Curfew laws in Utah should be enforced to keep teen violence under control. We have a curfew of 12 a.m., and it should be enforced. I believe that if the law were enforced, a lot less gang activity would happen because they would be aware that they could be jailed or cited for violation of curfew.

If this were to happen, then we could probably be painting the fences and fixing damaged property a lot less.All property damage and graffiti in our area has taken place in the early hours of the morning. Most of our gang activity takes place between 12 a.m. and 4 a.m. If the curfew for minors is enforced, the result would be less property damage and less gang violence. Although we still would not be getting rid of all the property damages and other damages, I believe it can make a difference.

Is it worth the opportunity of bettering our neighborhoods and making it a safer place for everyone?
