Phoenix is trying to deter potential vandals of the light-rail system by threatening criminal prosecution. Click here for the story. Although I agree that the system should be free from graffiti and trash, I’m not sure the zero tolerance policy can be upheld when it comes to “loud music” and inconsiderate behavior. The ordinance may be challenged on constitutional grounds as being vague or overly broad as well as a violation of free speech. If you believe your constitutional rights have been violated you need to speak to a civil rights attorney who is experienced in 42 USC 1983 actions.
