Posted on 02/28/2013 6:02:46 PM PST by Bon of Babble
Miami Police are enforcing a curfew for children under the age of 17, citing safety.
Curfew hours are 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday to Thursday and midnight to 6 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
Children under 17 are not allowed to "linger, stay, congregate, move about, wander, or stroll in any public place in Miami-Dade County, either on foot or in a vehicle during curfew hours," according to police.

Another example of the state usurping parental authority. There are occasions when there’s a perfectly good reason of a teen to be out late, such as a part-time job.
The Miami yoofs and thugs are little angels compared to those in Chicago, Barack and Moochie’s home town.
If the area is typical of US minority enclaves, 75% of the kids are bastards. To any rational person, that’s a huge problem. To a Great Society Democrat, that’s a huge accomplishment.
If Barack Obama had a son, he’d be under “house arrest” because of curfew laws.
Other exemptions are if a child is helping in an emergency, traveling to or from a school or a religious, civic or county-sponsored event, is emancipated by marriage or court order, is homeless, is exercising First Amendment rights, or is on the property of his residence or a neighbor's residence who does not object, if the child is attending or coming back from a public event that began before 10 p.m. and has written permission, and if the child's activity is authorized by the county commission.
we had this when I was a kid,
it was called MOM!!!
Absent sperm donor and baby mama make for societal problems. Feral yutes, indeed.
Same law was enforced in Mesa AZ in the 60’s. It was just normal.
the same kind of liberal, progressive “parental unit” who lets their kids sleep with their BF/GF upstairs?
Don't worry. They'll rise to the occasion when the text messages start coming in on their Obama phones.
Diving and swimteam practice started at 5am when I was a kid...
Really though, my curfew was quite liberal by the standards here. We were good kids and stopping for pizza etc. after a school function, Bible study, etc. was not unusual.
A curfew was in effect in our city, but I never recall it being inforced with the groups/kids I hung out with. Cops would drive by and wave with a smile.
LOL, I’m a high school teacher in LA.
The b/f or g/f isn’t upstairs — he/she is in the SAME BED!! I hear this “sleeping over” with boy/girl friends ALL THE TIME!! (as if it’s normal). The “parent” has NO PROBLEM with this!!
I had to restrain DH when our daughter was brought home a few minutes late from a high school date — he wanted to get the shotgun.
but can they walk, sashay, shuffle, skip, hop or run?
Seriously, I don't think this is such a bad thing. It's a shame that the parents don't already require it.
****** “we had this when I was a kid, it was called MOM!!!” *******
Dad in my case and if he wasn’t available at the moment “Just wait till your Dad gets home and you can tell it to him”
(PS I deserved / earned every butt whipping I got, the first one from Mom and the second from Dad)
;^) “I’m a baaaad boy” (think Abbott and Costello)
If I had kids they would not be dating until they are 18
Something just feels funny about this.
If they really want to sell it, they need to call it the Trayvon Martin law.
Jim Crow is back as a Hispanic - Jose Crow?
Reminds me of a drinking song......
Knowing Miami-Dade .....
Little ShaQweatha is hanging around some Overtown street, talking to her baby-daddy LaQuantha. Hispanic Metro-Made cop sees young ShaQweatha out well past curfew....sees she missed her juvie court hearing last month....and arrests her.....LaQuantha gets upset and attacks LEO, and LEO caps him in self defense. Blacks riot. M-D LEO is tried and found not guilty....Blacks riot again. Al. Sharpton and the Black KKK calls for more riots, no curfew, and the LEO be executed.
First thing that entered my mind... I wonder if a similar decision in another city might have saved that apprentice baby-boy hood Trav-on Martin.
What happened to midnight basketball?
When I was a kid we had a curfew and every once in while they became very strict about it. In the summer it was impossible to go to a double feature at the drive-in and get home by 11. I got stopped once and refused to follow the cop to the police station. I told him he could follow me home and talk to my dad if he wanted, he let me go.
Once when I was 6 they were enforcing the curfew strictly. My parents went out that night and left me with my 3 brothers. The parents were gone about 30 seconds and my brothers took off leaving me all alone. i was tough and I didnt care.
Much later that night my brothers and all their friends came running into the house and said the cops were after them for curfew and went and hid in the back room. They had tracked in mulberries and it was a mess so I cleaned that all up and had just finished when a cop knocked on the door.
I answered the door and the cop asked if I had seen anyone come in to the house, well, I couldnt lie so I just looked at him and he looked at me and after a few minutes I just walked away leaving him standing at the door. I went back several times to look at him and he just stood there.
Finally, my brave (smart ass brother) came out in clean clothes and shoes and asked what he wanted, the cop asked if he could search the house, my brother politely asked if he had a warrant the cop said no and walked away and my brother closed the door.
Our parents never knew it occured.
We used to drive up and down Main ST on Friday nights. The cops would stop us if they saw our car more than twice even if it was before curfew. When they did stop us, they would just tell us to get home. You and your brothers sound like bad boys to me, LOL.
LOL, I don’t think we were too bad. But on second thought if my kids had done half the things I did I would have grounded them for life but we had a pretty good code of silence and our parents didn’t have a clue.
>Same law was enforced in Mesa AZ in the 60s. It was just normal.
Yep. We had those laws where I lived too. I don’t see the problem. Probably a good idea.
See, and that's what trips people up.
Here was my sister and I, long moved out of our parents' home, many years after an event in question, and we were remenessing about that particular event, and all of a sudden there was silence behind us... it seems that as much as they knew about our shenanigans, they may have missed that particular one, and there we were just blabbing to to world.
I think we're still grounded and it was 20 years ago that we told, and dang near 30 since the event. LOL
