CSU Says: Keep Kids at Home

The general secretary of the opposition CSU, the Christian Democrat’s Bavarian sister party, has proposed a new way to stop juvenile crime: ban kids under 14 from going out alone after 8 p.m. In an interview published with the Bild am Sonntag newspaper, Markus Söder proposed changing Germany’s youth protection law to incorporate the idea. Söder said that state support and guardianship rights should be taken away from parents, who don’t keep track of their kids. Teenage crime is a growing concern, said Söder, and added that German youth are increasingly using weapons in the course of criminal acts.
