Video – Curfew opponents interviewed after CAB meeting

We’ve now uploaded several excerpts of Monday’s Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board meeting, where the proposed youth curfew ordinance was discussed. The clips can be played in sequence as a playlist, or viewed individually. At this point, they include:

Below are the post-meeting interviews with Jim Zepp, Leah Muskin-Pierret, and Darian Unger.

Jim Zepp is a director of the Justice Research and Statistics Association (JRSA).
“Debating the pros and cons of a curfew is actually a distraction; what we really need to be doing is convening all the stakeholders here in Downtown Silver Spring… and talking about how we can manage a successful downtown Silver Spring entertainment district.”

Leah Muskin-Pierret is a Montgomery Blair High School student and co-founder of “Stand Up to the Montgomery County Curfew.”
“[Tonight’s meeting] was slightly better than last meeting in that the first half was still an infomercial — it tends to run that way — but by the second half there was some dissent being heard.”

Darian Unger is a member of the Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board.
UNGER: “One of the amendments [to the ordinance] includes an exception for those exercising their First Amendment rights… Could you enumerate those?”
AIDE: “…any First Amendment rights — your worshiping, your religious service… political protest… any of your enumerated First Amendment rights.”
UNGER: “I’m waiting for assembly to come up.”
