Curfew a Cosmetic Fix
Somehow the Baltimore City Council decided to fight crime in Baltimore and to keep city kids safe but choosing to make decisions for parents:
A tough new curfew forcing kids off the streets as early as 9 p.m. was approved Monday by the Baltimore City Council over objections it will place too much stress on the Police Department and lead to conflicts between youths and officers.
The legislation requires one more vote for final passage, which is expected next month. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has said she’ll sign it into law.
The bill’s sponsor, Councilman Brandon Scott, said it is intended to keep small children from wandering the street, becoming victims of crime or suffering from neglect.
