Wow, I just read this thread.

Mad, I don't know what world you're living in, but I sure do want to move there! Sounds so much better than the real world. :-b Oh, and using cinema's ideas of enlightenment was pretty weak, enough to detract from all your other excellent points. Let's turn back the tape/page and see what the creators of Back to the Future, 1984, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and several other futuristic works predicted the future would hold.

Fact is, the Internet era has exposed the young'uns to much, much more than it did in the good ol' days. Bad things have worked their way into young people's social encounters and become part of their vocabularies, attitudes, etc. Is it a shame? Of course. But a 17-year-old girl was in panic mode and it is incumbent on the trained professional to see that and look past it, focusing on the job of saving lives.

I gotta admit though, things would be much, much better if everyone followed your standard. Space for one more? O:-)

Doesn't matter if I agree with the law or don't agree with the law, my opinion is one of 300 million opinions, so I'm way too small and insignificant as to actually have an impact on the law. The F word in public lands people with tickets and using it does offend people. Neither of those things are my opinions or thoughts, simply facts. Urinating in public is illegal due to the exact same decency laws, public sexual gratification is as well, public nudity, public intoxication, etc, etc, etc, and the list goes on. And those laws will continue to grow unless human beings as a whole grow up just a bit and start giving the same respect they expect to receive from others, to other people as well. The "droopy pants" law is a perfect example of the decency laws growing simply because the human race hasn't grown up enough yet.

People can disagree with those laws all they like, but it doesn't change anything, they are only digging themselves a hole and making themselves look bad when breaking them anyway. Pretty silly for "enlightened" adults to do that, and I fail to see the benefit of it. I only see the disadvantages of it, which is why I find the topic interesting. I mean dropping an F bomb while talking to a police officer? What possible good could come from that? Zero. Not one thing. On the flipside, they could get a ticket, they could offend the officer, they make themselves look like idiots, and possibly they don't get the kind of reaction they want or need. So why do it? Really makes no sense at all.

"Young" is relative and isn't necessarily based only on her age. 17 is young in my world, and cussing at a police officer is quite immature, so she's far from grown. There's a 14 year old kid in my neighborhood that mows laws, and he's more grown than she is even though he's 3 years younger.

There's plenty of space and the country would be much better off if people gave the kind of respect that they themselves expect to receive. Not breaking the law would be welcomed as well of course.
