I’ll let this one introduce itself.
The Brighton City Council on Thursday approved an ordinance allowing police in the Livingston County community to ticket and fine anyone who is annoying in public “by word of mouth, sign or motions.”
Welcome to West Michigan-style legislation. As J– called it, this is a bunch of fuddy-duddies grumping over “those damned kids”, but moving their crotchetiness into civics.
A city attorney says there could be situations where the measure would violate freedom of speech…
Yah think? I can’t wait for some well-funded smart-ass to walk around Brighton screaming Blessings From God at passerbys, just to get cited, and then sue the friggen pants off the city. What a bunch of dumb-ass, over-bearing, holier-than-thou bull this is.
Feels just like my hometown.
