Toilet swearer faces prison
« on: October 18, 2007, 01:35:20 AM »

A woman in Pennsylvania is facing a possible 90 days in jail for swearing at her toilet.

The woman, Dawn Herb, was overheard by her neighbour as she yelled obscenities in the direction of her overflowing lavatory last Thursday.

The neighbour – an off-duty police officer – asked her to keep the noise down. When Herb carried on swearing at her toilet, the police turned up, and cited her for disorderly conduct.

This could see her facing up to 90 days jail, as well as a fine of $150 ($300).

Herb is baffled that her toilet-abusing has led to this: 'It doesn't make any sense. I was in my house. It's not like I was outside or drunk.'

She explained to local paper The Times-Tribune: 'The toilet was overflowing and leaking down into the kitchen and I was yelling (for my daughter) to get the mop.'

The American Civil Liberties Union has argued that the citation is a step too far. 'You can't prosecute somebody for swearing at a cop or a toilet,' said ACLU attorney Mary Catherine Roper.

That sounds outrageous but I am not surprised with that at all - especially in this country!  At one time here in California, two men were handcuffed for disrespecting a police officer...

While this two men, not really drunk but drunk enough to stoop down to the level of a dog, passed by a police precinct.  They were kind of making noise so the dog barked at them.  The two drunk men, stopped and barked back at the dog.  Came the policemen in uniform who arrested them.  The offense: for disrespecting a police officer.  Yes, the dog was a police officer!
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
