Man cited for swearing in public
A Winona man has been cited for cursing in public under a local law created back in 1887.
Police say 19-year-old Lucas Charles Wilcox was cited Wednesday after he yelled obscenities at officers who had earlier given him a ticket for underage drinking.
Officers say they could hear Wilcox cursing at them from a block away. Several neighbors say they also heard the shouting.
Police normally issue disorderly conduct tickets in similar situations, but Deputy Police Chief Tom Williams says officers use discretion to choose the most appropriate charge.
Violating Winona's obscenity law is a misdemeanor, with a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
