The mayor of East St. Louis, Alvin Parks, declared on September 27 a “zero tolerance order” effective immediately in East St. Louis. He is targeting teenage boys under the age of 18 with a plan to enforce curfew laws and to arrest any teen walking the streets during school hours.

There is a window from 4pm-10pm that teens are allowed to be outside, but the mayor warned that any teen found without ID will be arrested. He went on to say wearing royal blue or bright red will be outlawed. These policies of increasing the police presence and enforcing martial law are said to be “for the safety of the citizens”.



About tyrannywatchblog

Tyranny Watch was conceptualized in late 2011 by Zachary Cole based on the need for an authentic alternative in Saint Louis to the corporate media. It was soon apparent that reporting on local news and operating within social networking sites would not be enough to spread the message of truth. We decided to create a website where liberty and knowledge could easily be compiled into one location. Having our own place also eliminates the very real risk of being censored by arbitrary and often unfairly applied rules. Tyranny Watch seeks to be an example with integrity and insightful commentary on the various issues that face this country and the rest of the world. We feel that it is important to bring to the forefront news that is intentionally ignored and points that would not be admitted in a controlled environment. Tyranny Watch is also involved in our local community standing quietly in solidarity or sounding the alarm however the situation calls for. We seek to cover events that need our close attention or simply getting the word out about an important protest, march, etc. Whenever it is possible, Tyranny Watch will be there to give support to worthy causes.
