Curfew - The New Big Thing

It's spreading:
  • The weekend shooting of three teenagers at a large late-night "flash mob" gathering prompted local authorities to pass an ordinance on Thursday that sets curfews as early as 9 p.m. for people under age 18.

    At the urging of Mayor Sly James, the Kansas City Council passed the ordinance 13-0, allowing police to issue citations to parents whose children violate the curfew. Parents can be fined up to $500 per violation.

    Three youths aged 13 to 16 were injured by apparently random gunshots at about 11:30 p.m. on Saturday night in an upscale shopping and restaurant district called Country Club Plaza.
Catch the fever!

Curfew didn't help the nine year old and 24 year old from getting shot in their living room in seven tonight.

Everyone keeps pushing the curfews, but I have a few questions. How many issued curfew violations actually lead to fines imposed on the parents? Of those imposed fines, how many actually get paid? Am I the only one that finds curfews to be a bark but no bite policy?

Good luck collecting from the bustout mommas, bitches!!!!!

Dude and dudette don't pay for shit now. Why the fuck would they start for this racist bullshit?

Rahm will never force them to pay or cut their freebies off.

Curfew ordinances are a useful media gimmick to make white voters think SOMETHING is being done. It plays upon their consciences. Make sure to tell your neighbors it's all bullshit.

Beirut is out of date, and destroyed, like Detroit.

These are great laws, but what you will is what goes on here in some burbs of cook county; hefty fines for parents and nothing for the offending juvenile. The kid get off. Now, you might say that the parents are dead beats and need to feel the pain, but believe me, that is not always the case. Some of these kids go out and just do not come home, some sneak out in the middle of the night when parents are sleeping. Many of these parents are decent people who work hard and barely make ends meet. These kids need to be sentenced to community service so they feel the pain. The parents need to be investigated after a couple of incidents to see if they are contributing to the problem. Then maybe a fine. I have had one of these wayward kids in my immediate family and have know a few more. Go for community service and not just a money maker for some city.

So we take them home and momma lets them right back out. Curfew won't stop the shootings, it will only delay them at best.

Are the Police going to Enforce the Curfew we have in this city currently?

Oh...wait....you all would have to actually be checking ID's.

And then either Cite or Haul them in.

Question about Curfew citations..

I presume it is an ANOV...

If Correct...what happened if you don't pay the ANOV?

Is it like a parking ticket ....it just doubles or is there a warrant issued?

Here's the problem with any curfew. It puts the responsibility of parenting with the police department. Not a bad idea to control the kids whose parents don't give a f**k. But it only works when you have ample manpower to enforce the curfew. We don't have the amount of officers necessary to even think of enforcing curfews. We're short 2000 officers from 4 years ago. So no, it will not work here. Funny thing in my neighborhood, all the parents enforce their own curfew and their children are home when they are suppose to be. Responsibility versus irresponsibility, what a difference simple parenting makes. Lost cause here, just can't wait to get out of this cesspool of savages, illegals and crooked politicians who cater to these assholes and ignore the people who are responsible and pay the bills of this cesspool.

The monetary fine has nothing to do with the major benefit of a curfew law: busting up loitering teens. There has never been a good anti-loitering law. It's impossible to tell the difference between a gathering of thugs and a gathering of honor students. The ACLU will make that point.

Dammit, I HAVE to stop wearing my T-shirt with "Dumb Liberal Yuppie" printed on it so I can get me an excuse to put a smack down on some honor students.

I was 17 when I went away to college in another state.

I can just see being at a party... Holy cow guys, I gotta go, it's almost nine!

It was bad enough I needed to have a fake ID to get into the 18 yr old bars!

What would they do? Call my parents and tell them their college son was out past 8:30 last night!

Curfews.

The only time people belong on the streets in Chicago is when they are either going to work, or going to spend money for/at one of the clouted corporations that hands out the political campaign contributions.

Otherwise they belong locked up in their homes. They have no business on the streets. It's dangerous!

Who do we serve and what do we protect?

We serve people like the ones that signed the cities parking meter contract. We protect their profits

We protect the people willing to put money into those meters.

It's a glorified mob operation where the police force is getting more like a revenue generation machine for the politicians rather than fighting for law and order.

There's more money to be made writing curfew violations and it's easy..It makes it look like the politicians are doing something about the crime...but the shootings go on nonetheless.

On the heels of a flash mob robbery in a Germantown 7-Eleven last weekend, a group of 10 girls hit a convenience store in Northeast, D.C. on Thursday, stealing about 70 dollars worth of merchandise. WJLA reports that it's the third time in two weeks the mob robbed the location.

The mayor is sounding like the lawmakers in Washington in that he "denounces and condemns" this activity. You know like when we condemn foreign leaders for things that we have no control over.

O.T.
Why did a certain Sgt. DW from area 2 get involved in a mtr veh. crash between two civilians. During the heated exchange that followed the crash, the wht. driver called the blk female driver the N word. She called Sgt. DW who promptly spoke w the responding POs on the scene via cell phone demanding this M2 be arrested for a hate crime. Realizing that this was poor taste in words but most certainly not a hate crime the whole mess went in to 021 to the WC who concurred with the PO but ended up getting a CR on the officer as a CYA. The ensuing investigation revealed that a later date Sgt. DW abused his police power and got an “investigative alert” on the M2 who was promptly arrested by the Great Lakes Regional Task Force, (which he worked on at one point) hauled out to A2 and charged with damage to property and another misd. Are you kidding me, a Regional Task Force to hunt down someone who poorly used his freedom of speech and then charged him with manufactured crimes? Another black eye for the city. Watch this one get swept under the rug as happens with Blk Supervisors.

Shame on the dumb fucks in G.L task force for following the lead. Now they all will be dragged into the mayhem and rightfully so. It's called discretion and if you don't have the balls to stand up for what's right then get the fuck out.

Yeah right. And who do you think they are going to charge (it'll be rights viol. for minorities)and will have to pay. The shit birds don't have the $$ and the courts will cut them loose anyway.
Suburbs, like Naperville, been doing this as a way to make revenue, has nothing to do with curbing crime.
"Kid you're 5mins. late, thats community service , 72 hour hold on dads car and $750.00 impound fee." After court costs , etc. that'll be somewhere near $1k. We can't lock up the illegals, with no D/L no insur. and hit/run, but you caucasian teens better straighten up or it's the hoosegow.
