Why or why not ?The planet is shared by 6 billion people and we all have the right to walk on it. Even if not in the constitution it's our natural right. You can't trap people in their homes and arrest them for leaving and walking on a shared planet YOU DON'T OWN. And you can't make a law telling people when they can be out in PUBLIC, which we all share, which is natural human activity, which legislatures don't own. Teenagers don't have any freedom and a curfew just adds unnecessary stress and inconvenience to many teenagers, 99% who have no intention of breaking the law. Do we really want to criminalize behavior that doesn't violate anyone's rights, even to reinforce a law we think parents should but don't enforce? Teens do not require different kind of policing to cut crime. The only effect curfews have is wasting law enforcement resources and unnecessarily placing 1000 more law abiding young people in the juvenile justice system.

Complete shot in the dark here, but are you a teenager?
Think'st thou heaven is such a glorious thing?
I tell thee, 'tis not half so fair as thou
Or any man that breathes on earth.

I'm inclined to agree.
