Espejo RED 1 “San Francisco, Houston, Washington, Oklahoma City, New Haven, Conn., Kinston, N.C., and the New York communities of Rochester, Oswego, Fulton, East Syracuse, Sample and Wyoming County – those are just some of the places that have created, expanded, restored or considered curfews over the past several months [of 2006]” (11) These cities that have “created, expanded, restored or considered curfews” demonstrates how widely curfews are used in America, from huge cities like SF and Houston to smaller ones like Oswego, NY. This quotation would be great in my background section. I need to better understand how many cities presently use curfews. Maybe lots since 2006?
