$500 Fine For Naughty Words

Terry Duncan hasn't lived in Milwaukee for a very long time, but he learned that there are at least two words that you cannot say on a Milwaukee bus.
One of the words starts with F and the other with S. An undercover Sheriff Department Deputy threw Duncan off the bus and slapped him with a $500 summons.
Duncan says that he did not direct the words toward any individual and that he was unaware of the law.
A spokesman for the Sheriff's department says that the statute's violation is a quality-of-life issue.
I applaud the Sheriff's enforcement of this law! The way that some people speak in public is fornicated up!
