Breaking KCMO Curfew Will Cost Parents

Fair warning of this policy shift that hopes to enforce just a bit of responsibility amid a siege of local crime. Checkit: Parents could face significant fines for summer curfew violations

Good luck trying to collect from parents who have already proven themselves to be deadbeats by allowing their spawn to run rampant through the city.

The story actually shows the curfew to be a laughable, but predictable, failure. Once the cops catch kids breaking curfew, there's nothing the cops can do with them. No place to put them, calling child services or the parents will take most of the night, just let them go and admonish them to sin no more. Right.

They should be fined heavily. I mean, what does a 14 year old need at a party district for adults? These parents are going to learn today!

"Parents" ????? HA! Good luck with that one.

There are no parents in KCMO. All the parents moved their kids to the suburbs.

It'll take away their clubbin money.

RE: "Parents could face significant fines for summer curfew violations"


Key word is "COULD"!!

Follow-up examination would reveal that likely ZERO parents have paid a $500 fine for their child's curfew violation. It's PURE B.S threats from City Hall.

Holy Shit!!! I mean City Manager Troy Schulte won't even pay his delinquent property tax bill to Jackson County.

We now have adult children with their own little rugrats. I know that even the best parents can have them "slip through the cracks". Kids lie, sneak out, and do all kinds of things that Mom and Dad may not know about. When they get caught, good parents take care of it. I think I would give everybody a break the first time the little darling got caught breaking curfew. If the problem persists (i.e. the second time), then parents should pay. When it hits their wallets, somehow the problem will get fixed.

Do they have alligators at Swope Park? Just a thought.
