but we understand out of the 32 arrests only 1 was released and the rest get their services in jail for the weekend.

The charges were:
LAMC 41.18 d – sleeping on a sidewalk, which is not supposed to be given out between 9pm and 6am according to the Jones decision.

LAMC 63.44 B14(b) – a law that closes the beach from midnight to 5am – that the city did NOT get approved by the California Coastal Commission to even do

LAMC 63.93 h – Says: remain, stay or loiter within the limits of any public library between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 9:00 a.m. the following day.
