A city is threatening trick-or-treaters over the age of 12 with jail time

This seems a little crazy…

From CBS:

The city of Chesapeake, Virginia, is attempting to keep the “trick” part of trick-or-treating to a minimum by threatening jail time for Halloween troublemakers over 12 years old. However, the city says it won’t be “actively seeking out violations.”

The city’s ordinance code states if anyone over 12 years of age participates in “trick or treat” or any similar activity, “he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $25.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than six months or both.”
