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.

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