OAKLAND (KCBS) — The Oakland City Council’s Public Safety Committee will consider a curfew proposal for the city’s youth on Tuesday night. The proposal—the third in the last several years—comes as 11 minors have been killed in gun violence this year.
The curfew would start at 10 p.m. every night and from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on school days. Oakland City Councilman Noel Gallo, who proposed the curfew, said his intention was not to arrest children.
“Because all their going to do is come out dumber from prison or probation,” he said.
