Curfew in Miami

Posted on: April 25, 2010

At 11 every teenager at home!

A new rule about to come into law is going to change drastically the nights of the city of Miami. This rule, which has existed since 1994 but hasn’t been used, will not allow people under the age of 17 to walk on the streets alone after 11 PM (12 PM on Fridays and Saturdays). The only exceptions to this rule will be that the minor is accompanied by a person age 21 or older, or if he or she can justify not being at home, for reasons like sport or work. Some people have found this law racist, because they think it affects mostly black people, who are the ones that stay in the streets until later at night, they claim.
In my opinion this law is a little exaggerated, but it will probably reduce crime and make the children safer.
