agree a teen curfew needs to be implemented. The curfew for my teens is 8 PM precisely because of the teen issues in Birmingham after dark.

I also read this article based on the "strange car" headline. I was wondering if it was strange like an Autorama reject solar powered General Lee? Was it strange for Birmingham like a 1995 Dodge Shadow?

Why not just make the curfew for black teens? That seems what you're trying to do.

Wait Staff: Should we also make teens who stay in Detroit, Southfield, and Pontiac use different parking structures. Or perhaps, dare I say, a different entrance to businesses? And different drinking fountains too?! I was a teenager once. I'm from Huntington Woods. Let me tell you- ALL teenagers behave badly. I've seen some real snots who stay in Birmingham and West Bloomfield. I used to work in downtown Birmingham and they were just as bad as any other teenager. Why, you might ask? Because they're teenagers. It's what they do. Racism definitely isn't going to make them behave any better.
