Diverted

On Friday, September 25, the San Diego Police Department conducted a curfew sweep in the Mid-City area. Forty-three juveniles under the age of 18 who violated the 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew were picked up and brought in to the command post set up at Fay Elementary School on 52nd Street.

After processing, approximately 95 percent of those detained were deemed "divertible" and placed in diversion programs offered by various community and faith-based organizations, thereby avoiding court and fines. The remaining curfew violators were considered "not divertible" due to prior criminal records, outstanding warrants, or a history of non-compliance with diversion-program policies.

Organizations on-hand at the command post when the youth were brought in included Inner City Youth (ICY), Price Charities, and the Boys and Girls Club, which offered court-approved programs.

"Hanging out" with my friends, trying to look cool, of course. With a cigarette and a beer. Didn'tcha have any wild streak in ya way back when?

I'm not a big believer in curfews. They hold the majority accountable for the minority. Curfews for kids go against everything we as Americans hold dear and true to our hearts-freedoms from unlawful persecution to what might have been....

Sept. 29, 2009

No, my dear, I didn't, not in that way. I was chicken!

From chicken to fish, go figure!

...swimming in the right direction, at any rate ;)

Sept. 30, 2009

what time were they picked up 10:05 ?
you know how hot an stifling it was that evening. you think these kids parents have air conditioning. it dosnt even cool down during the heat wave till 12:00 am. just any reason to justify the funding .$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ everybody else making cuts , but the police getting creative to keep getting that overtime . i betcha

Sept. 29, 2009

Someday,curfews will be outlawed. We KNOW they don't work. like whyigotahaveid said,must be nice gettin' OT while the parents of these kids keep gettin' laid off. Way to continue the cycle of poverty and lost hope guys. Here's your gold star.

I got sent to juvie for breaking curfew--a lot. :( It actually delayed my education; I learned nothing from the punishment except that it might be best to slide one's little body underneath a parked car when the policeman comes along.

Golly, here's a thought that actually passed through my brain.

The "children" were breaking the law.

Oh, and by the way, they were "diverted" into programs set up especially for children who need someplace to go at 10 o'lock at night. Someplace safe and warm and with adult supervision. Which apparently they aren't getting at home.

And note, some of those "children" were not divertable. Meaning they were probably already in some sort of serious trouble with the law.

I don't get it. People talk when they have no clue what they are talking about. But I guess that's what forums are all about.

LOL! Well, at least you got something out of it!

That's too funny, though ... what was you doing running the streets at night, missy??
