Why must they spend the rest of your night inside, especially when all of their friends are out having fun? Having a curfew can and must be pretty frustrating. No curfew can be better for the children and their parents, and adults can be just as bad a juvenile delinquents. First off, not many kids or teenagers think they should have a curfew. They think that a curfew is taking a good amount of their freedom. They also agree that adults are no different.
The broken-windows theory was enforced before zero-tolerance policy and the Mayor transitioned into a more strict policy for reducing crime. Broken windows policing was effective in reducing crime rates within the United States. The transition into zero-tolerance policy made the police look at small offenses more seriously because these small offenses and low-level crimes could lead to higher offenses. Zero-tolerance was implemented because the Mayor realized all criminal offenses needed to be taken. The reform by these individuals is set on personal opinion for the best interest for what they believe.
All because some ignorant teens decided to do something dumb, resulting the city council giving all teens a 10pm curfew. A curfew that may limit the growth of many. This is not fair to all the good teens; the ones who wish to do something with there life. Curfews generally don't work, because the disobedient children they are made for can commit any crime during the day that they can at night.
Do curfews really keep teens safe and out of trouble, probably not. The argument based around curfew is essentially centered around the concept that teens will stay out of trouble when forced to stay at home. However, there cases on the opposing side in which curfews actually prevent teens from getting into trouble, but just as many or more cases found teens in performing these criminal activities. Do these curfews set on teens actually prevent crime, or do these curfews actually give teens more of a reason to participate in the events that the curfews were set to prevent.
