City of Clinton has a 11pm curfew for all citizens.

Adults, too.

quote:

Chief Dunn said the first time you will get let off with a verbal warning, the second a summons and the third could land you a court date.


Is this sort of freedom-trampling acceptable as long as it is done by local governments and the majority of voters approve? It's all for your safety.

I think they're probably Democrats, but it's local politics which both parties prone to supporting the police-state, so long as the law enforcement heads and judges are people they know.

This could really hurt Clinton's tourism.

What difference, at this point...11pm, does it make?

If I see a vehicle at 2:00 in the morning continually driving around a neighborhood, I want the driver of that vehicle to be questioned as to why he's in that neighborhood at that time of the morning," stated Clinton Police Chief Fred Dunn.


I didn't realize it was illegal to drive on public streets.

I didn't realize it was the cops (government) business to know where, how, and the time I drive.

What if I want to drive in circles around my neighborhood listening to Coast to Coast am or Phil Hendrie on the radio?

I'm tempted to go drive around Clinton late tonight.

That lady that works at the gas station would probably harbor you if the cops starting chasing. She sounded pretty against this initiative.

It's much more interesting doing it to their face - politely of course.

Never had a bad run in with the law man. Three times I have been stopped for speeding. All three times they tried to let me off when they saw I was military. First two times I just got a warning. Third time I told the young man (Virginia state trooper) to write up the ticket ($150). Told him if I had not been speeding he and I would not be talking. He explained to me at length how to go to court and get the ticket thrown out.

Is it relevant whether or not the roads that are closed to the public are state highways vs. county/city roads?

I like leaving most gov't decisions at this level of politics. It's the easiest to change and most responsive to the people it serves.

With that said, this seems a little over the top.

Unfortunately, it's easiest for the wrong people to change the local laws to fit their desires. I think it works best in larger cities where there's enough checks and balances, yet it isn't ginormous like the Federal government, but small towns and many cities are EASY for a network of movers and shakers to corrupt.

I experienced some corrupt local governments in Mexico that were basically unchecked by the Feds. It led to local bosses that you had to grease, and then they supported local reps in the federal government. My company had to plan ahead and budget for bribes.

Don't even try to drive in Madison after 10 pm at night. They tail you closely, pull your name up on their computer to see your house number, then pull back and follow behind to make sure you pull up in your driveway.

Local is usually the most restrictive BUT, it's also the easiest to avoid.

this is probably unconstitutional.
