Ah, Sh*t: Florida Police Chief Wants to Ban Public Obscenities

A Florida town is attempting to crack down on one particular incitement to violence: profanity. Yep, the police chief in Neptune Beach is pushing for a new ordinance to let police cite people if they drop a cuss word or two in public and it leads to a public brawl.

So what was the f*cking problem that led to this in the first place? Well, last July 4th things got a little out of hand in Neptune Beach, and Police Chief David Sembach wants some limits on public profanity. He said, “They can curse all they want. That’s what the U.S. Supreme Court says. They just can’t incite another person to violence.”

The mayor, however, told WTEV she doesn’t support that ordinance, and doesn’t really know how that could be enforced.
