A Cleveland shopping mall is restricting children 17 and under from entering the mall during certain weekend hours because of many fights. The decision was made after police had to break up a post-Christmas ruckus with pepper spray. Hundreds of people were involved in that fight.
Since that incident, other malls in Ohio, and all around the US, have decided to do the same sort of restrictions. The new rules: juveniles must be accompanied by a parent or an adult 21 years or older after 5pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Mall security guards will be stationed at entrances to ask teens and their adult supervisors to show identification. Unaccompanied children must leave the mall at 5pm.
What do you think of this new rule and do you think it will be effective?
