Question 28 (Essay Worth 9 points)

 

(Policy and Elections 3.01 HC)<object:standard:ss.912.c.2.11>

Imagine your local city council is considering a city-wide curfew in response to a recent increase in crimes committed by teens. The proposed curfew would prohibit unsupervised children under 17 from being out after 9:00 p.m. on weekdays, and after 10:00 p.m. on weekends.  Some believe the curfews is a good prevention tool, keeping at-risk kids from becoming victims or criminals. Opponents argue confining innocent youth to their homes does not make young people more responsible. In a well-written paragraph, analyze whether the benefits of creating this curfew are worth the costs. Use examples from personal experience or the module to support your answer.
