Pennsylvania state police agree to discontinue profanity citations

The ACLU of Pennsylvania says State Police have agreed to stop citing people for disorderly conduct when they use profanity.

Senior ACLU staff attorney Mary Catherine Roper says these citations are not unusual.

“And that’s why we started bringing these cases,” she said. “Because we are finding that police all over Pennsylvania have been issuing criminal citations because people use profanity.”
