Interesting take on how to curb crime. I'm not seeing how that will really work though. I didn't know many kids that actually followed any of the curfew laws when I was growing up.. bunch of hooligans that we were. :lol:

It will work about as well as gun laws. The criminals will still be criminals.

True enough. Personally I think it should be up to the parents to give a curfew and enforce it.

If the child breaks it then fine the parents.

That'd be easy to do I suppose.. but how would it keep the kid from continuing to break curfew and such?

And that's the real problem right there. A lack of parenting.

Well it worked in the UK in many areas. In many cases it is the parents that are at fault, IMO. If the parent is not doing their job then I am sure it will sink in when it start to come out of their pocket.

Its not a cure but it does work in many cases. We have also have news report of a sound system to stop youngsters hanging around on street corners. 21 and under you hear a higher frequency sound than older. It something to do with your ears degrading with age. I am not quiet sure.

Anyway these are places on the outside of buildings and all they hear is a loud pitched noise.

Seems to have worked but I am not sure what it does for pets.

If some parents would worry less about being their childrens friend and more about being a parent that might change.

Theres also the issue of discipline. If you apply the board of education to the seat of understanding, it could be considered child abuse. It's crazy. People want parents to do their job.. but they take away a lot of what a parent can do in regards to punishments and such.

One of the gals I yap with on another board had a good solution.. she took the door of her son's room, took away all his stuff.. just left a bed and that's it. He straightened up fairly quick.

The fines would work for some. However you always have the kids who could care less that will continue to do what they want to do regardless of who gets hurt.

I wonder if ear plugs would help reduce that type of noise..
