(NW Florida Daily News)   Sheriff thinks he will control rowdy spring breakers by going on Social Media and letting those whippersnappers know what won't be tolerated. "They will tell their friends, 'We can't get snockered. Don't go there' "   ( divider line

illannoyin: TFA says they had 500 arrests last year. @ $2,000 each if they repeat that this year a cool mil would do wonders for the city budget!

Maybe we could stop viewing community policing as a for-profit industry? Crazy I know

Want to reduce the number of noise complaints? Take a tip from Naperville Illinois. They have been making money off this little gem for years...

Amplifier permit ordinance

It's a long read but here's the revenue generating bit...

"3-9-5: PENALTY: Any person violating any provision of this Chapter shall be fined not less than fifty dollars ($50.00) nor more than five hundred dollars ($500.00) for each offense, and a separate offense shall be deemed committed on each day during or on which a violation occurs or continues. (1960 Code, § 23.106)"

They had a problem with kids playing their car stereos too loud so they created that ordinance. They also had too many kids "cruising" the downtown so they passed another ordinance that fined people for it...


Again, the cash cow quote...

"Most people visit Naperville's Riverwalk to see the quaint covered wooden bridge, the flower-shaped fountain, the willows draped over the stream.

But there's another sight visitors can't miss: the squad car stationed near the park's entrance, with two officers watching like sentinels.

Most evenings one officer is out there calling out the license plates of every car that rolls by. The second officer types the numbers into a laptop computer.

When a car passes three times, the computer sounds an alarm and police fine the driver $75. That happened 22 times this summer as police enforced a new city "anti-cruising" ordinance aimed at teenagers."

Make the fines high. Like $2,000 for noise, underage drinking, etc. during spring break. Make the minimum sentence either 30 days or you can pay a special 'spring break' fee (maybe an extra $1,000) to avoid the jail time. All fines and fees would of course be in addition to the cost of any property damage you commit.

If your parents can afford to send you to the beach for spring break they can afford to bail you out if you fark up. If not you can sit in jail for 30+ days and miss finals.

Enjoy your very expensive life lesson kids!
