Ahh, Gary.
I've always considered Gary to be South Side Chicago, sort of like East Chicago.
You know what I mean.

They aren't telling you how to raise your child!! It actually is for the protection of your child. What don't you understand?


Don't bother arguing... he/she's clearly a proudly irresponsible parent.


Yeah because a responsible parent needs the state/city to tell him/her what time his/her kid has to be inside.

Common sense maybe?

Irresponsible parents won't care about curfew times either so i fail to see your point to begin with.

OK, I grew up in NYC. I was out side playing out fielders in 77 (lob fly balls back and forth across the street) when the Yanks beat the snot out of the Dodgers. It was dark. We had about 2 hours after sunset to be in. We had a one to two block radius that we could go. I was 5. Really.

By the time we were 10 - 12 we were riding the subway and playing in the park WAY after dark. Our parents were good. They knew where we were going and how we were getting home. We would roll in a pack. The spots that we went to were visible and in public view. This conditioned us. As we got older and the whole city became our world we were way beyond ready to make new friends and experience..well...more!

I know what you mean. When kids have the run of a city they turn into little adults. In grade school my hubby & his buds used to walk down to a local restaurant for lunch. They behaved, tipped the waitress and got their butts back to school. Now days there's closed campuses and some kids can't even behave in restaurants with parents there. Idk all the crime has freaked parents out and they in turn have somewhat socially retarded kids.

We had a curfew in Gary and the problems for us was corrupt police. If the cops caught us out after curfew they didn't drive us home, they'd take us to the city jail. Parents would have to drive downtown Gary and get our sorry asses. Parents weren't happy about this and Gary jail was no place for kids....fully aware of this fact some cops were willing to make an offer. I was warned by several girls that certain Gary cops would drive you home, instead of jail, if you treated them nice. I jumped into bushes or hid behind cars if I saw a cop coming.

Most kids growing up in a city are pretty street wise. They probably know more about what's going on than the parents. I walked through ethnic neighborhoods because they were safer but were jammed packed with single men who came to work in the mill. The only English they knew was pornographic but they were harmless. People today would be horrified if anyone talked to their precious daughter like that. BTW I was in high school by then. This neighborhood was safe just obnoxious. Curfews are needed for clueless kids, not too many of those on the streets of Chicago or to protect clueless adults, lots more of them.

We used to drive through there to get to the city. I remember the water tower in Whiting. I do miss seeing all that industry sometimes, the harbors and draw bridges. The locks on the Chicago river are pretty cool. I miss the lake. Oh and the Magikist lips sign off the hgwy I'll never forget that. Looked at it for hours waiting in traffic on Easter Sunday on the way to a Zepplin concert. Good memories.

I think you are over exaggerating. This is about curfews for young kids in Chicago. To understand where the mayor comes from...he's Jewish and Jewish parents do have strict curfews on their children.

I can't stand Rahm Emanuel, I know who he is and where his father comes from and what Benjamin Emanuel was.......but I have to agree with Rahm Emanuel on this new law.


So, you are saying that if I take my child on a wednesday or saturday to Navy pier to see the fireworks, that upon leaving I should get a fine for having her out after 8:30?

freaking ridiculous. I understand where he is coming from, I live in Chicago. I want the freedom to choose. don't let dirtbag parents who let their kids run wild dictate to me what time I have to have my daughter home.

If accompanied with a parent, it is acceptable for the child to be out. You know that. We have a curfew here in Indiana too, and it's been on the books for decades.

Listen people, you really have to wake up. This curfew is not being implemented because the good mayor wants to make sure that the children are safe or to make sure they aren't committing crimes. The government couldn't care less about us or our children. Don't you know that we adults are next? The streets of Chicago and the streets of every other major city in the U.S. have intentionally been let to get out of control so that new laws such as this could be implemented to take our freedoms away bit by bit, piece by piece. Do you all really think that it's going to stop at our children? Seriously? I grew up in a home with a single mom with five children. We had to be in front of the house when the street lights came on. Granted, during the summer time my mom would allow us to stay out and play well into the night, but in front of the house. She allowed my brother to stay out later because he was a boy. That was my mother's rule and for the most part we abided by it. Get it -- my mother's rule, not the government's. When we didn't do what my mother said, we had to suffer the consequences from my mother and no one else, which is the way it is supposed to be. Everybody is not raised the same way and no one should impose their beliefs on others, including and especially not the government. Look what they've done and are doing to us! They have imploded the economy intentionally, resulting in thousands being homeless. They won't assist in that problem though will they?

What most people do not understand is that we are all sovereign and do not have to abide by random rules and statutes that the government writes in for us. I think we have forgotten that the government is paid by US (by jacking our salaries illegally) to do for US what WE THE PEOPLE want, not the other way around. If we allow them to continue to dictate to us then it is a dictatorship. You have to see the big picture here. Slowly the government has been taking away our rights as parents and very soon our rights altogether. Remember, they stopped us from spanking our children so that they could get out of control then they built more prisons for them. They can't do this to us unless we allow it. Personally, I'm not going to allow it. I have one son who is 16 years old. I give him more freedom to stay our later because I choose to. I'm not going to handicap my child mentally by keeping him in fear of life and people and the dark because somebody tells me to. I know where he is during the daytime and during the night and that's good enough for me because that's all that is important to me.

Wake up people!! If we let this start happening, it's going to spread everywhere. It's just the tip of the iceberg. Martial law is coming for the adults. Will you fight back then?

This is one law that needs to be, from experience a mother of nine children this law will be a plus. The point is to deter not to infer. Their is no reason for children under 12 to be out in the streets of Chicago past these times. I grew up in Chicago it's not like it used to be. Kudos to Rahm for this and i'm not a fan of a wall street banker being mayor of CHI-TOWN.

You may feel that there is no reason for a 12-year-old child to be out past 8:30, and that's your right -- for your children. The point is, no one has a right to tell you how to raise your child. If there are children out there committing crimes then they should be arrested and dealt with accordingly. That does not mean all parents have to keep their kids under lock and key whose children are not out there committing crimes. There are alot of good parents that do know where their children are past 8:30 when they aren't at home. Each parent knows what their child needs. It's not up to the government to decide for the parent. Will you say it's for the best and "Kudos to Rahm" when he tells YOU to be in the house by 8:30 -- it's called martial law and best believe that's next. Don't you get it? If they get away with telling us how to raise our children, then we become the children.

No offens, but YOU chose to have nine children and you alone are responsible for them. You're responsibile for setting the rules for your children and chastisiing your children as you feel is appropriate, not someone else telling you how to do it. If you need help controlling them, give them to the state to raise, but don't say that everybody's child is out of control and needs to be in the house. It's not right.
