Juvenile curfews should be implemented in all of America because they keep the streets and teenagers safe, too. (1) Since most violent crimes caused by youths occur between the hours of 3 and 6 PM, these crimes are being prevented with juvenile curfews. With juvenile curfews, youth crime could be lowered and lowered until the fact that youth crime is completely gone! (2) In the year of 2015, law enforcement agencies in the U.S made an estimated 21,600 of persons(people) under the age of 18. Many experts agree that implementing teen curfews push teens back into their classes, keeps them in the school network, and protects them form the street culture of gangs and violence. Juvenile curfews had an impact of many states and cities. For example,(3) Dallas has declared that overall juvenile crime has reduced 21 percent since implementing the law in 1994. Dallas has also declared that violent juvenile crime has decreased 30 percent too. Many communities have turned to this curfew law to drop the increase in juvenile crime. 1. New York Times 2. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention 3. New York Times


Juvenile curfews should not be implemented in all of Amerika.
Because this low is too strikt. This low will force all juvenile curfews to go out not flee. Nowadays, there a lot of juvenile curfews who work and study
out. So this low will prevent not only crime but also chance to act forjuvenile. In addition, the purcent of decreasing juvenile crime is less than 30 A285;.
This means that the low is has not big impact. Compared this situation, loss of economy
and education is more larger.

You can't force a child to do everything you want. These kids have done crime before and you believe a curfew will keep them inside? Teens rebel, it's how they are. Forcing against them will only make them force back harder.

How about in just high crime areas? Why everywhere in the United States?
