  • Spring Break for High School

    Its spring break.. we're going to do some curfew sweeps. Had a good one last night. Netted 10. Anyone else work community security that does curfew patrol?

    Our state curfew law was deemed unconstitutional and abolished.

      Curfew? What's that? They check into my hotel & use drugs to stay awake for the 4 days they are here!
      I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.

        Spring Break equivalent is the rush by seniors and those who want to be seniors up to the gold coast for a few weeks. Underage drinking, assault and drug use is high as most parents will fork out $2k for their darlings to go and kill themselves for 2 weeks or so. Cheap packages are on offer for apartments as hotels are usually unwilling to let 16 year olds play hotel cricket in the corridors at 0400.

          As it should have been.

              There is no law (in my state) to enforce so it isn't an issue on private property. However, a property owner may impose certain rules relating to "curfew" issues. Malls are a good example.

              On a side note, some Indiana towns and cities have adopt local ordnances to address curfew issues. My city has not.

                Kansas City has a curfew for minors of 2300 on weekdays and 0000 on weekends. I think every city should have one. Someone please tell me what business children age 17 and below have outside the home after midnight? Obviously up to no good(in MOST not all cases)

                Keep in mind this curfew does not apply to minors that are out and about with proper supervision~ aka a responsible adult

                    I am not suggesting that those no-good niks with their long hair and rock music should be out late. I am just saying that it is their parents' job to make that call, and I am not a fan of the nanny state. State enforced curfews, in my uneducated opinion, also seem to be in conflict with the fourteenth amendment to the U.S. constitution.

                      You are exactly right. No business being out that late. Its for their safety

                        I understand where you are coming from Mr. C but the fact of the matter is there are way to many incompetent parents in this country.......what kind of RESPONSIBLE parent would let their kids off of their property unsupervised after midnight anyhow? Im assuming you dont have kids Mr. C.........

                        laws are put in place to protect the citizens life and property and this one is no different

                          Procudures (or law enforcemnt rules) are for people who can't understand policies (or legal justice), like those who do not regulate children at all due to neglect.

                          Not that there would be justifiable reasons to break curfew, but those would never usually require discretion of law enforcement, nor go any further in most cases.

                            In the absence of a curfew law, we have used other statutes to pick up the slack. I agree, most kids out after midnight are looking to get into trouble. We have a very functional delinquency statute as well as the old stand-by’s such as minor consuming, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct, trespassing, etc.

                            As my uncle uses to say, there are only two things to do after midnight. Getting arrested or getting pregnant.

                              That should not be the purpose nor reason for laws. That it has become the sole purpose and reason is a sad commentary on our society.
