Miami Police are enforcing a curfew for children under the age of 17, citing safety. Curfew hours are 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday to Thursday and midnight to 6 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
Children under 17 are not allowed to "linger, stay, congregate, move about, wander, or stroll in any public place in Miami-Dade County, either on foot or in a vehicle during curfew hours," according to police.
Players for Team Pete Basketball said they don't like the move.
"I don't really need a curfew," Keith Stewart said, "but I do feel that a curfew is important because young kids like my age are dying in the streets."
Other Miami youths said they support the curfew.
"Make them go home, do a little homework, get them home early," Robert Sanchez said.
