Description : Abstract
David Boeri reports that Ray Flynn (Mayor of Boston) is considering a curfew for teenagers in the city of Boston, in the wake of the murder of Kimberly Ray Harbor (murder victim) on Franklin Field. Boeri reviews the details of Harbor's murder. Boeri's report includes footage of the murder suspects entering a courtroom. Boeri notes that the curfew would prohibit teenagers from being on the streets after 11:00 pm on weeknights and after 12:00am on weekends. Boeri interviews a group of pre-adolescent African American boys about the curfew. The boys are playing basketball on an outdoor court. The boys discuss gang activity and violence in their neighborhood. The boys say that the curfew is a good idea because it will protect people from violence on the streets. Boeri notes that many teenagers declined to be interviewed for the report. Boeri's report is accompanied by a photo of Harbor and by footage of city officials gathered on Franklin Field.
