MIDDLEBOROUGH – Police in Middleborough wonâ€™t be able to write tickets for swearing in public until the state attorney generalâ€™s office determines if the new bylaw is constitutional.
That process could take months, and at least one person thinks the new bylaw might not go into effect.
Selectman Stephen McKinnon tells The Enterprise of Brockton that his gut feeling is that the attorney general wonâ€™t pass the bylaw. He says good behavior and common courtesy canâ€™t be legislated.
Residents in Middleborough last week voted to approve a proposal from the police chief to impose a $20 fine on public profanity.
Officials say the proposal wasnâ€™t 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.
