Greensboro parents, teens meet to discuss curfew
GREENSBORO, N.C. — A large crowd of parents, teens, city leaders and others turned out at the Main Library in Greensboro Wednesday night to discuss the teen curfew’s pros and cons, and how to prevent what prompted the measure in the first place.
Some parents at the meeting expressed a need for a positive place for teens to gather in the summer months.
“I’m concerned that the young kids out there that need to be at the house instead of coming downtown, messing with all the grown folks and stuff, and the police have to taze everybody else from coming downtown,” said Natalie Carmichael, a concerned parent.
The curfew bans individuals ages 17 and under from being downtown from 11 p.m to 6 a.m.
