            By next year, most of our youths will have been eradicated by the wolves that are running rampant.

            I think this is a good thing. There is no reason at all youths need to be roaming around town all hours of the night, especially when school is in session. The late night hours are when kids are most likely going to be tempted to do foolish things like vandalism or car prowlings, and this would help a lot to prevent alot of this bad behaviour. I personally think this should be expanded county wide, as it is also a safety issue, there are unfortunately some unsavory people in our community who might try to harm or abuse a minor they found wandering the streets late at night.

            I remember an incident as a teen (I was 16 at the time, this was back in the early 90s), I had a friend who frequently spent the night with me at my mothers house, and we would go out and roam around town, and one night we passed a bar and a large, middle aged man came out, apparently half drunk, and first tried to convince us to get in his car and go home with him 'to have some fun', then offered us money to do so, and when we refused and tried to leave, he chased us and tried to force us into his car. We ran away, and went by a house where a large group of college age people were having some sort of party, so I ran up and asked for help, and they went ballistic when we told them what the man did, and all the guys at the party ran down the street after him and scared him away.

            Its reasons like this this, that minors should be at home, SAFE, at night, and not roaming around town.
