The city of San Jose announced Sunday a citywide curfew will be enacted after days of protests that began as peaceful but ended with looting and rioting in instances that officials don't think were intended by protest organizers.
The curfew will go into effect Sunday from 8:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. and will last for the next seven days or until further notice, a statement by the city explained.
Mayor Sam Liccardo, City Manager Dave Sykes and San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia hosted a press conference Sunday in which they discussed their decision.
San Jose Mayor San Liccardo says the actions of a few created problems for many.
"If you express your anger against one business, we are all one community we are all in this together," he said.
