Cops and Curfew
    #1719949 - 07/16/03 02:01 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Here in denver we have a citywide curfew for people 18 and under, and I'm trying to convince my friend that's it's OK to drive at night, that the curfew just basically affects you if yr. walking. Not legally, but I mean, the chances of a cop actually pulling you over, you know. What are your personal experiences when it comes to this, do you know anyone that's ever been pulled over for violating curfew?

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

When I was 17 I got pulled over by a cop coming home from work late one night (like 1:30am). I had a jr's operators license at the time which meant I was not supposed to be driving without an adult in the car between the hours of 1am and 5am. I told the cop that I was going home from work, which I was, and he did not site me for violation of this law... he just told me that I was in violation but seemed OK with it since I was going home from work.

I don't have any experience with the cerfew thing...you could just call the police station and ask them dude. I once called the police station to ask if hitchhiking was illegal. The cop asked me why and I told him I needed to get somewhere and didn't have a ride so I was planning on hitchhiking. He said there may be a law against it but it wasn't their practice to pick up anyone hitchhiking. So ask the cops. See what they say.

It is unconstitutional. The supreme court of the united states has struck down these curfews as unconstitutional. Unfortunatly most jurisdictions don't care and still will bust you for them. Other jurisdictions create new unconstitutional curfew statutes to enforce. There is little you or your friends can do about it. Eventually, you'll grow up and stop caring about that because it doesn't affect you anymore. It's like the quest for a fake id. Eventually you turn 21 and don't need one anymore.

Detroit has a mandatory curfew on the week of Devil's night (Oct 30th) and i believe anyone under 18 w/o an adult has to be inside around 6-7 pm till 6 am., God i love the suburbs.

I always read about residential homes in detroit being targeted by arsonists in detroit on devils night. It's only in detroit that I read about that. It seems to happen every year. Like the rash of black church burnings in the south a few years ago I suspect it's the owners of the buildings burning them for the insurance money.

it's amazing when you think aboot it. Hundreds of fires in one night (although it is getting better) but during the 80's and 90's it was like a war zone, hundreds and hundreds of arson fires (usually to abandoned houses). The problem is that Detroit was built for 2+ million people which it had in the 60's but now since the "white flight" of the 50's through present time it only has upwards of 900,000 people. That's a lot of abandoned houses. A majority of the population in the area are in the suburbs.

I remember it well. One year I watched it on the tv news and there were over 2 dozen housed burned! Amazing! I didn't realize they were abandoned houses. But that would go along with my idea that it's the owners of the houses torching them for the insurance cash.

Actually they're referring to it now as "ANGELS" night but we always called in devils night when i was a kid. But the worst thing we would do is throw eggs and soap windows.
