You Learn Something New Every Day

Tuesday, October 07, 2008

I'm preparing a session with the youth at the church about politics, rights, and decision making. Part of that preparation has been researching laws that apply specifically to young people. Here's some of what I discovered:
  • In the city where most of these young people live, it is illegal to operate a tattoo parlor (that one doesn't apply specifically to youth, but it doesn't not apply either).
  • In the same city, "It is unlawful for any minor under the age of eighteen years to loiter, idle, wander, stroll, or aimlessly drive or ride about in or upon any public street, avenue, highway, road, curb area, alley, park, playground, or other public ground, public place, or public building, place of amusement or eating place, vacant lot or unsupervised place between the hours of ten p.m. on any day and sunrise of the immediately following day.
  • The minimum age requirement to run for Governor in the state of California is 18.
  • It is illegal in the state of California to perform a body piercing on a minor without the parent or guardian's actual presence or notarized written authority.
  • It is a misdemeanor to tattoo or offer to tattoo a young person under the age of 18 in California.
