Curfew: Worth It Or Not

Curfew: Worth It Or Not


The Curfew is not being enforced, imprisons you, and does not prevent
kids who are over 17 to commit crimes. There is always no one to enforce the
curfew, and it is hard to enforce. You feel as you are in a prison, you should
have control over your own life, and government should not tell you what to do.
Finally, kids 17 years and younger do not commit crimes.

Curfew is not possible to enforce because you can not tell by just
looking at someone and saying that they are 17 years or younger. In addition,
since this is a free country, you do not have to have an ID with you all the
time. For example, a Police Officer is walking on a street and sees several
teenagers going on the same side. He can not tell whether they are 17 years or
younger or not. Police Officer will not even bother to stop and ask anyone for
an ID. Since it is not possible to enforce the curfew at all times, during the
night, city is spending tax money for something that is impossible to enforce.

Curfew makes you feel imprisoned since you can not leave house for
parties or be at one of your friend's house for long time. Lets say that I have
to get some programs for computer from one of my friends and it might take a

  • Juilus and Ethel Rosenberg
    Juilus and Ethel Rosenberg The outcome of the Julius and Ethel Rosenberg Trial for espionage in 1951 and their subsequent execution in 1953 was directly related to the political climate at that time. The governments evidence against the Rosenbergs was not over whelming but due to a combination of fear and political pressure the guilty verdict was inevitable. Even though Julius did not deliver the secrets of the bomb to Moscow and nor did they cause the Korean war, as Judge Kaufman claimed, they

    no Gun control isn\'t about guns its about control. Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants, they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. This is the premise that a nationally known organization, the NRA stands behind. They believe that our forefathers inclu

    ALCATRAZ ISLAND AND PRISON Alcatraz Island has quite a distinct history. Many people know that Alcatraz served as a federal prison, but most are reluctant to know that this island served as fort. Built before the Civil War, it served two main purposes. First, that it was to guard the San Francisco bay area from enemy ships against a foreign invasion, and second, to hold hostage prisoners of war or POW\'s as they were called. In this report, I\'ll show you how this fortress came to be a federal p

America\'s entry into World War II posed opportunities for American women domestically, yet paradoxically heightened fears in the polity about the exact role that women should adopt during wartime. A central issue that dominated women\'s lives during this period was how to combine the private sphere of the home, with the new demands of the war economy in the public sphere. Women made significant gains in the military, the war economy

The Crisis was ultimately a showdown between the United States and the Soviet Union from October 16 to October 28, 1962. During those thirteen stressful days, the world’s two biggest superpowers stood on the brink of a nuclear catastrophe.

For many, the 1960s was a decade in which their dreams about America might be fulfilled. For Martin Luther King Jr., this was a dream of a truly equal America; for John F. Kennedy, it was a dream of a young vigorous nation that would put a man on the moon; and for the hippy movement, it was one of love, peace, and freedom. The 1

    history of labor in america The Industrial Revolution was dawning in the United States. At Lowell, Massachusetts, the construction of a big cotton mill began in 1821. It was the first of several that would be built there in the next 10 years. The machinery to spin and weave cotton into cloth would be driven by water power. All that the factory owners needed was a dependable supply of labor to tend the machines. As most jobs in cotton factories required neither great strength nor special skills,
