"The undesirables have flaunted the law once. Where will they stop?"

Broadside distributed by the San Gabriel Valley Citizens’ Council following a large gathering of young people at Arcadia County Park on June 4, 1967 for a "love-in." The text accuses those who gathered of using drugs, engaging in public sexual intercourse, and "riding of motorcycles and racing of automobiles on park property." Reporting that the local police refused to enforce any infractions, the Council ended the text with a call to "restore law and order to the city of Arcadia."
