Neptune Beach wants to ban cursing

NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla. -- You hear it everywhere you go. Expletives, swear words, obscenities or whatever you want to call them.

"There's no place for that kind of stuff in a public forum," beach-goer Ken Meadows said.

Neptune Beach Police Chief David Sembach doesn't think so either. That's why he's pushing for several new ordinances, including obstructing public passage ways and public profanity. If the words lead to a fight and an officer witnesses it, you can be cited.

"They can curse all they want. That's what the U.S. Supreme Court says. They just can incite another person to violence," Sembach explained.

Action News went to Pete's Bar to get the locals take on the subject. Some don't like the idea, and think Freedom of Speech should always reign supreme.
