Daytime Curfew Proposed

  • Reading: The Constitution of the United States
There is a bill working its way through the Indiana legislature that would impose a daytime curfew on all people under 18. The pertinent part is section 12.

Daytime curfews are a bad idea for any number of reasons. First, there is the fact that the few controlled studies which have been done show that daytime curfews do not lower juvenile crime rates.

Under the proposed law a teen out driving or walking can be stopped and questioned just for being a teen. Being a minor is not probable cause! Daytime curfews also assume a person is guilty until proven innocent.

And what constitutes school hours? Within the Fort Wayne metro area there are at least four different school districts and dozens of private schools. If you move out into the surrounding areas there are dozens of school districts. The calendars and school hours are not uniform among these schools. And in Columbus there is even more variety, because some schools are on a year-round calendar.

Enforcement efforts should be focused on those minors who are enrolled in school. The schools KNOW if they are not in attendance and can deal with truancy. There is no reason to pass a sweeping curfew law that opens the door to harrassment of innocent kids.

I think this post intends to reduce the incidence of crimes committed during the daytime, to reduce losses due to daytime juvenile crime, and to encourage juveniles to take advantage of educational opportunities, to develop a program to keep juveniles out of the formal juvenile justice system. real estate virtual tours

I trust that parents can take care of their kids. This sounds funny to me, but a someone from this repairing company was saying it might be a good idea, although I think he was joking. Not sure. Interesting anyways.
