Am I the only one disturbed by the fact that there's a "Daytime Curfew" in Bensalem?! WTF?!

It's another name for "truant." They should be in school or accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Homeschooled teens out & about would be considered criminals then. And those that attended brick-and-mortar schools with alternate calendars than the local school district. I would consider both cases to then be violations of their civil rights. I'm not saying that the above cases of citations is not without merit, what I'm concerned with is the fact that such an "ordinance" is on the books when it does not legally apply to all.

That only means they should be in school not on the streets
