Why?
Because you don't want to reduce crime and possibly increase school performance?
But you know, living in a world where people rape and kill eachother and the bottom half of the worlds population is in pretty shitty conditions compared to the top half. And the wars and shit.
Oh but no, 'curfews' are what make you want to go live on the moon...

RE: So... here's another idea people wont like.
I remember a friend getting hauled out of a bowling alley at 17. He had never been in trouble before, his parents just laughed it off.
In the US, if a national curfew were installed and enforced, I imagine it wouldn't be long before someone sued for age discrimination.
I can also see a curfew being used as a way to get around racial profiling.

Curfews are in place locally all over the US and never once has a Judge overturned it due to "Age discrimination" because that is not a protected status.

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd discuss.

You don't have those?

Irreverent77, TartarSauce and Girly grew up with that. Most fun of my life. "Hey you kid, stop right there you're outside after curfew." "Catch me if you can piggy." They never caught me. Good times.

RE: So... here's another idea people wont like.
Michigan has had them for years.

10 pm for 12 yoa and under
12 midnite for under 16

http://www.lawrefs.com/michigan-curfews-for-children/

Probably not the worst idea ever. If a kid is just minding his own business - a cop is likely to look the other way -- but, if the kid's doing something stupid - it gives the cop a reason to hold and detain....

No, it didn't stop me from livin' large.

Because you personally represent every single under 16 ever?

Hey, nice leap of logic there. 7.7, didn't quite stick the landing, as we're to see:

Quote:Because it didn't stop YOU personally it was obviously a complete fail?

So, you're really quick to project assumptions. Here's some advice: think before you post.

I don't think it was a complete failure, the curfew system, and don't disagree with it being in place.

How you my disagreement from my post should be a mystery, but it seems clear to me that you're not really worth the effort, so I'll simply toss off this reply and move on to something more important, like trimming my toenails.

Congratulations, glad you were able to top off your Internet enjoyment by lodging an insult.

Quote:Deterring youth from going out at that time is only part of it. It would also allow police to stop youth out late at night before they cause trouble.

Well, duh. Do you always belabor the obvious?

You have a nice day there, little man.

A curfew would allow the Police to take action and break up the group before crime is committed.



Besides, there is no reason why a child under 16 should be out after 10pm anyway.

I wouldn't say that's a world I wouldn't want to live in... but that's not the world I have lived in, in many areas around this land. Maybe it's different on The Island. By which I mean, cops don't just let groups turn the corner but insinuate misdeeds without justification. It happens in different ways in different locations all around, but a problem is often giving either side a larger reason to distrust eachother.

Sometimes children out past 10 under 16 is safer for them than being inside at under 16. I've also seen that concept ignored when it comes to following easy set regulations.

Do they need a reason other than that they're a human being? I think a human being should be able to go outside whenever they want. Meh.
