Civil Rights Violation….?
Michigan Suburb Tickets People For Swearing, Fine Is $200
I didn’t know you could restrict a persons right to swear no matter how offensive.
In one of the comments after the article a person stated that it was actually a violation of skateboarding where it was prohibited when the swearing occurred. And it was claimed by the commenter that the story itself was inaccurate.
Too bad Brighton doesn’t have a park for the teenagers. Not to encourage swearing, but to skateboard.
From the article:
Colin Andersen told the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell that he was simply venting when he swore after a friend was ticketing for skateboarding in Brighton, a community about 35 miles northwest of Detroit.
