Stealing more acceptable than swearing? Sounds like something you would hear out of Jersey.

Middleborough Police Chief Proposes $20 Fine For Swearing


MIDDLEBOROUGH (CBS) – Public swearing is so bad in Middleborough that they’re considering a plan to start enforcing a longstanding but rarely-used law.

Folks in town have had enough of kids and some adults who think it’s OK to drop high-volume obscenities in their otherwise bucolic downtown.
“It’s intimidating to my customers,” says business owner Paulette Lilla, “to the people who are out here downtown, and I think it’s a good thing that they’re doing something to try to curb it.”

Former Middleborough Selectwoman Mimi Duphily says, “I don’t think it will solve the problem but it will make them understand what is acceptable behavior and what is not.”
The town’s police chief has proposed to give $20 tickets to vulgar loudmouths as a deterrent to downtown air pollution.

“We have a lot more important things to do,” says Chief Bruce Gates, “but these are things that are quality of life issues, community policing issues that a lot of people don’t want to see downtown.”
The chief will make his case for a more easily enforceable system of fines for public cursing before Town Meeting in June.

If you think a $20 ticket for swearing seems stiff, consider the fine some townspeople told me they’d prefer to see levied: $100 per curse.

I know, Trendies don't give a shit about freedom of speech.
Did you know that there are over 100 dry counties in this country.

100 counties where your right to buy booze, beer, wine, or any other spirit is being taken away from you by the fuckin gubbermint.

Oh, and not a single one is in freedom hating jersey, but colorado refuses to release the data.... what are they trying to hide?!

I actually like the idea of fines. Good luck getting those young people to pay them though...

You are fined one credit for a violation of the Verbal Morality Statute.

What words are on the list? Can they say penis? With they go by FCC guidelines? Is every language included?
I'd brush up on some good Chinese or Indian curse words and use them instead.

Is "double double toil and trouble" a $20 fine or $80 one?

That's a curse, not a swear.

So will I get fined giving testimony in a courtroom now? "whaa"

I was thinking of the part where she said Schwarzenegger was so popular that they let him be president even though he wasn't born here.
