Baltimore Voting to Impose Curfew for Teens
Lawmakers in Baltimore, Maryland are voting to impose what could be one of the toughest curfew laws in America. If signed into law, kids under age 14 would have to be off the streets by 9:00 p.m., and those under 16 by 10:00 p.m.
It’s all part of an effort to crack down on crime. In one incident back in February, dozens of teens stormed a 7-Eleven and stole almost everything in the store.
Today on Outnumbered, Jedediah Bila said it’s not the city’s responsibility to parent children.
“Why can’t parents monitor where their kids are? Why do you have the city coming out and saying kids need to be off the streets? It sounds like house arrest for kids,” she said.
Tucker Carlson agreed that it’s the job of parents, but he also believes the city should do “whatever it takes” to clean up the streets.
“I love Baltimore. I’m not attacking the city, but it’s in trouble."
Bila also touched on the privacy rights of having a curfew, questioning how police will be able to monitor every young person.
