I love New Jersey, but its official… I’m going to move to Michigan because it is now illegal to annoy people. OMG, I think this is the coolest law EVER! And I HATE the law! HA!In Brighton Michigan the City Council approved a public conduct code Monday night which now can fine someone up to $500 for being annoying. Does the money go to the city or to the person being annoyed? That makes a difference. what happens after several offenses, is there jail time? I think this is so cool.
Part of the bill reads(remember the SchoolHouse Rock things, a bill becomes a law, so this is still a bill):
It shall be unlawful for a person to engage in a course of conduct or repeatedly commit acts that alarm or seriously annoy another person and that serve no legitimate purpose.
It also states its unlawful for anyone to insult, accost, molest, or otherwise annoy a person in public. So no more calling that cashier a stupid bitch or it will cost you more than poorly bagged groceries. However, I do find a problem with the fact that they said the ordinance will be subjective and the call will be made by police officers.. BBOOO!! We all know the boys in blue are annoying as heck, they should be automatically fined at least once by default because sometimes, cops can just be downright jerks.
