Council takes up new curfew bill
PHILADELPHIA - October 27, 2011 (WPVI) -- Philadelphia City Council is expected to pass a stricter curfew for minors on Thursday.
The bill would require three separate curfews for three different age groups, and it would hold parents liable if their children act out.
Critics say it would unfairly punish law abiding children.
Changes to current curfew were sparked by the violent flash mobs.
