Yes, the curfew law targets where Black children frequent most and violates the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment

Yes, because the curfew law also gives the Cleveland Hts city manager authority to bar kids from other areas independently

No because the constitution should not apply if we fear our own children and we hope it applies to adults in the near future

We fear our own children

And we don't know how to help them grow into adults.  All of the above should be an option, too :) 

This does also call into question the legality of any curfew law.  Cleveland has a curfew law and it is not rigorously enforced.  I sometimes wish that it was, but who is to say when and where any one should be stopped and hassled?
