Curfews Suck

Public Hearing: Pittsburgh City Council: Friday, May 29, 2009 - 10:00 A.M.
Public Hearing - Bill No. 2009-1133 - Resolution providing for a professional services agreement or agreements with The Three Rivers Youth Shelter for the purpose of ongoing professional services related to the Youth Curfew Center and providing for the cost thereof. Cost not to exceed $500,000.00.
Pittsburgh shrinks some more with this.

Hasn't the whole 'curfew idea' failed already once, possibly more than once?

In suburban smaller towns it makes sense. In the city it's impossible.

I agree with number9. It didn't work the first time and I can't see it working this time. It might work if it included school hours and after school hours.
There are not enough Police now to do what they have to do. How many are going to take the time to look for kids on the street at night?
Another Luke screwup.
