Proclamation 6427—Law and Order in the City and County of Los Angeles, and Other Districts of California
By the President of the United States of America
Whereas, I have been informed by the Governor of California that conditions of domestic violence and disorder exist in and about the City and County of Los Angeles, and other districts of California, endangering life and property and obstructing execution of the laws, and that the available law enforcement resources, including the National Guard, are unable to suppress such acts of violence and to restore law and order;
Whereas, such domestic violence and disorder are also obstructing the execution of the laws of the United States, in the affected area; and
Whereas, the Governor of California has requested Federal assistance in suppressing the violence and restoring law and order in the affected area.
Now, Therefore, I, George Bush, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, including Chapter 15 of Title 10 of the United States Code, do command all persons engaged in such acts of violence and disorder to cease and desist therefrom and to disperse and retire peaceably forthwith.
In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of May, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety-two, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and sixteenth.
