Florida Town Wants To Outlaw Bad Words
Neptune Beach wants to make it illegal to use profanity in public.
“There’s no place for that kind of stuff in a public forum,” beach-goer Ken Meadows said.
Neptune Beach Police Chief David Sembach doesn’t think so either. That’s why he’s pushing for several new ordinances, including obstructing public passage ways and public profanity. If the words lead to a fight and an officer witnesses it, you can be cited.
“They can curse all they want. That’s what the U.S. Supreme Court says. They just can incite another person to violence,” Sembach explained…
The Mayor of Neptune Beach tells Action News she does not support the profanity ordinance, and believes it would be hard to enforce.
