Regulating Misbehavior

Posted Friday, March 2, 2007

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

Suburbs are finding new ways to increase safety and preserve the integrity of neighborhoods: fine the parents and punish the landlords. Bedford wants to fine parents whose children constantly commit crimes that fall under the umbrella of disorderly conduct. A law in Shaker Heights would penalize landlords for tenants' criminal behavior. Will the measures restore quality of life or violate civil rights? Is regulating misbehavior a good idea or a step too far? Join Regina Brett for the discussion Friday morning on The Sound of Ideas.



Michael Ciaravino, Mayor Maple Heights; Jeff Gamso, legal director, Ohio ACLU; Ken Schuman, prosecutor & law director City of Bedford; Bill Gruber, chief counsel, Shaker Heights
