Today on Your Call: Do youth curfews make a city safer?

On today's Your Call we’ll have a debate about youth curfews and their impact. A number of cities around the Bay already have them in place.  City Council member, Noel Gallo, has proposed one for Oakland. So how would this be enforced?  What are the ultimate goals?  And what are the consequences? How would a youth curfew affect you, your family, and your community? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Holly Kernan and You.
