The time we are living in is called the End Game by some. When laughter - for any reason is a criminal offence then End Game sounds appropriate. When
we live in an age where an intellectually challenged person laughs - for whatever reason and is cited and charged - the end is near.
The end of civility - the end of compassion - the end of joy - the end of reason. As a former Police officer albeit in another country - there is
always the option of a verbal warning. The officer records the time, date place etcetera so that her/his whereabouts are recorded and attending the
job is documented. A verbal warning is recorded and it is a win win situation - no one gets hurt.
Let's go a little further - once the intellectual capacity of the person is ascertained a message can be placed on the computer system - this means
that any future calls for Police to attend the 'laughing' complaint can be addressed appropriately - is that possible in America??!!
Next point - I would have investigated the complaint a little before I started writing tickets out to anyone. I would have spoken to the neighbours
and recorded their actions - because - if they had goaded the intellectually challenged person - I would have been looking at very different charges
if you get my drift!!!!
Much Peace...to all intellectually challenged people who have to tolerate the able bodied people who are compassionately challenged/disabled and
