House Bound: Baltimore and the Youth Curfew Debate

Starting next month, young people in Baltimore will be subject to one of the strictest curfews in the nation. The curfew imposes a tiered system that bars some youth from the streets as early as 9 p.m. during the summer. Baltimore's law follows similar moves by U.S. cities scarred by high-profile violence. But youth advocates say that past curfews imposed in Baltimore, the D.C. metro region and beyond violate rights, subject parents to unfair scrutiny, and don't deter crime. Kojo explores the public safety and civil rights questions behind keeping kids indoors at night.
