Massachusetts Town Issues Tickets To Swearing Teenagers

What the heck? I wonder what will happen when the parents of this town discover “television”.

At a town meeting Monday night, residents voted 183-50 to approve a proposal from the police chief to impose a $20 fine on public profanity.

Officials insist the proposal was not intended to censor casual or private conversations, but instead to crack down on loud, profanity-laden language used by teens and other young people in the downtown area and public parks.

Pictured: Goddam teenagers.

The ordinance gives police discretion over whether to ticket someone if they believe the cursing ban has been violated.
