    I had the same rules - street lights went on and you better be back at home. But, that was what MY parents did. I think all parents should do the same. But, should a government make it a law?

    No.

    Just more government takeover of parental responsibilites.

    Considering the time when it gets dark changes daily from 4 PM to 9 PM the reference to the street lights coming on is kind of silly.

    Just more typical "lets do something to make the poeple we are doing something" legislation that will have zero impact on crime.

    Even though curfew sounds good to me I'm curious this day in age about the legality of such laws. Seems like lots of things are considered a violation of peoples' rights in some way, shape, or form, so is some lawyer gonna test curfew laws in Chicago or elsewhere?

    curfews are nothing short of tyranny.

    It's the city telling parents how to parent and it conditions the kids to do as the government says.

    I knew when to be home, my parents made that very clear.

    Curfew would work in Chicago about as much as it would work in Juarez.

    Just build trumpian walls around all of the bad neighborhoods and airdrop food and provisions periodically. They're all already on welfare anyway. Let Mexico pay for those walls, too.
    Escape From New York kinda thing.
