Massachusetts Town Passes Swearing Fine

06.12.12 09:53 AM

MIDDLEBORO, Mass., (UPI) — A Massachusetts town passed a $20 fine for swearing in public, but the police chief said officers do not have a list of words to work from.

Middleboro Police Chief Bruce Gates told the 297 residents attending the Monday night meeting, which also passed fines for smoking marijuana in public and shoveling snow into the street, that he does not have a list of swear words for officers to use in giving out the $20 citations, The Enterprise, Brockton, Mass., reported Tuesday.

Gates said it would be up to the individual officers to use their discretion.

“I don’t see an issue, we have a lot of things to do. This is not a priority,” he said.

The swearing fine was approved by a 183-50 vote.
