The idea is backed by council President Larry Reid and Ignacio de la Fuente. But, the <em>East Bay Express</em> has published reports showing that youth curfews don’t work. The most recent data available from the California Department of Justice shows that felony youth crime has dropped substantially in Oakland, plummeting 26.4 percent from 2001 through 2010.
