Carmen Trutanich Declares War on Scalpers

LA is now treating ticket scalpers like gang members, at least acording to Tessa Stuart over at The LA Weekly, who writes that City Attorney Carmen Trutanich, in the midst of a fight for his political life, has announced that he will issue the “nation’s first ever scalper injunction”:

What that means is that “known scalpers”… will be preemptively banned from plying their trade at specific venues and associating with each other. This tactic is more commonly used against gang members, preventing them from congregating in particular areas, or with particular people.

We really are on top of the big issues here.
