Our Juvenile Curfew is Working(excerpt)

This article is about how in new Orleans,Louisiana they have a  curfew for juvenile.  So they have a program that is called juvenile curfew law.  The curfew are from 8p.m to 6a.m.  Sunday through through Thursday, and from 11p.m to 6a.m.  Friday and Saturday.  They say that it works over there because after 60 days of implementation, juvenile crime during curfew hours decreased by 38 percent. after 90 days, overall crime had dropped by 14.6 percent. 

I feel that the article was good because I think that it really teaches the juvenile how to keep them in control and on lock down.  That's really good because like that they cant be doing nothing bad and stay out of trouble, and that's every good.

I think that curfew wouldn't work here because even if the kids go to jail or what ever they still do the same thing even though they in probation or what ever.  So it wont work here for nothing.
