"Move Milwaukee's curfew up to 9 p.m. to keep the kids safe."

"Move Milwaukee's curfew up to 9 p.m. to keep the kids safe."

By John Mercure. CREATED Jun 17, 2014

30 Milwaukee children have been shot this year.  30!  And we're not even to the most violent part of the Milwaukee summer, which is traditionally July and August.  It's awful.

Yesterday Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett weighed in, calling the shootings 'insane'

It seems everyone is looking for answers.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel columnist James Causey believes Milwaukee ought to do what they have just recently begun to do in Baltimore.

On June 4th the Baltimore City Council passed a new curfew bill after two teens were killed in within a week. Kids under the age of 13 need to be inside by 9 p.m.  Causey believes that is something Milwaukee city leaders should consider.

James Causey joins Wisconsin's Afternoon News to tell us about it.
