...has been charged with ridicule on account of race, creed or color

What about ridicule on account of weight?...or looks...or stature...or intelligence? Maybe we should outlaw all ridicule

The "Self-Esteem" society would like just that. Except for the ridicule they use on those who oppose them.

"WOMAN ARRESTED AFTER 'RACIST LANGUAGE' AT TACO BELL "

Viewed in a certain light, Taco Bell food is an ethnic slur.

In a similar expericence, I was thrown out of the 7-11 after venting my frustration at the clerk not being able to locate Camel Filters in a box, by calling him a "chalupa".

Byrd's supervisor told police that Byrd should not have been working the drive-through because he had gotten into a similar incident with another customer

What's happening lately?!!!! Are cops taking stupid pills or something?

Does this mean we can finally have hollyweird types arrested for ridiculing Christians? How about other MSM types?

...charged with ridicule on account of race, creed or color and second-degree breach of peace.

I must have missed the disclaimer in the Bill of Rights where it says, "not valid in Connecticut." I can maybe see a charge of disorderly conduct, but no way is the act of ridiculing someone on the basis of race, religion, or anything else illegal.

I've heard lots of reports of "being cursed at " that do not pan out. I remember an employee where I work who was written up by his supervisor for dicking off all day. The employee tried to appeal to me that the supervisor "cursed at him". Turned out he'd said something like "I told you two to stop talking and get to work, dammit!" I let him fill out his little "appeal" form, but I told him the "cursing" complaint was pretty lightweight stuff.

People who make complaints make it sound as if they were called every name in the book, when oftentimes, it was just a "hell" or "damn" that was uttered.

Some people have about as much respect for the First Amendment as they do the Second Amendment.

This whole situation is idiotic. If two people get into an argument and one is a preferred minority, all they have to do is accuse the other of making a racial comment and the other is arrested.

I guarantee it has happened many times, although it doesn't always end in arrest.
