Inquiry to Arlington About Anti-Profanity Law

ARLINGTON, VA - The following letter was sent to Arlington County Government regarding their new anti-profanity law.

Hello, I am the editor of the WashCo Chronicle, and I'd like to learn a bit more about your recent anti-profanity law.

Is there a list of words which are considered profanity?

Is only English profanity prohibited, or is profanity in other languages also prohibited? Are officers properly trained in recognizing profanity in languages other than English?

Are there signs informing visitors to Arlington County of this law?

Do you feel this law will have a positive or negative impact on Arlington County? How?

Thank you for your time!

Ken Buckler
Editor, WashCo Chronicle
