Bridgeport councilman calls for harsher youth curfew
Bridgeport residents had the chance to speak out tonight about a possible plan to enforce the city's controversial youth curfew.
City Councilman Warren Blunt wants all children under 17 to be indoors by 11:00 p.m.
However, the American Civil Liberties Union slammed the idea in a letter to the City Council, saying it's a constitutional violation.
An ACLU attorney said they'd challenge the law in court, if necessary.
A joint committee will meet tomorrow to try to decide whether they think the curfew is feasible.
If so, the full council will vote on it at a later date.
